Thinking of You Card ~ Ribbon of Hope (post #1)

Well best laid plans...
I had great plans to get a lot of crafting done this weekend but when I opened up my email yesterday I had 687 in the one I follow blogs with, 67 in my blog comment one, and 45 in my one for all other things. I knew I had gotten behind but wowzers... that is a lot for just a few days.
I prefer to follow blogs by email that way I do not miss anyone. And I DO open each and every one to see what people are up to.
I read and APPRECIATE each and every comment left on my blog and even read them again in the emails. lol.
My sister is always trying to get me to make a Facebook page and I keep telling her I do not have time for Facebook... Now you can see why. LOL
So if you invite me to comment or like you on Facebook please do not feel bad if I do not because I just can't add one more thing to my plate. Thanks for understanding.

Now on to my card for today.
I found the beautiful Beccy's Place Hope Ribbon while checking out blogs yesterday and just knew I had to make a card with it. I used the Mojo Monday sketch for inspiration and tied on a little Verve enhanced tag to finish it off.

***Sorry about the 'tornado' shadow in my picture centers. My camera gremlins are back***

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card front embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.
*Hope Ribbon from Beccy's Place.
*Sentiment from the Happy Phrases stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Tag cut using the Multi Tags Scallop punch from McGill Creativity.
*Circle punched using the Marvy Uchida 3 in. punch.
*Copic makers RV21, R83 & YG11
*CTMH Watermelon stamp pad.
*Ribbon from my stash. 
May your day always be filled with love.

    Crafty hugs,

  16. It's so hard when you fall behind... it always seem that you will never catch up again. Love what you have done with this image!

    Thanks for joining our monthly challenge here at Path of Positivity challenge. Hope you will join us next time DT Crafting Vicky I’m doing a little giveaway to celebrate 450 followers come and join in

  17. You think you're behind?! In the account that I have posts delivered to (I'm just like you that way), I'm up to over 1600 emails to go through and that is just my inbox. There are more than 6000 others that have been filed for later viewing. In my regular gmail account that I have comments sent to and most of my regular blog related correspondence, I'm now up to 1000. So yeah sister, I hear your pain and then some. We won't even get into everything else I need to do on my to do list. Although in no way am I complaining I just wish that when the time had changed, I had hoped for a miracle of 96 extra hours and not just one.

    Talking of hope, I do believe that this card might be my favourite of the bunch. While I love the papers and sentiments used on the others, there is just something about this one that I really find striking. Another wonderful creation for our Pathway this month. I have enjoyed my time over here this morning immensely and this is a perfect card and message to leave imprinted in my brain as I toddle off to bed. I'm sure I'll be back real soon.

    Thank you for your continued support of the Path of Positivity Challenge.
