Time for a Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop and a Mother's Day Wish



Hello everyone!
First off I would like to wish all of the mommies (including mine) a HAPPY MOTHER"S DAY!  :)

Secondly, I would like to welcome everyone to another...



If you are here from the team blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened onto my blog, you'll want to head back there to the start so you don't miss a thing!

Bonnie picked beautiful pinks and blacks for the May ribbon club assortment and I can hardly wait to see what everyone has created with them!

For my project I created a Mother's Day card for a very special lady in our lives. Our daughter-in-law Kristin. She is expecting our very first grandchild!
I am a firm believer that from the very second of conception, a baby is a baby, so that makes Kristin a mom even though the little one is still in her tummy. :)
I used an adorable digi illustrated by Mo Manning from Mo's Digital Pencil called "mother to be 1".
I broke out with my Copic markers for a change on this one. :)


I don't think Kristin will mind if I share the inside of the card with you. :)
Notice the two little strips of pink at the bottom. They were trimmed from the 6x6 designer paper that I cut for the front panel, and could have been tossed in the trash, but I saved them to ad a little sumpin' sumpin' to the inside. :)


Here is a peek at this month's Ribbon Club assortment. Isn't it yummy?


If you are not a Ribbon of the Month club member, there is no better time than now to sign up! Who wouldn't like to get a fun surprise assortment of pretty ribbon in their mail box every month?

The pretty designer paper is Fancy Pants - Summer Soul, which is available from StopAndScrap.
The pretty bling is from Want2Scrap
If you would like to see another shot of the card and get the names and links to all of the bling that I used, head over to the Want2Scrap blog after you have finished the hop. ;)
I used Beacon- Fabri-tac to put it all together. 

Make sure to leave a comment on all of the girl's blogs (including mine) so you can increase your chances of winning a fun prize from Really Reasonable Ribbon!

Your next stop on the hop is sweet Linda's blog. I bet she'll have something awesome to share with you!

Thanks for dropping by!
