March 'Lovely Lili' Challenge ..... animals ....

It's Sunday again which means it's another challenge here at The Ribbon Girl and this week it is our 'Lovely Lili' LOTV challenge. We would like to see your LOTV projects with an ANIMAL theme to them please - and you just don't get any cuter than a LOTV furry creature!.  You must include a LOTV stamped image or an image from an artpad or a LOTV sentiment or LOTV paper and we are of course sponsored once again by our fabulous friends Lili Of The Valley and The Ribbon Girl who are offering one randomly chosen winner two prizes of:

LOTV stamp of your choice

and a £10 voucher towards a spending spree at The Ribbon Girl

This challenge will run for 1 week and closes at 9PM UK time on Saturday 15th March. Our usual rules apply - create a new project (please no backlinking to old projects), blog about it mentioning this challenge then leave a link using the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post. The prize will be forfeit if the winner does not claim it after 1 week of the winner being identified on this blog

We're all sending 'get well soon' wishes to the lovely Teresa who has had problems with her eyes for the past few weeks - we all hope you will soon be as good as new Teresa!
