Halfway Post for Challenge #24 It's A Man's World

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

Now onto Challenge #24, the theme is "It's A Man's World"  and the sponsor for this month is the fabulous JGD Crafts .
Here is a little bit about them.
"We are a friendly local business in the heart of Nottinghamshire, England. We specialise in both Card Making and Parchment craft products and tuition.
Janet Humphries (the owner) started her passion for what she does now as a hobby concentrating on mainly decoupage. After the shortage of local shops selling the goods she required, Janet then started running a business back in 2002 on a local market in Mansfield.
The business then progressed to a small shop and after a few years moved to larger premises and shortly afterwards opened a tuition centre. Local people who want to learn the art of card making and parchment craft currently use the tuition centre. The tuition centre also hosts event days for many professionals you may know i.e. Christine Coleman .
Along the way, the web site was born back in 2004 this originally serviced the UK, but has now progressed to supplying world wide as far as the USA and Australia."

The prize will be something of the sponsors choice.

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
