Congratulations gals, grab the blinkie for your sidebar from the tab "Blinkie" please ;)


As you've read from the title our new challenge is:

so lovely and simple as usual, righ?!!

and this is our lovely sponsor this week:

Lifelong crafters Mother and Daughter, Mary and Andrea were tired of having to buy full rolls of ribbon and lace when they only needed one metre.  Because they love ribbons and all things pretty, they decided to open their own online shop in 2010 and make small quantities of beautiful products easily available to all crafters. Mary owns the shop and runs it on a day to day basis as well as keeping the website updated while Andrea looks after the social side,  The Ribbon Girl Blog and the Design Team. They specialise in supplying small (or large) quantities of ribbon, twine, gorgeous vintage style lace and seam binding ribbon, tiny pom-pom and ric-rac trim, all sorts of buttons, fancy pins, a multitude of charms, pearl and crystal flourishes, wool felt squares, seasonal and unusual embellishments, mulberry flowers, sticky tape and accessories to card makers, crafters, scrapbookers and cake decorators. They stock only the best quality products and only offer for sale goods that they would personally buy and use themselves

who kindly offered this fab prize:

Thank you Mary and Andrea!

But before showing you our fab dt members' inspirations
I've to tell some news, the first one is soooo sad: our super lovely JANE had to step down from our team, she was with us since the begin and I personally want to thank her for all the time and the passion she spent for your project!
We all wish you all the best Jane and we're always here for you whenever you need ♥

But now let's talk about the good news...our new talented dt members Manuela e Nicoletta joined us last week and today we have the stunning  first works from Jennifer, Pat and Tina but we also have another great surprise...our amazing dear friend Delphine (finally,lol) accepted to join us!
So let's admire these wonderful cards from my super-talented teamies!
