August Challenge, and July winners ….







Hey everyone, time for our new challenge and also I have the winners for July

We're midway through our 2013 Christmas collection at the moment, so for August our challenge is going to be...

Make it Festive!

It’s a nice easy one, simply use one of our Lili of the Valley Christmas images (old or new) on your card or project and then enter it via the linky or by emailing it to us


We have three prizes this month and the winners will be drawn on the 2nd of September when we announce the next challenge

The 1st prize will be your choice of 4 of our small Christmas stamps

The 2nd prize is a £10 voucher to spend in the gorgeous Ribbon Girl online shop

...and the extra prize this month is a bit of a special one. Our Kim was scheduled to be a guest designer for us and because she has now joined the team as a full time member there is a space available

If you would like to join us as a Guest DT then simply put 'GDT' after your name on your entry and we will pick a winner. You will get some stamps and papers to work with and your cards will be featured on our blog and our Facebook page

So, three smashing prizes up for grabs and a whole month to enter   …get your Christmassy thinking caps on and make us something lovely!


Onto the winners of our July ‘Pretty in Pink’ challenge and they are …




The winner of our first prize, your choice of 4 of our small girlie stamps is …


July challenge 1st


…it’s number 6 and that’s you





The second prize winner, winning a voucher to spend in The Ribbon Girl online store is …

July challenge 2nd

…it’s number 29 and that is you




Well done ladies, email  and she’ll arrange for your prizes to be sent to you

Thank you everyone for joining in, we had some beautiful cards entered this month. We’re going to look into also having a Top 3 from next month because although a random draw is the best way to make it fair for everyone we do appreciate that some of you spend a great deal of time and effort on your cards and we would like to have the chance to pick our own favourites from the entries


Thanks for stopping by, don’t forget to leave your name in the Theme Thursday draw on todays post below

See you tomorrow
