Monochromatic with Sparkles Challenges

Morning..........from a very wet, dull, dark Yorkshire Coast!
Did I say cold too, quite cold.........had to put the heating on first
thing! But no worries, we have just the thing to brighten
the day............a new challenge over at Sparkles Challenges!
The theme this time is have a month
to play and as usual, we love to see all & any crafts just so long
as it fits the theme! We're sponsored this time by the fab
Crafty Ribbons is a ribbon emporium, we are passionate about ribbons and want to share our fantastic ribbons with others. Our range of Christmas ribbons is second to none.
Remember when we only used ribbons to add a bow to our hair, or tie up a birthday parcel?  Ribbons are now a "must-have" for all types of craft.  Whether your project requires satin, sheer, silk, grosgrain, gingham or polka dot ribbon we have them all!  Lots and lots of different colours in a range of widths.
Need a little bit of ribbon inspiration - then have a look at our projects on our blog,or visit our Inspiration blog,or maybe join in with us at our Challenge blog.  Go on, have a look... It's worth it !

Don't forget, you can check out the gorgeous makes from the 
team, led by our lovely Shaz, over on the main blog!
I chose to use shades of black/grey and kept it quite flat
and plain......easy for posting & maybe just right for a man card?
Rightio, that's me for to catch up on your blogs!
thanks for calling!
