A new sketch....

is up at Cardabilities....sweet one! 
Tomorrow is the birthday of one of my very dear friends, so I came up with this.....made completely of scrap papers!!!! I love that I challenged myself to only use scraps! 
I made a paper roll flower and those butterflies are hand cut too! 
Since the card has a very vintage feel, I am also playing in a vintage card challenge at Colorful Creations.

Got a few minutes to play along with Retro Sketches this week......Fun and simple sketch....don't you agree? 
I needed a baby card for a sweet friend of mine. Her nursery colors are purple and green. This card also fit a  word challenge (new) at 2Broke Girls.
I used the baby embossing folder and my nesties  for the circle element, threw in some glitter for a bit of bling, and two yummy ribbons. 
Supplies: gcd papers, baby embossing folder-Cuttlebug, ink-CTMH, stamps-Glamour alphas by CTMH, glitter-Martha Stewart, and ribbon/buttons/floss-stash

Too Much????

You know that you have entirely too much ribbon when......
* you have outgrown your current storage by mounds of ribbon.....Check
* you have spools laying all over your studio....Check
* your little puppy comes through the house carrying a spool of ribbon in his mouth....Check
So with that being said, I have spent a good 6 hours today working in over 300 spools of ribbon and a huge mound of "stash".... Now I'm tired!
