Isn't the power of the internet a wonderful thing! I'm on holiday in Normandy at the moment but thought I'd pop in to share a card I made recently.

Although the weather isn't brilliant we are nice and cosy in our camper van on a campsite near Bayeux. 

My card was made using gorgeous satin pleated ribbon and a selection of buttons from The Ribbon Girl.   As well as the colour challenge the ribbon girls now have a new monthly card challenge.  The first is to use ribbon or lace.  You can see the fabulous creations from the design team and check out all the details here.  

To end my post I'd like to share some photos I've taken so far this week.
