Happy New Year and a new 2011 card challenge!

Happy New Year to all my lovely readers I hope 2011 finds you happy and healthy! I have decided to make 2 new years resolutions:

1. Create more.
2. Update my blog more often.

and I have found a way to do both.

Introducing Paper and Ribbons 52 Cards Challenge.
I am in awe of those crafters that can make a card a day, unfortunately I can't keep up and one a month is too few, so every week I will set myself a challenge to create a card a week based on three simple prompts. It could vary from:

Cosmo Cricket/Ribbon/Male Card
Stamping/Die Cuts/Buttons

See? pretty simple! and to upload the picture to my blog. This week's challenge started on Monday uses the following prompt:


I'd love it if any of you wanted to join in and posted links to your cards (tags or other projects using the challenge theme) in the comments, if enough people join I'll add Mr Linky to make it easier.

I am also nearing my 100th post so hope to offer up some blog candy or a prize at random to someone who has entered the challenge!

Here is my card for this week

I hope to see you next week :)


  1. Lovely card. The embossing looks great :)
