Hooray! I have some time to share the wonderful creations from our current Ribbon Challenge # 18.
As you may know, in the past I have sometimes credited the wrong name to the work of art I have photographed. Since my little mishaps I have been extra careful and only opened one parcel at a time so not to get anything mixed up. (Sad, I used to rip open the parcels just like on my birthday it was fantastic, but I have become controlled.....not as much fun!)
Everything has been perfect for several challenges and I have been spot on (well I think so, no one has told me otherwise!). BUT and a big BUT, the challenge goodies that were sent in this time I wanted to display on our exhibtion stand in Exeter, "oh god" I will never get everything to match up.
These photos were taken 11 days ago, the cards and goodies are now tucked up on the exhibtion stand - I am working from memory only!!!!! Please forgive me if I have made any mistakes.
I am 100% positive that the first set of goodies came from Wilma - that might have something to do with the choccies, but I am not sure!
Oooooh a box! But Wilma's note said it contained "Marbles" - naah that could not be correct.....
....funny looking marbles, but they did taste good.
I love the books and albums Wilma makes me, if you come to a show you will seeing them hanging from the front of the stand - they create a lot of attention.
Not only are they decorated on the outside, but the inside is treated to Wilma's magic as well.
This red poinsettia ribbon is walking out, the west country ladies loved it, it does look stunning on Wilma's card.
You made us giggle with this one Wilma.
Wilma's last creation is HUGE. I know you can not tell from the photo but the card has "gone large" a full A4 - it is stunning.
Carol I wish I had a £1 for every time I got asked at Exeter how to make these baubles! No we sell the ribbon!! Fab.
Perfect Carol, just perfect.
This little chappie also got a lot of attention Carol, and the snowflake ribbon is going down a dream. (We do have some new delish colours, hope to get on the site soon). Great makes Carol.
A delightful stained glass effect from Cath. Cath and her mum Linda (also a ribbon challenger) came to see us in Exeter, it is always great to put a face to a name.
Cath also sent in the wicked hanging parcel. We had this on our demo table in Exeter and it was picked up an awful lot, thankfully it was put back again!!
That is my first memory batch - fingers crossed I got them correct. We have lots more Christmas card inspirations for you, so please keep popping back.
We are sponsoring two challenge blogs this week, the first is Creative Inspirations where they are looking for Christmas cards - now that should be easy.
and the second is Scrap it with a Song, this one could be a little bit harder, it is around the song "Life is a Highway'' by Rascal Flatts from the movie CARS.
If you have a moment go and join in, you could win a bundle of Crafty Ribbons ribbons!!!
