Top Tip Tuesday

 Apologies this post is running late. My Dad was admitted to hospital and  everything is up in the air at the moment. I am fitting this in between work a doctors appointment for me for bloods and hospital visiting. 

This week on TTT we have a lovely tutorial and sponsors and lots of other news.
Our sponsor are:-

Our Challenge is Focus on the Ribbon

I have made two cards this week, the first is with our sponsor image a beautiful rose corner from Delicious Doodles. 

I also used Nesties, Cuttlebug dots, Promarkers, Wild Rose Studio paper.

My next card is made from recycled ribbon. These bits and bobs are from the hanging ribbon on clothes. They always annoy me so I cut them off and keep for crafty projects. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

For this card I used Cuttlebug swirls, and a tag from Lili of the Valley.
I hope you can join us this week.
