Santa Is Reading His List at Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop, WINNER, and SWEET STUFF!!
A very happy Monday to everyone! I hope your weekend was a marvelous one and that now you have begun a most enjoyable and fun week. Well, we had our first snow Saturday night but nothing like those of you in the midwest. Thank heavens!!!
Welcome to the December Blog Hop at Really Reasonable Ribbon! If you have arrived here from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Ramblings site then you are at the right place and on the right track. If you have arrived here first, please start the hop at the RRR Ramblings so that you will know what terrific prizes await you this month. We were asked to use ribbons from the December Ribbon Club Assortment and they are so reminisceent of the yumminess of hot chocolate!!---you can see them in my SWEET STUFF below!!!! I wanted to use all of them BUT my brain just could not figure out how to be that creative....smile... You will find that several of the ribbons each month are unique to club members and are not available in the shop---one of the great benefits of being a member of the Ribbon Club!!
Here is the grouping of things I made using this brown colorway:
For my card I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is SU (Thanks, Claudia!!), and the DP is all from the Be Merry Collection by Kaisercraft. Most of the panels were machine stitched. I used the darling little Santa Edwin, stamped him on Cryogen White, colored him with Copics and cut him out so that he is propped up and sitting on Peppermint which was colored with Copics and covered with Glossy Accents. Edwin and Peppermint are both now available at Magnolia-licious. For the horizontal I used two ribbons from the December Ribbon Club Assortment-- 5/8" Sheer Ruffle Edge Brown and 3/8" Satin with Grosgrain Edge Brown Narrow. In addition I used Magnolia Doohickey Tilda's Lace which is not available at Diana's right now but I am sure if you contact her she will let you know the status of this cute die. To finish the front I added some Chocolate Pearls, a candy cane dangle charm, and a Christmas Wishlist die cut from Kaisercraft.
On the first panel of the inside I used a double matted Christmas Wishlist and on the second panel I used a MINI Santa Edwin for the jotting spot. This same little darling was used on a couple of MS treat boxes to hold some flowers for my SWEET STUFF which you will see below!!!
WINNER...The winner of the Tilda with Fir SWEET STUFF is......
