Heart 2 Heart #4 Challenge

Welcome to another week of Heart 2 Heart Challenges! Hopefully you all saw the post below about our mini challenge at Facebook and Paper Craft Planet. If not, be sure to take a look!

Before getting to our challenge, I want to thank Diane Cook again for being this week's prize sponsor. We entered everyone into the number-chooser at Random.org and our winner is Tammy.  Tammy, please email me at mbryt1@bex.net so I can get your mailing information for Diane. Congratulations!!

This week, we are focusing on ribbon (my favorite embellishment!) The challenge is to add at least 2 different ribbons on your artwork. Here are the DT's gorgeous samples:














To find out more about these cards, click the creator's name to go to their blog.

Ready to join us this week? Dig out your ribbon and play along! Then come back here and link us to the specific page that you have your artwork posted on. If you don't have a blog, you can always use the gallery at Splitcoaststampers or create a Photobucket account (must be public so we can view it). And please link direct to where your artwork is - not your blog as a whole.

** Also, please do not load your artwork into a slideshow - it's too hard for us to look it over well when choosing our top five as it keeps changing slides. Thank you! **

When you're ready, link up below. Have fun getting friendly with your ribbon stash! There's no prize up for grabs this week but you might just be chosen for our Friday Five! We'll be back this Friday with the newest Friday Five list from the sketch challenge - see you then!

Finished my second card last night and posted it on my blog (with major upload difficulties as you will see if you look at my blog). Woke up this morning and realized I had forgotten to link it here! LOL!
