Whimsie Doodles & Ribbon Carousel Blog Hop

Hi there! The Ribbon Carousel Crewmates are teaming up with the talented designers from Whimsie Doodles to bring you a blog hop jam packed with crafty eye candy!  
We will be helping to show off some of the amazing digi stamps AND some ribbon and twine from the Ribbon Carousel, of course!  

Here’s a little about our sponsor:


Whimsie Doodles is so excited to be blog hopping with the RC! In March of 2009 Melyssa Connolly, artist and owner, began turning her whimsical hand-drawn images into digital files for sale online. Whimsie Doodles' digital stamp line features images that range from cute little boys and girls, to punny stuff, and everything in-between. We enjoy sharing lots of samples on our company blog, where we also post challenges and tutorials.


We are huge fans of Melyssa here at the RCC! And can you guess why? Aside from the fabulous designs and amazing artwork from the Whimsie Doodles team, Melyssa is the designer of the carousel in our previous logo! 

Now, lets talk prizes!   

Hop along with us today and leave some blog love for our Ribbon Carousel Crewmates and the Whimsie Doodle designers to be eligible to win one of the 2 prizes up for grabs!  We'll select 2 random commenters from 2 randomly selected designer blog, so be sure to spread the love around!

The Whimsie Doodles prize is a $25 Gift Certificate to the Whimsie Doodles store, and the RC prize is a $25 Gift Certificate to the RC store

Here's the card I created for today's hop!



My card uses the ADORABLE Lizzie's Pumpkins! My patterned papers are from the Bo Bunny Apple Cider collection, and I used some Cotton Twill Ribbon from Ribbon Carousel; this is one of my favorite ribbons! I used the Square Lattice embossing folder from Stampin' Up to emboss the Kraft background and finished my card off with some rhinestones. That's it! 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! :)
