Sad, But True ...

... I NEED more RIBBON (I'm sadly WITHOUT very much NEW stuff ... not that I have a whole box full of OTHER ribbon or anything!!) But, I digress ...

Don'tcha just LOVE these little birdies??? I think this is a MUI-FUN idea for a wedding card, don't you? Thanks to my good friend Terri Honz, for the inspiration for this ... here is a link to her adorable birdie card:

I love this card. I love using ribbon in my work. There's this heart ribbon I ran into at a craft store Saturday. I't soooo pretty, I just love it. I love butterflies just as much as you do but I LOVE hearts. Here's a link to ebay where you can see what I'm talking about:

Happy spalshing, canoing and hiking!
