Storms and Stamping

High winds and big rain today in southeast Minnesota. This is what I spent my afternoon doing instead of stamping. This is our backyard, already half-way cleaned up, after a big storm rushed through at 10:30 a.m.

It was mostly just big branches and a couple tree tops, but it sure made a big mess. Throughout our little town, there were trees in streets and the obligatory large branch through a parked car's window.

But, never fear. I have a card to share! This is one I love that I made back in April. The ribbon is retired (5/8" grosgrain), but you can get a similar effect with the 5/8" satin ribbon in white. It might look even more elegant!

If you're wondering about the shimmery background...it's Stampin' Up! Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz with a couple drops of Bashful Blue classic ink re-inker added! This is a way to get colored Smooch Spritz in 50 colors!

Well, I need to make a card for tomorrow...so off I go! I'll post that one later...don't want to spoil the surprise for the recipient.

Thanks for stopping,
