So, the giveaway.  Can you remember this?

I had lunch with Gail last week and she gave me this all wrapped up in tissue and looking even more beautiful in real life. It really is gorgeous!

We need to be able to contact you through your comment so that we can arrange to post your prize

Colour Challenge #5

It's the 3rd Sunday of the month so time for a new Ribbon Girl colour challenge. The challenge will run for 2 weeks and the colour theme is pink, brown and cream. You can make any kind of project and as long as you stick to the colours, create a new project (please play fair) and enter a direct link to your project (on a blog or in a gallery) in the in-linkz box at the bottom of the post you'll be entered into the draw to win this lovely selection of Ribbon Girl goodies and a voucher for £10 to spend in the Lili Of The Valley online store.  There is a new release of stamps due out soon from LOTV so a voucher to spend in the store would be very welcome I'm sure :)

Some of our Design Team have joined in with the challenge and have created some beautiful projects
