Simple Saturday

Elements of Style_Nov 2010

Had I not wrestled with ribbon for 20 minutes, this would have been a 5-minute card. I need to go find some double-faced satin ribbon, which is much easier to work with than the type that is only shiny on one side. Otherwise, there isn’t much to say about my Simple Saturday offering. The stamps are from Stampin’ Up. I love the flowers and look forward to doing some colored variations, so you just might be seeing more from this set in coming days. That’s if I can stay home long enough to stamp. LOL.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy and Black cardstock; Black ink pad; Stampin’Up Elements of Style stamp set; Red satin ribbon from Wal-Mart.

A Slice of Life: I spent the day with Mom and my sister, Karen, who has made a remarkable recovery from her surgery 10 days ago. There was another craft show in town this weekend – Holiday Fair, the juried show that I participated in for several consecutive years way back when. While there was a nice assortment of items, handmade jewelry appeared to be the most plentiful. After the craft show, we had lunch and then did some shopping downtown. It was a fun time.

I hope you had a good day, too. Until next time, take care, and thanks for stopping by!

Wow, I love the simplicity of the card with the vibrant red ribbon (and beautiful bow :)). It really draws attention to the (powerful) sentiment. Thanks for sharing about your life's fun to read!

Love your simple card, Kathi! That is a very pretty stamp and your bow sure doesn't look like it took that much time to get right!

I'm so happy to hear of you getting out and about with your mom and sister(s). Methinks having mom closer has helped you as much as it has her!!

You are doing the right things - spend time with your family, they are such blessings! I'll wait patiently for the next amazing card!

Beautiful card! The 20 minutes you took getting the bow just so was definitely worth it! Gorgeous! Wish I could tie bows like that!!!!!!!

What a beautiful CAS card! I love the contrast of black with white. That touch of red is perfect and so is your bow. I completely understand the time you spent fussing with your ribbon. I personaly believe that ALL satin ribbon should be double-sided!
