Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop and My 10 Minute Christmas Card!



Hi Everyone!

It's the 13th of the month so it's time for another Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings blog hop!


If you found your way here from Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings, you are in the right place!
If you just happened on to my blog, head on back there, because that it where it all starts! :)
You don't want to miss any of the awesome projects the girls have created for your viewing pleasure...or a chance at a great prize from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

You all know how us card artists are kind of "expected" to hand make all of our Christmas cards right? Well...I find it hard to get enough made the way I usually make cards. Some of mine take hours!
I created a fun little card in just under 10 minutes by embossing a background, using some fun ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon's October Monthly Ribbon Club Kit, and adding a big Christmas sentiment from Inkadinkado's Christmas Silhouettes stamp set.
Here is my card...


I used Discount Card Stock's -Posh Red Linen and Brilliant White.
If you aren't a ribbon club member, now would be a great time to sign up! With the holidays coming up I know you can use this fun set. BTW...I have seen a sneak peek at the November set and it is STUUUUUNNNNIIIINNNGGGG!  {{Said in my best Oprah voice}}
You get automatic shipments of 10-15 yards of assorted beautiful ribbons for just $9.00 domestic and $11.50 international!

This is what the entire October club kit looks like...


Bonnie will be giving away an October Ribbon Monthly Club kit to a random commentor so please make sure and comment on all of the girl's projects to increase your chances of winning!


Your next stop on the hop is Andrea's Creative Paper Trail. You're gonna love it! :)
Thanks so much for dropping by today!
Hugs,
True :D

I agree that it can take quite a while to do holiday cards. Some of my special ones can take a few hours too! I try to do three or four of the same design, but I find that is what takes most of the time - the planning process!

I really like what you did with the ribbons on your card, and this card would make up quickly! Pretty!
