Hello Friends!

Pals Paper Arts Inspiration photo this week is full of bright tropical colors.  Following the sketch from Stamping411, I combined Pink Flamingo DSP, a stamp from Tropical Party and a ruffly red satin ribbon to create this friendly card. And there are a few friends that I would like to say hello to this weekend.  Hello Mary Fish and all of the Pals gathered in Arizona for the Workshop of a Lifetime - I'll be thinking of you! Hello Ann Schach - congratulations on your Teacher of the Year Award!  You will probably be designing your thank you cards in your head as you give your acceptance speech :)  Hello Nance Leedy - thanks for making me smile and sending me a Sunshine Award!

How do you get the ribbon to stay scrunchy . . . I love it! Sew? Glue? Hugs, M
