Really Reasonable Ribbon April Blog Hop

Welcome to the RRR April Blog Hop.
If you arrived here from Amber’s blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the RRR Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.

This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is a VERY popular aqua and coral color assortment.  I had no idea how much people LOVE these colors together! 

I am loving the Crafty Secrets Digi Sheets from our RRR/Crafty Secrets week on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog that I used another for my card today.  If you missed our posts for the week, you can head over to the RRR Blog after the hop and check out the posts from April 3rd through the 11th.

The images on my card are from the Wedding Printable Sheet at Crafty Secrets.  You know I love to keep digital images on hand for those weeks when all my free time seems to evaporate.  

This card came together very quickly and now I have a wedding card in my stash just in case….

I made my bow using my handy Bow-it-All V2.0.  I could NOT live without this tool.  Really!  
Sometimes a simple double or triple-looped bow (or three) is all you need.

And for my headband lovers, here is my offering for this month.  You can find the tutorial for this headband HERE.
There are many times I’ve started a headband with colors or prints that I thought were questionable for a headband, but they always turn out great.  Don’t you agree?
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Your next stop is Karen’s fabulous blog.

I would love for you to leave a comment before you go.

Is Spring Finally Here???

Boy I hope so.  Finally we have a sunny day and it might even get in the lower 60’s.  Woohoo!!  It’s been a long time coming.  I can’t wait to throw open all the windows and let some warm air flow through the house.

Today I’m sharing another birthday card.  It seems like no matter how many I make, it’s never enough.  Daisies and yellow say ‘Spring’ to me, so that is my theme for today.

This card features the magnificent Shasta Daisy die and Burlap Border die, both from Cheery Lynn Designs.
The simple double-loop bow was made with Daffodil Swirl Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon using my Bow-it-All V2.0.  You can view all my Bow-it-All Tutorials on my YouTube channel.
