I Like Big Bows And I Cannot Lie

There's just over a year between my 2 daughters,
so, when they were growing up, I got used to making 2 copies of everything,
It's a habit I can't seem to break :-)
Here's their Christmas cards.


 I know they love this wide, stripy ribbon, so that was my starting point.
Then I kept things simple by adding the fussy cut penguins, coloured in traditional red and green,
with a sprinkling of glamour dust.


If you're a fan of ribbon, and let's face it, who isn't,
then check out Crafty Ribbons
They are having a Christmas Advent Event, starting on Dec 1st.
There will be lots of inspiration from their DT
and the chance to win some fabulous prizes along the way.

I find this really inspirational - two cards with small variations in design, yet they look different. These big bows are so decorative and beautifully tied!
