My Big News Involving.......RIBBON!!

My name is Karen, and I'm a RIBBON ADDICT.  It's true!  I've had a ribbon "addiction" for many years.  Some of you have seen my "wall of ribbon" that I've shared before.  Here it is again (and this isn't even all of it my friends - this is just a shot of PART of the wall).  Pitiful, huh?

So, what Design Team could be more perfect for me than the REALLY REASONABLE RIBBON Design Team?  Well, it's true.  I applied to be part of this amazing Design Team, and they extended an offer which I quickly accepted.  After all, a girl can NEVER have too much ribbon, right?.  How exciting!  I'm really delighted about this new adventure in my life, and I'm SO looking forward to designing with their amazing ribbons.  You can see them all here in the shop at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
This card was made using some My Mind's Eye patterned paper, and a sticker from a My Mind's Eye package of embellishments that Teresa Kline sent me.  She's a sweetheart, and a very talented crafter.  If you've never seen her lovely blog, you can click on her name (above) and it will take you right there for a peek.  The scripture I used is a free file available at Word Art Wednesday.  We would LOVE to have you stop by and play along in our challenge this week.  We have TWO great prizes this week, and you could be one of the lucky winners.  Here is a link to the Word Art Wednesday challenge.
I'm sharing my card in the following challenges:
Party Time Tuesday Challenges - Challenge #186 - Anything Goes
Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - Challenge #125 - It's Only Words - My focal point is the scripture which contains my favorite kind of words - those from the WORD OF GOD.  "Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and light unto my path."  Psalm 119:105
Catered Crop Challenge Blog - End Zone Recipe Swap - I was inspired by the black and white stripes (which matches my background paper) and the reds in the photo
Thanks for stopping by to share my exciting news and to take a peek at my card.  Have a great week, and happy crafting.


  1. How many lovely ribbons do you have
    great card
    hugs Tamara

  2. I love your beautiful card! Congrats on joining the REALLY REASONABLE RIBBON design team! Your work is awesome!

  3. Congratulations!! You will be a great addition to their team and they are fortunate to have you design for them. Your ribbon wall is definitely impressive but it's also so pretty!! I wish I could have open ribbon would be so much easier to see what I have. However, one of my feline crafting supervisors likes to eat my ribbon so it's all closed storage for me. :)

  4. Such a wonderful card! Congratulations on your new DT position!

  5. I love your card Karen! It's really pretty & that ribbon you used is your wall of ribbon too & congrats on your new DT position!!!!
