Trying somthing different in the Kitchen Sink!

Well, do ever get tired of the way the furniture is arranged in a room or want to try a different color of paint on the walls? Well, I got in the mood to try some new looks…. First: I tried a new TJ technique. Second: I tried something new with my ribbon… and Third: I gave the KSS Blog a whole new look (go take a peek… I would love to know what you think).

My card today, was made using another fun technique from Technique Junkies. This one is called Depth of Field, which is also in their June/July newsletter. Two techniques down … how many thousands more to go???! Smiley from

As mentioned, I tried something a little different on this card with the ribbon. I pleated the ribbon behind my sentiment… no need for pop dots here.

Thanks for stopping in and remember to head on over to see what the rest of the KSS Crew has cooked up today for KSS Monday.
