Challenge #169 - Hearts and Flowers with ribbon

Good morning everybody,  I do hope you are coping with all this snow and ice and are safe and warm.

Thank you so much for all the amazing entries, and what a lot we had.  Continuing in the mood for Valentines, our challenge this week is for


This week we are sponsored by
who are offering the winner

Store Bio
We are Mother and Daughter, Mary and Andrea and have always crafted (card making, scrapbooking, cake decorating, sewing, embroidery, soft toy making etc) and as well as keeping our own blogs up to date, we enter as many challenges as we can fit in and are also proud to be on various papercrafting Design Teams.
We were frustrated that we were increasingly unable to buy very small quantities of ribbon and lace and resented having to purchase a roll of 5 metres when we only needed one metre. Because we love ribbons, lace and all things sparkly and pretty, we decided to open our own online shop and make small quantities 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 in her spare time, such as the Ribbon Girl Blog and Design Team.
We specialise in supplying small quantities of ribbon, twine, vintage style lace and seam binding ribbon, tiny pom-pom and ric-rac trim, buttons, fancy pins, 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. We stock only the best quality products such as Divine Twine, Berisford, May Arts, Zva and only offer for sale goods that we would personally buy and use ourselves.

We are really, really pleased to announce another new regular sponsor

Art Journey are generously offering a prize of a two  fabulous stamp plates

Store Bio
Art Journey is a specialist Stamp Store in  Sleen, Holland.   It is a bricks and mortar store and also offers on-line shopping.  The on-line store operates in 3 different languages and so therefore is accessible to everyone.  Service and quality are very important to Louise for her store, and from experience I know this comes in spades.
Art Journey offers a very wide range stamps, and other crafting goodies, and they have their own range of Art Journey stamps, which are just fabulous.
If you have the opportunity to visit the Store in Sleen then Louise and Liesbeth will be very happy to say Hi to you during a workshop or in the store itself.  So don't hesitate and come on over to the online store or to the store in Sleen and you will find lots of yummie stuff.

First of our we have some inspiration from our fabulous guest designer, Liesbeth of Art Journey.    Please pop along to her blog - there are some amazing pieces of work.  Liesbeth also designs for Craft Stamper.

Now some work from our wonderful design team
