Make My Monday - Red Ribbon

Good morning everybody -

I hope everybody has had a good weekend.  I had quite a busy time, having done my last craft fair of the year, and the best one ever  in terms of sales and I have come away with quite a few commissions, which I am really pleased about.  In fact unless I burn both ends of the candle there is every likelihood that some people are going to end up with shop bought cards (eeeeeekkk!!).  So I think I am going to be putting together a batch of one-layer type, similar to my card today.  To end the day we had dinner with some lovely friends, and chatted until the early hours of the morning.

So welcome to another challenge at Make My Monday.  This time we want to see red ribbons on your creations.

So my one layer card is quite simple.  The Medallion is Stampin Up, and I have used an SU Real Red and Distress Ink Festive Berries on it.  Ribbon is from stash and the flower is home made (not mine I hasten to add) - but just gorgeous.  The sentiment is also SU.  Very stupidly I forgot to run some red ink around the edge of the ticket before it had well and truly stuck, so it sort of fades into the background.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Dream Valley Challenge - Christmas
Gingerloft Challenge - Christmas
Let's Ink It Up - Christmas
paper Sundaes - Anything Christmas
Stamptacular Sunday - Christmas Glitz

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.



  1. Very impressive and that large stamp is a good idea for this one layer type of card - I'm all for quick seasonal cards if you have to make lots

  2. A really gorgeous card Val and the medallion stamp is lovely as is the flower embellishment.
    Sorry you seem to be having blogger problems and hope it gets sorted soon.
