Wow, did you give us some delicious projects last week. Every one of them really was yummy and thanks to everybody that took part. Our winner this week is #40 Maria Matter with this fabulous gift box.

Congrats, Maria. If you click on 'contact me' at the top, Debbie will sort your prize for you and please take your winners badge from the sidebar.

Our top 3 as chosen by the design team are:
#9 Heidy with her stunning Blueberry Girl.
#18 Lisa C with her fabulous, colourful exploding box.
#24 Davi for her use of fabric and the gorgeous jar and tags.
Well done ladies, all great projects so please take your top 3 badges.

So, onto this weeks challenge. It's an easy one for you this time, we want to see RIBBONS on your projects. Couldn't get much easier eh? Our sponsor for this week is the fantastic CRAFTY RIBBONS and on offer for the prizewinner is a selection of the gorgeous new seam binding ribbons.

These ribbons/bindings are really great and so versatile. You can use them as an ordinary ribbon, but you can also wet them and scrunch them up. When dry they are great for a distressed look. Try inking them too. This card 'Seam Binding Rose' is from the Crafty Ribbons team and is a great example of using them.

The design team used the ribbons this week too and I'd like to thank Crafty Ribbons for sending us some samples. I for one, love them. The images we used are from the gorgeous new 'Cats and Dogs' collection available from THE CRAFTY PAD STAMP DESIGNS.








The challenge will close as always, next Saturday at 8.00pm GMT.

All the links for the Design Teams blogs are in the sidebar if you'd like to go take a peek at their work.

Email entries are welcome. Email using the Contact Button and they'll be popped into the post for you and please remember to turn off your word verification if you don't mind. Thanks.

We're looking forward to seeing all your gorgeous ribbons in use.
