Ribbon Carousel and Kraftin' Kimmie Blog Hop!! Whoopee!!



Oh BOY!  Hang on to your hats!  We have a TREAT for you today!

The Kraftin' Kimmie Krafty Girls are so excited to be teaming up with the Ribbon Carousel Crewmates to bring you a blog hop that is sure to knock your socks off!  



We girls are all so excited to be joining the Ribbon Carousel folks for this fun blog hop.  I am using this awesome 2 sided satin ribbon on my card.  It's a lovely bright orange which is a perfect match for the S.U. retired Only Orange card stock.  Boy am I glad I still have some left.  On the other side, the ribbon is a delicious pink and I wanted both colours to show.  I managed to find some patterned papers that had both colours in them, so they worked great.  I matted them onto the Only Orange, then onto a Gable Green card base.  I stamped the sentiment onto some more Gable Green and added some bright orange button, which I had threaded with pink embroidery floss.  


I coloured the cute Kraftin' Kimmie image from the set 'Lulu on the Move' and I paper pieced her little dress with some more of the patterned papers.  It's hard to see but it has little yellow dots on it and is the same as the scalloped frame around the image.  This was a fun card and I can't wait to send it to a little girl.  Hope you are having fun on the blog hop.  I know we have had fun getting our cards ready for it.


Lets talk prizes!

Hop along and leave some blog love for our designers for a chance to win one of two great prizes!  The Ribbon Carousel will be giving away a $25.00 gift certificate to the store and Kraftin' Kimmie will be giving away a winner's choice of 1 stamp set or 3 individual stamps!  The winner of the carousel on the Kraftin' Kimmie blog and the winner of the Kraftin' Kimmie stamps will be announced right here on our blog!  

Ready to hop?
Have fun and see you again soon,
Diana
