Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop

***Edited: Thanks everyone for making the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop amazing! Now for the winner of my RAK. I used Random.org and the winner is Jen from Jen's Cup of Creations. Congrats Jen, I'll be e-mailing you.***


Hi and welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop. I've had a secret for a few week's now that was "hush hush", but I am guessing you've already figured it out. I have been invited to be the August Guest Designer at RRR and a Ribbon of the Month DT member. We wanted to kick off the celebration with a blog hop and a terrific giveaway. You should have arrived from Gini Cagle's lovely blog.

If you just happened to be visiting my blog, go to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog to begin the hop. There is a wonderful prize package up for grabs and the rules of the hop.

Now for my project. I made a card using beautiful Mays Art Ribbon, available at Really Reasonable Ribbon. I can't say enough about Mays Art Ribbon, it is exactly the same on both sides so your bows turn out perfect. If you are a ribbon lover, you'll do cartwheels over it!



Close-up of my bow:



And now for a little bow lesson 101...I had no idea about this until recently and can't believe I didn't figure it out sooner. If you want your bows to have the pretty "v" ends, simply fold your ribbon in half at the end and snip them in a "v".

Here is a list of the hop order:

Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog
Iwona Palamountain
Cassi Box
Robbie Herring
Kym Weber
Mindy Baxter
Gini Cagle
Amber Goble (You Are Here!!!)
Susan Dupre
Kerri Michaud

Check out the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store to see their amazing selection! It is every ribbon addicts dream come true!

And here's a little extra surprise. Leave a comment on my blog for the chance to win a ribbon treat! I will randomly pick a winner!

Next on the hop is Susan Dupre's blog. Enjoy the hop!!!

So love the vintage vibe of the card Amber. That pin tucked into the bow is such a great touch. I gotta get me some of those.

And isn't that ribbon great. There is something about double sided ribbons that makes bow making a breeze.

Great work and welcome to the team. We are excited to have you on board.
