A Joint Effort!

When the postie came the other day he had some new Martha Stewart punches for me. I just love so many of her punches, which is never good for the credit card!! I saw this deep edge one on quite a few cards and knew I had to have it, isn't it just gorgeous!! Anyway couldn't wait to use it so here it is. 

The other day I was giging at some beautiful blogs and I came across this fantastic bow making tutorial on Cheryl Walker's Blog. Cheryl is a TFG Farmer and all her work is just stunning so is definitely worth a look. Thanks a lot Cheryl for the tutorial. There is no excuse for me not to have gorgeous looking bows from now on!! So of course when I saw the Monday Mania challenge was to include ribbon, I knew this was my chance to try out Cheryl's bow's and I am pretty happy with the way it turned out.

This Easel Card has been made to fit a number of challenges this week and they are:
CA&F Monday Mania - Easel Card with ribbon on it.
