Hi fellow crafters! Are you ready for a brand new monthly challenge???


This month we are looking for some Summertime Fun!


At least the northern hemisphere is in summer mode, although some areas are unseasonably cool right now. We hope our Southern hemisphere friends can play along as well and think happy summer thoughts!

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!

Just a reminder that our Ribbon Carousel Crewmates have divided up into FOUR teams.  Each week you will see fresh projects for this month’s challenge!

There are three rules to be eligible for the prize:

1.  You MUST use ribbon or twine on your creation.

2. Your project must be based on the theme of the month.

3. You must add  a NEW project  to the inlinkz below and link directly back to your project on your blog or online gallery.

To get a summer feel for my card today I went for BRIGHT!  To me that spells out summer fun.  I chose Peaceful Wildflowers from My Favorite Things.  To get a simple, clean look I inked the stamp up using makers and just layered it with a small black edge.  Then highlighted the bright colors with some washi tape from Michael’s.  Super easy and fun!

Since my youngest son wanted to stamp along with me this evening – he decided to follow the theme as well!  Using some stamps from Paper Smooches, he came up with this card – all by himself!!  (he wanted me to say that I did make the grass for him using a die from MFT.)

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

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

Enjoy!
