I thought I would start the day by making a card using a new Sale-a-bration stamp set but it was just too hot in my craft room to be inspired so I have given in and put the air conditioning on and relocated to the kitchen!!  So here I am, updating my blog instead of crafting!!!

I made a card earlier in the week, using a technique that I learnt from Paper Crafter’s Library called Ruched Ribbon.  It’s done without using any cotton, just sticky strip.  I love the effect!!!
