Really Reasonable Blog Hop!

 Hello folks!  It is time for a blog hop with RRR!  Hope you are having fun with us today!  You should have found your way here from Deborah's beautiful blog.  If at anytime you find yourself lost just start back at the RRR blog.  




This month's ribbons are devine!  They will get you in the mood for the 4th or for any patriotic project you might have in mind.






Here are my creations....full of the old glory spirit!   Hands down my fave color combo. 






I got a little extra glitter here and there, but I kinda like the way it lightly splattered across the card! 




 I love adding crepe paper to cards....adds so much dimension.   I actually used the Authentique cover that came with this paper collection....it had a cool patchwork look to it and I could not bear to throw it away.  That is also where the "Freedom" came from.  :)


 Next up is an Easter metal sign that needed a redo.  I got it at a local thrift store.  The neat "airmail" sticker came from the Kraft Outlet.  This gingham just makes me swoon....does it you?









I also used some Wild Orchid Craft cherry blossoms  in mixed aquas/blues along with a couple of the red Cherry blossoms.




That is it for me......I am off to the races...literally.  My son is competing in Track Districts on the Oregon coast!    See you all soon! Next stop for you is back at the RRR blog.   Cherry

You deserve all of the wonderful comments. My favorite are your checkered ribbon bows. They stand out and strut their stuff. Your details are magnificent with the ruffles using crepe paper. It makes me look forward to July 4th and the fireworks.

I really like these vintage ephemera die cuts. You've used them brilliantly in some well-thought-out arrangements that hold the viewer's eye for a long time. Well-crafted indeed!
