Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge-Anything But A Card...AND a WEE BIT OF SWEET STUFF!!!!
Happy Wednesday and welcome to December!!!! Where in the world does time vanish to??? I can't believe that we are now in the throes of the holiday season!!! But I will wander along with the rest of you!! lol
Today is the first day of the new Challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings blog and I hope you will join in with us this time!! The theme this time is to make anything but a card, using ribbon and reminiscent of WINTER!!!
I started with a little clear container of Wilton Christmas Cookie Cutters and removed all of the labels and proceeded to decorate the canister with several kinds of ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon shop. For the body of the canister and the handle I used Christmas Vertical Stripe Satin and a darling red snowflake grosgrain which I think must have been one of the specialty ribbons from the marvelous monthly Ribbon Club! For the front panel I used that sweet Kitchen Tilda from Magnolia-licious , stamped her on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics. I also added several gingerbread boy and cookie cutter buttons to her panel...which you can perhaps see clearer on the picture below. On the top of the canister I used several layered Nesties with a Large Poinsettia from Wild Orchid Crafts.
On one side of the canister I added a red whisk and tied it on with Red/White Twisted Rope and on the other side I added a gingerbread boy ornament and tied it on with Bakers Twine Cherry.
Gosh it would be fun if you would come and join us in the challenge. You could win one of 2 gift certificates! For all of the details and inspiration from the rest of the Design Team, come on over to Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings.
And since I don't intend on baking Christmas Cookies, I would love to offer you a little touch of SWEET STUFF!!!! You can win this decorated canister, a Christmas Maggie, the rest of the set of Gingerbread ornaments, some Prima Poinsettias, some darling small red poinsettias from Wild Orchid Crafts, some red and green ribbons, and some red and green gems...How's that??? Just leave your comment before Saturday, December 4 at midnight.
Sorry I didn't take a pic of the SWEET STUFF this time BUTTTTTTTTT I am banished to bed rest until next week...Seems that my lungs were compromised by the chemo and radiation and I have picked up a bacterial infection which is causing asthmatic bronchitis and pneumonia.....heck that sounds like a horror story, doesn't it?? hahhaha So I can either follow doctor's orders (bahhhhhhh) or go to hospital...sooooo the funny part of this story is DO NOT USE COPICS IN BED when there is a chance of falling asleep!!!! I now have a lovely set of sheets with the most gorgeous B91-Pale Grayish Blue LARGEEEEEEE spot and one completely empty B91 Copic...hahahahahahah.
Anyway, hope you like my little creation and will come back and visit me again...Take care, breathe clean air, and enjoy the rest of your week. Sending you big Lysol-enriched hugs!!!!!
