Warm Wishes gift ensemble

It is time for another challenge at the Ribbon Carousel and this week is an easy one - Anything Goes.


This is the first week with the new team!  Be sure to pop on over to take a look.


This week, we’re sponsoring our own challenge with asampling of 5 spools filled with 25 yards of gorgeous twine in fabulousseasonal colors (just added to the store as well)!
Your creation can be anything from cards, quilts, sewn items, paper crafts, paintings! *** Be sure to have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace, thread (basically anything thatcomes on a spool). ***


I decided to get into the Christmas mode now that Halloween (and Thanksgiving here in Canada) is pretty much over.  I made a little gift package for a neighbor, paperboy, mailman, or anyone that just needs a little warm wishes.  It contains a couple of gourmet hot chocolate, mini marshmallows and gingerbread candy canes.  You could also pop in a Starbuck's Gift Card.  The pattern paper is Cosmo Cricket - Garden Variety, the stamps are from PTI and the twine is the May Arts Bittersweet Jute Twine which of course is availble at the Ribbon Carousel.
