Celebrate the Occasion Challenge #32: Any Occasion - Must Use Ribbon

Hello Everyone,

Its another Tuesday so there is a new challenge over at Celebrate the Occasion. This week you are challenged to use ribbon on your project and it can be Any Occasion. Remember you may have a chance  to be entered into a draw for a $25 Papertrey Ink gift certificate.

Since the challenge is to use ribbon, I wanted my ribbon to be the star of the card. The card is 5 x 7 inches. I started with a 48 inches of a 1.5 inch wide ribbon. Then I baste stitched the middle of the ribbon down the entire length of the ribbon, pulled the tread and gathered it to get the effect seen on the card. I used Fabric-tac glue to attach the ribbon to the card.

What was used:
Fabri-tac glue
DCWV Cotton Bloom Stack
Recollections Cardstock
Sunflower Yellow Rhinestones
Inkadinkado Thank You Words Stamp Set
1.5 inch satin ribbon
Fibers from my stash
Green Chalk Ink

Please visit CTO, see  all the inspiration from the design team and join us with this week's challenge. I can't wait to see what you create.

Happy Scrapping!

Hot Air Balloon Card

Hello everyone,

There has been a new challenge up at Celebrate the Occasion since Tuesday and the theme this week is Birthday but you 'must use a balloon' on your project. I made this simply card with a cute $1 stamp I found at JoAnns.

I love the effect of the three balloons. The middle balloon I cut out and up with popdots to have a little 3-D effect on the card. Here is a little close up of the balloons. It is a very simply card but I love the effect. My greeting is not as straight as I would have loved but it works.

What was used:
Recollection Cardstock
Martha Stewart Cool Colors School Days Paper Pack
Archival Inks in Banana, Aqua and Carnation
$1 Stamp from JoAnns
Ribbon from my local craft store

Now I have some big news to share:
I have been neglecting my blog friends and followers for the past couple of weeks because I am very busy trying to sort life out to move from MA to CA! Its crazy, scary, exciting and sad all together. I apologize for not commenting on your blogs and I have not posted on my blog as much as I usually do because we are trying to get everything sorted her.

I will still keep my post on the DT at CTO because I gave my word and luckily I can schedule my posts for when they are due so I am busy trying to make my projects and write my posts. I am not sure when I will have my scrap room set up when I get there, especially since I have two little ones I will really have to sort them out first, get them into schools, etc. I don't know what I am gonna do without my scrappy stuff for a month or two.

I hope you will bear with me for the time and I won't forget about you all and I hope you will still keep coming back to visit with me when my posts appear. The one constant in this move is that you all will be coming with me.

Thanks for all the love and support!
Thanks especially to My CTO DT members for understanding!

Happy Scrapping!
