Really Reasonable Ribbon's December Blog Hop

Hello everyone, and welcome to our final


of 2012!
If you are here from the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened onto my blog, head on back there and start at the beginning. You won't want to miss a thing!
I simply LOVE the colors in this months monthly Ribbon Club set!


My 50th birthday was a few weeks ago and my sweet friend Lisa Lara sent me a birthday goodie package that had some Basic Grey paper pads called Fiction and Fact, as well as some matching buttons. I have been wanting to play with them and the teal colors in this months set matched perfectly!
I have always admired Lisa's flair for beautiful CAS cards so I went with a simple design that shows off the pretty papers and ribbons.


The Kraft cardstock is from Discount Card Stock, the Le Crème pearls from Want2Scrap, and ink from Ranger. Not sure about the stamp. Sorry. :(

Here is a peek at the goodie set that Bonnie will be giving away to one lucky commeter.
Make sure and leave some love on all of the girl's blogs to increase your chances of winning! :)


Not a Really Reasonable Ribbon  ribbon club member? Why not give yourself a Christmas gift that you will receive again and again? You can get all of the details HERE!

OK...your next stop on the hop is sweet Judy's blog. I'm sure she has something special to share with you! :)

Thanks so much for hopping by!
