PanPastels, Lavinia Stamp, some Glossy Accents and a Ribbon!

Sentiment Stamp from Clarity Stamps

Morning all,

 I spent all day yesterday, after I had completed my normal domestic engineering, sorting out my craft room.
There's no space in my room for me 'cos it's so full of stuff ( it's a tiny room!) so  I craft downstairs.

It's a pain having to keep running up and down stairs to get what I need, but it keeps me fit!

Anyway, a bit more to do today so I will quickly post this tag that I've made for this weeks PanPastel challenge called Add a Ribbon. 
COME on join  in ... You can win some PanPastels to try and your entry does not have to be made using PanPastels ... any medium you like..... plus a ribbon!

These PanPastels   sure have me hooked!
Lovely Lavinia Stamps .... Tidy!
This tag took no time at all!
Various PanPastel colours swiped over some textured card to make the background. Then spray lightly with a cheap hairspray to seal the colour.

Lavinia Stamps Poppies and a Sentiment Stamp from Clarity  both stamped using Versafine Black Ink then Glossy Accents applied to the poppy heads, add a ribbon....  Job done!
