{RCC58} Spin My Spurs


It's time for another Ribbon Carousel Challenge and the hostest with the mostest for this week's challenge is our sweet Savannah O'Gwynn.   

Sav is challenging us to to use some metal hardware on our projects this week. Any sort of metal brad, clip, or other embellishment will do the trick!

Check out what my Crewmates have created for this week's challenge HERE on the RC blog.

I combined Sav's challenge with a sketch from My Favorite Things (MFTWSC76). You can see that sketch HERE and I think I am just under the wire for this week:)


I used one of my absolute go-to Ribbon Carousel products: JUTE TWINE! I LOVE this stuff!! Here, I've used brown and natural.


A closeup of the little metal star spurs:) And I really am not skilled with colouring fur, but with a little help from my friend Michele (she gave some tips on this post), I think I did an okay job this time! And it was really fun and easy:) And he looks like he has such a nice coat of curly bear-hair!



The MFT products I used: Fred Bear Out West, Fishtail Banner dienamic (for the sentiment anchor), and Fishtail Flags STAX dienamics (sentiment flag). 



Your creation can be anything from cards, quilts, sewn items,paper crafts, paintings! *** Be sure to have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine,lace, thread (basically anything that comes on a spool). ***
We'd love for you to join us this week! Here are the details:
  • Make your NEW creation following the ribbon carousel challenge of the week. Any submissions made prior to the challenge date will be deleted. Be sure to include some type of ribbon, twine, hemp, lace....basically, anything that comes on a spool.
  • Load your creation up onto your blog or a public viewing forum like Splitcoast Stampers, (use the keyword RCC58) with a direct link back to THIS post. Including the challenge graphic isn't a requirement, but sure is appreciated! (A participant of our very first challenge didn't link back or mention our challenge and couldn't be named Top Spool, so don't let that happen to you!)
