Ric Rac

For some reason, which escapes me at the moment, I don't own a lot of ric rac. That's probably the reason I bought the EK Success Zig Zag Chain punch. Now I can make ric rac any time, any where! Why am I going on and on about ric rac? Embellish Magazine is running a Ric Rac Colour Challenge. The hardest colour for me to put on this card was the turquoise. It's just not a colour I use...ever. This is probably the third time I've used it in the 10 plus years I've been stamping. Thanks to the fabulous DT at Embellish for their inspiration.

ETA - Thanks to my friend Alli Miles, I tried something new on this card - threading paper through the ribbon! Yes, I'm a little behind the times!

This is also for the Splitcoast Stampers Clean and Simple Challenge 76. I'm also playing along with a bunch of the Dare to be Dirty Challenges so check out my Splitcoast Gallery to see what else I've been up to.

Have a great week! I'm loving the sunshine so will be heading out there shortly to do my daily job hunt and maybe read my book. I only have 40 pages left in Wicked. Had a hard time getting into this book so will be happy when I'm finished. Just picked up Girl with the Dragon Tattoo so I think that will be my next read. What are you reading right now?

The 300th blog post is coming up soon... and there's candy... so keep checking back!
