Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday night. Quick card for you tonight. I saw this challenge across at cas-ualfridays. Create a clean and simple card featuring ribbon. Now, for those of you following my blog for a while, you will know that is one challenge I couldn't resist.

Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday. Before I show you my card tonight, I'd like to send a huge shout out to Kelly for her fabulous card. It was such a surprise and so appreciated. Thank you, Kelly. It did mean a great deal to me. I have a card for you tonight! I saw this great challenge across at cas-ualfridays. The challenge was to make a clean and simple card using a technique I so rarely use - paper piecing. For some reason, I saw this set in my collection and decided it would be ideal to use with this technique.... Read more →
