Winter Wishes

Well this is believe it or not my first time Paper piecing a card I've done her dress and sleve arms on her outfit and boy is that tiny cutting to do then I trimmed the whole image out and am very surprised I didn't chop her up wrong lol. I got to try out my new die from MFT LOVE them :)

Ribbon - Micheals, Stampendous embossing, Studio G Chalk & Memento Ink, Bling and Brad From Stash Coloured with Touch Markes & Sparkly Gel Marker,

So this time around on Show Us Your Stash 8/26they want to see ribbons and this is easy for me I'm a little bit of a neat freak/save space kinda girl. I try to keep all my stash contained so I don't get out of hand the ribbons have been rolled up really tight and then taped or wrapped up. Some are in little baggies colour cordinated of course to make it easy to find the fatter ribbons are just floating around in a little pile there the thin ribbons/fibers wrapped around boards to keep them tidy. Let me just say I'm trying not to buy anymore ribbon ... but when you see some of that new stuff at Micheals AHHHH I so want some more but I have to make room for them in these little tubs so I'm trying my best to use them up so I can get new ones :)
