Yay!! We all need ribbons!!! All the ribbons come in 5mtr bags for £1.00 but Crafty Ribbons have a special offer - pick any 5 colours and you can choose a 6th colour FREE!! So any 6 colours for £5.00, that works out at less then 17p per mtr!! And for this challenge our Design Team Choice Winner will receive not only a selection of gorgeous spotty polka dot ribbons, but also a selection of these lovely striped ribbons and some lovely buttons too!!

So??? What's the Challenge Lyn?? Well, the title sort of gives it away! We'd love to see on all your crafty makes...

Dots/Spots/Stripes and Embossing!
Little tiny dots, huge spots, small spots, straight stripes or wiggly ones, dry or heat embossing, it's up to you but we want to see all three!
Now for the rules!! (Lyn waves her swishy stick!) Your blog post must mention that you have entered The Quirky Crafts Challenge with a link back to this blog. Your link must connect to your make, not just your blog and you should leave us a comment after you have linked your entry, then we can nip over to see you so much quicker.
Also,we don't want to see something you've already entered into one of our challenges, we'd like to see something new! We love all your makes but if your entry doesn't meet the conditions of the challenge, we reserve the right to delete it from Inlinkz. If this is the case we will let you know so you can enter another project!
Don't forget, we love to see all your cards but we also accept anything crafty as long as it fits into the current challenge. That includes ATC's, Altered Art, Fat Pages, Scrap Book Pages, Magic boxes, Tags, Book Marks, anything crafty you can think of! If you're not sure how to link your project, email us and we can help! Poor cazzy isn't feeling too well, so her lovely creatation will be here a little later, meanwhile...

Here's a few makes by our Design Team to give you all some inspiration!!
