I've been having more fun with my Sing to the Lord stamp set by Our Daily Bread Designs. What a gorgeous image to color! This time I used Prismacolors and Gamsol. I thought the "We are praying for you" sentiment was the perfect size for a tall card (3 1/4 x 6 1/2). The flowers are popped up for some dimension. Everything is layered onto some yummy Wild Asparagus dp from my stash.
See that yummy taupe satin ribbon? You are NOT going to believe this!! I had heard about an Offray ribbon outlet in nearby Hagerstown, Maryland a while back from the ladies who had the sad job of closing down my local Recollections. After many months, my 4yo dd and I finally made the trek this week (only an hour away). Let me just say that even with gas prices and my gas-guzzling SUV, the trip was SO worth it. Take a look at just some of the many steals and deals we found:
The photos don't do justice to the size of these rolls. Both the taupe and white spools measure 6 inches in diameter. I'm guessing there are at least 40 yards of 1" satin ribbon on them. I paid $5 or less for each of them. The ivory one is smaller and probably has 15 yards. I'm so glad it was marked down to 25 cents, because I never would have paid the full 50 cents! [big WINK, WINK!] They also had bins of cute ribbon-type embellishments and package toppers for 10 cents each! Oh, and the grab bags -- I've gotta show you one of those (35 cents, that's a quart-size Ziplok!! Pinch me, I'm gonna pass out!!):
Here's a thought ... leave me a comment on this post telling me your current favorite ribbon style. On Saturday morning, I'll draw a random name and get a ribbon assortment sent out to the winner! My current favorite, you might have guessed, is satin!!
Have a great day!
