Thanks for Kickin' it...

My second post for today, please scroll down for my Kraft Journal Guest post.


Wow, what a fabulous weekend I had down in Seattle with The Ribbon Carousel Group.  We had 4 of us head down from Canada, a couple fly in from Florida, one from Michigan, one from Boston and finally one arrive on train from Montana!  It was amazing to meet everyone and I sure hope this becomes an annual event.  Thank you to Corinna for organizing it and Jessica Knutsen from There She Goes for putting all of up at her house!




Now not only did we have a great time, but Jessica surprised us with the newest Ba Donkey Donk stamp set because it is kind of the 'theme' RCC group (thanks to Kim O' Connell!).  I am so happy to be included in this hop and I love the new Ba Donkey Donk set!  




Are you ready for this???



Our new set is called Ba Donkey Donk, and for all you snarky, tongue in cheek stampers out there, THIS is the set for you!! With three different styles of donkey's, and 9 AMAZING sentiments to go with it...really, there ISN'T an occasion you can use these for!!

Ba Donkey Donk is a 4x6 stamp set of 12 stamps that will sell for $15!


 For my card I have used some Echo Park Boy's Life papers, some V Striped Twill and the new Cantaloupe twine from The Twinery and all of these are available at the Ribbon Carousel.  This is also for the TSG challenge for this week: Animal




Would you like to win the new Ba Donkey Donk stamp? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s, and Guest's blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go. One of the Trendsetter’s blogs (from each hop day) will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Trendsetter’s Blog Hop Challenge post. You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more you comment on the better your chances are of winning new stamps! The Blog Hop Challenges will be open until 5 PM Eastern Time Saturday February 26th, with the winner being announced during the release party chat.

Here is the list of participants in today's Blog Hop:
