Blog Hop Day with TRC and RRR!!!!















Good Morning early birds!  If you have found your way here from the blog hop you should have come from Heidi's blog....are you all having fun this morning?  I am more than likely still in bed if you started this party when the rooster started crowing.   I have a fun card trio to share with you today using some of  The Rubber Cafe goodies and gorgeous ribbons from Really Reasonable ribbons .   I started out with the mini jar stamp , Fruit Medley , and they sweet small cherries set.  I created a "preserves" theme ...which was fun and easy with these stamp sets.   I used all the same papers but in diffrent ways to keep them all matching.   The beautiful Sweet Caroline papers from My Mind's Eye.  As usual some fussy cutting and making good use of some of my diecuts made these cards fun and easy.   Lots of paper layers and use of  my beloved Scrap Happy glue kept them all together.    It was than time to add bits and bobs...buttons, stitching, a handmade layered bloom....and the perfect last touch the ribbons.    I used the sweet May arts ruffled ribbons in red on all three cards and also had to have my bows....this time using the white wrinkle ribbon. .   I love love love this stuff!  It is a fun change from using seambindings and has a gorgeous almost dupioni silk type of texture.  I am going to have to have every color in this stuff!  Well hope you have enjoyed my creations!  There is soo much inspiration out there with all the blogs to visit.  Have fun and keep moving along!  Your next stop on the hop will be Misty's blog.   Happy Weekend to you all! I will be back this weekend for another hop of sorts with Purple Onion...so come back!  Hugs, cherry

EDITED TO ADD :
There will be two prizes offered on the blog hop--one will be on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog and the other one will be on The Rubber Cafe' Blog. The prizes are both an approximate value of $20 each. Comments are encouraged on all of the stops but, the prizes will be randomly selected from the two company blogs
