August Challenge and July winners…






Good afternoon all, I have our winners to announce from the July ‘It Takes Two’ challenge and also our new challenge for August

Because we’ve just launched our first 2014 Christmas products it couldn’t really be anything other this month than a festive theme

So for August we want you to make cards for…

Christmas in August!

We’d love to see what you make with the new items but you can use any Lili of the Valley stamps, papers, toppers and sentiments on your card or project

Full details for the challenge and the linky to enter can be found on our Challenge Page at the top of the the blog and there is some seasonal inspiration too from our DT


Onto our July winners, we had a huge 125 entries which is fabulous, I’m so pleased you’re all joining in

This month 2 of our winners are email entries so if you don’t have a blog please do still play along and send us your pictures which can be added to the challenge, all the entries go into the prize draw!

1st prize is entry number 107 which is you Janet and you can choose 3 of our small rubber stamps

July challenge 1st

2nd prize is entry 124 and that’s you Claire, you won an art pad of your choice

 July challenge 2nd

3rd prize is Sammy who was entry 30 and you won a £10 voucher to spend in the Ribbon Girl online shop

 July challenge 3rd

Well done ladies, email your address details to

To make it fair for everyone it’s the luck of the draw for our prizes but we do like to look through the entries and pick our own personal favourites so I’ll announce the Top 5 winners shortly

I’m sorry we didn’t get chance to comment on all your cards this month, it’s been a hectic few weeks here getting ready for the Christmas launch. We will have a good look at them all and I’ll also choose our 4th prize winner who gets a Guest Design team spot with us for a month


Enjoy the rest of your Friday crafters, see you tomorrow for a new Sketch
