RRR blog hop time!!!



































                    Hey guys up for another hop?  It is just a holiday hopping week!  You should have found your way here from Leslie's blog.  If  at anytime you find yourself lost, you can always go back to the RRR blog.  Now I have always loved blues for Christmas...and paired with red?  Paired with silver?  You just can't go wrong!  This month's ribbons just rock....plain and simple. 
                    My first project is a lovely ornament with beading (was actually made for a family photo in the middle) that I layered snowflakes and the sweetest vintage pair of skates...they are old and have been on many a tree in their time.  I added Wild Orchid Craft Magnolias with vintage button centers for softness.  I topped my ribbon bows off with a vintage jingle bell and silver berries
                     My other creation is a card using the darker blues in the ribbon collection.  I used older Graphic 45 and paper from Hobby Lobby.  My postage stickers and borders are Martha Stewart.  To keep my "Postage Santa" theme going I added the cutest little mailbox charm to my ribbons along with berries and vintage white glitter stems.  Ok folks that is it for me....your next stop is back at the RRR blog.   Enjoy!  Hugs, Cherry
