Two Ribbons

Good morning! Fourth day in a row! Shocking I know, and do you know what? This is how it will be in the future. I have joined the lovely people over at Winter Wonderland Challenges from today and this is my first challenge in this lovel group. I so need some motivation to get all my Christmas cards done and now there is no escape from that. Feels good and I am so glad that they wanted to have me on their fabby team. Isn't it strange? I am on four different teams now, all are bi weekly and I manage to have all my postings in the same week. Wonder who's messing with me? LoL

The challenge of the week is to use two ribbons and luckly for me I had two images coloured as well. I coloured this image with my Letraset markers and Prisma/Spectrum noir pens. One of my lovely cats has been at it again. Made me really late with my card, but I got there in time, just. LoL A big muddy paw print right on top of my almost finished card. Thank you Tage!

So my card then. I have used a Tiddly Ink image that I bought a while back but I never managed to make a card from it. I couldn't decide which dp's to use. Today I manage and used a few different paper packs from Dove Craft. Those close to me know that for my winter creations I just love to use my snow men and that's why I bought that pad. I love the snow man paper! Then matching them up with a few snow flakes and some season greetings. Just perfect!


Except the ribbons that I have used. The white one with some woven dots on it reminded me of snowballs and the natural colored ribbon is from Pysseltagen in flax and it says Merry Christmas in Swedish. I have also used a few snowflake punches and a few new dies. First up is my new Joy! die in the shape of a half snowflake. I just love it! It's so pretty and I have covered most of it up. LoL The tree is from the new Magnolia DooHickey die club. It's a nice looking tree but I think I like the older ones better. Well, I might get used to the big holes in it and it starts to look better. Who knows. There is a whole bunch of other dies that needs to be tried out as well. Hope I get a little time for that in the coming days. But first I need to make two more birthday cards for 8 year old boys. Plenty of time, needs only to finish by tomorrow around 1700. So much fun to work under preasure! Well, not at all. At the moment I don't like it at all.
