Craft Us Crazy Challenge #6

Today is a bittersweet day for me. Today marks the start of another fun challenge at Craft Us Crazy and this challenge will be my last as part of the Craft Us Crazy DT. I have decided to step down from the DT due to time constraints. This spring and summer will be very busy for me with gardening and I would hate to not be able to devote as much quality time to my crafting projects for the DT team. The theme for this challenge is "Thinking Of You" You can make any type of craft project, using any crafting medium as long as you follow the theme. For my DT project, I used the image Penelope Puppy from Robin's Fetish.

The braided ribbon around the image is one long piece of ribbon that is braided using loops. A friend told me this type of braiding is called "Monkey Braiding" One of these days, I will try and have a picture tutorial on how to braid using this method. I learned how to braid using this technique about 25 years ago and it really is fairly easy to do. It is just getting started that can be challenging.
