Sweet Stampin' Challenge

A very good morning to you all. So yesterday we saw some snow here... combined with rain right enough!

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin' and this week our theme is 

Ribbons

And you know me, I do like to be that little bit different so I decided not to go down the girly route but to go for a boy card instead! I've had this Simply Betty image printed off for ages but he's been lying in a box unloved and I came across him when I was looking for something else and decided to go with him, just to show that you can use ribbon on a boy card!

We're sponsored this week by Crafty Ribbons and our monthly sponsor is the Ribbon Girl who are offering a £10 voucher to the monthly winner.



Challenges I'd Like to Enter
Papertake - Tie Up Your Loose Ends
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Whoopsi Daisy - Use A Digi
Allsorts - Masculine

Stamps 
Jude (can't remember what he was called though and I think he's been discontinued!)- Simply Betty
Every Day Grunge Sentiments - LOTV

 Colouring Medium
Promarkers
Copics 

Cardstock
Kraft from stash

Paper 
Bo Bunny

 Embellishments 
Brown Mesh Ribbon - That Craft Place
Fabric Ribbon - from stash
Card Candy - Craftwork Cards


Oh, and Strictly.... One word, three syllables FAB-U-LOUS!! Denise and James won beating Louis and Ola into second place. I'm not sure how many of their votes came from James being bare chested and wearing a kilt for their fabulous Charleston ;)

Remember to pop by the Sweet Stampin' blog to see the rest of the ribbony inspiration the Sweeties have left for you and perhaps even join in. You must have ribbon lurking about in your stash.... but don't forget to stamp!

I will be back shortly with my One Stop DT card.
