Happy Sunday everyone, and a warm welcome to my blog on this special Bank Holiday weekend. After all the beautiful weather we have been lucky enough to enjoy over the past couple of weeks, it looks as if we are to be blessed with rain, and a fair drop too, but we won't let that dampen our spirits this jubilee weekend! Over at THE CRAFTY PAD this week our challenge #173 is
We want to see how creative you can get using ribbons on your projects...how easy-peasy is that! I have made a ribbon rosette Fathers Day card for my littlies to give to their dad on Fathers Day, and the best bit is that I used a fab tutorial by our very own Debbie Moore which you can find on the challenge blog HERE.
Here's my card:I have used the Father's Day Rosette image, available from The Crafty Pad Designs. I made the sentiments on the computer using a font callled 'A PAPA,' and the DPs are a digital freebie from for-ever-ago! I made the rosette into a badge by attaching a safety pin to the back, and secured it using low-tack glue so it can be removed and re-attached when required.
I added some card candi and a couple of star-shaped brads to finish.

The inside of the card was created using up the leftover bits n bobs of card and DP.
