Marjorie's color challenge # 39

I made this card for Marjorie's color challenge # 39. We were supposed to use at least 3 colors from the combo of Outdoor Denim, Tulip, Heavenly Blue, and Ocean. I used everything except the Tulip this time. The design is cased from a card on pg 35 of the CTMH Autumn/ Winter 2008 idea book. Thanks for the challenge Marjorie!

Only 35 days until Christmas! (and only 27 days until my birthday ;0) yay! )

I {heart} Ribbon!

Last week I put in an order for 5 yards each of 55 different colors of grosgrain ribbon. I know, I know.. WHAT?! But I will actually use it! In fact I've already used some of it on two separate projects, and one of them is a card challenge! I'll have to wait to share the pics as it's actually a card for someone who I know is a regular follower of my blog and I want her to see it first, ;0)

So what does 275 yards of yummy, ribbony, goodness look like? Ta-da!

I've decided to store the ribbon, separated by color, in these food storage boxes that I found at Walmart for $0.50 a piece. It makes it super easy to find the color that I'm looking for and putting everything away again is a snap!

Edited to add : I purchased the ribbon from ;0)

Embossed Christmas trees

I was playing around with my Cuttlebug today and came up with this cute little Christmas card. The trees turned out super cute!

I've also unofficially decided today that I can't make any projects with stamped images on them until I can score a few Copic markers, lol! I actually tried to make a card the other day where I colored it in with colored pencils and it was not very pretty. Oh well, I suppose now's a perfect time to start dropping hints for Nate about how much I "need" these markers...did you know it's only 42 days left until Christmas?! Woo Hoo!
