Halfway Post for March Challenge #23 Ribbons & Pearls

Hi all and welcome back to the blog for our halfway inspiration post.

Now onto Challenge #23, the theme is "Ribbons and Pearls"  and the sponsor for this month is the fabulous Crafty Ribbons
Here is a little bit about them.
"If you buy any more ribbon, you will have to sell some to get the money" 
This chance remark in 1996 was the catalyst that prompted Ali to start Crafty Ribbons, which she runs together with her husband Tony. Crafty Ribbons aim is to offer ribbon lovers and crafters a wide, varied and interesting choice from some of the worlds best ribbons, at affordable prices. We also design and manufacture our own range of ribboncraft kits, including ribbon embroidery, weaving, mitred patchwork, teddy bears, and cushions.
Product ImageCrafty Ribbons operates out of its own modern warehouse building, situated on the outskirts of Blandford Forum in Dorset, England. It is an Aladdins cave of delights. We believe that down Tin Pot Lane  is probably to be found one of the finest collections of ribbons available.
Primarily we sell our ribbons from comprehensive displays, on stands at the major retail shows in the UK and France associated with hobbies and crafts, including sewing, knitting, needlecraft, embroidery, quilting, card making and scrapbooking.
So welcome to the wonderful and versatile world of ribbons -  silks, satins, sheers, ombres, wire edge and much much more - A true Ribbon Emporium.
Product Image The Crafty Ribbons lorry... probably one of the largest wrapped parcels ever. If you see us out and about, give us a wave
And the prize is a £10 voucher .
And if you don't have your own blog , don't worry ,  remember we have a Facebook Page for you to post your entry onto. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Crafting-Musketeers-Challenge-BLOG/320703981385124

Halfway Post for Challenge #22 Cute

Hi all and welcome back to the blog for our halfway inspiration post for challenge #22 "Cute" .
Before we show Team B's inspiration , sadly Cheremane has had to leave us due to work commitments , but we wish her all the best and thank you Cheremane. 
Paula Rowson is joining us , so a huge welcome to Paula.
Now onto Challenge #22 , the theme is Cute and the sponsor for this month is the fabulous Cuddly Buddly
Here is a little bit about them.

"Cuddly Buddly® is an independent online craft supplies business based in the UK. We understand how important it is to help people keep enjoying their creative hobbies and offer a wide selection of craft products from paper and string to designer digital art, ready to be delivered to you at just the click of a button.
How on earth, you may wonder did we arrive at the name 'Cuddly Buddly'. When Kim began drawing her teddy bears many of her customers commented on how they felt the little bears made you want to cuddle them. Hence the name, Cuddly Buddly - a family term of endearment we use especially towards younger members when a seriously squishy hug is being sought. Since then the name's stuck, like honey to a bear's paw!"

The prize for this challenge is a £10 Gift Voucher for the store.

And if you don't have your own blog , don't worry ,  remember we have a Facebook Page for you to post your entry onto. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Crafting-Musketeers-Challenge-BLOG/320703981385124
