Shopping Our Stash Challenge

What a great Tuesday - and it's time once again for a Shopping Our Stash challenge!!!  Get out all those ribbons or twine you've been hoarding or just forgotten you had and enter our challenge.  Our theme this week is Double the Ribbon - use at least two different ribbon/twine - or a combination of both!!!   Be sure and use up some of that "stash"!

If you're like me, you have WAY TOO MUCH ribbon (and twin)!  My husband started out building me these fabulous ribbon holders (brackets on the wall with a metal bar between them and removable knobs on the end - about 30 inches long) a while back.  We started out with three of them - and I said that was way too many but maybe someday I'd fill them up.............ok, a couple of months later he made one more for me.  Plenty!!!  NOT!  I'm up to six now (and really could use a couple more but hate to ask him again - plus I'm running out of wall space!!)  Anyway....you get the message.....I have too much ribbon...........



My card today is very simple using three pieces of ribbon that I've never used before.  I went with the purple and green.  Added a sentiment, layered the card stock, and it's compete.  A very quick and easy card - and I used up some ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by...........and be sure and stop by Shopping Our Stash and check out all the DT members wonderful creations - and enter your creation!

Great card. I have way too much ribbon too, and never use it. I would love to see the holders your husband made. My ribbon is currently stored two different ways (one for spools, one for loose) and I wonder if that's why I don't use it enough.
