The Pink Elephant #54

Happy Monday!
It's time again for a super fun challenge at The Pink Elephant!

This week, the challenge is to use RIBBON somewhere on your creation. 
Our sponsor this week is CC Designs 

I just adore their stamps! I can't seem to stop buying them...they call to me when I see their sweet little faces.
This little Sweet Kiki La Rue is no exception!

One of my good friends at work fell last week during a bad snow storm and broke her foot. She is coming back to work tomorrow, but only because she has promised to ask for help and not leave her office unless absolutely necessary. I wanted to put a few little things on her desk when I go in Tuesday morning. I got her some lotion and then made these two things for her:
 
The one with Kiki is a box I made that holds two Reese cups. And the other is a water bottle tag holding a White Tea To Go. I actually completely forgot about the actual challenge as I was making these. I knew that I needed to use the CC Designs stamp, but forgot about ribbon. Luckily, I did use ribbon around the box and made the little loops out of ribbon. I sure hope it is enough to make it 'count'!!! Normally, I go overboard with ribbon and this time...used very little. UGH
I colored my image with Copics, used Just Rite Stampers for the circle sentiments and the paper is from Target's dollar spot (I got a TON of it for a buck! lol). The flowers were made by punching 3 daisies and layering them together with a dot of glue in the center. Then, when dry, I added a pearl and fanned up the petals to make them puffy. I apologize for the photo....my camera sucks!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a creatively wonderful week!

P.S.....I didn't forget about my blog candy. Still gathering stuff and will annouce the winner on Wednesday.

I did exactly the same as you Robin - completely forgot about the ribbon, but luckily I already had a strip on and was able to add a bow.
Love your creations this week.
Well I always do.
