Flower Soft & Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop with Blog Candy!!! :)


Hi Everyone!
So glad you can join us on our Really Reasonable Ribbon & Flower Soft blog hop!
If you came here from the Flower Soft blog, you're in the right place. If you just happened on to my blog, you will want to head back there where it all starts so you don't miss a thing. ;)

Both teams have come together and created lots of pretty projects for your viewing pleasure.
Why not take a second to grab a cup of your favorite beverage, set back, hop along with us, and enjoy the view?

If at any time, you get lost along the way, head on back to the Flower Soft blog or our Really Reasonable Ribbons Ramblings blog where you will find a complete list of links to both teams.

There will be prizes awarded to 4 lucky random commenters, so make sure and leave some love on all of the girl's projects to increase your chances of winning some Flower Soft or Really Reasonable Ribbon goodness! :)

For my project, I chose to decorate a holiday center piece. It was very easy to doll up this plain candle using a couple of the beautiful red, white, and blue ribbons from this month's Really Reasonable Ribbon Club Assortment and the Strawberry Ultra Fine and Gold Flower Soft that I was sent to play with. :)


The pretty card stock is Brilliant White and Really Red from Discount Card Stock.
I stamped the sentiment with a generic wood block alphabet set.
Flower Soft Glue and Score-Tape holds it all together. ;)


It's not too late to sign up for this month's Ribbon Club Assortment. Then you will receive a different set of 10-15 yards of beautiful assorted ribbon every month for just $9.00 including S&H! 


OK...your next stop on the hop is the amazing Linda's blog. I bet she has something wonderful to share with you! :)
Don't forget to comment below to increase your chances to win some Flower Soft or Really Reasonable Ribbon. The hop ends on Monday, June 19th and the winners will be announced on both the RRR and Flower Soft blogs on Monday June 20th.

BTW...I also have some blog candy going on right now. If you would like a chance at it, go HERE for the details.

Thanks for dropping by and hopping along with us!

Hugs,
True :D
