Expensive ribbon, but free chocolates?

OK, enough of green cats (if you read yesterday's post you'll understand this!)  We're back to normal with our colour schemes today!   Thank you so much to all of you who commented on my post yesterday.  I've watched a few tutorials on You Tube last night, and ordered a few more colours to play with. I hope they come soon and I can play with them at the weekend again.

This fortnight's challenge at Top Tip Tuesday is "Recycle it".

When I bought this plain red ribbon, it was quite expensive at £3.50 a metre, but it did come attached to a free box of Thorntons Chocolates (bought in the outlet store in town for half price, cos they're even yummier when they're half price!).

I've shared several tips this week on the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge Blog:

Tip #1 - use a clothes peg to hold bows firmly in place on your card until the glue dries.
Tip #2 - wait until the glue is dry before you lose patience and take the photos.
Tip #3 - follow your own advice!

Yup, the glue was still wet and you can see a bit of shine under the bow (it did dry clear so is fine now, but I was impatient as usual!)
