June Any Image Challenge ...

Hi, and welcome to our 'Any Image' challenge. We don't have a theme, nor do we specify a long list of requirements to join in - just create a new project (any kind of project) that has an image on it, blog about it and use the inLinkz button at the bottom of the post to link up. It's really that simple ... and we have 3 lovely prizes for our randomly drawn winners. This challenge will end on Saturday 2nd July at 9pm UK time

Our lovely friends at Lili Of The Valley and Marianne Designs have donated lovely prizes and there is a voucher towards a sending spree for our own Ribbon Girl shop too

First prize:  £10 voucher for LOTV

Second prize:  £10 voucher for The Ribbon Girl

Third prize:  from Marianne Designs
