Before going ahead with our new challenge, we want to thank everybody who applied our DT Call, it's a rough job choosing between all of you, so we need just a few days to pay a visit to your blogs and see and read a little more about you!
Keep an eye on our blog, we'll come back with our choice very soon! 

We have another wonderful and very easy theme for you all this forthnight:

and the adorable Mary and Andrea sponsor us again:

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

and this is the fab prize you could win:
