Simon Says...Whiff of Joy!

Thought I would miss out on these this week! WHY do I leave it so late???

I must make an effort to miss one week and start making my challenge cards as soon as the challenge is out - rather than playing 'catch-up' all of the time...............thing is I love doing them and hate to miss one out!

Simon Says Challenge have a great sketch this week - I've swapped the flowers for snowflakes tho :)
Whiff of Joy's challenge was 'Die-Cut', I'm afraid I've opted for the most obvious and easiest - good old Nesties!

My image is the gorgeous 'Henry with Bauble' from WOJ, coloured with Promarkers. The paper is from last years DCWV Christmas MultiStack.
I've used some more of the fab glitter embossed ribbon I found in my local haberdashery at the weekend - I bought a metre of all of the 6 colours she had - as well as loads of others!!!

I really need to find a new ribbon storage solution! At the moment I have them all wound neatly and clipped with a clothes peg - but they take up 3 storage boxes and as I'm rummaging around I'm starting to mess them up - I'd love to have them more specifically stored - but should I keep them together according to colour or material or theme or width or sparkle or.................................


  1. Hi Carol, your card is beautiful hun, love the image and the soft colours. I'm exactly the same with challenges and ribbons come to think of it lol
    hugs Mandy xx

  2. This card is GORGEOUS!!!! I love the soft colours & Henry looks adorable!! I made a ribbon storage with peg board & pegs - I have them arranged by colour mostly, then a couple of pegs have "theme" type ribbons. I bought 2 little baskets with pegs for those in packages or small spools, then I have one of those ribbon bags for the loose stuff! Works awesome! I love my little ribbon wall - until one of the spools decides to unravel itself all over the floor! OR the cat decides he wants to play with some!! LOL Good luck with your storage dilemma!!!

    Thanks for participating in the Simon Says Challenge!
