Scaredy-cat....errrrr DOG

Did you do a double take?  Halloween already?   I can't help myself! is always good to get a head start.   I have this cute little holiday greeting made for RRR.   As you can see I did a step by step. I accidentally erased one of my pics but I think you get the gist of it.  1) Gathered my goodies together , 2) Covered my cardstock with papers half and half and started the base of my bow by wrapping it around card and tying knot.  3) I added my button and scallop border made with my sizzix, 4) Added my cute image from Crafty Secrets and the glitter border at the bottom, 5) From here I just added a couple of dimensional goodies - bats and a glitter star using 3d foam adhesive.   I added my banner sentiment at the top and it was done!  Cute and ready to put a bit of a smile on someone this fall!  Enjoy!  Cherry

A Bold Inspiration..

Hi ya peeps. I've got some inspiration for you today featuring the fab ribbons from the Really Reasonable Ribbon store! I call this card "Large and in Charge".

Howdy Partner!

Hello RRR friends! Today I get to share a card I made, yee haw! This adorable image is from one of my favorite stamp companies, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I love coloring her images, even though I still have a long way to go with my coloring skills hehe! :) I don't think there is another ribbon more perfect for a country-feel card than this Red Plaid Ribbon! My next project with this same ribbon is going to be a 3-D grilling apron card and I think this red and white will be just right! I also used some of my favorite go-to ribbon whenever I can't quite find the right one, this White Dotted Organza Ribbon is the best! I tied a bit of it to the tops of the 2 tags that hold the sentiment along with bits of raffia for a hay-like feel. :) I even tied a teensy tiny bow to the horse's tail with Ivory Burlap String, another go-to favorite. I use it all the time!

Thanks so much for letting me share my country card with you! I hope you have a wonderful and creative day!

New Babies for Summer

It's so good to hear the news of a new baby in someones family, so today I am sharing a card that I did for a friend knowing she is having a girl anytime this month!!  How exciting!!

One of my favorite ribbons to use is Seam Binding.  It comes in skads of colors and you can even spray your own for a more vintage look if you get the white to use.  It makes great bows and looks amazing if you wet it and scrunch it and then let it dry. Love it and have stocked up on colors so that I have it for whatever I am doing.  For my card I used the white to go with the My Baby papers from American Craft mixed with a few Pebbles tags.  It was fun to mix the papers and make lots of layers and it went together really easy... and I think she is going to like it.....

Thanks for stopping over today and be sure and check out the new summer RRR Ribbon Club Assortment this month and the Seam Binding ribbons too.

Happy Friday...Teresa
