Crafty ribbons Best of British GDT

Whoop whoop happy Jubilee weekend my friends!!! How I would have loved to show you a piccie of my kiddies all dressed up yesterday but as soon as they got home they whipped off their clothes for their bathing suits and jumped into the paddling pool!
Do you have much planned to celebrate our Queen's jubilee then? We have the bunting and the flags at the ready and are going to have a big family picnic style party. No street parties around here (too much red tape with councils!) so we are having our own mini celebration. I have photos somewhere of me as a very small girl enjoying the silver jubilee street party, I even have a mug, spoon and pen from back then too!
In keeping with the jubilee and British theme it is time for another Best of British event at Crafty Ribbons and as they are sponsored today by Pink Gem Designs I am sooooo lucky to be GDTing there!
I absolutely loved making this!! Sorry that the card is slightly skew in the photo!
I used the fabulous Portobello rd papers (love these) with the most amazing "keep calm" ribbons from crafty ribbons aren't they just fab! I also used flowers from WOC and Mulberry crafts, my sentiment is Waltzingmouse and my post mark stamps are also portobello rd.
It's actually a bitter sweet card as my son's best friend moved yesterday, his dad is in the army so they move a fair bit, so this was a goodbye card for them. Caleb is pretty sad as losing your best friend at 5 yrs old can be hard but we will keep in touch.
This fab patriotic teddy digi from Pink Gem designs has been coloured with prisma pencils. I have machine stitched all the edges and double matted.
I am entering this into
OSAAT red, white and blue, Crafty pad colours of your flag, Simon says stamp anything goes, My mums craft shop red,white and blue, Charisma bling, MAWTT cool Britannia and Digi doodle shops best get the bunting out.
Do check out the rest of the amazing samples from the PGD DT including some of our fab new teamies!
Thanks for coming by again and enjoy your celebrations!
Big hugs

Sarah said...

Hi Rebekah, firstly so sorry that I've not been by for ages - don't know where time is running off to at the mo, it's certainly not running off into my house!!!

Gorrrrgeous cards - as always - in every post, and this one no exception but don't think you need me to tell you that!

Sounds like you are going to have a lovely day tomorrow for the Jubilee, it's pretty much passing us by here - apart from that I took Emily along to a Jubilee celebration in the village where she goes to school - she promptly fell off the roundabout and has hurt her fingers so home we come again!!!

I can remember the Silver Jubilee as well - there was a fancy dress comp and my mum dressed me up as a belly dancer! But she also put a cardi on me so that I didn't get cold!!!! Mother's eh - who'd have 'em ;-)

Poor Caleb loosing his best friend - it's heart wrenching at that age isn't it.

Hope you have a great long weekend.

Sarah

PS - You're welcome here any time - bring the family and stay in the holiday let (it's only 30 seconds from our front door) - send the kids off to the beach for the day and we can craft!!!
