All that glitters is not Gold !

Well this card caused a storm of glitter all over me and my crafting table. You ask why??? Well it seems like my ribbon spool bought at my buddy Mike's place was on sale for a reason, and that reason being....it sheds glitter. Well what can you expect when you buy ribbon on sale I asked myself trying to see through my glitter covered eyelashes. Anywho, I finally was disgusted and said to myself and to all of you....ENOUGH . So here is my card for the Friday challenge at
Sharon Johnson's notimetostamp blog. The boughs are stamped with a stamp from Santa Rosa and is a very old stamp ( though not as old as some people I know) and the phrase is from DeNami. And you know about the glittery ribbon. So that's it my friends and foes. Have a great weekend and keep those fingers dirty but stay away from cheap ribbon. Pay a little extra because you're worth it.

Hi Pat
Happy Blogoversary one whole year. Well keep it up because I enjoy checking it out every day.

Thanks for the information on the tree stamps. The next time I get to my craft store I'll check and see if they have them.
Have a great day!
