Ribbon, ribbon, who hoards the RIBBON? I do. Do you see how I finally cut into my hoarded ribbon? Do you also see that I only use like an inch and 1/2? Yep, it does NOT go under the green cardstock. Who would WASTE a whole strip of ribbon that does not show. Yes, I know. I need therapy. This card fulfills 2 challenges. The SCS Color challenge and the Use it Tuesday challenge. Woohoo!!!

I had a simply mavelous stamping day yesterday. My youngest sister and I have been busy making trivets and placemats and other sewing projects, but since she has gone to visit her daughter I took a break from sewing and did some stamping. AT LAST!!!
I wanted to get some fast and easy cards together to give away when I see my family at the end of the month. I am a BIG fan of Biggan on Splitcoast Stampers so these 2 cards are inspired by her gallery. The 1st one I did was not a total success, (actually neither of the cards worked out like I wanted but oh well) but I will be doing more of these in different colors and with different sentiments. Hopefully my technique will improve.
