Really Reasonable Ribbon May Blog Hop



The May Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop starts at the RRR Blog!

You should be coming to my blog from Dawn's Blog.

Check out the RRR May Ribbon Club! That is some HOT ribbon! Lots of satin and grosgrain!


Here is the card I made for the hop. Really, l had planned to use the pink, but once the card got going...I only used the black! Such a wimp! I was whining to my friend that I am not very creative with ribbon and was not sure why Bonnie keeps me on the team. But my friend told me that she loves to see how I use ribbons on cards and I "inspire" her to buy ribbon all the time! Hoorah! My job here is done! {grin}


I stamped this Greeting Farm image with black ink and colored her with Copics. I was trying to match the pink ribbon. When it came time to pick papers, I really did not have much in the way of pink! Not a color I buy often, I guess. I decided to use this wild Bo Bunny paper in my stash (not sure what I was thinking as this is not my normal color palette either!)


I love this black sheer organza with satin center ribbon. I have it in several colors. It is so rich!


I decided to make a Thank You card because I was looking for a thank you card the other day and I did not have very many. Can't run out of thank you cards! (By the way, I used MFT Sketch 71 as my inspiration.)


I hope you enjoy the hop! Make sure to leave a comment! I love your comments!

What a cute card! I get it about not having the color in your stash. I used to think I was not a "pink" person, but over the past few months I have seen so many pink cards, ribbons, etc and suddenly realizedp- I AM a girly- girl who loves pink! Your card is so fun- Happy Mother's Day!
