DCM - Wrapped Up In Ribbon

What a fabulous challenge this week over on the DCM blog. I didn't find out the dare until lunchtime as I was on the reception desk all morning at work. Hardly the best place to be full of cold & barking better than the average dog! But, I'm home now & am not going back until Wednesday. I'm hoping the cold will not prevent me playing this long weekend as I have brand new toys from Crafty Individuals. This paper & stamp are from them, this Angels stamp is one of the site's new additions. The ribbon has lived in my craft box for 4 years. It is gorgeous gold starred with wired sides. Perfect for bending into any shape you choose. I got it in a pack of 3 different ones from Lakeland Ltd. The silver vellum was also from Lakeland in a floral kit full of pressed flowers.

Now on to something completely different. You British ladies all know about the fantastic Red Arrows. They are a sight over most UK skies. Well apparently they are featuring on a petition which I & all my work colleagues have signed, to be sent to Downing Street. It seems they are told they can't do a display at the 2012 Olympics because they are "too" British & might offend other countries! Well, I say tough. They are the very essence of Britain & something we are proud of. Its like saying we can't fly our flag. When will this nonsense end. In the race to appeal to all, it is becoming racial against our own country & beliefs. If you agree they should fly, then please sign the petition. It takes literally seconds.
