Check out the RRR December Ribbon Club. I love these "retro" colors.
My quest to make some Christmas cards prior to December 25 is not going very well. I find I have too much going on to sit down and make any! I am thankful that I can make a few for Design Team work. At least some people will get a card this year! Here is one more to add to the pile!
I picked through all of my Christmas paper pads to find some pinks and blues to match the ribbon. Reason #7982 why it is good to HOARD product! That amazing, vintage image I used is from Oxford Impressions. This is a company I just found and they have AMAZING vintage images. I ended up with three new sets of stamps. Happy day!
Even more amazing is this yummy bow! I used three ribbons from the December Club: tulip Swiss dots grosgrain, mineral ice diamond satin, and Anastasia white crochet lace. I clipped the back off a glitter snowflake button and added that to the top of the bow.
I jazzed up the inside of the card a bit with more ribbon and some punched snowflakes. And the lovely Graphic 45 stamp. Not loving the snowflakes, but I glued them down and cannot remove them without having to re-do the whole inside. Not happening!

Also, my very dear friend Jacquie is the RRR Guest Designer this month! Please make sure you stop by her blog! I met Jacquie about 5-6 years ago at our local scrapbook store and we instantly became friends. She is very creative and innovative. And funny as all get out!
