December Challenge ...

Hello, can you believe that it is December already?? Our Christmas tree is decorated and our wreath is on the door here at Ribbon Girl HQ but we've done no present shopping and not a card has been written (and to tell the truth most of them haven't even been made yet!) But if your Christmas preparations are in a similar state to ours there is no need to worry because we have the perfect challenge for you:
It's a Ho Ho Ho! challenge for December, so we want to see your Christmas projects
 
As usual we have prizes from our two regular sponsors:
 
A stamp of the winners choice from our generous friends at Lili of the Valley
 
 
A £20 Gift Voucher (twenty pounds Sterling) from Ribbon Girl
 
Gift Voucher 20
******************************
Our rules are very simple - please create a new project (it doesn't have to be a card, this is a project challenge), entrants who back link to older project won't be entered into the draw for the prizes, blog about your project mentioning this challenge then use the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post to leave us a link
 
This month there will only be one challenge here on the Ribbon Girl blog so that our fabulous Design Team can have a well deserved rest with their families over the Christmas holiday so the card challenge team and colour challenge team have joined together to bring you an amazing array of inspiration plus we have some new friends joining us too!
 
We would like to Welcome Teresa Allday to our permanent design team, she has been a customer and a friend of the Ribbon Girl for a long time and we both love to see her beautiful cards that she shares on her blog, we were thrilled when she agreed to join us and can't wait to share her lovely projects on the Ribbon Girl blog
 
We also have our 2 talented Guest Designers from our recent GDT call, Liz and Franz. It is great to have you here with us girls, welcome to the team!
