Fun Patriotic ‘Welcome Home’ Card and new Challenge over at Party Time Tuesdays Anything Goes Challenge Blog

Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Party Time Tuesdays Challenge Blog.  This is monthly Anything Goes Challenge Blog and we’d love to have you come over and join the fun.  This fun card uses some fun ribbons from the May Ribbon Club assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon

If some of you think this card looks really familiar, you are correct.  You got an accidental ‘sneak peek’ last week when I tried to schedule the post, but I guess I forgot to click the ‘done’ button.  I didn’t realize it posted until it showed up in my email feed.  That was followed by a loud exclamation of ‘Crap!’ (okay, it wasn’t crap that I said, but I’m trying to keep this PG, ya know?).  Has this ever happened to you?
If you are not a Ribbon Club member yet, JOIN TODAY and begin with this fun Patriotic themed assortment.  You’ll use this assortment all summer on loads of different projects!

I created my two-color double-loop double-layer bow with my Bow-it-All V2.0.  I’m telling you – GET THIS TOOL!!  – You won’t be sorry.  I use it on all my projects.
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:
Inspiration Destination #32 – Anything Goes
Clear it Out – Anything Goes – Design paper and mulberry paper are my stash items
I will have a tutorial for this two color bow out soon.  To view all my Bow-it-All Videos to date, please visit my YouTube Channel.

I hope you’ll head over to the Party Time Tuesdays Challenge Blog and play along with our challenge this month.  We’d love to see what you are creating.

Springtime Thinking of You Card

Hello there friends.  This weekend is garden planting time so I colored up Garden Lizzie from Whimsie Doodles to celebrate.
I decided to play along with the Whimsie Doodles challenge and this month they have a color theme.  I never would have put these colors together, but I really like it!
My bow is a double-loop double-layer bow created on my Bow-it-All V2.0 with Tangerine Delicate Stitched Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  To view all my Bow-it-All Tutorials, please visit my YouTube Channel.  I also ran a piece of Tangerine Diamond Satin diagonally across the middle.  I love the pretty sheen of that ribbon.

Bright and Bold Birthday Wishes

Hi friends.  Today I have a fun red, white and blue birthday card using fabby ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

The May Ribbon Club Assortment is a beautiful Red, White and Blue Mix, and while it’s a Patriotic theme, the ribbons can be used for so much more!  I love the bold look of red and blue together and that combo is great for many different occasions.
The May assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and trim.  Not a member yet?  Sign up today and begin with this fun assortment.  What a great way to build your ribbon stash!
I used two of the blue ribbons from the assortment on my card.  My beautiful double-loop bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  This is a must-have tool for bow makers.  You will make perfect bows every time and it’s super fast.  To take a look at all my Bow-it-All Video Tutorials, please visit my YouTube Channel.
