Good morning crafty peeps. Today there is a new challenge starting over at As You Like It and we are asking you to share your projects using your favourite ribbon or twine ( and don't forget to tell us WHY).

Our fabulous sponsor this time is

who are generously giving a £10 voucher to spend on......ribbon!!

Anyway on with my card.I had a dilemma, I really wanted to use seam binding (my default ribbon!!) but my project collapsed :0(
Spotty satin ribbon came to the rescue and here is what I made..... :0)


I am soooo chuffed with the result as it's only the second time I have made one. It could do with a bit of fine tuning but by the time Christmas is here I shall be an expert!! If you'd like to have a go, there is an instruction sheet that you can print off here.

I am joining in here

ABC Challenges #39 - Monochromatic (red & white)
Creative Creations Challenges #16 - Monochromatic (red & white)
Winter Wonderland - Red, white & kraft
Christmas Cards all year round -  Extravagant & fussy (extravagant use of ribbon?!)

Toodles for now and have a good day whatever you are doing.
 If you have a mo pop over and see what my team mates have been up to xx

Hi Sarah,
fabulous card. Love the ribbon weaving. It does make super wreaths.
Yes you are right seam binding doesn't weave very good.
I find the narrower the ribbon the better it seems to come on mine.
Have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
