I'm guest designing at Really Reasonable Ribbon today!

I am REALLY super excited! When I got the email from Bonnie asking me if I'd like to be a guest designer for Really Reasonable Ribbon I did a little happy dance, I really did, just ask my girls! *giggle* They think I'm a nut and yes, they definitely understand what mommy means when she talks about Design Teams.  I love RRR - they have such an incredible variety of ribbons and trims, I like to buy sample packs with a little bit of everything and I hoard WAY too much of it so I am still hanging onto pieces of my favorite stretchy ruffle gingham ribbon that is just fab. 

This month, though, when I saw the colors of the March Assortment, I knew I wanted to play with those and when they arrived, I fell in LOVE with the glitter ribbon. It comes in both the gorgeous peachy pink and the teal blue. I didn't realize it but I used the peachy pink glitter ribbon on both my cards - I guess you could say I'm obsessed with it! The patterns and texture in this ribbon assortment are incredible! I love them all and can be sure to be using them on many more projects. For today, I have 3 to share:

This card is probably my favorite. I am just in LOVE with the colors of this paper by Pink Paislee that went beautifully with this ribbon from the March Assortment pack by Really Reasonable Ribbon. And of course, I LOVE the newly released Sitting Cute stamp set by The Greeting Farm & colored her with Copics! I popped her up to appear like she's sitting on the edge of the ribbon with Helmar Zap Dots. 

I'm really excited and I have TWO more projects to share on the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog that I hope you will stop by to see! They are also having a DT call right now that ends on March 31. Be sure to check out the details while you are there!

I have a couple sneak peeks for you to entice you to visit:

Thanks for stopping by!
