Icing The Cake

lotvsm

Happy Saturday dear friends !!! I do hope this post finds you all well.

It has been soooooo hot and humid here for a few weeks and finally last night we got some much needed rain.

Still hot but not as bad as it was.

First off I would like to let all of you know that wished Dyllon luck on his drivers test that he passed with flying colors.  We have had our Co. Fair going on this week and when he left Thursday night all by himself in the jeep I about cried watching him pull away. Oh they grow up so fast.  I asked him how it felt to drive by himself and he said really weird lol

Today I would love to show you a card  I made using Icing On The Cake from the new release at Lily Of The Valley.  There is no way I can choose a favorite for I love them all. I have used one of the Christmas Circular Sentiments also from Lily Of The Valley.

Paper Memory Box

Punches and dies from MS and Magnolia, SU

Flowers Prima

Coloring is done with Copics

Ribbon from my stash.

Wanted to show you a couple pics here of the grandkids at the fair. Nathaniel is 2 so he sure enjoyed it. I don’t think sister likes riding the little rides to much with him, but she got to ride some bigger ones later that night. Ol grandma here couldn’t stand to watch those things go over and around so didn’t get any pic’s of those lol

Really Reasonable Ribbon GDT

Hello Donalda here!

I was so honored when I was asked to be a Guest here at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I have been a big fan for a long time and am truly a Ribbon Addict lol

I have made a few projects to show you today with the Yellow Assortment pack. 

First up I have made an wooden purse for my youngest granddaughter. She is a little diva so this worked perfect for her. Here on the purse I have used some Diamond Satin Ribbon and have made a double tailed bow. I found the tutorial over at Becca's Blog and she truly is a Ribbon Queen. My papers are from BG and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Sizzix alphabet die

Here is a side view of the purse.

Next up I have made a Hair Clip, I have used the Danielle White Crochet Lace on top of the clip and adhered it with a glue gun. Next I took some Moss Satin with Grosgrain Edge Ribbon and gathered it up and layered on top of the lace.  Then I gathered up some Lemon Satin Swiss Dots and layered it on top of the Moss Ribbon. Then finally I added a bumble Bee button to the top of it.

For my last project I have made a note board for my kitchen to post some notes.

I used the Lemon Diamond Satin Ribbon to make a hanger, the yellow Flowered Ric Rac to crisscross on the notepad and I used the Yellow Gold Seam Binding to make my bow.  Fruit buttons from my stash and stamps from Magnolia.

Here is a close up of the notepad.

Thanks so much for stopping bye and seeing my projects.

And I would like to thank Bonnie so much for having me today.

Big Hugs !!
