Wee Memories Ribbon Challenge

Hi peeps! How's your Thanksgiving weekend going? I ate way too much on Thanksgiving day. What can I say, hubby, my sister-in-law Kristen, and my brother-in-law Mike are such good cook. Hubby made seven layer salad, Kristen made this super delicious brocolli caserole (and I usually don't like brocolli), and Mike did the turkey. Then for desert we had pumpkin pie & creme brule. Soooo yummy! 

And, I do enjoying my long weekend and break from work. It's nice to chill out at home. On top of  that, yesterday, I was so excited that I got to spend a couple hours hanging out with Trinh and just stamping. She brought her Hero Arts stamps for me to use and she used my Papertrey Ink stamps. We both were so busy chatting and just ended up stamping a bunch of images, without completing any cards. Love it!

I so wish my friends that do stamping live close by instead of in another city, so we can get together more often. :) Thank you, Trinh for coming & see me. Truly enjoy it hanging out with you!

Now, on to Wee Memories "Ribbon" challenge for this week sponsored by Charleston Scrapbook Co. 



See, while I was cleaning up for Trinh's visit I saw my pile of short ribbons, that basically too short for anything, but perfect for die cut. I just glued all  the random ribbons on a piece of cardstock & then cut the tree shape out of it. 

Challenges:
Crafty Creations - christmas
Freshly Brewed - winter or christmas
ABC Christmas - CHRISTMAS and x is for xmas

I also added glitters on each line of the ribbon to add some sparkles to the tree. Love it when I can use scraps. Nothing get wasted. :)

Check out all the awesome creations by the DT here. Well, that's it from me. Still enjoying the rest of my long weekend. Love it. Cheers!
