This is my card for week #4
I hope I didn't over do it with the embellishments. The ribbon just looked too plain to not add anything to it. This is probably the first card I've made without having anyone in mind to give it to. I think that was a bit challenging on it's own. But I think it turned out okay. The embellishments came from a kit that I had picked up from a dollar store, like last year!
I used glue dots to secure the ribbon.... and it made me wonder how other people secure ribbon on their cards and scrapbook pages... what do you do?

Post your card in Mr. Linky below....
- I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...
