MM90 - Merry Christmas!


When I saw that my friend Lesley's Merry Monday challenge now has its own blog, I wanted to play along. This week's challenge is to use ribbon or twine.



Although I rarely use ribbon on my cards, I have a ton of it! One year, I bought two rolls of this Merry Christmas Ribbon, put it away and promptly forgot about it. I also had this new Tim Holtz jingle bell die that I thought would work well. I left the tails of the bow long so that you can see the full "Merry Christmas".

 Festive Friday will be returning soon - between these two challenges, I should be in good shape by the time Christmas rolls around again!

Wow, love this mega jingle bell! Fab ribbon too. I'm not sure what's worse: buying stuff and forgetting you have it, or not being able to find stuff you know you have! I suffer from both ;)

Wow-that silver jingle bell is just gorgeous and makes such a statement. Brilliant idea to have the sentiment on the ribbon. It must have been hard to have it line up just so.

Hi Ardyth,
Great card, love the ribbon. I've just found the MM challenge ..... so much fun. I've used the smaller version of the jingle bell die on my challenge card ..... great minds and all that!
I'm hoping to join in each week ..... It'll be nice to get on top of my Christmas cards for once instead of starting them in Decmeber :) xx

The silver jingle bell is such a nice element on your car and I like how the Merry Christmas on the ribbon is sitting perfectly on the side of the ribbon! Thanks for joining us at Merry Monday this week!

I'm so glad you got an HM honor from MM, Ardy, or I was going to have to box some ears over there! That ribbon was MADE for this challenge!! Hugs, Darnell
