Ribbons & Bows and A Fizzy Moon

Happy Sunday all, hope your weekend has been a great one so far.  Two cards for you this afternoon, the first one for the LILI OF THE VALLEY CHALLENGE with the theme of Ribbons & Bows - it's a bit bright so you may want to stand back a bit .....


Don't say I didn't warn you - think I was trying to make up for the lack of sunshine today!  I've used the LOTV I Baked A Cake stamp, painted with distress inks, the sentiment is from the new LOTV Additions range, the papers are Echo Park Summer Days, and the stamped ribbon and bows are also LOTV Additions.

Now my second card is a total contrast in tone, but similar in that it has a bear!  I've had my eye on these Fizzy Moon stamps for quite some time (always was a tail-end-charlie) and when I finally got around to trying to buy some, you would not believe it - even my favourite on-line store said they were no longer stocking them!  Thankfully, my good mate Zippy said that her local craft shop had them in stock so she very kindly tootled off to get them for me (I did pay her for them!).  Hard to choose a favourite as they are all so sweet .......


Sorry for the lousy picture - the Doodlebug spots and stripes papers are actually chocolate brown, not black!  Love Fizzy with that enormous bunch of delicate flowers.

Hugs, Sxx
