You Look Fabulous!

Can I just take a moment to tell you how much I love this set? Because I do. A lot. And the funny thing is, I didn't even want the dang thing. I had to buy out my quarter last time, and as I was making my selections, I picked a few of the retiring sets that I thought would yield the highest return on ebay, and this happened to be one of them. As soon as I opened the box though, I knew it had to live with me forever. LOL! I am also sooo glad I bought that Baroque Motifs set. Man, what a versatile set that is! That one is still available too, so if you don't own it already there's still time!

Ok, on to the card. I made this tonight for my bff's sister. He tells me she's expecting. Hopefully he's right, or she's going to be totally offended in a couple of days! Ha! I don't know her all that well, but she has always struck me as kind of a trendy girl, so hopefully she will like what I came up with for her.

I found the layout in an old Stamp It! magazine by Paper Crafts, and used that for inspiration. That's where I got the idea to knot the ribbon through an eyelet. Pretty clever, eh? I wish I could take credit for it, but I can't. Speaking of which, does anyone know how often they publish those? I have a subscription to Paper Crafts, but it's a new one. Do I get Stamp It! too with my subscription? Just curious.

And finally, we have the small matter of my card give away. In a very technical manner, I hollered to hubby in the basement:

Me: Hey, pick a number between 1 and 15
H: Why?
Me: Just do it quick.
H: Not until I know why.
Me: Argh. (lengthy explanation)
H: Oh. Ok. One.
Me: One?
H: Yep, the early bird gets the worm.

SOOOOOO, that means SUE, of Sue's Stampin' Stuff is our big winner for today. Sue, email your addy to me at sairabee at yahoo dot com, and I'll get the card out to you asap!
