Good Morning....It's a beautiful day in Northern California, too beautiful to be spending it inside. So....this will be a quick post. The inspiration for this card was Becca's tutorial on making the border punch frame. I'm a big fan of 6x6 cards and this frame is perfect for that size card. It is also inspired by a discussion we had at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique we were trying to figure out how to make the base for the ribbon flower sticky enough to hold heavier ribbon. I started by cutting a circle with a Spellbinder die....then I ran it through my Xyron. I did get sticky, but not sticky enough for the ribbon I was using. Next I put Miracle tape onto a piece of card stock and then cut the circle using the Spellbinder die....The Miracle Tape made the circle super sticky and the ribbon held very well. I know there are products out there that make sticky circles, but I wanted the ability to use what I have and to create the stickly circles in many sizes. Problem solved....

Like I said, this will be short. I have a birthday luncheon today and I guess going in my jammies.... Not such a good idea. Tomorrow I'll post the card I made for my BFF Carolyn. Happy Birthday young lady...see you shortly!

Happy Monday to all...see you all soon,
