Charisma challenge time, peeps. and yep, we're looking for you to spill ribbon ALL OVER your creations this week. our Charisma Galz have really gone over the top with their prodgies, so you REALLY need to CLICK HERE to see what i'm talking about. the more ribbon, the better. i have been perusing some of my older magazines while on lunch break this week, and i was totally inspired by one of the articles which featured GREY as the new black, so this little prodgy was born:

i'm quite diggin' the colour combination, although it's not one i would have chosen AT ALL were i not inspired to step outside my comfort zone by this article and our challenge. some gorje AC swiss dot ribbons that coordinate perfectly (13 pieces of the good stuff), a Glitter Cut from Crate Paper, a journaling spot from Elle's Studio, a resin flower from Making Memories, paper die cut with a Nestie, thrown down on a Recollections card and HELLOOOO Unkie Bob.

need more inspiration? JUST ONE CLICK and you'll see how our Charisma Galz rocked this. it's amazing how much you can DO with some ribbon and glue.

prizes? yep, and a special one up for grabs this week for the person who uses the MOST ribbon on their project. (leave a number beside your name in Mr. Linky to let us know how many pieces you've rescued from your stash)...

here's what our fabby sponsors are offering up:

a £10 voucher to

HiFi Tower is offering up this awesome neon magnifying lamp designed espesh for crafters:

seriously -COOL. i'd be lost without a good lamp for my workspace, and this one looks out of this world. and there you have it, kids. join us and BRING ON THE RIBBON. yes, you can enter a project that simply HAS ribbon on it, but what kind of lame challenge would that be, right? throw down the gauntlet and show us creative uses for ribbon, or use gobs of the stuff, and wow us. can't wait to see what you're gonna do........

and i've played along at:

PolkaDoodles - they want Polka Dots or Stripes or BOTH (check!)
Crafts & Me - their theme is "Things with Wings"
Crafty Creations - they're looking for STRIPES (and i certainly made some!)

and that's all she wrote for now... bring on the weekend!
