Challenge #74 Lace, ribbon, twine

Morning fellow crafters and friends! I am sure hoping you are doing so much better that me today. Got the heavy winter flu on Friday and still today having fever, and on top of it it has started to snow here in Sweden again. Life is jolly, life is fun! A good thing we have our crafting to turn to right? LoL Things can only get better with a little positive energy and that we get from a new challenge, am I right or am I right? Thought so, better get started then.

Our theme for this wonderful week's challenge is "Ribbon / lace / twine". Either one, or two or all three if you manage that is fine by us, but at least one to enter the challenge. I bet this will be a challenge with many enties. And I love that and so does my my teamies, and they for sure has done some really smashing work for this challenge. Wait till you see what they have created for your inspiration!

I will also tell you about our sponsors for this week's challenge before we move on to the winner's from last week. This week's sponsors are

This wonderful bunch of "Strawberry ribbons" for one lucky winner from Crafty Ribbons

Crafty Ribbons is a ribbon emporium, we are passionate about ribbons and want to share our fantastic ribbons with others. Our range of Christmas ribbons is second to none.
Remember when we only used ribbons to add a bow to our hair, or tie up a birthday parcel? Ribbons are now a "must-have" for all types of craft. Whether your project requires satin, sheer, silk, grosgrain, gingham or polka dot ribbon we have them all! Lots and lots of different colours in a range of widths.
Need a little bit of ribbon inspiration - then have a look at our projects on our blog,or visit our Inspiration blog,or maybe join in with us at our Challenge blog. Go on, have a look... It's worth it !
