Ribbon Carousel and Paper Smooches SPARKS challenges (Anything Goes)

Hello, friends:}
Have you played along with this month's Ribbon Carousel challenge yet??? The RCC is now doing monthly challenges with a huge prize at the end for one lucky player!!! The prize::: a ribbon carousel!!!!!! This month's theme/challenge--- ANYTHING GOES

This is a super EASY challenge! If you use ribbon on your creation (twine, ribbon, thread, etc!), you can enter it in this challenge:) LOVE it! 

So... this time of year I'm super busy... and I have an idea for this challenge but was unable to finish it before the deadline (and before I fell asleep!).... soooooooooooo..... I've created the EASIEST card for today. **NOTE: I will share another project that's perfect for this time of year and for the RCC challenge SOON!

My card is actually perfect for me right now. I need to "let it go". God has asked me to let go.... and I thought I had... however, I'm clinging to "it" just as much as I was before! LOL! I tend to have "white knuckles".... but I need to take this advice and "let it go" and follow Him. **NOTE: I wanted the card to say, "Let it go & let God." but I wasn't sure that was how the saying went! 

I used basic teal cardstock with red vellum. I used the Paper Smooches Alphadot and Hullabaloo stamp sets. I added a small black floss for the string. EASY! Now if only following this advice was easy!!!! LOL! This card is also perfect for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Anything Goes challenge! I LOOOOOOOVE Anything Goes-- it makes it so easy to enter:) 
I'm not a huge fan of CAS creations (mainly because I love to add more and more and more)...
 but this card says it all! LOVE it! 
That's it for me today--but make sure you stop by the RCC blog for more details for this challenge and DT inspiration!!! And click HERE to link up your creation!

And be sure to order your own Ribbon Carousel HERE! They are selling fast--- and in January the store will be taking a small break. So get one NOW while they are only $45.00 :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

Lisa Elton said...

Love the red balloon! I think this is something we ALL need to do. Let it go and put it in God's hands. Have a great day :)

I really needed this card/message today! THANK YOU!!!!

Chris Dring said...

This is such a perfect CAS card! You are so right: it says it all! And kudos to you for stepping out of your comfort zone and making a CAS card - you rocked it!

LOVE this, and the balloon is the PERFECT symbolic image. The card actually *creates* a feeling of letting go...how cool is that?!! Glad you are following this advice - it can be so hard to let go sometimes, I know. But it is the best thing you can do for yourself :)

Love this card design!

Your card is perfection! I looooooooove it so much! The sentiment is wonderful and it would have been wonderful with 'let it go and let God' too! I think we so struggle with clinging (I know I am right now!) this is exactly what I needed to see and hear! <3
