This gorgeous picture of ribbons is what U the winner of our challenge will win, plus 3 images from CJ and the Winners Badge to display on their blog.

Now I have made a joUrnal for my MIL who will be 86 in October and will be coming to visit Us for a while and she likes to write down every day what we have been Up to.

I have Used CJ's new image 'Sunflowers on the fence' isn't it beaUtifUl! Have used flowersoft for the sUnflower centres and been practising my shading. Also 'Garden Faery' coloured in Peaches with a hint of blue and added kindyglitz to her wings.
During this week of the challenge there is 25% off CJ's FLOWER images, this week only.
WITH OR WITHOUT Ribbons, DH says OTT, DT Say go OTT, what do you think?
