Men are such animals!!! Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida
I was perusing the blogs (blurfing - blog surfing - don't you love that? tee hee) and found a challenge that was right up my alley - use a bow on your card. Well, hellOOOOO!!! A bow implies ribbon.....and goodness knows I have enough ribbon to tie up central Florida!
Now what does the title of my post have to do with a bow? No.....nothing about a man all tied up.....get your mind out of the gutter! "Men are such animals....Yes dear, but some make good pets!" It's the sentiment on this cute little panel that I used on the card. Funny, huh? It's from one of those pages of vintage images from Crafty Secrets. I love them!!
I ended up with this card in such a roundabout way. It started with the bow concept. I knew that I wanted to make a fluffy bow with May Arts' silk ribbon, but I only had green (no - not what I wanted) and this buttercup yellow. Then I thought vintage...oh, those Crafty Secrets panels! So I pulled them out and found this one - the gal's apron matched the ribbon, and I thought the sentiment was a hoot! And pink is vintage, right? So then I thought pink - let's look at the new CTMH Topstitch paper packet. The vanilla cream flowers go nicely with the ribbon! I used grey wool cardstock and ink for matting and stamping. Seriously, it took less than 15 minutes, which is miraculous for me. I stuck a Pretty Pin in the bow and called it done! Can't wait to mail it to a friend!
Thanks again, y'all, for visiting my blog. Do you like my new header and sidebars??? My friend Amelia paid her friend Tamera to do the logo (header). Then I paid Tamera to do the sidebar headers, signature and a watermark. So now I'll be able to add the watermark when I get Photoshop Elements.
Phew! So if you're still here, leave me a comment about the new look. Anything I should change?
