Monday-Monday ...

From Millan.NetHow is it that the weekend is already OVER?? I had soooo many plans for things I wanted to accomplish over the weekend and sooooo many of them just didn't happen!! Sigh ... one more day woulda done it! I'm gonna blame it on the fact that I smacked my head on the bathroom cupboard Saturday night ... luckily for me, I didn't need stitches, but it did make me see STARS ... and BIRDIES ... and RUBBER DUCKIES!!

So today I'm gonna share a couple more things I made for the SU Leadership display boards ... and this first one uses the cute little Petite Curly Label punch (again!)! I think layering it with the regular ol' Curly Label punch is gonna be one of my new favorite things!!

Stamps:  Pretty Petites (SAB)
Paper: Island Indigo, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Whisper White
Ink: Island Indigo
Accessories: Curly Label Punch, Petite Curly Label Punch (SAB), Vine Street Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (SAB), Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Rhinestone Basics, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Piercing Tool/Mat

I have ALWAYS wanted to make these little curly ribbon hair accessories, so I finally broke down and researched how to get 'er done (thank HEAVEN for PINTEREST!)! Wrap the ribbon pieces on a dowel and then soak them in some water (just long enough to make sure the ribbons are soaked through). Put the in the oven for 25 minutes at 275 degrees and VOILA!! Easy-cheesy!! (And since there was not a SOUL at home when I finished this to take a photo ... not like my husband woulda modeled it for me ANYway! ... and since my doggie was a VERY unwilling model, I had to use this teddy bear to show it off!)

I added a little button in the center of the ribbon curls ...

Stamps: NONE
Paper: NONE
Accessories: Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack (SAB), Whisper White Baker's Twine Headband, Dowel

That's pretty much all for today ... it's 10 degrees outside ... think I"m gonna hafta bundle up like mummy to survive!!

Love the card. My upline and I cased it the other day when we got together to stamp. We changed our colors up a bit, but used your layout. Thanks for sharing.
