Monthly Blog Hop Really Reasonable Ribbon



It's the 13th of the month, so it is time for the Design Team from Really Reasonable Ribbon to host a blog hop. We will be highlighting different ribbons from the store - and every month, you will have the chance to win our Ribbon of the Month kit! How awesome is that? If you have been following the ribbon path to get here, you should have arrived from Kym's blog. If you just stumbled upon this hop, then you will want to go back to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Ramblings to start. Be sure to leave a little love at each team member's post to be eligible to win this month's kit.


So, I guess I am continuing with the Christmas theme on my blog! We've got to break up this heat somehow. My wreath image is a new downloadable topper from Flower Soft that coordinates with Spellbinders dies. I added bits of Christmas Green, Russet Red and Ultra Fine Sage to add dimension to the image. It's really quick and fun!

For my ribbon, I realized that this awesome Ivory Crocheted lace is perfect for weaving a thinner ribbon through it. So I can have customized crocheted ribbon in a matter of seconds. How cool is that? Plus, just pull it a little tighter like I did, and you've got instant ruffles. For my accent ribbon, I used 3/8" Red Satin Edged ribbon.

So, I guess it's time to get hopping to the next eye candy at Amber's Blog. I know she will have something fantastic to share with you.
