Inspirational piece for The Hobby House

Good Morning bit late with this I'm afraid - pc at home didnt want to upload the piccie so doing it at work ooops!

Today is my day to show off an inspirational piece for The Hobby House.  I have made a couple of flowers made from white 2" ribbon available from The Hobby House and added them to stretchy headbands.  Added a button and a brad and here they are....

The Hobby House challenge - Ribbon

Today is my day to show off my challenge piece for the ribbon challenge over at The Hobby House.  With all the ribbon available in the shop took ages to decide on what to create but then I spied a polystyrene ball and that was that!!!  I used 3" wide cream ribbon to create the ruffle effect by sewing a long running stitch down the centre of the ribbon (8 metres) and pulled it to create the ruffle and pinned it in place with small pins into the polystyrene ball.  Added some little ruffle flowers, wrapped pink ribbon round the wooden stem and here it is.....

A little love banner

Over at My Artistic Adventures Heather is hosting her first challenge - Love or Valentine.  The only rule is that you use an element from her fabulous collage sheets available here.  I chose 'Romantic Focals Cupid Texts Boxes - absolutely gorgeous!!!

I decided to make a little banner using many of the images from the collage sheet - after cutting them out I edged them with Ranger Vintage Photo stickles.  Added some ribbon and some large Roses, both available from The Hobby House and here it is...

Looking forward to the next challenge
Thanks for looking
