I am a SAHM to five children, I have began srapbooking when my oldest was a baby and then began making cards about 2 years ago. I have now begun bloggin and am enjoying it very much. I love all the new friends I have made and all the new challenges I have been able to become involved with.
One thing that we have seriously lacked close to where I live is a good craft store. I usually go to Michaels, or Wal-Mart, but if I want anything different than what they carry I have had to order it online, so Friday when JoAnn Fabrics opened their Super JoAnn I just had to go see what they had, and I just didn't know what to do with myself I was so happy in there. So many new things to look at the variety was AWESOME! This wonderful ribbon was one of those things I found that I just had to have.... It looks so yummy so this card for today was inspired using this wonderful ribbon.
I embossed the white cardstock using the mesh cuttlebug folder and cut out the SU top note and embossed using the oval scallop nestabilitie. I stamped the cherries from the Tart & Tangy stamp set and cut out the cherries and the leaf and pop dotted them, the cherries have been embossed using liquid embossing so they would be glossy. I also used a Martha Stewart punch for the border on the bottom of the card and added this fabulous ribbon, and I just couldn't resist stitching on the borders of the card.
I have been attacked by this horrible cold that is going around. With five kids it seems as if someone has been sick constantly for the last few weeks and I guess now it is my turn, I guess you can't take care of a housefull of sickies without finally coming down with it yourself. I sure can't wait for the flu/cold season to be over.
