Hi Folks!

Our ribbon inspiration Saturday is all about the white!  I always find it amazing how much impact a white on white card can have.  The crispness, the stark canvas… the cleanliness.  I just love it!

Welcome to today’s Ribbon Inspiration challenge brought to you by Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. Make sure you stop by Sharon’s blog to find out how you can be eligible to win a sample pack of these gorgeous ribbons!  You should have arrived here from Deb Saaranen’s blog.

Here are my creations for today:

As I type this, I am listening to the local news and they’re calling for blizzard conditions for most of the state.  Fortunately, the area that we live in is only to get the high winds.   But I’m getting chilly just looking at the weather map!

  67. on 13 Nov 2011 at 16:18Traci S.


    I am in shock that the weather is calling for a blizzard! I fear that most of the country is in for a long, hard winter. And, no. I’m not a black and orange fuzzy caterpillar that predicts the winter! LOL

    I love this card…so serene. The embossing is beautiful…and I like how the strips are raised up. And, the look of ribbon through that lattice punch is gorgeous. I wouldn’t change a thing!

    Thank you for sharing both of your projects!

    He IS Able!
