Ribbon score and a Mothers day card--------

NO stickles to dry so typing and placing photos at the same time.

Shocker shocker!

I have been so busy my head is about to fall off. Its 8:20 pm here and I have yet to eat my meal! I made lemon chicken with baked potatoes and I am letting it "Cool" off after being baked a while. Good news is with the husband coming home from his trip tomorrow he can eat the left overs for lunch!

I had a great few days on the buyers market. I know you are thinking "OMG Carly, you said you were not going to spend any money and save for your husbands birthday" Yea...well..I won 20$ gambling so get off my back. I spent 6 dollars. I got a HUGE score on lace and such on ebay. I think its a score because its all the colors I love and there was enough of it for me to learn how to use it and not be out of lace. I do not know the value of it in crafters world, but I think it was good for 6$ It arrived today and I was impressed, its clean smells normal and was good quality. Someone took care of their ribbon.....except for the whole ball it up thing. :D For an idea of length the light pink on the lower right is longer than I am tall. So no less than 5 feet long.  Lots o ribbon!

But lets get to why you are linked to my project. The card right?  I am so loving this end product. I am sorry to use the same Tilda but I only have so many and my mom has never gotten this Tilda so we are good. I went with something that I liked that made me sooopa happy. I feel so happy and buzzy, light headed and giggly...I love with the card?  Anyway I wanted to go with something that showed my style more because so many things recently have been made completely with my mom in mind. She can only get so many purple cards before she starts asking if I own any other colors.

**Pink and white** Yeah, I clapped my hands! I cut Tildas hair to look like mine too. Yes I do have little wings on the side of my head, thank you for asking!

I moved the wing aside to show that the wording is not covered up, that its a design.carlysketch 54
 I already wrote my love to my mom on the inside so I did not take a photo of that. Just the easel. I tend to get the card done and write my feelings and thoughts in it, I think because I am generally so happy it easy to express things!

  8. Uhhhhh... where's your followers' button?!?!?! ;)

    1. uhhh, this is an awkward moment I bet. I actually have no idea, I thought that because it was my blog I was not able to see it. I will look into it, never expected anyone to want to follow me.

      Its great to hear of your craft room on wheels, even while following a dream you got to bring things to keep that dream preserved! Thanks, I feel after more research on ribbon prices this was indeed a good find. A habit forming find, but hey its a lot of ribbon till I need more!

    2. Wow, I think I may have solved that issue in 10 minutes or less (Is there an award for that?) If I did solve it the link/follow thing will be in the upper left hand corner
