Day 14: Slowing Down, But Not Down for the Count

I was exhausted yesterday. (Not much better today...) Just before bed, I made this card. It will be perfect for at least one of the upcoming birthdays. The groovy background paper is a little closer in color to the olives on the ribbon--and how great is that ribbon? I love it, and I foresee many more martini cards in my future.
I've been hearing that people have been inspired by this little experiment of mine. But my friend DD* sent me photographic evidence. She decided to make the matchbook needle books for her stitching group. She used double sided paper, and added bling because that is how she rolls. (It's true; she once told me that you couldn't have too much glitz at Christmas.) Aren't they gorgeous? 

*not my "dear daughter" but a person with those initials

Oooh! I have my supplies and plan on making some of those this weekend - but now I absolutely have to go back to the store for shiny things!
