Tying the Knot Blog Hop & Giveaway


It's official!  Our very own  Ribbon Lady is tying the knot and we are so very happy for her and her guy, Joe.

The Ribbon Lady (aka Bethney) is a very special woman. Not only is she beautiful and talented, her heart is as big as the beach she loves so much.  It's an honor and a privilege to be able to share in her happiness.  

Each Ribbonista has created a card for Bethney and Joe to wish them the very best.

I decided to keep with the beach idea and go super simple and serene.  I created my card using Kraft cardstock and my computer because I wanted to personalize it just for them.   The outside is simple...


 The fun is on the inside...I custom printed the sentiment then added May Arts 1/8" Burlap Cord tied so that when the card is fully opened, the two cords pull into one single knot.  I didn't take it all the way here, just in case it pulled too tight!


Two hearts, one love.

CONGRATULATIONS BETHNEY AND JOE!    "A wedding is a day, a marriage is a lifetime."  Wishing you a marriage full of love, laughter and sweet surprises.

Some of our terrific Partners in Craft have graciously contributed awesome goodies so you can get in on the celebration as well.


How is that for a celebration?!!  

In addition, I'm giving away a Xyron 510 Creative Station (!) and Jessica Kephart is throwing in the Holiday Edition of Made in Paper Magazine!  

Here's the hop list.  We would love for you to leave a message for Bethney and Joe on the May Arts Facebook Page


Thanks for joining us!
