This Thursday challenge 8

Hi all
Wow I have had the most hectic two weeks, If i am honest Ive had the most hectic 3 months since Icame up with the idea to start This Thursday. I honestly haven't stopped except for a a couple of days when I really wasn't feeling well enough to do much. In some ways it seems like This thursday has been going much longer than that LOL.

These last two weeks I have been so busy that I have not designed any free papers this week or a project, but I have to accept that I am only human and as yet have not found a way to make a day longer than 24 hours. Although sometimes they feel longer. Ps its now 00.20 Thursday morning and here I am am still working.

So this weeks challenge is sponsored by Ribbon Oasis and have a wonderful selection of ribbons as the prize, Check out the brilliant collection of ribbons at This Thursday

Anyway here are my examples for this week. All the ribbon is available from Ribbon Oasis and is in the this weeks This Thursday prize selection from Ribbon Oasis

I bought these card blanks years ago. They are papermania but they are a bit bendy but I love the colour and knew I had to use one with the lilac ribbon. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder , but actually debossed the design (then spent ages flattening the bendy card) . Then attached the ribbon either side, I think the butterfly is K and co

I wanted to do somthing really lush with the ribbon, and decided to do ruffles, I was going to sew them on but I have some purple making memories staples and loved them on this . I like the fact that the ruffles face into the card. The other ribbon is really cute and also from the prize selection

The paper and the Photo chipboard are from DCWV All dressed up range , The sticker was from a kit I bought from Create and craft. I made a double bow on bow tying thingy . The double bow works really well with this two tone ribbon that is also in the prize .

Well thats it for me for the moment, but I am hoping to continue this post later today after Ive had a couple of hours sleep , and managed to have some playing time and do a couple of challenges haven't even had a chance to take a look at any other challenges this week so i have no idea what challenges will inspire me tommorow

Catch you later
