{TCP/iSSC} May Arts & Ribbon Carousel Blog Hop

Oh my, I think I am breaking some kind of company-challenge combination world record...and I'm throwing in a blog hop just for fun!! So I'll try to keep it straight for ya, cuz it's gonna get a little confusing. Maybe you should get a pen out and take a few notes to refer back to in case it gets too foggy to see through!
I was intentionally going to just combine my usual weekly TCP Tuesday gig with my iSpy Sketch this week, but then my good pal Corinna from the Ribbon Carousel asked me to join in on the RC's blog hop with May Arts ribbon. Oh Boy! So this card I made uses a very cheeky (monkey) image from one of my fave stamp companys The Cat's Pajamas, used in an iSSC layout, with some May Arts product, found at the Ribbon Carousel. Phew! Now, usually I am annoyed by people who combine a zillion challenges into one card...so I promise you this won't happen often, but you could look at it as me spreading my feelers all through cyberspace and trying to reach out to alot of readers (or a few;) while promoting an abundance of pretty awesome companies and challenges that I love:) So I shall look at it as the latter and not beat myself with a big stick. Agreed? Good.

Let's get on with it then. If you are here for one thing, and not another, just sit back and take it all in:) It's all good, baby!



I used the Go Bananas stamp set from The Cat's Pajamas and combined it with May Arts  Black Jute String, Red Jute Twine and Parrot Green Net Ribbon (all available at the Ribbon Carousel store)


Check out the iSSC blog for the original card, as well as the other Special Agents take on the sketch, as well as the Dancing in Pajamas blog to link up your TCPTUES208 colour challenge (RED, GOLD & LIME GREEN) card for your chance at the monthy Swanky Stamper or some weekly catcash!
