My new friend Patsy of PRAIRIE BIRD BOUTIQUE!




                                  Hello!   I came back like promised.  I am so excited to share with you a new shop I found on etsy..it is ran by fellow etisian Patsy of Prarie Bird Boutique http://www.etsy.com/shop/PrairieBirdBoutique.  I have had a love affair with vintage seam binding for some time now using it on my altered plaques etc but have really become smitten with the imperfectly perfect look of crinkled seambinding.    Patsy has the most gorgeous wrinkle ribbons...straight from wrinkle heaven.  These are the types of wrinkles you want to KEEP! I don't know if I can pick a favorite color...she has the full rainbow!  If I had to it would be this dark royal type blue...love it paired with my reds I adore.  Patsy also sells paper lace in sweet pastels and offers up her own artistic creations. I can guarantee that you won't find a better quality and price.  So  I wanted to create some cards just for the sole purpose of show casing her ribbons...I carried the ribbons around each and every card and tied big double and sometimes triple bows to get that luscious look I love.  If you are wanting to add a bit of "tea-staining"  to your ribbons just use a little inking....you can see that I added it to my first card in the close up.  Adds a bit of age to it.  I have several other projects that I can't share just yet using her ribbons..but will be sure to share when I can.   So if I were you I would go take a peek and visit Patsy's shop she is very sweet... a country gal just like me.... you will like her!  ..BUT Please leave me a bit of ribbon!  Tell her I said "Hi".....Well I am off to create some more!  Happy Summer gals!  xoxox, cherry

This is a great find for you. It is the perfect addition to your already beautifully created masterpeices. It adds a touch I like so much. Every one of your creations on this post are exceptional. Keep on creating because I love visiting here.

So incredibly GORGEOUS!!!

Your designs are always inspiring.Thank you for the link to the seam binding. I am always looking for new colors. Could you email me the name of the color of the lovely dark blue that was your favorite? You used it with my favorite October Afternoon red and beige checked paper. There are so many blues and color is so difficult to tell on a computer.

What can I say that I've not already said in the past month...or that's not already been said here... you are so T.A.L.E.N.T.E.D. and C.R.E.A.T.I.V.E. and your blog is #1 on my list... as Mr. Rogers once said: 'won't you be my neighbor?' LOL
