Today is a SPECIAL day for the Ribbon Carousel!!! Today marks the first birthday of the RC! HOOOOOOOORAY! Happy birthday, Ribbon Carousel! 

To be honest--I love the RC!!! And the team! It's an honor to be on this adventure with Corinna and the Ribbon Carousel. I have an addiction to ribbons and papers....and the RC is the perfect place to get these supplies! 

When we were asked to make a birthday card for Corinna/RC, I knew I had to make something extra special. Corinna fact: she loooooooooooooves coffee (a Keurig to be exact). So my card had to include something about coffee. Savannah fact: I do not like coffee! So this sentiment threw me for a loop--how do I spell "a latte"??? With an apostrophe? Without? With the A? Without? I finally broke down and wrote the question on Facebook asking Corinna for help! I knew she would know the answer!!! **So if this sentiment is not correct, I can blame it on my lack of knowledge for the drink! LOL! 

I used some dark brown paper along with my FAVORITE chevron ribbon {available HERE from the Ribbon Carousel shop}. I also used lots of different stamps from Paper Smooches, including a sentiment from Hubby and Wifey and Word Salad, the candle from Sugar Rush, and the cup/foam from Hot Concotions. LOVE how this turned out! It's perfect for Corinna:) 
**Sorry about the photos--that dark brown paper is SUPER hard to photograph! 
And...I'm A LATTE late in sending out this card--SUPER SORRY, Corinna:) You should get this soon! 
That's it for me today....but before I go....a birthday wish for the Ribbon Carousel and Corinna: Happy birthday, friend! I hope that you celebrate BIG and enjoy this special day! Here's to many more birthdays and lots more adventures....and ribbons and paper pads:) Psalm 118:24

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop by the rest of the RC challenge team's blogs--they've also created something fun for this birthday hop! 
Thanks again! Be blessed:}

Corinna McGregor Barth said...

Oh Savannah, I am so blessed to know you, to have met you, and to have you as a great friend who has been with me from the start! To think I found your artwork in a CARDS magazine and thought, "she's probably going to say No, but might as well try." That was God working in his mysterious ways my friend! I love ya girl and am so glad that you are the conscious of our crazy crew...and a wonderful woman that I get to call friend! Thanks Sav!
