Friday challenge ...Ribbon tab


Well to be certain I got this right I decided to add not one or two but three ribbon tabs. Fact is I didn't like my fat ribbons all that much so went with my sweet buddy Mike's $1 bin ribbon. As little Ellie would say one dollah makes you hollah. Anyway I used Kraft color for my base of the card then some pinkish kinda mat and then some cool K & Company background paper. My little birdie is from Stampin Up and my phrase is a Hero Arts one. I cheated and used Walnut distress ink to stamp with cause it produces the right shade of brown. I know I'm a real rebel when it comes to the rules but that's what makes life fun.
Hello....it's the weekend again and as I always say, I hope it is a great one. I'm not paying $10 to go to the fish fry anymore...that's too high for my old lady pension, so I'll just get some Gorton's frozen and do it myself. Cheap old broad, yep I know but my redo on the bathroom is costing big time. Have a fun time and see you next week.

Yippee! Love the paper and the ribbon tabs and the walnut stain ink and the bird. You brought spring in with a big bang! Hope you're not enjoying those Gorton fish on your new throne. That would take getting your monies worth to a whole new level! Happy Weekend, Pat!

Pat, keep the pocketbook ready for Columbia Club, Billings, at 7.95/ 8.00 each fish fry. This is the final Friday for battered cod, baked cod, baked salmon, and hopefully a chase of shrimp. Usually shrimp makes one Friday night; we haven't seen it this Lent.
Keep Looking Up!

It takes a beautiful card like this to remind me I should really try ribbon like you did yours. The whole card is just so lovely!
