SOS #123 - Oldest Ribbon

Here I am again today with a Shopping Our Stash entry.  I posted this earlier, but for some unknown reason it seems to have disappeared.  Anyway we were asked to use our oldest ribbon on our cards for this challenge.  The ribbon I used is SU's Bashful Blue which was the very first ribbon I bought once I started making cards way back when.  I have since bought several rolls of this ribbon along with just about every color SU! offered.
The paper is from a pack of paper that I got at Christmas Tree Shop and I think I will be using it often in the coming weeks and months because it has a lot of cute papers for younger recipients.
The sentiment is by CC Rubber Stamp Company and it was cut out with SB dies.  I layered two glittered flowers with a brad in between my two pieces of ribbon just for some added jazz.  This card will be going to Cards For Hospitalized Kids.   I wish you all a great night and wonderful week ahead.  Thanks for taking a peeking into my little card making world.  I always enjoy your company and comments.  


  1. What an uplifting sentiment for this card, Donna, and the paper so pretty. Certainly will cheer up a child.

    I don't know what my oldest ribbon would be and I would probably hate it now....yours looks great. Maybe you could send bucks for some new ribbon since you didn't donate to my other cause. LOL

    You know, I saw your post earlier today and clicked on it several times but it would never open. Glad you got it re-posted.

    1. See there you go again asking me to contribute to the delinquency of a crafter. I'm sure that is a highly punishable offence. LOL

  2. Love that wonderful patterned paper. WOW. Such a pretty, pretty card and a great sentiment too. I still have some of that same ribbon - and still love it.

  3. I still have a half-spool of this ribbon left too, and maybe one day they'll bring back that gorgeous blue card stock color again! I love the glittered flower, and especially that perfect sentiment! Some child will surely be happy to hear that he/she is the best! Sweet card, wonderful cause!

  4. My first ribbon was this same ribbon in certainly celery. I think I bought every color but the one you have here and I think I still have them all. Great papers and lovely card my friend. Hugz!

  5. I like how you've added the flowers to the strips of ribbon. Also, I may or my not have every color of grosgrain ribbon SU has made. *ahem*

    Thanks for joining us at Shopping Our Stash!
