Ribbons, ribbons, ribbons

Coffee of the Day - Caramel Hazelnut

Hello! I know that you usually find Mondays here full of lots of DT posts. well today will be only one - Paper Cupcakes. that is because my fever ended up getting the best of me and turning into several different infections. I was a very sick puppy who slept a ton this past week. I had tests and CT scans at the hospital Friday, which wore me out something fierce. again, spent the weekend in bed doing nothing but sleep. thankfully my trusty pups were there to keep my warm and toasty safe! I am so grateful for my dogs! they do bring me so much comfort, especially when I don't feel well. and gosh, are they ever protective of me, too. kinda funny.

but anyhow, you didn't come here for all of that garbage, you came here for some papercrafts. so let's get to it! The challenge this week at Paper Cupcakes is to use ribbon at least 3 ways and have a birthday theme. I chose the fun image 'Party Pig' for my birthday card and paired him with Basic Grey papers from the Cupcake collection. I used the same stitched ribbon, but did different things with it. and yes, those are real balloons hanging from the one piece of ribbon! :) added some buttons and faux stitching along with a stamped senti to finish the card.

I do hope you will play along with us this week. you don't have to use a Paper Cupcake image, but Nina has a freebie on the blog if you would like to grab it. one winner will receive their choice of 2 images from the Paper Cupcakes store. stop by the blog to see the other DT members projects!

and please also visit Kaboodle Doodles, Happileigh Scrappin, Party Time Tuesdays and Heart Song Designs for the weekly challenges at each stop. this project happened to be one I had finished early, which is why I have something for today. hoping to get back to crafting later this week as I feel better.
