It's an Anything Goes plus Ribbon Challenge on 3 Girl Jam!

Did you hop with us yesterday for the New Ribbon Colors Blog Hop?  If you didn't, it is SO worth it.  Start at the 3 Girl Jam blog and go from there.  You'll be glad you did!

Everyone loves a challenge, right?  And the Anything Goes challenges seem to be the most popular. We've got a great one happening from now until May 9 on the  3 Girl Jam Challenge blog.  It's sponsored by Trendy Twine and  3 Girl Jam.  Trendy Twine is giving away a starter pack of twine.  3 Girl Jam is giving a $10 gift certificate to use in the store. You gotta love that!  Here's a little inspiration using both products for you...

I heat embossed the Unity stamp "Puddle Jumping" onto glossy cardstock, used a brayer with a rainbow ink pad, then wiped off the ink where the stamp was for a neat resist effect.  I made the background paper using a different Unity stamp, "Written in the Clouds".  I made a frame around the glossy resist piece using 4 brads and Limeade Trendy Twine from the Spring Mini Pack. The beautiful white ribbon is a new one, just hitting the 3 Girl Jam Store.  It's the dress white ribbon from the Navy bundle.

I have a giveaway on my blog this week because it's such a crafty, exciting week for me.  To be eligible to win the blog candy (stick pins from the Pinque Peacock, 6x6 paper pad, Close To My Heart stamp set, Twine, and some miscellaneous bling), please follow my blog, & comment on this post.  To increase your chances to win, also comment on my blog posts from Monday, April 29, Tuesday, April 30, Wednesday, May 1 (the New Color Release blog hop with 3 Girl Jam), tomorrow's post with the Mixed Up Media Blog Hop, and Saturday's post for All That Stickles using Icicle Stickles!  I'll choose the winner early next week.

Don't forget to link up your Anything Goes plus Ribbon projects with us, and of course, a little Trendy Twine would be great, too!
