You have all probably worked out that i really enjoy our Ribbon Challenges, and that several of you were nervous that they would stop since starting our own dedicated Challenge blog here (you still have until the 24th to apply to be on the DT).
If that had happened I would not get the pleasure of giving our ribbons away and also I would have no parcels to open!!!
Todays parcel was an even bigger surprise for me, it was from our Button Challenge!!! Clare thought she had posted it, and kept looking and waiting to see her goodies appear on the blog, but nothing. BUT when she tidied her craft room she found her challenge box - ooops! I will come to Clare's defence she had been planning her wedding, not an easy task.
Clare did send us a handful of little favour bags she made to say sorry - yum yum. How on earth did you manage to print on m&m's?
What a beautiful button tiara, that's cool Clare. No buttons on Clare's own tiara she made, she used beads and wire, do show us a pic Clare, sounds wonderful.
Rather fitting Clare, it would have been our mothers birthday yesterday. Was meant to be.
The words on the back.
I do love this phrase, just so simple and perfect Clare.
And finally Clare made a button keyring.......I think it would be much better as a button Bag Charm Clare. It could then live on my camera bag!!
Jans goodies are from the Colour Create Challenge, she has used both buttons and ribbons, and I believe she asked for the Goosberry Jam Pot collection.
Really impressed with this collection Jan, simple and effective. Sometimes less is more. These butterflies are awesome.
I do think this style of card is super Jan, you never know I may have to borrow the idea and make something with our NEW Christmas ribbons.
Thank you Clare and Jan for joining our Challenges, we really hope you had fun and enjoyed playing.
I am getting really excitied.........after spending the weekend in Paris our ribbon consignment arrived in Poole at 5.30am this morning and is out for delivery today. I will be pouncing on every white van and lorry that turns into Tin Pot Lane!!!!
