RRR/Hampton Art Blog Hop



Hello everyone and welcome to another amazing Blog Hop here at the Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings Blog!  Today we are happy to have our friends from the Hampton Art Blog joining us for a special 'Choose Hope' Blog Hop for Breast Cancer Awareness.
 
Today you will see some great projects from the RRR and Hampton Art design team girls showcasing Stamps and Inks from Hampton Art and Ribbon and Trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I'm sure there will be lots of very inspiring projects! For some daily inspiration, but sure to sign up as a follower on the Hampton Art and Really Reasonable Ribbon Blogs.  You will find daily posts from top notch designers showcasing a variety of styles that you just don't want to miss!
 
I'll start you off with a card here before you begin the hop.  I used the Hampton Art Blooming Memories Clear Stamp set with contains 19 stamps which are all just gorgeous!!  I have 4 of the stamps on my card front.  On the inside of the card on the left I have used the Hampton Art Think Pink Set. 
 
 
I was also able to use some of my new Spellbinder dies including the A-2 Fancy Ribbon Threader.  What a fun die!  I threaded 5/8" Hot Pink Checkerboard Satin through the slits for a fun look.  The breast cancer awareness ribbon was made with 3/8" Pink Double-Faced Satin.
 
 
 
Now let's get hopping and see what the RRR and Hampton Art design team girls have created for us.
 
Here is our blog hop list. 
 
If you get lost along the way, hop on back here and we'll get you back on track.  We are beginning on the Hampton Art Blog and ending here on the RRR blog.  This is a long hop, so if you want to do it over a few days, just mark down where you left off and head on back tomorrow to finish up. 
This blog hop will be open through October 9th.

I love your card, Bonnie! YES, I'm am of that advanced age that I get a mammogram every year. This year I got it the day before my birthday which was just last week. In fact, I've already gotten the letter from the doctor's office to say everything was normal - WOOHOO!

I'd like to take a moment to remember a friend who lost her battle to OVARIAN cancer on September 20. While there is much attention given to breast cancer, little is given to ovarian cancer which is a devastating disease. My dear friend fought the good fight for 3.5 years... please remember Virginia Langford Tate in your prayers.

Gorgeous card Bonnie, I am a follower both here and on FB ( of course!! ) I don't worry as much about breast cancer as I do melanoma, I fried myself as a young adult! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

I love your card, Bonnie - the threading of the ribbon adds such great texture!!! Thanks so much for sponsoring this hop - it's my first as a participant, and what a hop it was! Wonderful talent and inspiration along the way and I'm looking forward to using your beautiful fibers in many many more projects!
