Hi I'm Vicky & I'm 44 & have been married to my hubster since I was 16 years old, met him when I was 15. We have 3 grown up children, 2 sons, the eldest has moved out & has a family of his own. Which means I have another daughter & now 2 gorgeous grandchildren. My Youngest son is still at home & I have a daughter who is 24 but severly disabled so only has the mental age of a 3 month old baby.
I started crafting after losing my dad. I started a hobby to occupy my mind......it also stopped me from decorating so much which I love to do......love designing things around my home & recycling things to make them beautiful. So maybe I have always had a crafty mind.....lol.
I am now totally addicted in every way & whilst my life is quite hectic this is my escape..... My absolute favourite stamps are Magnolia, I love everything Magnolia. 

I am so honoured & so thankful to be asked to be apart of this amazing team, I love this challenge & I cant stop smiling now I'm designing amongst these super talented ladies


So on with our challenge and its an easy peasy one of

And now on with this months challenge, our theme is another easy peasy one:

SNOW/GLITTER
(with Christmas fast approaching, we all love to add some snow or glitter to our cards)  

We are being sponsored by the lovely Ribbon Girl again this month, they stock the most beautiful lace, ribbons, flowers, pearls and so much more.

Lifelong crafters Mother and Daughter, Mary and Andrea were tired of having to buy full rolls of ribbon and lace when they only needed one metre.  Because they love ribbons and all things pretty, they decided to open their own online shop in 2010 and make small quantities of beautiful products easily available to all crafters. Mary owns the shop and runs it on a day to day basis as well as keeping the website updated while Andrea looks after the social side,  The Ribbon Girl Blog and the Design Team. They specialise in supplying small (or large) quantities of ribbon, twine, gorgeous vintage style lace and seam binding ribbon, tiny pom-pom and ric-rac trim, all sorts of buttons, fancy pins, a multitude of charms, pearl and crystal flourishes, wool felt squares, seasonal and unusual embellishments, mulberry flowers, sticky tape and accessories to card makers, crafters, scrapbookers and cake decorators. They stock only the best quality products and only offer for sale goods that they would personally buy and use themselves.

Here is the Lovely Hanglar girls beautiful cards to give you some inspiration:
