CardMaker May Arts Blog Hop!

     
      Good morning, and welcome to a ribbon-tastic blog hop with the CardMaker team and our designing friends, sponsored by May Arts!  May Arts will be giving away four spools of the winner’s choice!
   Leave plenty of comments along the way while you hop today to enter to win a prize of 4 spools of ribbon – your choice!  And that includes anything from their Winter 2013 New Releases These are so new they aren't even listed on their website yet.  So you'd be the one of the first to get your hands on 'em! Giveaway details can be found on the May Arts blog

You should be arriving from the talented Jennie's Harper's blog...
     
   I had some really fun choices of ribbon for my sample today!  I decided on this adorable green and white grosgrain with a printed stitch and scalloped edge.
 
     The detail of the tiny punched holes in the scallop is just amazing!  Little finishes like this on trims really take your designs to another level.

  41. Hi, I would like to know if Gina still has a store in Madison, WI? I was traveling from Milwaukee to St. Paul today when I detoured to visit the store in Mc Farland and could not find it.
    Thank you.
