Emily Expresso

When this post goes onto my blog we will be driving thru France –  back to our house. We’ve had a fantastic time in the UK and really wish we could move back there                 permanently – maybe it will happen one day – it can’t be too soon for me!!

 Pat is our host for this week’s challenge at Fab’n Funky and she has chosen the theme


So you can use anything with checks on it – ribbon, paper etc – on your project

 We have a fantastic new sponsor for this challenge –

Sherrie Baldy

  You can see all the challenge details, as well as the fantastic inspiration from the Design Team, on the Fab’n Funky blog.

 The Design Team were given images from Sherrie Baldy to play with, and I chose Emily      Expresso for my card.


We were still in the UK when I made my card so I didn’t have a lot of embellies to add to it – but I did have some flowers and some deep lace, from a fantastic crafty place in Scotland, and a gingham ribbon which I bought in a fabric shop in Basingstoke.  I took some           Promarkers with me and bought a few Copics in the UK – so these – and the papers I      managed to access – determined my  colour combo.  The leaves were cut from a Joanna Sheen ivy die before we left France, as I needed some for my husband’s birthday card.

I apologise for this photograph – which I know isn’t straight – but after several attempts in my son’s house  I had to go with this.

I would like to enter my card into these challenges –
