Crafty Ribbons Dotty Challenge

I was a very lucky crafter and was able to join the dotty challenge from the fabulous Crafty Ribbons. I have to say that I just adore the Crafty Ribbons girls, they not only have the scrummiest ribbons around but they arrive so quickly and are so reasonably priced that I only ever buy ribbon from them now! There are hundreds of ribbons to choose from, I can only ever shop there when I have lots of crafty pennies, I know you all know what I mean lol

I have joined a few of the ribbon challenges now and I would urge any of you who love ribbon to try and get onto one of the challenges they are such fun and the girls send so much ribbon than even after you've made a few samples for them you still have loads left for yourself :o) The dotty sheer ribbon really jumped out to me cos I am a real fan of dotty stuff lol This is a little keyring/handbag charm, Lily helped me with this by picking the beads and putting the small beads on the safety pins

Hair bands and clips, the hairbands are so easy, the ribbon is just tied to a band, then I put a few gems on the ends of some of the ribbons, then little bows attached to plain clips

A wee gift tag simple made with scalloped nesties

Plain and simple card to show off the gorgeous ribbons

And lastly Lily's addition. She made the heart with her Hama beads, backed with yellow card with some flowers (can't see them in the pic) and a cute wee bee sticker, then just a bit of robbon threaded through and a bow on the bottom, she was so proud that she was entering the challenge too :o)
Thanks also to Ali for letting me steal her pics cos mine were really rubbish and Ali always takes such gorgeous pics I knew they would be fab :o)
