Ribbons and Bows Challenge

First off I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! If you are out and about tonight, I hope you party smart and safe. As for me, I usually spend the evening at home, eating junk food, watching movies and doing little else. It is the perfect night for me. Onto my card now. The challenge on the In a  Sweet Pea Dream site is to use Ribbons and Bows. I started with the Ching-Chou Kuik image The Silentness from Sweet Pea Stamps. I colored the image with Copics and painted the background with Twinkling H2O paints. The papers are from DCWV's Far East pack and the ribbon and flowers are from my craft room. 
 

The past couple of months I have been working on relocating my craft room. It is kind of set up in the new area--well the furniture is-- but I am still working on getting the shelves organized and stuff gone through. It is amazing all the things that I have found that I had forgotten that I even owned. Like the flowers on this project, no telling how long I have had them, but I fond a big bag of these flowers in assorted colors. As soon as I get it presentable, I will take some pictures. My friend's two daughters craft over here all the time and so they also have quite a stash of supplies too. I have been going through all their stuff too, getting rid of things that are no longer used, passing it along to other friends with smaller children.  Since they discovered my Copics, the Crayola markers have just sat on shelf untouched, the kids coloring pencils have been ignored for the Prismas, construction paper gets passed over for card stock and they now prefer Sculpty clay to play-doh. It was time to box these things up and pass them along to someone that can use them. Now they each have their own storage area for their things too. Back to work now!

Gina, you've created another beauty!!! So very pretty.
We'll be staying at home for New Years Eve also.....somehow that's just the best place to be! In fact, we'll probably be sleeping when the new years rolls in.....LOL
Hope you have a Happy New Year and look forward to all your creations in 2011.
