A Sneaky Day Change For The Stamp Spot!

No - your week isn't flying past faster than you thought - it IS Tuesday today - LOL!!! I know my usual DT day for The Stamp Spot is Wednesday but sometimes we DT have things on that get in the way of posting to our regular schedules! This is one of those occasions and Sue and I have agreed to swap days this week - it's great working with these lovely gals and even greater when we can help each other out!

For the month of February Marcia has asked her DT to highlight some of the wonderful ribbons she stocks instore. You may have noticed I don't often use ribbon - not sure why really as a good piece of ribbon or a beautiful bow can be such a highlight on a card - and I certainly have enough hiding in my craftroom!

For this card I've tied this lovely brown lace into a bow and nestled it amongst some roses. All supplies are available at The Stamp Spot Store with the exception of the base CS and sentiment stamp and punches. The DP is from Bo Bunny - I LOVE their papers!!! I've used 3 of the 4 sides on here - who needs to know how to co-ordinate when the hard work is done for you!

I'm sure I'll get some wonderful inspiration from the rest of the DT on using ribbon this month - hope you have time to pop in and check their work out too.

And  don't forget - Marcia's sale is still on instore until February 19th!

Debbie this is gorgeous! I love your bow and never noticed till you just said that you don't use much ribbon, but your creations still always look amazing! The paper is gorgeous and suits in so well with the overall result. As always your colour is WOWZERS amazing! I absolutely LOVE what you have come out with.

This is gorgeous Debbie. I love how you have matted the paper with the brown side. It co-ordinates it all so well. The papers are lovely.

That image is a sweetie. Love your background papers too. Never noticed you didn't use much ribbon, there is always so much to look at and enjoy with your creations, that it just didn't matter. Love this one.

You could tell me today is Sunday and I'd probably believe you. Time is so out of control for me!

What a darling Anya Angel card, Debbie. Angels are my favorites.

Love and hugs across the big HUGE pond!
