The Ribbon Girl - Colour Challenge

Good Morning my lovelies.

Today I have my GDT card for The Ribbon Girl where the colour challenge is lilac/purple.
Now I've got to tell you something...if you asked me to use all "My favourite Things" then this pretty much covers it.
Favourite colours, favourite lace, favourite ribbon (the pure silk ribbon is just amazing!) and an image from one of my favourite designers.

Lavender Pure Silk Ribbon
Wooden Star Button threaded with Ivory Button Twine
Stickles Stardust Glitter Glue
White Opal Liquid Pearls
3mm and 5mm Ivory Adhesive Pearls

The sweet image is Wee One by the lovely Sylvia Zet, and it's coloured with DI markers.
The papers are from Papirgleder

There's always a fantastic prize to be won, so head on over to The Ribbon Girl Blog 
and join in.

A big thank you for all your condolences, warm wishes, cards, emails, messages and flowers.
The funeral took place yesterday and as far as funerals go, it was a lovely day.

I'm off work this week and waiting impatiently for my BFF to arrive from America.
We have a full schedule for the week ahead so I probably won't get on blogger until next week now, thank you for your patience!

Love 'n' hugs

    But this card brings a smile to my face with your impeccable coloring & perfectly placed buttons, pearls & gorgeous papers. I was so happy & a limitless jealous to hear our lovely Amanda was coming to see you. What a thrill for both of you & those craft shops better put out more supplies cuz I'm sure you two will be filling your baskets. I can't even imagine the fun you two will have.
