Ribbon Girl colour challenge …



Good morning crafters, and it’s a glorious day today. A bit of a frosty start but the sky is lovely and blue and it feels like Spring is on the way

I pegged some washing out yesterday for the first time since October and it all dried …hooray! It’s a bit sad I know but I feel very satisfied when all my washing can be put out on the line, I hate having to do it all in the dryer and on the radiators!




It’s time for another colour challenge over at the Ribbon Girl blog

This one is easy - simply create a project using the colours of turquoise or aqua

The challenge will run for one week until Saturday 23rd February 9PM (UK time)


There’s this picture to give you some colour guidance and the design team have made some gorgeous cards so there is lot’s of lovely inspiration for you




As usual there are fabulous prizes for the randomly selected winner of the challenge:

A £10 voucher to spend in
Lili of the Valley online store where they have fabulous new stamps for Spring


…and a £10 voucher to spend in The Ribbon Girl online store which has beautiful ribbons and embellishments for every craft project







This is my interpretation, it’s not colours I’d usually use but I actually really like them

I have so many Magnolia stamps and they are sadly neglected so I thought I’d dig out a Tilda for this card…



Feb Colour Challenge



You can find all of my embellishments in The Ribbon Girl shop;


picot edge cream lace

aqua sparkle bead trim

Kort and Godt rolled paper roses

ZVA Creative flourishes


The gorgeous papers are Authentique and the sentiment is a Lili of the Valley one from the handwritten phrases set which I use a lot




I think it’s time I changed my frosty blog theme to a more cheery one if Spring is just around the corner so I’m going to try and find time to do that today  …have a lovely day everyone xx

  4. this is just so pretty Anne - Tilda looks so gorgeous xx

  5. Gorgeous card, I really love this blue/aqua colour and the inspiration photo is just stunning. I love your Tilda. The image looks familiar and I can't remember if I have her or not. I have so many stamps that some tend to shift to the bottom of the storage box underneath all my LOTV which seem to breed in the box, and my tilda's fall to the bottom. I can't remember the last time I used one, so I might have to dig deep in the box and play with them again soon.

  6. Hi Anne, I love the colours you have used for the challenge. In fact I love it all!! Hugs, Carol S.xx

  7. Gorgeous card Anne. Tilda looks fabulous and I love all the shades of aqua, and the pretty gem swirls.
