Timeless Tuesday ...Ribbon


Well it's Timeless Tuesday at Flourishes and this week is the use of ribbon on your card. Well I started a seasons card collection last summer and followed it through back to Spring which starts in a few days. So I have posted my 3 old cards for summer, fall, and winter below and now I am ready for Spring. My card shows the first sign of spring....tulips. This is from an old Stampin Up set, just easily colored with my faithful water colored pencils. Add a few mats, and some dew drop type bling and some pretty purple ribbon from my pal Mike's place. Can you believe it really is coming and in just a few days...this Friday it will be the first day of spring. Yeah !!! Before you know it we will be swatting at mosquitos and sitting in our pools letting those hot rays burn our skin to a rich lovely brown tan. Holy moly I'm way ahead of myself but let's face it, we are all anxious for that wonderful summer sun.

Hi Pat! GASP! Your card is GORGEOUS! Oh, what you did with the ribbon is WOW! Beautiful addition to the flowers!!

I too am a Corvette girl! :) My dad has a 1968 British Racing Green convertible and a 2001 Torch Red Coupe. I LOVE riding in his cars and I even got to drive the new one, but for some reason, Dad put my Mom in the passenger seat! :) LOL!!!
