Happy !!!

The Craft's Meow
1st Birthday Bash !



Welcome to the joint blog hop with the designers of


and the designers from

I hope you've arrived directly from their
challenge blog because that's exactly where
you need to be if you are participating.

If not, pop back just a couple places to
and check out all the details on how you
can win some great baker's twine and a shopping spree from RibbonCarousel.com

Our designers are taking the challenge with
the girls over at RCC....


and creating something using baker's twine & ribbon.


I love the new 'Paradise' collection from Little Yellow Bicycle
and thought the colors were bright and fun.
I took this fabulous shade of seam binding from RCC
punched holes with my Japanese hole punch
{makes neater holes with no fraying}
 and wove twine in Honeydew & Pink Sorbet.
The rest of the card is layering elements from LYB.


Here is what you could win from The Twinery...


and if you play along in the challenge, you could
win a fabulous shopping spree from RCC.

I hope you'll hop along with us...you have until
Friday, March 23rd, so plenty of time!

Your next stop on the hop is the very talented

Make sure to leave a quick note and I'll cross my fingers
that YOU will be the winner of that fabulous twine!

Project Recipe:
Patterned Paper:  Paradise by Little Yellow Bicycle
Embellishments:  baker's twine from The Twinery
seam binding from RibbonCarousel.com
Clear Cut Acetate, Cardstock Stickers, Tear-Out Ticket Book
all from the Paradise Collection from Little Yellow Bicycle
