Happy Birthday Karen!

We're having a birthday party and you're invited!  Today is the uber talented, Karen Baker's birthday and a few of us have decided to give her an online card party to celebrate.  .

We're using the sketch from Artful Delight ASC#37 and lots of burlap because it's one of Karen's favorite ribbons.

I used Real Wood Paper as one of my layers...love that stuff.  The background is May Arts Wired Burlap Ribbon.  I removed the wires and attached the ribbon with Scor-Tape for a secure hold.

Happy Birthday, Karen!!



Every party needs favors so the Ribbon Lady is giving away 2 rolls of ribbon to one lucky blog hopper AND two more rolls if you go to Karen's blog to wish her a Happy Birthday!

Here's the list for the hop:


Thanks for joining us!  Don't forget to comment on each and wish Karen a Happy Birthday!

May Arts Ribbon - 2.5" Wired Burlap, SM10 Burlap String; Cardstock - Papertrey Ink; Paper - Real Wood Paper;Stamps - Papertrey Ink; Lil'Inker Designs; Ink - Hero ArtsScor-Tape, foam tape, brads

May Arts Halloween Blog Hop


Welcome to the May Arts Halloween Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the talented Candy Rosenberg's blog.   I've had a ball creating this wreath.  Hope you enjoy it.


I started with a plain grapevine wreath that I picked up for $3 at my local craft store.  I added a few fun embellishments like this dapper sparkly crow.  Then the fun began with all that wonderful May Arts Ribbon!


I ended up turning him around so his pretty sparkly chest was more prominent.  You can click on any photo for a closer look at these amazing ribbons!


I had some wired picks in my stash of "stuff" so I simply wired 10" pieces of ribbon like this:


and poked them securely into the wreath, then added some sparkly orange pumpkins.

Here's the Hop List for the week.  Prepare to be beautifully spooked!  Next up today is the uber cool Christina Colon.
