    Have a great day!

I know You want to save the important stuff for the people who join but I think You need to give some of the new viewers something more interesting to get them interested in joining. The Lady that did the video did a good job and has a very pleasant clear voice.

  47. Tracy, these are gorgeous cards! They are so cheerful and bright! I love how you used the embossed frame around the ribbon. Can’t wait to try something similar.

You girls are so talented and come up with so many wonderful ideas. I often use some of the cards prepared here as inspirations for my own. Keep up the great work!

  52. I am a sucker for ribbon!! The colours are awesome! Beautiful cards. Thanks for sharing.

  53. LOVE THAT RIBBON! What a neat concept to have grossgrain and satin on the same piece. It really sets off your card.

  58. I did not know you could buy ribbon like this. It really is very effective- in both cards- simply love the look.

  62. So pretty! I LOVE the ribbon that you used. so bright and make me think of Spring! TFS

  63. I do not have a large ribbon collection and have always heard great things about M.A ribbon. Thanks for the inspiration!

  64. Thanks for another great idea…..just the kind of card I needed to get made this weekend…

  65. I love to collect and use ribbon to embelish my cards and gift boxes.
    What a beautiful card. I have a birthday frient who will love this design.
    Thanks for the visual video.

  66. This ribbon is so fun both in color and texture… I’ve never seen a half and half like this before.

  67. That ribbon sure looks like a fun one!! And I love how clean the project is! Those are my type!

  68. Wow I love the cards, I think will try to make one but not with the same ribbon, but that’s okay. I think it will be a great addition to my cards. Thanks for the inspiration.

  69. Very beautiful cards. I like the ribbon but just never seem to know how or when to add to a card. Not good with making bows (even with the bow maker I have) so I don’t add ribbon. But the technique you demonstrated in this week’s video is going to help me a lot. Thanks for the inspiration and sharing the various techniques.

  70. So bright & cheery, I love it and also love the ribbon. Such a neat look to it.

    Thanks for a chance to win.

  71. Love, love, love this ribbon! The grosgrain and the satin texture together are perfect. I am also very drawn toward the bright, fun colours. The faux bow is a fun, easy way to add a perfect touch to a card without all of the aggravation of tying and retying, and the woven ribbon card is simply extravagant. Thanks for the chance to win 🙂

  72. Perfect ribbon colors for ring and easter card projects. Thanks for sharing the video tutorial great for newbie like me.

  73. Love the cards. The ribbons are bright and beautiful, would love to use them on my spring/summer cards. Good luck everyone!

  74. I love both cards and especially like the combination of satin with grosgrain in the ribbons. I’ll have to try the weaving technique on a card. That was great!

  75. I have not yet gone through a day that I have not learned something new and this faux ribbon bow is a new technique for me. Wining a prize would be fantastic as I don’t do mail order and must take what the local craft store as on it’s shelves.

  76. Loved the tute!! And this is the first time
    I’ve seen the double texture ribbon. It sure
    is pretty and it looks like it would lend itself
    well for hand made flowers, of all kinds.

  77. What a simply wonderful card. I don’t think I have seen that ribbon anywhere – that is different and I bet makes beautiful bows. I am not real partial to grosgrain as I don’t think it makes nice bows, but with the added satin, it might.

  78. I love the cards that were done. I love the colours of the ribbon. So spring/summer. I try to incorporate ribbon into many of my cards. I’m still not a pro at ribbon and bow making, but at least I make he effort.

  79. Lovely card and what a great idea for ribbon…grosgrain AND satin! Thanks for the great ideas.

  80. I love the idea of grosgrain and satin together! Spring colours look terrific too! Thanks for video.

  81. Wow! Great cards. I love using ribbon(maybe a little too much!!) and I liked your quilt idea a lot. Great way to use up small left overs too!

    Tomma 🙂

  82. Love the look of the grossgrain ribbon and the colours are just so spring like; thanks for the chance to win.

  85. Love the cards! Thanks for the chance to win some yummy May Arts ribbons!
