A welcome return to Crafts & Me

Afternoon all!  Hopefully it is the afternoon as I scheduled the post, I should actually be hard at work about now and haven't scheduled a post in donkey's so hopefully it worked!

As you know I'm dipping my toe back into blogging and I make things here and there but what I lack really is motivation.  I thrive on challenge or reaching goals or I do tend to procrastinate and get distracted (I'm sure you all recognise that!) so I asked on one of the digi groups on facebook if anyone knew any monthly challenges with a DT call and I was answered by a few (thanks so much!) and Teresa over at Crafts & Me spotted and asked me to rejoin her team, needless to say I jumped at it as I spent quite some time with this team a while back and I do still admin on the Crafts & Me Facebook Group - Whaaaaat a facebook group? - YES, come show off your fab Crafts & Me creations!
So its a welcome return to the Crafts & Me Design Team :)

The challenge over at Crafts & Me Challenge & Inspiration this month is to Use a Ribbon.
I used a digi by Hannah Lynn called Mimi (Hint: which is also perfect for valentines!)
She's coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers and I used vintage photo distress ink round the papers (First edition: Love Letters)
I added some paper roses, pink and brown ones dyed with moonshadow ink and some 1" brown chiffon ribbon overlayed with rose coloured 1/4".  The crystal hearts I bought at a show a while back (saved for best as you do!) and the frames I have no idea where I got them from but may well be the craft shop in Llandudno.  The butterflies are punched from holographic silver then coloured in with a brown promarker, they didn't photograph very well and look streaky but you cant see that in the flesh.
Finally the sentiment is made from individual peel off letters - CARIAD which means SWEETHEART in Welsh.

Do hope you can join us this month, its easy peesy add a ribbon x

I'd like to enter into...
