Great Impressions and RC Blog Hop!


The Ribbon Carousel Crewmates are teaming up with the talented designers from Great Impressions to bring you a blog hop overflowing with crafty goodness!
 
  

We got to play some super fun stamps from Great Impressions AND some ribbon and twine from the Ribbon Carousel, of course!  

 I've used Dotted Winter Tree stamp image and True Joy of the Season sentiment stamp from Great Impressions and Silk Ribbon from Ribbon Carousel
I used Pan Pastels to colour, papers from my stash, Memory box dies and a pretty stick pin.
 
 

Here’s a little about our sponsor:

Deone and her husband Ken started Great Impressions in 1984. They started their journey by doing craft shows around the country and then in the 90's decided to sell wholesale. After that they decided to start selling in small retail stores and the original "Stamp of the Month" was born. The next step was opening an online website so that purchasing Great Impressions stamps would be even easier which is where the company is today. We hope that you will visit our website and our blog where we feature a new DT project each day and have a monthly challenge.

Now, lets talk prizes!   

Hop along with us today and leave some blog love for our Ribbon Carousel Crewmates and the The Great Impressions DT 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 Great Impressions prize is a $25 Gift Certificate, and the RC prize is a $25 Gift Certificate to the RC store

Ready to Hop?!

I think that Great Impressions sentiment stamp is one of the best I've ever seen. I love the trees, too. There's just something strong and peaceful about a tree.
