Lemon Lime is Fine

Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon and CardMaker Summertime Blog Hop! We are teaming up today to show you some awesome Summertime designs and give you the opportunity to win some prizes!

Be sure to start at the CardMaker blog so you don't miss out on one little thing! If you arrived here from Anya's blog, you are in the right spot! If not, head back to the CardMaker blog (I am the 5th spot in the hop, so you don't have far to go!).

Today we are highlighting the July Ribbon Club kit from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Each 13th of the month it's the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog hop where we highlight the Ribbon Club! I LOVE Bonnie's choices for the July ribbon club package. If you really love ribbon and would like to have a wonderful assortment of ribbons sent to you automatically each month, just join the Really Reasonable Ribbon Club! Monthly ribbon club assortments are selected and pre-packed to reflect a specific theme, color, or holiday season. The assortments vary from month to month, but an average assortment has 5-8 different ribbon styles and consists of 10-15 yards of ribbon. You will love it! Take a peek:
My card today uses fun papers from Cosmo Cricket's DeLovely collection and a sentiment from Rubbernecker Stamps called Thinking of You. My ribbon is the gorgeous Apple Green Satin from RRR with a little Aqua Baker's Twine on top. I used my 1/4" Scor-Tape to hold down the ruched ribbon.
