So thats the first bit of news
 just before i get to the new challenge there is another change to tell you about 

The past few months we have been getting sooooooo many entries to each challenge which we LOVE LOVE LOVE but it has ment our DT have been having trouble getting round to comment on each entry and we feel bad about that but we all lead busy lives and sometimes there just isn't time to do everything we would like so we have decided we would need to change things a little the options were to limit the number of entries OR not routinely commenting on entries we certainly did not want to stop you all entering as we truly love to see all the beautiful entries so from now on 

We will NOT be commenting on entires BUT be assured we will still be visiting each entry when we  select our Top 3 each challenge 

We hope you understand our reason for this change and you will continue to share your beautiful creations with us 

******


Right finally we get to the new challenge !!
our theme for you this fortnight is 

For A Friend 

and we are sponsored by 
Lifelong crafters Mother and Daughter, Mary and Andrea were tired of having to buy full rolls of ribbon and lace when they only needed one metre.  Because they love ribbons and all things pretty, they decided to open their own online shop in 2010 and make small quantities of beautiful products easily available to all crafters. Mary owns the shop and runs it on a day to day basis as well as keeping the website updated while Andrea looks after the social side,  The Ribbon Girl Blog and the Design Team. They specialise in supplying small (or large) quantities of ribbon, twine, gorgeous vintage style lace and seam binding ribbon, tiny pom-pom and ric-rac trim, all sorts of buttons, fancy pins, a multitude of charms, pearl and crystal flourishes, wool felt squares, seasonal and unusual embellishments, mulberry flowers, sticky tape and accessories to card makers, crafters, scrapbookers and cake decorators. They stock only the best quality products and only offer for sale goods that they would personally buy and use themselves



with this great prize





And some inspiration from the DT
