Join Us in the April Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop!


Hello everyone!
Welcome to another...

If you are here from the Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened on to my blog you'll want to head back there where it all starts.

The April Ribbon Club assortment is a perfect blend of springy teals, greens, and white.
Isn't it beautiful? :)


For those of you who have yet to be blessed with a pretty assortment of ribbons and trims in your mail boxes each month, check out the monthly Ribbon Club details HERE to find out how.

I couldn't decide which of the ribbons to choose so I used them all!
Here's my card.


I simply cut a piece of scrap cardstock 1/4" smaller than my card base, ran some ATG along all 4 sides as well as some in the middle. Then I placed strips of ribbon over the entire surface, weaving one piece in and out, down one side. I then trimmed the ribbon to where it overhang the sides by about a half inch then adhered the ends to the back side with ATG, to create my background panel.


I tied the bow with my handy dandy Bow-Easy.


The stamps are #IB-47 "Hello My Friend" from Unity, and #1115MC "Magnificent Men" sentiments from Inky Antics.

I used watercolors on my image, painting the flowers to match the ribbon,but doing the heart in a contrasting pink for a pop of something different.

I just want to take a second to thank Bonnie Garby for having me on her team these past 3 years. This is my last post "for now at least" as a design team member, as I am not renewing my term. Bonnie has generously given me more ribbon than I will be able to use in a life time, and I have some things going on in my life that I need to dedicate more time to, so I'm taking a break. 

Better than all of the ribbon in this world, is the friendship she has given me. That will last a lifetime as well. 
LOVE YOU GIRL!

Thanks also to to all of my design teams sisters, past and present. You have made this team such a blast to play on!
Mmmmmwah!

Your next stop on the hop is sweet Judy's joyful blog. I know she has something awesome to share with you!

BUT, BEFORE YOU GO....
Make sure and leave a comment below about my card, so I'll know you dropped by. Then comment on all of the girl's projects as well. They need some L♥VE too! 
Don't forget to end up back where you started, and answer Bonnie's question for your chance at winning the wonderful prize package from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Thanks so much for hopping by!
