New Year, New Beginnings and a Blog Hop!!

Happy Thursday morning to you lovely peeps!
Time once again for a new challenge at Crafty Ribbons.
Thanks for all your fabulous creations on our last challenge, you really are a crafty lot aren't you?
Please stop by the Crafty Ribbons Challenge blog and see if you were one of our handpicked top 3 or our Random Winner!
Can you believe Christmas is over and we are into January??  Me neither. 

However, as we are now into January that means it’s time for the sales and Crafty Ribbons started their mega sale on the 3rd January where there are lots of fabulous ribbons at fantastic prices so to celebrate we’re having a blog hop with lots of prizes available.
This is the prize for the main blog hop winner:

Just think how many gorgeous ribbons you can buy with that, especially whilst the sale is on!!!
Of course, we also have our new challenge and this time,Gina is hosting.....
...And here is the prize for the challenge winner:
 We'll draw a random winner for both the blog hop and challenge and  we’ll have the top 3 as usual. You can get all the details and lots more ideas from the Design Team over at the main site.
Here's what I made:
I have used a Whiff of Joy stamp called Willow Holding Baby which you can buy here.
See that gorgeous ribbon down the left hand side - well that's one of the new range of ribbons that will be available very soon at Crafty Ribbons.
The image is coloured with my Flexmarkers.  These pens are just fabulous to work with and I absolutely love them to bits.
The flowers and pins are from my stash and the sentiment is a wooden stamp I have had for ages.
Now comes the exciting bit........
We are having a Blog Hop that will run alongside this current challenge. If you get lost along the way, just pop back to the challenge blog and you will find the full list of blogs in Hop Order.
 At each stop there'll be a word to collect and a candy draw.
I've got these gorgeous ribbons to give away

To be in with a chance of winning this you just need to leave a comment at the end of this post. Let me know what you think of my card and saying you're joining us on the blog hop... 
At each stop there will be a word which you should collect. Once you have collected all 12 words re-arrange them to make a phrase and then leave that phrase in a comment on the challenge blog (we will have comment moderation on so you won't be able to cheat!!)

So, you should have arrived here from the fabulous Pinky’s Blog My word is A. The blog hop will run until 6pm on 18th January 2012 and the winner and the winners of each of the Design Teams Candy will be announced with the start of the New Challenge on the 19th January

Your next stop is the uber talented Bonnie. If you lose your way you can go back to Crafty Ribbons Challenge to get the full list. Good luck everyone.
