Add a ribbon at Crafty Catz

 Good mornig, well where did that week go???  What with my brother moving house on Monday, flu jabs, daughter's birthday on Wednesday and Granddaughter's birthday today I don't know whether I'm coming or going! We are looking after the birthday girl today as it's half term for her, and her parents and sister will be at work/school. Picking her up at 10am for a leisurely brunch, at 13 years old and being a sporty girl she has an amazing appetite, though you'd never believe it to look at her- she's already 5 ft 8 and skinny as a rake and looks as if nobody feeds her! 

Enough of my waffle and on to the card which is my DT make for this week's challenge 

We are sponsored  by Hetty Clare Art
Bridget is our lovely host for this week and her chosen theme is Add some ribbon or twine- of course the theme is optional for anyone who wishes to play along.
The image I used was one I already owned, Flower Girl, so sweet! 
I've once again used my Copic markers to colour. I've used various remnants of DP to layer up my design and added a large red bow.
There's some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the team over on the challenge blog, so please do head on over to admire their lovely creations. Remember Crafty Catz is an anything goes challenge so it's always easy to join in ...and I hope you do! 
Thanks for visiting
See you soon!
