I used the 'Life is a Picnic' sentiment stamped with versafine black ink (I masked off the little ant you will see below). The 1/4" adhesive scalloped border in robin's egg makes a great border along the top & bottom!
The Ribbonistas are sharing flowers created with May Arts Ribbon to inspire you to join the new challenge!
Here's what I've created:
This denim barrette is so cute on my sweet girl!
I've used 1.5" denim in blue; using a spellbinders die I've cut a flower 'backing' from the ribbon & then rolled the ribbon to create the flower, hot gluing in place. This ribbon has a finished edge, so I trimmed one side to allow a bit of fraying.
This month the challenge is to use navy & pink- I seem to use nothing but lately!
My friend Cindy was sweet enough to add Graceful Greetings to her cart for me this month :)
I love this set so much- and used nearly all of the images the first time I opened it! yay!!!
I knew I wanted stripes so I dug through my paper & found dots & stripes from Echo Park to be just what I had in mind. That is a fun pack & not sure why I haven't used it all up before now!!
I love that a single stamp can make such a pretty statement!
I did add some metallic gold string- couldn't resist! I think these may still be standard mail rate!
The ink is SU! & Delicata gold. Really pretty together in person!
I am looking forward to seeing all the pretty inspiration!
That concludes my hop entries- but had to post some of the pics from Hadley's birthday-
We had a nautical themed party (navy & pink!)- or I should say parties! We had a cousin sleepover followed by family party & the next weekend was friend sleepover! Six 10 yr old girls!
Hadley told me today the reason nobody sleeps at a sleepover is because that's what the name says- you don't sleep until it's over. That's pretty accurate!
I sure love that sweet girl.
Now here I have to say that I am not a party planner. We don't do a lot of hosting at all that isn't family. That said, Hadley & I worked together to come up with some fun details! I also got to know my silhouette pretty well :D
Those pretzel sticks are pretty fun to make- and you can see my labels below are on PTI tag dies!
One of the activities was for the girls to create the canvases pictured below. Using my silhouette to create the stencil it went pretty smooth- even when there were 6 artists!
The anchor banner & Hadley's canvases will all be in her room- she is patiently waiting for me to paint the hunter green wall that was that color when we moved in.
I'm not going to admit how long ago that was!
If you made it through the party pics too- wow! :D
That’s 3 chances to win! What do you have to do to win? Head over to the May Arts blog & check out all the projects- post a comment as you visit each blog. The Ribbon Lady will announce the winners on the May Arts blog on Monday, April 6th.
I'm mainly a SAHM to my amazing 10 yo daughter. I've been married to a fantastic man for 15 years (Wow!)- and he loves my craftiness (I mentioned he was fantastic, right?!).
I think I may be addicted to paper.
I KNOW I am addicted to ribbon.
