Ribbon Carousel Challenge #89

Hello!! I'm so glad to be getting back in the bloggy swing of things after a brief hiatus surrounding the holidays!  Well, the holiday season is officially over, and so it's time to get back to it.  I have lots of projects lined up to share with you this week, starting first with the 89th Ribbon Carousel Challenge!  For this challenge, you'll be playing along for the chance to win 10 handmade wooden spools filled with your choice of either May Arts seam binding, ribbon, or twine!

What a LOVELY theme!  I know I've been feeling like some comfort food and peace and quiet myself lately, and this theme fits perfectly!

I wanted to try my hand at the hand-calligraphy look featured on the Chalkboard paper by We R Memory Keepers, so I stamped the "you" then using the Chalkboard paper as a guide, tried to mimic the calligraphy with my UniBall Signo white pen.  I added some We R washi tape as a subtle accent too.  (I love this collection right now and can't get enough of it, so be warned: you'll be seeing lots of it very soon! ;))

You'll definitely want to check out the Ribbon Carousel blog to see all of the other inspiration from the design team, including some new teammates (but familiar faces!).  While you're there, link up your creation for the challenge!
