May Arts/Ribbon Resource and Stampendous Blog Hop

 This week, May Arts Ribbonistas are playing with fun, new Stampendous goodies and will bring you gorgeous inspiration and ideas. And as you might have guessed, there will be prizes! Be sure to stop by the The Ribbon Resource Blog for details.

I was sent one of the new Andy Skinner  set, Cling Curiosity stamps.   I thought a masculine card fit with the stamp set, and somehow knots seem like the perfect ribbon treatment for a guy card.  This knot is the Carrick Bend, and I always have to look up how to tie this, I can never remember.  So I guess while I consider myself a pretty good card maker, I don't think I would have ever made a good boy scout!
