A Totally Ribbon-ific Stampalicious Monday

Well, didn't I go all girlie today??!!!  LOL!!!!!  Our Totally Stampalicious Monday Challenge today is to use three different ribbons on your card/project.  Well.....I must say that this idea came to me right away and turned out pretty much the way I had imagined......a rare occurance in my creative process.  This set, Daisy Scarlette,  from Totally Stampalicious is such a happy set.  Be sure to check out the other ribbon-ific creations by this fabulous and fun team by visit the Totally Stampalicious Blog.

Have to share a bit today......I had such fun on Saturday.  I traveled up to Springfield, MA (yes, the location of last week's F-3 tornado) for Heirloom Productions Stamp Show.  What fun seeing a whole building full of stamping stuff......almost makes one lose their breath....lol!!!!!  My only regret is that I went by myself.  A couple of stampers I might have gone with had other plans, and in my wonderful world of friends, no one is quite into stamping as I am.  Now...why don't some of you live near me, eh?????  Anyhooooo....I had a great time and got some new toys (lots of dies) and, of course, some stamps (which I really didn't need).  I also had the privilege of meetine Kelley from Our Daily Bread Designs and chatted a bit with her.  Wish I had thought to have a picture taken.  I am not generally considered a shy person, but there really are times that I just have a 'shy' burp!!!! 

Now I just need more time to play with my new 'toys'........between DT's, challenge teams, two dogs, and real life, my stamping time is just not what it used to be when I first retired......oh well....that's okay.....I do what I can do and still enjoy my hobby (....or addiciton.....???)

Anyhooooo...thanks for reading this personal note if you've read this far.......once in a while I like to share a bit of what's going on ......I do have a few friends who check in for 'personal news' along with the stamping stuff.

Have a fabulous day!

Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend! I would have loved to go to the stamp show but it was a bit of a trip from Michigan.

Oh, your card is adorable and I'll agree..it is all girly. Love it!
I would sure take those trips with you to the stamping stores, etc. Wherever there are stamping supplies, I'm ready!!! Too bad we're so far apart.
On another note, I can't believe there were tornadoes in that area. What a terrible spring!

What a sweet card.. I love the flowers. Perfect embellishments. I do love when people get "personal" on their blogs. I tend to shy away from it. Love stamp shows. I met Kelley last year at CHA. :) Glad you had a success full trip.
