DeNami Design's November Blog Hop: THOUGHTFUL THANK YOU!

Well, I'm happy that it's another blog hop day for DeNami Design, but I've been so swamped, so I'm going to make this short and sweet (which is definitely a change for those of you who have read my previous ramblings).

You should have arrived from Greta's blog: GG Creations.  She's such a talented blogger!

To start at the beginning, visit DeNami Design's blog.

Make sure to leave comments on all the blogs for a chance to win a gift certificate to DeNami Design!  

My list of people I should send THANK YOU cards to seems a mile long, so when I saw this theme, I was thrilled because it would get my act in gear to make those needed cards.  However, life got in the way.  I've been so busy.  I've had no time.  I started making these cards a few weeks ago, and then BAM!  I lost my mojo mid-card.  I was just stumped.  Couldn't figure out how to fix it.  So, that's when I started making the second card.  However, I hit a brick wall there, too.  However, here I am...the night before the hop, and I have two unfinished cards!  ACK!  When in doubt, though...add RIBBON!! are my cards:

Here's a close-up of the layered ribbons I used.  You can also see the background stamping better.  (Please note, the ink colors didn't photograph well.  I actually used Memento inks in Bamboo Leaves, Rhubarb Stalk, Rich Cocoa & Potter's Clay...all very autumnal colors.  However, the photograph looks almost neon.  Go figure.)

Here is card #2:

Next stop on the blog hop is the phenomenal Wendy Elliot.  She's one of my biggest inspirations, and I'm always in awe of her!

Thanks for stopping by!
