WITH Caring THOUGHTS

 Hello everyone,
Today I have a super sweet card made for JustRite Papercrafts using a combination of New Releases. Love the beautiful JustRite Classy Frame and Die Tag. Of course I just had to use my favorite color on this one :)

Today's post is a super short one, as I just got back from Montana, I went with my mom to a Doll Conference and we had a lot of fun there!

My JustRite Large Oval Sympathy was stamped in Memento black ink on the small tag, and I then ran some RRR through the back of it. Next I added some Sweetheart Blossoms and a Big bow created using Ribbon  from Really Reasonable Ribbon, its a Satin in white. The pearls were created using Viva Pearl pen in white. I wanted to keep this post short and sweet as its an extra post for this week :)
Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
hugs to all,
Cheryl

Polar Pals Postcard

 Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to all! Today's Post Card or Present tag was designed for I Brake for Stamps using the super cute Polar Pals stamp. I LOVE this sweet stamp, and coloring it was super fun and easy!

I stamped my Polar Pals stamp in black soot ink on this post card that was cut out of a design paper sheet. I colored up the little ones top and hat with 2 different red copics R37 & 39. The bow on the Polar Bear was done in copics G05 & YG03. Pants were done using a Brown E57, and then boots in 100 black.

I stamped I Brake for Stamps "Merry Christmas" in Black soot too! Lastly I added some stickles to the heart, and then the wings and hat on the Polar Pals image.

Ribbon is Emerald shimmer satin, from Really Reasonable Ribbon and then I added a little silver glitter stardust rhinestone.
 How super fun & Easy this was to create. Without the bow, it could be sent in the mail. However I think its perfect for a large gift for Christmas
Thank you for looking!!

RRR Blog Hop & Mini Post-it Clipboard


Welcome to "Really Reasonable Ribbon's" September Blog Hop!
 

If you arrived here from Judy's Blog  you are on the right track. If not , you will want to head back to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog that way you don't miss out on any of the FABULOUS Designs from the Design Team today!

This months ribbon assortment is absolutely DARLING!!! It's perfect not only for Halloween , but Thanksgiving(orange, and greens), and other holidays as well. The selection is one of my many favorites!!!
Ok for todays super fun project I used this
Mini Clipboard Post-it thing,I picked up years ago, and decorated it up using the ribbons in this months assortment. I also used the Mini Ric Rac that is from Really Reasonable Ribbon as well. I made a bow out of the green, and then did a strip of the purple to place under the green. They are hot glued to the metal clip part of this :)
Next I used the mini misti to stamp The Project Bin Haunt it sentiment on here. I did the Ombre Stamping using the Mini Misti and LOVE how easy it is to use. I have a video on that here.
 
The dies are oldies from CC dies.  I also added a button, and a feather to complete my project for today :)
These little clipboards are super fun to decorate! Might have to do another for this year :)
