SSIC104- Recipe Challenge & A Sneak Peek
Good morning! So many of my friends (bloggers and otherwise) have been affected by Hurricane Irene. Thankfully I can report the majority suffered little to no damage! A few shaky nerves but that is to be expected!
I must confess I have been glued to the television all weekend. I am a newshound of sort. And yes, I am one of those crazy people who has to watch news channels 24/7. On Friday night I managed to stay up until 1AM and then promptly got back up at 4AM to check the weather. We are not in an area directly affected but with such a huge block of the population living on the Eastern Seaboard, everyone knows someone there!
Apparently a lack of sleep can be inspirational as I managed to get quite a few projects done. And today's card is one of them. I really hate to buy flowers for every card. Honestly, I just never know what color I will need. I found a cool tutorial that shows how to make flowers out of satin ribbon. I used a larger satin ribbon (5/8") than the tutorial does. But it worked out nicely. The centers are simple brown brads.
Super easy and this card fit in with the recipe challenge at SSIC. Participants had to use 3 things from the items listed. I selected ribbon, a flourish and brads. And I will let you in on a little secret... You haven't seen this stamp set before! Our Daily Bread Designs will be releasing this fabulous set on Thursday. Be sure to check out the blog hop Thursday morning at 8AM EST to see what the girls have come up with.
Thanks as always for reading and don't forget to click on "tutorial" above to see this fab flower technique! Blessings...
