Hi there!...

Hey, everyone!

I wasn't going to post today but I had to play along in this week's Ribbon Carousel Challenge even though it's not techinically my 'week'!  I feel like it's been forever since I posted but enjoyed one of the best weekends ever...if I have time I'll be posting some deets on my personal blog.  Hope you all had a WONDERFUL weekend, too!

Today's RCC involves this adorable cupcake photo pictured here:

As inspiration, I drew from the colors and also the polka dots in some of the fabric 'cupcakes'.  I couldn't wait to ink up little miss Agnes Ketto from Stamping Bella- I have had her for YEARS and finally got to play w/ her.  Isn't she sweet?  I had to give her sparkly wings, of course:
We're also excited to have our friend and fellow DT mate Sparkle Smith's Company, "Sparkle Creations", sponsoring the RCC blog today!
*** Please remember that your creation must have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace (basically anything that comes on a spool).  I used some simple Swiss Dot for my card today :)

We’d love for you to participate! Here are the directions for playing along:
  1. Make your creation following the ribbon carousel challenge (sketch, inspiration, style or color) image. Be sure to include some type of ribbon, twine, hemp, lace....basically, anything that comes on a spool.
  2. Load your creation up onto your blog or a public viewing forum like Splitcoast Stampers, (use the keyword RCC4) with a direct link back to THIS post. Including the challenge graphic isn't a requirement, but sure is appreciated! A participant of our very first challenge didn't link back or mention our challenge and couldn't be named Top Spool, so don't let that happen to you!
  3. Come back to this post and link in your creation using the Inlinkz button at the bottom of this post. Your image may take a little while to pop up but don't worry it will appear shortly.On weeks when we have a sponsor, we'll use Random.org to choose the lucky prize recipient.
  4. Be sure to come back the Friday after the challenge ends on the RCC Blog to see if YOU are a Top Spool! :D

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to hang around for something SUPER yummy tomorrow...yep, I said YUMMY!
