Caardvarks' current challenge has May Arts as the sponsor; my favorite ribbon manufacturer. The prize is several rolls of their delicious ribbon if you use ribbon in a wonderful way. I don't know if my ribbon usage could be described as 'wonderful', but I'll enter anyway. Perhaps I will find time this weekend to be a little more creative with some ribbon...it has me thinking about using ribbon I never use...can I make a card using it in a wonderful way? Hopefully I can come up with something. Aren't challenge blogs terrific for helping you: #1 Use your stash and #2 Help you think outside your normal patterns?
For my card I used DCWV double-sided paper, layered on SU! chocolate chip. The base card is DCWV. I don't know who made this ribbon; it came in a kit. I used the SU! top note die, tag punches, stamp, markers, and dimensionals. The mini brad is by American Crafts.
This week has been unexpectedly busy, and as a result I have been a bad blogger. I did some fly by visits to all of my blog friends this morning, but left minimal comments. My sincere apologies! I was a little relieved to see that many of you have been busy this week too and did not post much either. Sending out a cyber hug to all of you still reading this post :)
