sweet pear card made with October Afternoon paper

Hello, friends!

What do you all think about the Cricut Circle teaser? That Provo Craft is so clever having everyone guessing like they are! If you want to see some good guesses check out Joy's blog by going here ==> Obsessed With Scrapbooking

On to today's card....



For this card I used October Afternoon paper and Core'dinations Jenni Bowlin cardstock. I just love the new textured cardstock!



The stamp set is from Close to My Heart. I have to admit I have a weakness for anything fruit....especially pears!



The ribbon is just ribbon that I purchased from JoAnn's. I am on my second spool of this stuff. It is FABULOUS!



Thanks so much for stopping by today. Make sure you check back in tomorrow to see what I have made for Hello Thursday. There will also be some awesome prizes given away to some lucky viewers. It will be tons of fun!

Have a wonderful day!!

Your creativity is unending - I love how you threaded the ribbon through the label. Did the label come from the same cartridge as the pear? tfs

Very sweet card. Really like this ribbon too. Can hardly wait till tomorrow. And the bad part is I have to go to work very early tomorrow so it will be late afternoon before I will see everything. It will be hard to contain myself. I will just have to hope the day passes quickly.
