Ribbons Galore !!

Thank you all so much for joining in with our Anniversary Dare - it was wonderful to see all your cards and have so many people celebrate with us.
We've another special dare this week. Bea from Ribbon Oasis is sponsoring a challenge to use her fabbylicious range of Christmassy ribbons on our cards. So Lucky Us - we all received an envelope full of ribbons to play with and below you'll find the cards we've made (so far!) So this week we'd love you to join in and make Christmas cards using lots and lots of fabby, yummy ribbon - now that shouldn't be too hard, after all we all love ribbon, don't we? Don't forget that you can replenish and expand your ribbon supply easily by visiting the Ribbon Oasis website - you'll find so much of the gorgeous twirly stuff there you'll be spoilt for choice - we guarantee it!
Now then, just in case you need a bit more enticement to join in our dare:

Wrap it in Ribbon for Christmas
here's a little sweetener: Bea is giving a ribbonful prize to one lucky darer this week. All you need to do is make a be-ribboned Christmas Card especially for the DCM (no doubling up of challenges this week....), post a link to say where we can see it, or send it by email to daringcardmakers@hotmail.co.uk for the gallery and you'll be in with a chance of winning. Couldn't be easier, could it? So as promised here's what the Design Team came up with using those Ribbon Oasis goodies

Anne said...

OK- I confess...I stole this snowman idea from Kathy - right down to the cuttle'd texture- but isn't he cute? The rest of the card/interpretation is mine- and I love the way it turned out...used Basic Grey paper, my snowflake die and punch, some rhinestones, ribbon and brads...too cute! Thanks, Kathy, for a wonderful idea!
