The Ribbon Reel #44

Hello!

How are you all doing?  I am dropping in with my design team post for The Ribbon Reel.  I know Christmas is over, but Holiday Thank You's are a must to those special people in our lives who took the time to brighten our spirits. So I made a card today intended to use as one of my Thank You notes from my family. 

We have a darling inspiration photo to get those creative juices flowing.   I started with a rustic cream card base and added patterned paper that was inspired by the inspiration photo. Noting that the snowman on the pillow is actually on a tag, I used a Kraft Shipping Label as my focal image for my sentiment, stamped snowflakes and fussy-cut snow man. 


TRR #45
I embellished the tag with some Button Twine and Black Seam Binding Ribbon.  


A final embellishing touch is painting a chipboard snowflake adding chunky glitter complete with a button laced with Button Twine 

Be sure to head over to The Ribbon Reel and be inspired by all the other talented design team gals.  The challenge runs bi-weekly so you have two weeks to show off your beautiful work. The more times you participate the more chances you have to win some free goodies from The Ribbon Reel. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi Tammy!

I sure hope you feel better...and that you don't have bronchitis , it's horrible!! I get into these coughing fits that last forever and I can't stop. My ribs feel like I cracked them , but today except for the occasional coughing fit and plugged ears I'm alot better!! I made those Crate cards Before I got sick :-) Because I sure haven't felt like creating the last week lol!
