Friday FREEBIE - 19

Nearly the weekend yeah!! My brain is suffering from a bit of overload this week, what with trying to work out all the technology for making the video HERE (we have had 78 views, 2 comments from America and France and 1 Youtube subscriber!!). Then the TV interview on Wednesday....oh my poor little brain.

Only one way to relax and feel better....have a play with some NEW ribbons.......

.......these NEW Animal Cuties certainly worked for me.  They are sooooo cute!

We have almost 55 NEW designs to add to the range today, photos have all been taken and uploaded to the site, we just have to give each ribbon a stock code and then press add. Simples! You will be able to see them all HERE (soon! ALL 55 DESIGNS ARE ON!) Just keep an eye out for the little red NEW sticker.

So who fancys giving a home to ummmm....sheep, lions, turtles, ladybirds, unicorns, pandas, frogs, teddies, goldfish, bees, lovebirds,...oh there are so many and in wonderful dreamy colours. We have 1mtr of all the NEW Animal Cuties Designs for this weeks Friday FREEBIE prize a whacking total of over £45.  We are happy to give this as one prize or we could split it, so 3 lucky people can all share the animals - what do you think?  Can you cope with 55+ new house guests (of the animal kind) or does 18ish sound more comfortable?

For a chance to win, leave us a comment with your views and we will pick the winner(s) on Monday.

A little bit of feedback please - Would you like us to do more video tutorials? If so, what would like us to show?  Bev has already asked for one all about the Bowdabra, Syd is going to a birthday party tomorrow and Bev brought a prezzie in to the warehouse the other day for me to wrap and work my magic on....I only tied a double bow with pink wire edge ribbon and our Hello Kitty ribbon!  (it did look really good, very girly) Please do let us know your thoughts, if you do not want to leave a comment you can always email me at

Todays Seam Binding challenge goodies are from Claire C, sadly there was no note (or I have lost it) so if I missed the finer details of Claire's work hopefully she will fill us in when she reads the post.

Claire this is amazing, I love the cracked glazed effect and the gold work - quite stunning. Did you paint those leaves? They are so lifelike.

The seam binding flowers and the plated hanging loop tone perfectly with the butterfly.

Wow! A lot of work went into this masterpiece Claire.


This is another treasure Claire. Is that a glittered bottle cap? A posh bottle cap?!

Unfortunately the carmera has not picked up the finer stamped detail on the ribbon. Claire stamped the ribbon with Black Stazon ink and it looks awesome.

Thank you Claire for sharing your talent, such superb works of art.

We all wish you luck for today - Friday the 13th you know!! We would also like to wish Lucy and her family all the very best for tomorrow.  Lucy's daughter is getting married and Lucy has been crafting away for weeks making her daughter a ring cushion (from ribbon) for her special day - Have fun.
