It's All about The Quirky Boys With Ric-Rac and Buttons!!

The sixth challenge of the year has already started over on the Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog! It's sponsored by
 I'm a bit late...(nooo, we'd never guess!) as I'm away house and dog sitting (and of course it hasn't stopped raining for days!!) and I didn't have my computer with me! Aaarrgh!! Anyway, it's now safely strapped to my hip, along with my printer and wacom tablet, so I hope to get last weeks freebie done very soon!
I did this first card...(top left)  but as you can see, or not, there's no ric-rac on it, only some very nice blue ribbon with little blue feet, because...I missed the bit that said, use ric rac!! So, exit this top card, take off the baby feet ribbon, nip home, raid all my ribbon jars in the hunt for some ric rac. I have a mustard yellow... velvet red... a nasty velvet browny-orange (yuk!) and at the very bottom of the last ribbon jar, I find some scraps of white ric rac ribbon, so, I coloured these with a pale blue Promarker and hey-presto, one card changed and no one's the wiser!
 I've also added three button brads and two (on the revamped card, the bottle's missing on the above card) baby buttons with the backs cut off and fixed to the card with silicon glue. I also used some baby 6x6 papers from a pack of 48 (some have glitter and some are double sided)  from a set by Forever Friends, called 'New Arrival'. Normally £6.95 down to £4.50, so I spent a bit of birthday money on them! They are really lovely)
Right, that's it, off you go over to Quirky to join in, some fabulous Quirky Design team and guest designer's creations! No stopping up til three or four in the morning for me this week, as poor John is already snoring right behind me!! Thanks for stopping by!! Sorry for no show for ages but well, been a bit busy! Here's walkies time, again.....
 I hope to add some....
