Do I LOVE Ribbon? Yes I Do!

Today I finally get to announce something I have had to keep under my hat for a little while! I am excited to say that I have been asked to be on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Design Team for their next term! I have been a RRR customer for a long time, and I am thrilled to work with Bonnie and the rest of the A-M-A-Z-I-N-G team for the next six months. You can read about everyone at the RRR blog.
Today I want to show you a little something using RRR Ribbon, Rubbernecker Stamps, and inspiration from the SCS Featured Stamper Challenge.

My background is made with the Ink, Spray and Smash Technique that I used last week as well. You always have two pieces when you make it, and this is the second background piece. I stamped Spooky Leaf Tree and the sentiment from the Fall Trilogy set from Rubbernecker Stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black and then embossed with Judikins Clear Detail Embossing Powder. I chose Michelle's fun Spooky Pumpkins card here for my inspiration and the FS Challenge at SCS today. My ribbon is Lavender Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon here. The camera lighting makes it look textured, like grosgrain, but it really is satiny smooth IRL.

I am excited to show you several Really Reasonable Ribbon projects this month, so be sure to come back on November 2nd to see one of the other things I have made with their awesome ribbon!

Yesterday my mom and I took a two hour excursion to Lincoln, where we shopped at Michael's (yep, that is the closest one to me!) and a couple of other places before enjoying a nice lunch and the long ride home. It probably wasn't the best day to choose to go to Lincoln, since there was a home football game between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Michigan State Spartans (GO HUSKERS 24-3!). But we managed to come and go inbetween the traffic of the almost 90,000 people inside the stadium. When full, the stadium becomes the third largest "city" in the state, after Omaha and Lincoln! It was a beautiful fall day!

Thanks for stopping by!
