June Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop

Hello Friends!!
I am so excited to be participating in the
Hopefully you are visiting me from Cherry's Blog.
If you are just joining the blog hop, then you will want to start at the 
Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.
That way you can see what you can win, and not miss out on any of the Design Team's fabulous creations using this month's
Really Reasonable Ribbon Assortment!!
Here is a photo of the Ribbon Assortment below!! 
Monthly Ribbon Club, Domestic
What a LOVELY Summer Mix!!  I love all the summery colors in this month's kit. 
I thought I would make a card for my bestie Ginny, she has been working so hard the past couple weeks getting things ready for her son's Eagle Scout Court of Honor and his Graduation Party that took place this past weekend.  Let me just say that EVERYTHING was perfect!!!  Everything she does is just wonderful, and I thought I would take this opportunity to let her know just how awesome she is (I did make this card before I ate the delicious oatmeal with lemon frosting in the middle cookies she made me).  Of course I am doing it in my own humorous way...otherwise she would think I was foney balony (I could of spelled that right...but it didn't look as good).  BTW...Ginny and I are Vegan...and she did give me my first bite of foney was tasty.
Here is my card.
Pin It!
  The darling little image is from the 
Stitch in Time Ephemera collection from Gecko Galz.
 I simply added the text using the program GIMP.  I couldn't pass up the "Jelly," "SEW" and the "Keep Calm and Stitch on!"  Ginny has used the "Keep Calm" phrase in many ways lately...(here she thought I didn't brain is like a sponge...then again so is my belly).  I inked all the edges with Ranger's Vintage Photo distress inks. 
I used the green and white chevron, yellow stars, white crochet lace and blue diamond ribbons from Bonnies Brazilian Summer Mix Assortment!!   I also used scor tape and candi fix it foam pads to adhere my layers and ribbons.  The fix it foam pads elevate my sweet little image.   I am a little bummed because I embossed my yellow paper, it just doesn't want to show up in the photos (you can see it in the one below though).
I also used two buttons from the  Button Totes Vacation, and tied bows from both lemon and green apple baker's twine from
 Really Reasonable Ribbon.  
I just love this month's ribbon assortment, and enjoyed working with it!!  Actually...I like all the ribbons and trims at Really Reasonable Ribbon, so don't just get the yourself to more goodies...just tell your spouses etc...that "Heather said it was okay"....I like getting thrown under the bus once in a while...keeps me on my toes!!  If they give you a really hard time...then tell them you are getting goodies for your awesome best friend for their bday (as if they will know when that

 I hope that you have been inspired to create some fabulous projects and do a little shopping and maybe get into a little harmless trouble...and remember you can always join us at the Ribbons Anonymous group...if you get caught...and we will hash out a better plan for next month.
