Really Reasonable Ribbon November Blog Hop

Welcome! The November Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop starts at the RRR Blog! This is the first hop with the new Winter Team. I hope you give the new girls some love!

You should be coming to my blog from Ginny's Blog. (For the complete blog list, scroll to the bottom of the post.)

Check out the RRR November Ribbon Club. I have never seen a more beautiful selection of ribbons! I am officially in love with the 3/8 inch diamond satin ribbons!

I am trying to make some Christmas cards before Christmas week is here and I have not made any, nor mailed any!

I paired the new scarlet ribbons with black from the Ribbon Club. I like how the reds and the maroon colors of the paper look together with off-white and black.

Of all the ribbons that RRR has, the diamond satin are my favorite. A close second is the shimmer satin. (Ok, so every month my favorite changes! Can you blame me?!)

The fonts on this stamp from JustRite are so pretty. I cut it out with Spellbinders dies.

I also used a deer die cut from Sizzix. I cut the deer from chipboard and then from paper to give it more dimension.

You may ask how I mail my cards when they are so lumpy. I will use a padded envelope of some sort and pay the extra postage. I don't make many cards that fit in normal envelopes, and the cards that are flat enough for regular envelopes are the ones that I donate!

Here is a peeky at the inside of the card. I used an older CTMH stamp for the inside greeting.
I hope you enjoy the hop! Make sure to leave a comment! I love your comments!
