Weekend Getaway

It's another first here at the Ribbon Carousel!  We have a special surprise for you this week. We have partnered up with the amazing Market Street Stamps for a 2 day Blog Hop Extravaganza! 


For the next two days, the Market Street Stamps and Ribbon Carousel Designers will be showcasing the amazing stamps from Market Street Stamps and the beautiful ribbons from RibbonCarousel.com.  And of course, we're giving away some AMAZING prizes! 
Here are all the Blog Hop details:

What:
Market Street Stamps and Ribbon Carousel Blog Hop!
When: Tuesday, February 7 through Monday, February 13 11:59pm EST
How:  Start the blog hop at either the Market Street Stamps blog or Ribbon Carousel blog.  Visit each of the designers blogs featured on both days, Tuesday and Wednesday. When you have completed the Blog Hop, leave your name on the Inlinkz on either the Market Street Stamps Blog or the Ribbon Carousel Blog.  You have until NEXT MONDAY, February 13 at 11:59pm EST to complete the entire hop.
3 Prizes for 3 winners:  We’re giving away Two $25 Gift Certificates to the Market Street Stamps store…


And…
a newly released Ribbon Carousel!


We’ll announce the winners on both blogs on Tuesday, February 14! We hope you enjoy the hop! 



I decided to play along with the Market Street Color Challenge as well.  I used the Make a Memory stamp set to make a card for a mom.  I thought it would make a great gift card holder for a spa getaway... wonder if I should leave it out as a hint for hubby?  



The papers are Lily Bee Memorandum and of course the twine is from The Twinery.


Now be sure to pop on over to the Ribbon Carousel and play along for your chance at this week's prize!
