Lemon/Yellow colour challenge…



Good evening crafters, I hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter weekend. The weather had been mixed here after a glorious start on Friday but today has been nice and I cleaned my conservatory. I hate doing it and keep putting it off but Keith was pottering about in the garage so I thought I’ll get it out of the way while it’s a warm day. I had hoped to get some crafting in today but for the first time this year it was really hot in the attic so I’ve left it until now and it’s cooled off a bit



There’s a new colour challenge at the Ribbon Girl and we would like to see your Yellow/Lemon projects. As always there is some fabulous inspiration from the design team so do go and have a browse at their work on the Ribbon Girl blog page. You can also find the full details for the challenge on there and how to enter


I made another one of these little baskets, they are so easy, just a 6 x 6 piece of paper scored into 9 and then cut and fold the sides up…


April - Yellow

April - Yellow 5 

 April - Yellow 3


I used some gorgeous goodies from the Ribbon Girl store to decorate my basket and you can find them all on their website

Yellow/gold glitter organza

 Darjeeling white mini blossom flowers

Lemon teeny tiny pompom trim

'Anne' antique white lace

Heart pinwheel

Pearl trim


…and, how cool is this, they now have a beautiful lace called ‘Anne’ which of course I had to use!!




Hope you like it, thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my Easter card I really do love to read them

Enjoy the rest of your Easter Monday everyone




  1. This is so pretty, and I've not tried to make one of these baskets yet. Probably a bit late for Easter this year, but will have to remember them, as they do sound easy. I also find yellow such a hard colour to use. I'm more of a pink, purple, blue kinda gal, but yellow is such a lovely colour to bring in Spring and it really does seem to cheer me up when I see the bright yellow flowers arrive. Love your basket, and that glittery bow is just stunning.
    I seem to have spent quite a lot this weekend, including some new net curtains, so I will need to clean our windows before I am willing to put them up. If you've finished your conservatory, is there any chance you'd like to pop round and do my windows too? :0)
