Waiting for the Valentines!!!!

Happy Sunday everyone from Jacque and all of the Really Reasonable Ribbon Ramblers! We hope you are having a great weekend wherever you may be!

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I took this opportunity to complete a little project for that special someone. Of course all of the ribbons and trims I used are from the January RIBBON CLUB Assortment and you should check them out if you are not yet a member!! They are sooooooo Valentine-y!!!

All I actually did was to decide upon an image which happens to be Tilda waiting on the mail and adhered her to a little dollar red mailbox from Target or Michaels and then started trimming the mailbox with lovely ribbons from the RRR shop: Heart Outlines on Red Grosgrain, Shimmer Satin Red, and White Satin. I also used several layers of the Puffy Red Hearts in Line to make the shingles on the roof and to decorate the envelope on the back of the mailbox.
On the back of the mailbox I used the same ribbons to cover the flag stand.

I hope you like my little RRR creation and will drop by here every day to see the exciting cards and projects which await you. Big hugs coming your way!!!
