July Card Challenge ...

Hello, we hope that wherever you are in the world this July you get better weather than we are getting here in Newcastle. Oh my goodness the rain this week has been horrendous! We've never seen such flooding before and we had a nightmarish journey trying to get back home to Ribbon Girl HQ on Thursday afternoon. Luckily we weren't badly affected (other than getting very wet!) but others in our village weren't so lucky and the school where Andrea teaches was under water for a little while. They say it's been the wettest June for a hundred years and we believe them!

Before we go on to the new card challenge we have the winner of June's Colour Challenge and the top 3s

The winner was ...
That is you if your name is Sam! please email us to claim your prize

Our tops 3s for the challenge were ...


We hope you'll wear our Top 3 badge on your blogs girls, you can collect it from the sidebar
So, when it's raining outside what better way to while away a few hours than to make cards!!

Our Card Challenge today is to create a Girlie Card

Our usual rules apply - create a new card that fulfills the challenge, blog about it mentioning our challenge, then use the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post to leave us a direct link to your project. Please don't backlink (your name won't be entered into the draw for the prizes) and the challenge will close on Saturday July 14th at 9PM (UK Time)

We have our regular prize of a £10 voucher to spend in the Ribbon Girl online shop

as well as a stamp of your choice from the very generous Laila and Lisa at Lili Of The Valley
