Good morning,

I hope you are having a good week.

I've been a little quiet on my blog, but I have been getting all my DT cards ready and playing with some mixed media, which won't be ready to showcase for a while, if it turns out O.K.. I have ordered the paints so I can move onto the next step.

Today, I am popping back in with another inspiration card for the Ribbon Girl.

I have coloured up a new digi which I saw on  Liz Marsden's blog and I loved her such much I just had to buy her. She is from All Dressed Up and called 'Flower Fairy'.

She has been coloured with DI reinkers and some stardust Stickles has been added to her wings to give some sparkle. 

The papers are brand new to the Ribbon Girl and are lush. They are by Crafts and You and are from the Rose Garden paper pad.

The dies are by Joy, Magnolia Doohickey and Marianne.

All the gorgeous embellishments are available at the Ribbon Girl.
