When life gives you LIMES for Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop


Hello, crafty friends! Woo-hoo! It's time for another Really Reasonable Ribbon blog hop and you are in for a real treat! The design team has been busy creating projects using ribbon from the February Ribbon Club Assortment. This one is the Gorgeously Green Collection and oh.my.gosh... some of the yummiest ribbon ever!


If you are hopping with us, you should have arrived here from the uber talented Kathy's blog. If not, then you might want to head over to the RRR blog to start from the beginning. Trust me... you don't want to miss a thing! :)

I created a fun CAS encouragement card using the awesome Emerald Plaid Ribbon from the February Ribbon Club Assortment. Green is my absolute favorite color and really and truly, any of the green ribbon in this assortment would have complimented this card, but I fell in love with the plaid! :)


I created this gorgeous bow with my Bow-it-All v2.0. You know I love my big bows but this clean and simple project called for a clean and simple bow! ;) 


I colored this Unity image and sentiment with Spectrum Noir markers and even added some salt around the rim of the glass! The only other embellishment is a trio of green Twinkle Goosebumps.


For the inside, I stamped a simple encouraging sentiment (from another Unity stamp set) on a layered panel.


Your next stop on the hop is the lovely Cherry's blog! Be sure to leave some love on all the blogs as you hop... everyone loves and appreciates comments! And when you reach the end of the hop (back at the RRR blog) leave a comment on the blog hop post answering the Question of the Month for your chance to WIN the February Ribbon Club Assortment! :)
