Plane Fun Ribbon Border card!

I follow a LOT of blogs, I love getting ideas and inspiration from my fellow crafters. One of the blogs I follow is Willow & Paisley - check out this blog post about creating a ribbon border with your scraps of ribbon!

So I decided to give it a whirl - I used adhesive instead of staples on my ribbon and I challenged myself even more by making it a boy card. I have been volunteering for many years with organizations that send "happy mail" to kids (and adults, I usually focus on the kids though) who are suffering from cancer, brain diseases, etc. For the past couple of years, the organization I have been volunteering for is called Audrey's Umbrella. We get assigned to a person for a "season" and simply send them cards and small gifts during that time. My current assignment is a toddler boy with an older sister, so I always include her as well. This card will be for him:

And here is a close-up of the ribbon border:

This was a lot of fun and I will definitely use this technique again. I really did dig through my stash to see what scraps I had - I don't normally keep such small scraps, but I can tell you that I will be from now on! As if I don't hoard ENOUGH! ha ha ha Thanks, Charlene! :)

Well - it's F*R*I*D*A*Y!!!!! Not only that, but it's the Friday before a long weekend, and there is so much in blog-land going on this weekend! Blog hops at Whimsie Doodles today - another blog hop at TGF on Sunday night - and oh the challenges! We are going to a friends' house for a few drinks and snacks tonight and then the rest of my long weekend will be consumed by creating! Yay! We are also planning our April trip to California (northern) and I am getting so excited! Have a happy Friday everyone! See you tomorrow! Peace.
