Phindy's Place Friday - Ribbon

Good morning, TGIF!  I am so excited it's Friday let me tell you!  It has been a long, drawn out week and yesterday was just the never ending day, as Thursday's usually are in our house!  BUT, I got something exciting yesterday.  I have just ordered a Black Cat Cougar die cut machine and it arrived yesterday, WOOHOO!  Did I open it right away, no!  Why?  Well, I was afraid if I opened it nothing else was going to be happening for me.  I am desperate to play with it and learn it so I plan on making some time this weekend to get started, whether I actually have the time or not!  

I really am desperate to get started using it.  I mean, who needs to work anyway?  As if!  Wouldn't if be great if we could feed our families from our love our craft alone.  If we could my family would never go hungry again, NEVER!  But then again, I do love to teach, I just wish I had more time to be at home to create and play.  Oh well, in a perfect world.........

Today we are starting a new challenge at Phindy's Place.  This week we want you to use ribbon on your project.  I have such a stash of ribbon but often have such a hard time fitting it into my projects.  Today I had the perfect color ribbon to go with my Phindy's image, Flower Top Fairy, Daffodil.  I love these flower fairies that Phindy has created.  

Materials I Used for this Project:
Copic Markers - Y17, Y15, Y13, Y11, Y08, Y04, Y00, Y0000
Spellbinder's Oval dies
Spellbinder's Scalloped Oval dies
Diamond Stickles
MS Rose leaf punch
Fiskars Small Butterfly punch

Here's a close up of my colored fairy.

I am also entering this card into the challenge at the Sweet Stop Challenge Blog.  Here is there sketch for this week.

I flipped the sketch to be vertical instead of horizontal, but I have otherwise followed what you see here.

Now it's your turn.  Stop by Phindy's Place and enter your creation into this weeks challenge.  You don't have to use a Phindy's image to enter but we sure love when you do.  Also, you get a second entry into the random drawing when you use one of Phindy's images.  Still thinking you need some inspiration?  Well, Phindy's other DT members have created some stellar projects for just that reason.  

Wishing you a fabulous Friday!
Glad you were able to stop by,
