CASology CUE Card #73: Ribbon!

CASology CUE Card #73: Ribbon!

This week's CUE at CASology is
Ribbon!
Ribbon and the holidays makes me think 
of when my Great Grandmother Meltry had candies called "Ribbon Candy and After Dinner Mints."
She kept them in a little clear mustard yellow glass dish.
She didn't let the kids have any...
They were for company.
We still snuck them anyways!
Though it was not easy, because try as we might, 
it was hard to pry them apart from the candy dish, 
and not get caught while doing it!!!


Pigtails, bows on a present, a ribbon on a wreath perhaps?
A ribbon won in a field event?   
What does ribbon mean to you?

Inspired yet, have any ideas??
Show us (HERE!)

I used a digital main image and an Impression Obsession 
Sentiment to bring my grandmother's candy to life and
make a Hybrid CAS Card!

That image is AWESOME! It's so vintage it's modern, kwim? This is a brilliant take on the cue card!

Your candies bring back memories of my grandma and her special candy stash,which she always made sure we raided...much to my parents' dismay! She had the 'for guests' bowl only, too - and yep, those seemed to need more filling than usual when we were around! Your take on the cue card: only BRILLIANT and beautiful!!

I love that your card was inspired by memories of your great grandma! Some of my most special memories come from my own Grandma. Miss her a ton. Such a special card!!
