Shopping our stash - challenge 1

Happy Tuesday!

I hope those of you who celebrated Victoria Day as a stat this past weekend enjoyed the extra day off :-)  We were super productive--painting the fence and the deck and doing all kinds of yard and home maintenance--finally I pleaded exhaustion and told hubby I HAD to go take care of a craft deadline (thank goodness!) LOL!

Anyway, this is the first challenge at SOS, and it is to use ribbon--but there is a twist, we want you to use ribbon in a way you don't usually use it, or use the colour you have the most of.  For myself, I scrunched and did a ribbon flower using that twisting technique--first time I've done it and so easy, I'll be doing them often now!



 
The stamps are all SU ones that have been gathering dust for years, as is the ribbon I used, so I think this totally qualifies for shopping my stash!
