so..... long time, no post... :)

Well, what can I say other than I am quite sick right now with a super nasty sore throat and cough.

Of course, that means extra stamping time - provided I can stay awake! Amazing how even the 'non-drowsy' medication can still make you drowsy!

Well, here is a little sample of something I made - more to follow tonight and tomorrow, once I take photos :)

Very quick and simple 3"x3"note card.

Strip of the celery DS paper along the top, with some white ribbon tied around. Stamped the flower from Shapes and Shadows in pale plum, then perfect plum for the line part of the flower. Cut it out, popped a silver brad through the center, and mounted on a pop-dot.

The sentiment is from Simply Said and stamped in perfect plum.

Now, you might be thinking "that ribbon does not look white to me - Karin must be in some kind of drug haze from the decongestants" - and you would be right!

......... about the ribbon not being white part - not the drug haze part!

What I did was take a piece of white grosgrain ribbon, and using the brush tip of my celery marker, I ran it along the edges of the ribbon - which resulted in the wonderful striped effect that matches the celery patterned paper perfectly! Got to love Stampin' Up for that!

Supplies used are all from Stampin'Up:

Shapes & Shadows
Simply Said
Whisper White
Celery Designer series patterned paper
Silver brad
Stampin Dimensional
White Grosgrain ribbon
