Really Reasonable Ribbon November Blog Hop


Good morning, Blogger Peeps! I am guest designing for the Really Reasonable Ribbon again! It is time for their November Blog Hop, which starts at the RRR Blog! I want to thank Bonnie for inviting me to play along again this month! Joining in the ribbon fun is always something to be thankful for!

You should be coming to my blog from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog. (For the complete blog list, scroll to the bottom of the post.)

Here is a peeky at the RRR November Ribbon Club Assortment. This collection contains rich and stunning browns and creams, plus some luscious plaid! 


I created a simple Thanksgiving card to share today. I had purchased the Bow-It-All tool from RRR some time ago, but I could not get the hang of using it, so I put it aside. I pulled it out the other day and watched Bonnie's videos, and now I am a bow-making mastermind!
  

I decided to not "junk up" the card, but to allow the beautiful ribbon and lace have center stage! Do you love that 3-loop, double bow? I know, right?! All my hoarder buddies will be impressed, too! I used old Halloween paper for my backgrounds! All the paper, except for the image is My Mind's Eye Spider's Web from 2009! 


I use a strip of the Arianna Natural Crochet Lace on a diagonal. Then I made the fabbie bow with Ivory/Brown/Copper Plaid. {That needs a cool name like Dexter Riley Plaid or something, right?} 


That lovely image is from Graphic 45 Place in Time (November). That is one of my all-time favorite images. I wish Graphic 45 would just make a whole booklet of these classic images, because I would buy a ton of them!


And here is the inside. More of the Spider's Web paper. And a VERY OLD stamp, from Inkadinkado called Harvest Expressions. That's all from me! 

Now, hop over to Ginny's Blog next!

Here is the RRR Blog Hop Order in case you get lost!
