3 Girl JAM -- Ribbons & Buttons Blog Hop

* Welcome to the 3 Girl JAM Ribbons & Buttons Blog Hop!! *

If you've hopped over from my creative friend Diana, then you are in the right place!!  If you've just popped in to visit my blog or are reading this via email and you'd like to join the FUN , then please CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Julie's blog...  :)

Hello, my fabulous friends!!  I'm so glad you're here today, because I have such an EXCITING post!!  If you are already one of my followers, then you may know that I love, love, LOVE to help CELEBRATE my Bloggie-Land friends...  And TODAY is a great day for celebrating!!  A few weeks ago, I was blog-hopping around, and I visited my bloggie-friend, Julie over at A Little Bit of Bling...  I nearly yelled with excitement because I learned that she has just released a whole line of my very FAVORITE crinkle ribbon!!  I was SO excited that I gathered ALL the change I could find from between the sofa cushions, under the car seats, behind the washer & dryer, and inside the cookie jar and picked up the big ole pack of TWELVE ribbons (4 yards each for a total of 48 YARDS!!)...  She shipped it so fast that I had it the VERY NEXT DAY!!  Woot-woot!!  I've been creating all kinds of goodies with this ribbon since then, and I would like to give Julie AND her ribbon a GOLD STAR recommendation!!  So, when Julie asked me to participate in this hop, I was ABSOLUTELY ecstatic!!  With all of that said, I'm super excited to show you what I've created for Julie today....  So let's get to the hop!!

When I first discovered Julie's new crinkled ribbon, I was SO grateful...  So I made Julie a card to say "Thanks"....
All around Bloggie-Land, people have been sharing their adorable cards made with the owl cut the Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge, and I just couldn't resist using this fun little owl any longer...  Mine is cut at 3" (all layers)...  I used a gold shimmer cardstock for the base layer, beak, and feet since I wanted to use a few of Julie's AWESOME vintage buttons on the card too...
Aren't those the coolest???
Since the crinkle ribbon is sooooooo versatile, I decided to use the "Baby Girl" pink across the base of the card, and then I twisted the "Hot Chocolate" brown and adhered it on top of the pink...  I added a "Hot Chocolate" bow (I just LOVE how nicely this ties!!)...
I added the "Thanks" sentiment from the "Winter Wishes" Stamp Art Set by K Andrew Designs...  Isn't that just the perfect little thanks?!?!  :)

Okay...  So if you haven't had a chance to try this ribbon out yet, you're going to end up at Julie's new store -- 3 Girl JAM -- at the end of the hop!!  Be sure to check out her AMAZING introductory prices (PLUS, she's offering FREE shipping in the US!!)...  Just LOOK at all the colors:
Isn't your mouth just watering over all that ribbon???  You can get this ENTIRE set of Hand Dyed 100% Rayon Crinkle Ribbon (4 yards of EACH color for a TOTAL of 48 yards!!) for ONLY $24.99 (introductory price) PLUS FREE shipping (in the USA)!!  WOWZERS!!  She has LOTS of other combinations too -- You can try out her ribbon for just $4.99 (the BEST price I've seen ANYWHERE!!)...

I'd like to thank Julie for including me in her Ribbons & Buttons hop!! :)  I'd also like to thank  all of my FABULOUS friends and followers who take the time to hop through and help make this such a WONDERFUL hop!!  Now....   Before you leave...  What's a hop without some GOODIES???

I have a little blog candy for you!!  I will be sending a pack of 6x6 paper and 2 bundles of Julie's amazing crinkle ribbon to one fabulous winner!! :)

Thanks for the chance to win!

Becky Dunham said...

Adorable card Amy! That owl really is cute. I don't own the Critter Cartridge but my mom does, might have to borrow that :) I am a long time follower of your sweet blog.

Let me see, my favorite color of crinkle ribbon... I think it would have to be chocolate brown. My favorite color is purple, but brown goes with so many things. I can use it in the fall obviously, but also it looks great with pink or yellow or green for spring, blue for winter, anything for summer - oh yeah - brown has to be it! Thanks for the chance to win some delicious candy!

Hello my dear friend!! First off, I've missed following my friend on Sun nights but I've really, really missed just seeing your amazing creations over the last few weeks while we cleaned up from the flooding. I hope you are doing well! I'm so excited for Julie and I hope she does well with her new adventure! I was super excited when I hopped back on the computer for the first time in weeks and saw a "SHOP" button on her blog! Woo Hoo! My fav color is the cherry lipstick...so cute!! I love your darling card! It is beautiful and I'm sure Julie loves it(and I loved all the other creations I saw on my way to this hop...you are amazing)! Take care!
