Surprise Birthday Blog Hop For The Ribbon Carousel!

Surprise Corinna!  Congratulations on the Ribbon Carousel's First Birthday!


This baby is on her way to you at the moment, Corinna... but I suppose I'll give you a sneak peek...


Corinna is, without a doubt, one of the most generous and sweetest people I've ever known.  Her generosity with praise and friendship is what means the most to me.  Corinna has always believed in me, and I am so thankful!  (By the way Corinna, I mean you've believed in me and what I can do... not believed in me like Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny... just thought I should clarify... I'm pretty sure I exist...)

When I'm having a self-doubting moment (which is all too often), she's always quick to jump in, like an over-eager cheerleader, with supportive words... Okay, so sometimes she sends me pictures of kittens with "good-natured" threats, but you get the idea.  ;-)

Another peek, Corinna??


Oh, man!  I always reveal too much too soon... ;-)

I used Prismacolor Pencils to colour this Gorjuss Rose and I paired her with these sweet Dolled Up papers and some of my favourite 3/4" Ivory Satin/Horizontal Stripes Ribbon.

One of the coolest things I've gotten from Corinna is the opportunity to work with such an amazing team!  They're all so talented and lovely... but BOY-OH-BOY do they crack me up!  The things these girls come out with!

Okay, here she is...  Gorjuss Rose... just like you.  :-)


I had no idea it was possible to miss people on the other side of the world... who I've never met face to face... Okay, I'm just sounding weird now...

Enjoy the hop!

  3. What a fabulous card, Danielle...awesome coloring and you are the Bow-tying Goddess...who gets her ribbon from the Ribbon Goddess...and speaking of which, her heart is going to swell when she sees this beauty! Between that and the lovely words you spoke about her, I can just see the tears renewing themselves again.
    And on another note, I have to offer up my admiration to you for your hard work, tech-y knowledge and all around talent that you possess. I hope that you give yourself credit for that because you DESERVE IT. Did you see me go caps lock on you? That means I'm SERIOUS! ♥
