Speaking of that ribbon; when I first started scrapping and making cards, I bought this skinny ribbon in every single color I could find. Many colors, I have more than one spool of for some reason. I think I bought it in every color in Jo-Ann's, every color at Hobby Lobby, every color at Michael's...well, you get the drift! Many of you know that I periodically issue challenges to myself to use up some of my supplies, so my latest challenge is to find as many ways as I can to use this super skinny ribbon. I would love it if you would play along to, if you have ideas, please leave me a comment with a link to your blog or gallery. I like the way it looks in this project, and I have used it in a couple of other ways but I would love to see anything you make with it.

What a weekend! At the beginning I was envisioning hours spent in my craft room but that did not happen. I did have a pretty good one though, it just wasn't quite what I planned. I got to spend lots of time with Kip. Part of that was at the grocery store, but hey, we were still together. I have been making some Halloween cards over the past few days. I don't send that many out, mainly to nieces and nephews, but I also use these as themed notecards that I will send out during the next month or so. The checkered border stamp is from Stampin Up and I just used Palette black ink to stamp that directly onto my orange card stock. The Little Franky is from Studio G and was stamped with Palette ink and then colored with Copics and a silver gel pen. The ribbon is from Jo-Ann's. I simply tied knots throughout the length and then made them into stripes going down my black card stock.
