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 punched out the thanks on the green sheet and used the negative by putting a yellow scrap underneath to make it pop, I will use the punched out green thanks on another card, another day.

Sewing Projects

These are some of the sewing projects my youngest sister and I have been working on.  We are making trivets from used bottle caps.  I love the grapes, they are my favorites

Stamping FUN!

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.
