Ribbon Carousel Blog Hop – Challenge 81

This month we are celebrating the Ribbon Carousel’s second anniversary! Hence this month’s challenge! What are you celebrating; birthdays, graduations, weddings, babies, anniversaries, retirement?

What is this month’s theme?


So what  prize is up for grabs? How about a Ribbon Carousel?!

Each month we are giving away a Ribbon Carousel to one of our randomly chosen challenge participants!

I chose Mother’s Day for my celebration – since it is this weekend!  I chose to do something a little clean cut – mostly using dies.  I did use a sentiment from A Muse, but the rest was just white cardstock and some patterened papers.  I like piecing these together, it’s kind of like a puzzle.  The boys liked it so much, they decided to make them too!  Of course it has a little ribbon on it – I adore the seam binding.  It always gives an elegant finish to everything.

Be sure to stop by The Ribbon Carousel blog for more inspiration and enter your own creation to win a fabulous carousel of your own!!

And check out my Stamps For Sale – I’m sure you need some of them!!



Ribbon Carousel Birthday Blog Hop!

Hey everyone! It’s our 2nd Birthday today and we are celebrating with a Blog Hop! This is no ordinary Blog Hop. Our amazing Crew has gathered up AMAZING prizes totalling over $750 just for YOU!  It’s our way of saying THANK YOU for all of your support these past two years!

I have two fantastic prizes to share with you guys!  First up, a little artwork and then PRIZES!  Remember, the more you comment, the more chances you have to win!

I made these cute cards for my niece, Kate.  I had already made a pirate version for her sister and was looking forward to some really girly ones for Kate.  It’s fun to indulge the girly side of myself making things for my nieces – the boys are not into pink all much.

I used some older papers I found in a file, JustRite monogram stamps and two kinds of fabulous May Arts ribbon to finish them off!

Now for the PRIZES!

First up is a prize from May Arts! They are giving away 3 rolls of ribbon OF YOUR CHOICE!  Who doesn’t LOVE ribbon?!?

And the second prize being given away here is a stamp set from Sin City Stamps!!  They have some gorgeous images there – really fantastic stuff!!
