Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge

Morning folks....yes it's still raining here too...looks like it's going to be a wet and soggy Sunday all over the country...a great excuse to dip into your crafty supplies and join us over at The Ribbon Girls for another Colour Challenge...the colour was chosen by our lovely teamie NICOLE...
now how appropriate is that considering Aqua means WATER.
The challenge will run until 31st July 10.00PM (UK Time) and the lucky winner will have this gorgeous Aqua Mini Kit popping through their letterbox...
and will also receive a £10 voucher from the lovely girls at Lili Of The Valley
And there's more good news...we are very lucky to have the lovely and super duper talented VICKY joining The Ribbon Girls as Guest Designer...Vicky and I are old design team buddies and I have always been blown away by her beautiful and unique style...I'm sure you are already a regular visitor to Vicky's blog...if not get yourselves over HERE and feast your won't be disappointed.  And it goes without saying you need to check out  the fabulous inspiration my teamies have for you all this month.
I was smitten once again when I opened my DT parcel of goodies...I do love this colour...could be my favourite colour of the moment and you know me will be everything in AQUA for the foreseeable future. Here's what I made for the Colour Challenge and yes the cubbyhole is still knee deep in Christmas the rate I am going I will have enough cards for this coming Christmas and the next too...

Gorgeous Lace and Dewdrops available to buy from The Ribbon Girl
All this wet stuff falling from the sky has been a bit of a pain in the neck but only a tiny inconvenience compared to my traumatic experience the other night....oh yes the cubbyhole was overcome with hysteria and panic and I will be telling all tomorrow at bright and early o'clock....bring a flask and a cosy blanket...this is a real...

  16. Stunning card Kath. That aqua is gorgeous, must see if I can get a card made to enter the challenge.

    Miserable start but isn't it gorgeous now. After yesterday!! There was a strawberry fayre here yesterday and the minister was so disappointed that it had to be in the Church Hall instead of the Manse garden. Apparently he had been gardening!!! Usually his wife's job! Obviously chose the wrong day.

    Can't wait to hear about your traumatic event.

    Kat xx
