Now on to:
Challenge 122

For today's challenge I'd like to see ribbons and/or bows on your Christmas card - just one will do, but it would be lovely to see more

Our first sponsor today is a new one to CHNC: Crafty Poodles, who will be giving £10 worth of goodies to the randomly chosen winner.

'For all your crafting needs. Items include, lace, flowers, ribbons, pins, fold-over elastic, fabric, buttons, charms and more!'

The second sponsor is  Delicious Doodles:

'Delicious Doodles is a young company with myself, Teri, as the Sole Trader/Designer. 

I have doodled and sketched all of my life. I started making greetings cards when my last child was born, and used my doodles on them as I couldn't find what I wanted in the usual craft places. 

I only started selling my images in the Autumn of 2009. I design and hand/mouse-draw all of the images that are sold in the Delicious Doodles Shop. Some are cutsie animals, some are sketched flowers, there are a few men's images, fairies and also some 'darker' images featuring vampires, skulls and Gothic stuff, something for everyone! '

The randomly-chosen winner will be able to choose 4 digital images.

The third sponsor is another new one to CHNC: Sir Stampalot:

'Sir Stampalot is a retail shop and online website that specialises in stamps, die cutting and paper-crafting goodies. We try to offer exceptional delivery times on your orders as well as keeping our stock fresh, new and exciting! Our dedicated team of card makers means we have a wonderful, inspirational online card gallery with many more cards still to upload! Sir Stampalot ships internationally as well as domestic so why not check us out if you haven’t already – Happy Crafting!'

This is the wonderful prize that Sir Stampalot will be giving to the randomly chosen winner:
