A Valentine Tussie Mussie

Coffee of the Day - Highlander's Grog (Butterscotch & Hazelnut - one of hubby's faves!)

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!

Have you seen the pretty pinks in the new January Club Kit over at Really Reasonable Ribbon yet? oh gosh, I almost squealed in delight when this gorgeous pack was released! you know I am a pink lover from the word 'GO"! :)

I needed to get started right away with Valentine gifts, as this one was heading off to college with my son when he goes back for the new semester. Girlfriends (as well as friends, family, neighbors, etc.!) expect handmade presents from this mom, as any of you who craft can understand. grins! I asked my son what he wanted me to make her, and a tussie mussie was his request. no, not in those words exactly..... he IS a guy afterall!

I used several of the ribbons available in the monthly ribbon club assortment, as well as white Wild Orchid Crafts magnolias and several sizes & colors of their roses.

papers are from the Authentique Crush collection, velvet leaves are by Prima (and quite old. not sure if they still sell them or not.) lots of touches with stickles, too. pretty dies by Sizzix and SU!

btw - if you ever want to see any of my photos in more detail, just click on the desired piccy. it will take you to a new window with a larger photograph. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Don't forget to stop back by the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog in just a few day for our newest challenge. :)
