Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge-Anything But A Card...AND a WEE BIT OF SWEET STUFF!!!!

Happy Wednesday and welcome to December!!!! Where in the world does time vanish to??? I can't believe that we are now in the throes of the holiday season!!! But I will wander along with the rest of you!! lol

Today is the first day of the new Challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings blog and I hope you will join in with us this time!! The theme this time is to make anything but a card, using ribbon and reminiscent of WINTER!!!

I started with a little clear container of Wilton Christmas Cookie Cutters and removed all of the labels and proceeded to decorate the canister with several kinds of ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon shop. For the body of the canister and the handle I used Christmas Vertical Stripe Satin and a darling red snowflake grosgrain which I think must have been one of the specialty ribbons from the marvelous monthly Ribbon Club! For the front panel I used that sweet Kitchen Tilda from Magnolia-licious , stamped her on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics. I also added several gingerbread boy and cookie cutter buttons to her panel...which you can perhaps see clearer on the picture below. On the top of the canister I used several layered Nesties with a Large Poinsettia from Wild Orchid Crafts.

On one side of the canister I added a red whisk and tied it on with Red/White Twisted Rope and on the other side I added a gingerbread boy ornament and tied it on with Bakers Twine Cherry.

Gosh it would be fun if you would come and join us in the challenge. You could win one of 2 gift certificates! For all of the details and inspiration from the rest of the Design Team, come on over to Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings.

SWEET STUFF!!!!!!!........

And since I don't intend on baking Christmas Cookies, I would love to offer you a little touch of SWEET STUFF!!!! You can win this decorated canister, a Christmas Maggie, the rest of the set of Gingerbread ornaments, some Prima Poinsettias, some darling small red poinsettias from Wild Orchid Crafts, some red and green ribbons, and some red and green gems...How's that??? Just leave your comment before Saturday, December 4 at midnight.

Sorry I didn't take a pic of the SWEET STUFF this time BUTTTTTTTTT I am banished to bed rest until next week...Seems that my lungs were compromised by the chemo and radiation and I have picked up a bacterial infection which is causing asthmatic bronchitis and pneumonia.....heck that sounds like a horror story, doesn't it?? hahhaha So I can either follow doctor's orders (bahhhhhhh) or go to hospital...sooooo the funny part of this story is DO NOT USE COPICS IN BED when there is a chance of falling asleep!!!! I now have a lovely set of sheets with the most gorgeous B91-Pale Grayish Blue LARGEEEEEEE spot and one completely empty B91 Copic...hahahahahahah.

Anyway, hope you like my little creation and will come back and visit me again...Take care, breathe clean air, and enjoy the rest of your week. Sending you big Lysol-enriched hugs!!!!!

Jean said...

What a simply adorable idea Jacque, but when your Dr said to stay in bed he meant to rest!!!! Do not color, do not cut, do not work, REST!!! Get well... or someone will come over there and take care of you.. It is rough, I know, but I listen and do get better faster, so no more fooling around, rest and get better faster... PLEASE!!

Oh dear! went back up to the top to see the canister again and lost all what I had written. Okay start again. Sorry to hear that you are unwell Jacque. Do what the doctor says and get well for Christmas. I hear it is really cold over there so keep wrapped up nice and warm.
Your canister is so adorable. I love the ginger bread man on the side and the baby ones by Tilda. You have colored her in so lovely. Hmmmmm I have no cookie cutters or a nice red whisk. Gotta be in to win right?
Get well.

Lynda Nielsen said...

Ohhhhh Jacque, you are too funny.... First of all, your project is AMAZING... as they usually are! but to read about falling asleep in bed with copics... I'm dying here... But the best part was when I had to stop and take a double look at what you wrote about Lysol. YOU AND YOUR LYSOL!!! I almost thought you told someone to drink it... Poor Rosette! LOL
I am headed to the Dr today for sure, me thinks me might have strep throat. Sickness seems to be everywhere, you my girl better get LOTS of rest and FOLLOW your DR's orders.

Great Big LYSOL covered hugs,

Jessie said...

It's so cute! Sorry you are sick and I hope you feel better soon.

Your candy is just lovely - such a sweet idea too! :D Thanks for a chance to win xx

Warm wishes,

Teri said...

Designer sheets by Jacque, you could have a little side business and make money to buy more Maggies!!! LOL!!!! Seriously, I hope you feel better and stay in bed! I'd be coloring, too, it doesn't seem stressful!!! Your project is, of course, perfect!! I don't like to bake either, usually, ( or cook-heehee!) but how cute to hand out little cookie cutters to visitors at Christmas time!!! I am amazed by your creativity every day!!
Get well soon,

Kimberly S. said...

Oh....I am so sorry to hear you're not feeling good!! I hope you get better soon!! I'm off work all week because of my lungs and bronchitis as well. Granted, it's not as bad as yours, but it's not fun to be sick and limited to the house!

I absolutely LOVE this canister, and I hope I win!! I am a gingerbread fanatic!!!! And Christmas is always such a tough time for me because it's when my mom died a few years making cookies with the kids would be GREAT! I have to be strong for my kids so they have a GREAT Christmas! have THE BEST sweet stuff EVER!!!

Take care, and try not to Copic up any more of your sheets!! LOL! That sounds like something I would do!! :o)

Love the little cannister cutie - at the rate I'm going, I will be hitting the nearest Costco for a big box of their bakery Christmas cookies and trying to pass them off as something I baked myself..;O{
Enjoy the rest of your week!

Miranda said...

hi Jacque,
wish you well! Luv the cookiemaker box especially because it has one of my favourite Tilda's on it.

And I guess that many designer started their career with falling asleep in bed with the copics still in their hands. Just tell everyone you designed it especially :-)


dj said...

Hi Jacque,
OMG you make me laugh, what a funny story, HOWEVER I am so sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. Follow the Dr's orders and stay in bed and take care of yourself.

Anne said...

Love your take on the little cookie cannister and the ribbons are just beautiful. The gingerbread man is lovely - I can almost smell the gingerbread! So funny that you're still 'altering' stuff when you're asleep. Now that's a crafting addiction for you. But on the serious side, hope you rest up and follow the doc's orders, we all want you well again xxx

Linda S. said...

Oh my, what a messy bed you must have woke up to!! Funny story!! I am lovin' your cookie cutter gift pail. Very clever. I am not doing Holiday baking either. To quote something I recently read, "The only reason I have a kitchen is because it came with the house". Sums it up perfectly for me!! Great candy, and thank you for the chance to win it. Take care of yourself. Linda S. in NE

Claude said...

Oh, I hope you get better soon, Jacque! At least it gave you a funny Copic story to tell :)

Thanks for the chance to win this amazing sweet stuff!

Julie M said...

Sorry to hear you're not well, Jacque. Take good care of yourself and get better real soon! I would so love to win this gorgeous set, even before you decorated it - and now it's even more gorgeous.

Thanks for the chance to win.

Julie :o)

karensk said...

La Vikinga said...

Hello; I like your newest creation!!
Banned to bed doesn't seem like a nice thing to be, but if it's what's needed you'd better do as the doctor says if it has to do with your LUNGS!! So don't play around and see to it that you get out of bed after the weekend so we can continue seeing your artwork for a long time more, OK!!!


Handmade by Vivi said...

what a gorgeous creation you brought to us today! I love it!!
I hope you follow Doc's instructions, get a lot of rest and no more dots on your sheet...hehe
Take a great care of yourself Hun!

Mary Lou said...

Jacque you are AMAZING!!! This is adorable!!

Susan said...

I have nothing like this, and of course your magical mind and hands made it even better! so very pretty and adorable. I would sooo love to win it. BUT...more importantly, I am wishing for you to have a speedy and completely successful recovery...I have asthma(born with it) and I get bronchitis easily, and have had pneumonia...NONE of which is nice. My Dad and MIL died of COPD...there is nothing worse than not being able to breath!

Hi Jacque,
Really sorry to hear you're feeling rather poorly and pray the antibiotics take effect very soon and that it won't be too long before you're feeling a lot better. Even throughout your illness, I truly love and admire your upbeat attitude.
Thank you for sharing your lovely cookie set and for the chance of winning.

Hi Jacque,

Bummer what radiation/chemo does to the body. I hope you are a "good girl" and follow the doctors orders and stay in bed. Heck, You could just decorate your sheets while you are there...OOPS, you already did that!

Your sweet little candy is fun and would be nice. Thanks for offering us all a chance for it. Get well soon. I am getting a new hip in Jan and not looking forward to the first 3-4 months. But we gotta do what we gotta do, right.

Thanks for sharing such great creations and yourself with us.

Happy Holiday Hugs, Martha

Such a fabulous seasonal project, and one that would be really suitable for young girls to do as well. Your imagination is amazing Jacque.
Go to bed, go straight to bed, do NOT pass the craftroom, do NOT pickup the copics and do NOT attempt anything else in bed other than rest and sleep.
Your health is #1 so please follow your Dr's advice and get better soon.

I hope that you start to feel better is no fun to be on bedrest. I absolutely love the decorated canister. I can think of some members of my family that would love to receive something like that for Christmas.

Thanks for the chance to win some goodies.

Adore all your creations and this one is no exception. Now back into bed and just let me know what I can do to help in the craft room .... no you don't have to be there I will just mooch about and tidy up myself .... what's that I can play along with you when you get up .... yay .... now off to bed with you, snuggle up, no crafting otherwise off to hospital and if that happens no crafting for me.
Take care hugs Shirley x x
