Hello! Glad you stopped by my blog to see what's up with ol' Sherrie! :)
Life couldn't be any busier or sweeter than it is right now! My oldest son is about to graduate, and today I am registering my little guy for kindergarten. So you can imagine the happiness/anxiety/emotional wreck roller coaster ride I am on!! Everytime I stop and think about those two things I get all mushy, so I am not thinking any more, and am focusing on all the tasks and preparations instead. phew! Keeps my head on straight, or just slightly less cocked! LOL!
I made this cute birthday card last week, and yes, there are more pearls and glitter!! I am loving those two details at the moment! Just can't get enough!

Today I have a sweet note card to share with you! It features a hand made flower using the Floral Fusion Sizzlit Die from Stampin' Up!, and those cute corduroy buttons and brads! I love those!
I also added some more ruffled ribbon to this card, I am enjoying it that much!! It is nice to have several different ways to use ribbon, besides just tying a bow or knot! It has helped my mojo for sure!
Here is a close up!
The patterned paper is quite busy, so I kept the embellishments clean and simple to balance the card. I think it works!
Thanks for stopping by and putting up with me today!
Have a good one!

The ruffled ribbon idea is from Ashley Cannon Newell, she does wonderful things with ribbon! AND STAMPS!! I wanted to try this technique and look, so here it is! Just runner adhesive and ribbon. I used a few glue dots to keep the ruffles in place, it was so easy, and I love the way it looks!
Okay, I hope you like it too! :)
