Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings Blog.  This time we have a Sports Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.

So, my son Tom is doing triathlons now.  I don’t know where he got that from.  Clearly NOT me!  But he’s doing very well, he’s in great shape, and I’m so proud of him.


I made this card using a photo of him crossing the finish line in his last race.  I was ringing that cow bell like a maniac.  Hey, ya gotta have fun, right?

Since I’m going to send him this card, I had to keep the ribbon and trims sufficiently ‘manly’.  I ran a piece of 5/8″ Apple Green Satin with Grosgrain Edge Ribbon around the bottom of the card under the swim, bike, run logo and topped it with a thin strip of Black Netting.  The black netting is 1-1/2″ wide, but you can easily trim it down to whatever width you want.  This is about 3/8″ wide.  I also added some ribbon loops to the side of the photo.  I used Black Delicate Stitched Satin and Turquoise Checkerboard Satin.
I hope you’ll head over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings Blog and play along with our challenge.  Any type of project is welcome.
Thanks for stopping by!
