How fun you used some ribbon from pjs! I made a recycled canister the other day for cookies and I used a recycled ribbon from a blanket set. I love recycling! Your card is fabulous as usual. Some awesome colors that really pop and your coloring and sketch are absolutely wonderful and inspiring. You inspire me a lot Nic - I just did a card where I cased a sketch you used two cards ago. Hope you are having a wonderful week. Hugz!

I feel I should have done a card as it was my challenge, just I'm so tired and the house is upside down as we're doing some work (bad timing, I know)! But with you girls holding the fort, I need not worry! Hope you're doing ok, Shelly x
