It would be a great help to us if you would consider turning off your word verification if it's active on your blog. To do this is really easy and all you need to do is go to Customize > Settings > Comments > then scroll down to where it says comment moderation and select always (this won't stop anybody leaving you a comment but they won't show on your blog until you approve them). Then scroll down to show word verification for comments? and select No.
We love to visit your blogs and leave comments on all the terrific entries, but the word verification really slows us down. :o)

I Love Fall All Occasion Greeting Card

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Kathy here with a super cute and colorful fall themed card.

i just love these warm, vibrant fall colors!  I found this random fall paper (I have no idea where it came from) while organizing my fall paper stash.  It was such a perfect match for the Autumn Harvest Ribbon Club Assortment that I immediately decided to use it.  I had just one sheet, but that was all I needed to make this 5" x 7" top fold card.


I love to use ribbon or trim to create borders on a card.  For this card, I created a belly band with Random Autumn Leaves on Ivory Grosgrain Ribbon, 3/8" Tangerine Satin with a grosgrain edge, and 3/8" Autumn Bold Vertical Stripes Ribbon.  I used the stripey ribbon as a header on my card, and crochet lace as a footer.  These ribbons add texture, pattern and dimension to the card design.


The bow cluster is made with crisp, vibrant Tangerine Taffeta Ribbon, more of the Random Autumn Leaves and Natural Burlap String.  Honestly, I don't know how I would craft without Natural Burlap String!  I use it and its best buddy Ivory Burlap String all the time!



The flowers on this card are WOC Mixed Earth Tone Chrysanthemums.  They  make me think of the fall mums that line everyone's steps during the fall.  I love them!



I decorated the inside of the card with the rest of this cute paper, then added a few embellies and a pocket.



This pumpkin cookie recipe is a fall favorite at our house...and what could go better with cookies and a hot cup of tea!  YUM!

I hope I've shared some ideas that you can use in your own crafty adventures!  Thanks so much for stopping by!


Cheerio,

kathy

Cute Critter Cards with Plaid Ribbons

Hi friends! Linsey here today sharing two cute greeting cards I made and they feature some of my favorite gingham/plaid ribbons from RRR!
I just love gingham and plaid ribbons of all kinds and sizes! They always seem to coordinate perfectly with any card or creation I make and they are so easy to tie into a pretty bow with having to fuss with the direction the ribbon is in, etc. For these 2 cards, I chose Plaid Black Ribbon and the new Plaid Sherry/Ivory Ribbon. I also challenged myself to use some embellishments from my stash that I tend forget about, which in this case were a couple big buttons tied with Burlap Natural String and different colored sequins. I had fun and I hope you have fun looking! 
And that's all for me! Thanks so much for buzzing by today! Happy crafting!!

Thanks Card

 Hello everyone and Happy Monday to all!
Today I have a super simple card I made for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the beautiful taffeta ribbon , netting and embellishments. On my card I made a big white bow using RRR Taffeta ribbon, and love the way it looks. I tried to keep my card simple which is always hard for me to do...hehehehe

My card consist of two layers from the Delft Collection. I did the bottom layer in leftover design paper, then added some of Really Reasonable Ribbons White Netting in 1.5" before adding the sentiment layer. For my sentiment layer I stamped the Delft Stamps and colored, then used Really Reasonable Ribbons 3-D Foam tabs to pop it up. Next I added the white bow and lastly I added some of the RRR Resin flower embellishments.

Super fast and easy card to make when you need a last minute thank you!
Hope you enjoyed my post for today!
Thank you for looking and have a lovely week.

hugs to all,
Cheryl
