I Love RRR

Good Afternoon Everyone, I hope everyone is having a GREAT Wednesday!!! Today its time for a brand new Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge!!!

The theme this week is Handwritten Sentiment or Journaling and Ribbon.

Create a card, layout, multi media piece, tag, ATC, you name it. Just be sure to follow the theme above and use ribbon/lace or trim somewhere on your project.

We are thrilled to have Sakura as our sponsor for this challenge.

For the prize this week Sakura is offering a package of 10 Moonlight Gelly Roll pens shown below to one randomly selected challenge participant. How awesome is that!!

For my creation today I made a fun Fourth of July tag using these AWESOME Gelly Roll Pens and some GORGEOUS Really Reasonable Ribbon!!! Hope you enjoy my creation today!!!

(Please feel free to click on the image for a larger view)

I created this tag using this beautiful RRR double ruffled ribbon and also using Really Reasonable Ribbon's fabulous White Satin!!! Attached to the ribbon I also used this twine to tie a bow!!! I hand wrote Happy 4th with those fun Sakura Gelly Roll Pens :))) I had a wonderful time making this creation and thought this would be perfect to attach to a fun gift for the 4th of July!! :)) We always go to some party and I always make something fun for the host :)))

The winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to Really Reasonable Ribbon . We will also be drawing a random winner from all the entries to win a set of Moonlight Gelly Roll pens from Sakura. Come play here, and let's see your handwritten creations!!!!!

I would love to have a CarlaCraft binding system to make a cookbook using my moms recipes. This would be a gift for her grandchildren. Mom passed away on December 24 2 years ago after a long battle with congestive heart failure. She loved to cook for the family and her grandchildren. Her chocolate pie was the best. I enjoy your blog very much.
