BAD BAD Blogger!

My sister sent me a "good grief" IM this morning, kindly pointing out I had not updated my blog since October 1!  (which is totally NOT true - I changed to a Christmas background right after Thanksgiving, heehee!!)

I am such a lazy blogger.  Just too much other stuff going on and I am forgetful.  I'm the one that makes the list of what I need to take to the store and then forgets the list.  Every. Single. Time.  {sigh}

True Confessions over.

A little while ago, Pat got a Sew Easy Ribbon tool...but after playing with it a bit, decided she didn't really like it and didn't think she'd use it - so she sent it to me!!  And I LOVE it.  In fact, I've ordered the leaf, the zigzag and the shoelace tools because I liked the weave one she sent me so much.  So, here is the very first card I made using my hand-me-down toy.  The ribbon is the Sew Ribbon, and the paper is from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found collection - one of my absolute favorite papers ever I think!  I think the sentiment is from a Unity stamp.



Then on the Paper Wishes message board, we had a color challenge and the colors were lime green and chocolate.  So this is the card that I did for the color challenge  -- using Shabby Shutters and Forest Moss Distress Inks on the Color Me Swirls paper from Paper Wishes -- and using the Sew Ribbon tool (do you get obsessed with new toys and use them on everything when you first get them too?)



Thanks for looking!

Very nice cards Sam! I've seen those tools get used quite often. I'm very tempted to get them for myself.

Beautiful cards! I'm on a no new tools craft diet right now. I don't think I would use it much. I love that paper too. I just bought another 6x6 pack!!!
