Stamp With Us

I Just found a lovely blog called 'Stamp With Us' their challenge at the minute is a recipe
4 brads
1 ribbon
2 Designer papers
So, as my Mojo is in sleep mode due to my son Kalen being unwell (he seems to catch everything thats going about at the minute) I thought I'd make a simple card using that recipe. Of course first I had to check that the blade on my paper trimmer was still sharp, so what did I do? .....yep...ran my finger over it!!! Yep.....it was sharp alright! lol. Now, if my children had done that I would have said "That was silly...What did you do that for? Well you'll not do it again will you?" So no....I won't be doing it again and Yes, I should practice what I preach.
Ok, back to my card, its pretty simple so there is no need to explain what I did as you can see for yourself so here are the products I've used:
S.U. Stamp Sets: Tart and Tangy and Best Yet.
S.U. Stampin Up Designer Paper: Summer Picnic.
S.U. Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon.
S.U. Cardstock: Whisper White, Old Olive.
S.U. Punches: Scallop Oval, Large Oval, Scallop Edge.
S.U. Inks: Real Red, Barely Black.

Loved your card so much that I went straight to the Stamp With Us Blog, made my card and started to post it to my blog only to realize that I didn't post to your blog. Must be a "senior moment" Anyhoo, love your card. Those colors always look so fresh to me. It's gorgeous. BTW. I really do use a level to level my camera. Not that is apparently does any good. LOL
