Quick card....or not so quick.

Hi there. I hope everything is going well for you all. A big welcome to my new follower Rebecca! Thank you for your company and I hope you enjoy visiting. :)
I was going to my craft group (I say craft but most of the people there are artists and only me and another lady do something different) and I hadn't got a card sorted out to make. I got my Lotv art pad, die cut an image and grabbed a few other bits to take with me. I made most of the card quite quickly and then decided to pleat some ribbon on it. Well the ribbon pleating looked ok for the first time trying it but it didn't suit the card one bit. I'd stuck it on with that red sticky tape so when I took it off the paper it ripped it! Not wanting to bin it I've stuck some punched paper over it. So here is my not very quick to make card, I hope you think I saved it ok.


And a different shot ....


I don't think it turned too bad but it's definitely better without the ribbon.

I'm away for a few days to 'take part in Sheffield activities with my second favourite son and his delightful accomplice'. My eldest son, Chris, and his girlfriend Lexi got me a voucher for a 2 night stay near Sheffield for my birthday in January, so I'm taking Stuart if he's good, lol. Oh and Chris called himself my second favourite son as his brother Kieran always signs my cards 'from your favourite son'. Chris said, with a smile, that he knew his place.

I'd like to enter the follow challenges:

The Ribbon Girl Challenge: Birthdays
The Papertake Weekly Challenge: Anything Goes
