I am now going to ask you lovely bloggers for some help. Crafty Ribbons also run a daily Inspiration Blog. The design team each add a new project most days.however in recent weeks we seem to have had a decline in visitors and very few comments on the Design Teams fabulous projects so if you could find time now and again to pop over and visit that would be great the link is below. Thank You.

I hope you are all having a great week we are back to cold weather here I just hope last week wasn't our Summer!!. I'm doing the White on White card I made recently with our Craft Group ladies today so hope they enjoy making it. Hugs Carole x
