RCC40- Sketch Time with the Craft's Meow

Hello, friends:}

This week, the Ribbon Carousel Challenge is another wonderful sketch by the fabulous Danielle Lounds.

The Craft's MeowAnd we welcome our sponsor this week, The Crafts Meow.

The Craft's Meow offers a wide variety of stamp sets designed by Nina Brackett (Nina B Designs), Jenny Suchin (Wee Memories), Michelle Bertuzzi (Jiroken), Kaitlyn Ord and Maree Truelove. There is something for everyone! Please join us on Facebook and our store blog for all the latest news, new release festivities, chances to win prizes, our monthly card sketch challenge and lots of inspiration!

The prize this week is a stamp set of your choice from The Crafts Meow.

I was lucky enough to get some of these stamps to play with this week--THANKSThe Crafts Meow. And again--I kind of changed the sketch. First, the oval is my focal stamped image. I also made the banner part of this oval--I thought the branch that the owls sit on looked like a banner (is it just me?? or do you see it too??). I added some pieces of scraps to the top left and stitched some Xs and lines for my gems. I love making sketches my own:) The papers are from Crate Paper. Where is my ribbon? Well, I used some of RCC's brown burlap twine {available HERE} for the branch. I wanted to give it texture. LOVE it! This card also fits the Simon Says Stamp challenge-Love is in the Air.
I'm giving this card to Trav:) Happy Valentine's Day, Babes!

The RCC team would love for you to join in the fun this week! Here are the details:
  • Make your NEW 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.
  • Your creation can be ANYTHING from cards, quilts, sewn items, paper crafts, paintings! ***Be sure to have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace, thread (basically anything that comes on a spool) on your creation! And be sure to follow the RCC challenge theme!
  • Load your creation up onto your blog or a public viewing forum like SplitcoastStampers, (use the keyword RCC40) with a direct link back to The RCC blog 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!
  • Come back to The RCC blog 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.
  • Be sure to come back the Friday after the challenge ends to see if YOU are a Top Spool! :D
This challenge will end on February 20th at 11:59pm EST.

I really hope you will play along! Please stop by the RCC blog for more details, more projects from the RCC DT, and to link up your creation!
