Hi everyone, and welcome to our October...
If you are here from the Really Reasonable Ribbons Ramblings blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened upon my blog, you will want to go back there and start from the beginning. :)
The girls have all prepared projects to share using the October Ribbon Club assortment. It is full of fun Christmas/Winter prints as well as some solids and lace.

Once again, I had trouble deciding which to use so I made three cards. If you are like me, you have so many Christmas cards to make, that you just have to make them quick and easy. One way to add a little extra something is to use a printed ribbon. I didn't even put a bow on theses since they will be mailed and I was afraid it might be too bulky for standard postage. (Normally it doesn't bother me a bit to pay a little extra postage, but as many Christmas cards as we send out, extra postage would really add up quick.
I just used Brilliant White, Really Red, and Forest Green cardstock form Discount Card Stock, (no designer paper) to let the ribbon shine. The colors coordinate perfectly! The cardstock was embossed with Spellbinder's - Holly Ribbon embossing folder.
Isn't it amazing what a little 5" strip of ribbon can do to pretty up a card?
The pearls are from Want2Scrap.
What stamp did I use you ask? :)
I illustrated six sets of "Punny Christmas Critters" for Inky Antics.
This one is #11125MC "Punny Christmas Cows".
(Just copy and past "Punny Christmas Critters" into the search box at the top of the Inky Antics page and click "GO" to see all of the sets.)
