Wow, this has been an amazing week!   We always love teaming up with our friends over at Lawn Fawn!   A big thank you to Lawn Fawn & to all of our fabulous fans!  

Of course, we couldn’t finish off this week without a proper Weekend Giveaway!   Aaaaand since I did just get in some new releases, we are having twice the fun this weekend!

First up, I have posted all of the projects from Lawn Fawn Week on one Pinterest Board.  All you have to do is repin & comment on your favorite photos to enter to win a prize of a Lawn Fawn Stamp Set of your choice!


Now for the Sneak Peek:

I always love a good sneak peek, but I especially love this one!  That’s because I am particularly excited about this upcoming season’s new collection.  I do believe we have quite a few new fan favorites coming up!  And I am not just saying that because I’m The Ribbon Lady.  😉   Hopefully, I’ll get enough goodies in to post one more before they are released.  But until then…here are two brand new winter releases for you!

Beads!!!  Now these come in a bunch more gorgeous colors.  But, for now, this is what I have to show you.  🙂


Houndstooth!   These 1.5″ pretties will be available in 5 fabulous classic & springy colors. 


Now, here’s your chance to win 1 roll from each (when available)!   Just post a comment telling me what you think of these new ribbons! 

For an extra chance to win, post your comment on our Facebook Page too.

I will announce the winners right here on Monday, December 17th.
