OOOO! its getting close now - I have to admit I still love that countdown to Christmas.
We have our last challenge of the year over at Fab'n'Funky challenges this week.
Our lovely Sue has set us a really pretty easy challenge
The theme is
Use Ribbon and/or lace
I love to use ribbon on cards, its my favourite embellie by far. I often buy ribbon by the reel - especially at Christmas - but Oh how I hate coming to the end of a ribbon reel lol!!
The card I have for today is one of my quick and easy' s!! I made a whole batch of them using the precoloured toppers from LOTV this one is from the Christmas girls set. I saw on their website that they are phasing these out in favour of some different die cut shapes - such a shame as they are a great size to work with.
This is what I did.....
