Hi everyone welcome back to our first challenge of 2015
we have a nice and easy one for you this week to kick off the year
My first card for 2015 - I hope it gets a little quicker once I've had my arms plaster removed. I took me about 3 days to finish this card - die-cutting and using scissors especially is so slow - just another two weeks to go!!!
I've used one of the new Magnolia Tilda and ccoloured her with Copics. Adding flowers was pretty easy - tying the ribbon with only one arm took me about two hours and caused much frustration and a lot of very bad language!!! The green 'fern' between the flowers are by Magnolia - I can't name them as I have put them away and now can't find where I put them!!!

We are sponsored this week by
Lifelong crafters Mother and Daughter, Mary and Andrea were tired of having to buy full rolls of ribbon and lace when they only needed one metre. Because they love ribbons and all things pretty, they decided to open their own online shop in 2010 and make small quantities of beautiful products easily available to all crafters. Mary owns the shop and runs it on a day to day basis as well as keeping the website updated while Andrea looks after the social side, The Ribbon Girl Blog and the Design Team. They specialise in supplying small (or large) quantities of ribbon, twine, gorgeous vintage style lace and seam binding ribbon, tiny pom-pom and ric-rac trim, all sorts of buttons, fancy pins, a multitude of charms, pearl and crystal flourishes, wool felt squares, seasonal and unusual embellishments, mulberry flowers, sticky tape and accessories to card makers, crafters, scrapbookers and cake decorators. They stock only the best quality products and only offer for sale goods that they would personally buy and use themselves
