This past weekend (11/4/2007) I was visiting with my sister, Cathy in Sumrall, Mississippi and went on a shopping trip into town at the Dollar General and found some Christmas ribbon in the Christmas section of the store. Each spool was $1.00 and had 9 ft of ribbon. We decided to each buy 4 spools and we went back to her house we divided the ribbon between the both of us. Both of us walked away with 4.5 feet of 8 different ribbons. I have already used some of these ribbons on a few of my cards.
A Challenge over at Sweet & Sassy http://sweetmissdaisy.typepad.com/sassy_sweet_notes/sweet_notes/ . This is my first time ever participating in a challenge. She posted a picture of a beautiful salad plate that had a sunflower design on it. The challenge was to use the plate as inspiration. A few weeks ago I bought a Miss Elizabeth sticker sheet with sunflowers at Dollar Tree. So of course this challenge really sparked my creative juices. This is just the first card that I designed with the sunflower stickers, but I think there will be more in the near future.
Challenge over at Daring Cardmakers http://www.daringcardmakers.blogspot.com/ to use snowflakes and snowman - This challenge sounded like it would be fun to do. Several years ago my sister, Wanda gave me a tablet of winter papers, stickers, and die cuts. Well I was able to use this as my starting point and created 4 really cute winter cards. The first card I did was a Z fold. Then the other 3 I decided to do will be part of my Christmas Cards that I will be mailing out this year.
