Aqua-tastic )

Hi peeps and a very happy Sunday to all xxx

I hope that you are enjoying your weekend. even if it is a rather damp and dreary one (or is that just not so sunny Chester???)

It's the third Sunday of the month and time to check out this month’s  Colour Challenge over at The Ribbon Girl Blog and what a corker it is …..

… Shades of Aqua

I love aqua and white together as it always look so clean and fresh.

And we have 2 fab prizes for you as well ….

… a gorgeous Aqua Mini Kit, plus ….

… a £10 voucher from the lovely Lisa & Laila at Lili Of The Valley

So this is my card and I used Hello Little Butterfly.  Unfortunately I cannot find my list of Copics peeps – I may have accidently chucked it whilst clearing away the card stuff so that I could sort out the jewellery bits and bobs. I’ll update if I come across it in the next few days :)

The papers are from the Bumbleberry Cottage collection by Nitwits and I think they worked really well for this challenge.

I used the following items which are all available from The Ribbon Girl -

Lace, organza spot ribbon, bakers twine, polka dot buttons

And all of it beautimous :)

It’s back again and this time there are 2 of them but one has been chopped up and re-arranged a bit.

And I made a white flower using the Spellbinders Rose Creations dies

So there we are all done.

Isn't this rain miserable :(  My poor Richard is playing in a veterans county tennis final in this horrible rain which he was thrilled about – not!!  He was hoping it might be cancelled but he got the call this morning to say it wasn’t. So I am staying in the warm and dry and hoping to get some crafting done and also pack away all the bling etc from yesterday’s class, which was lovely. What a nice bunch of ladies they were and we did have a laugh.

I’m off now to sort out all the odds and sods and then tonight it’s the final of The Apprentice (don’t you just love Lord Sugar of Sugar!!!) and I’ll see you in the week.

Hugs to all xxx

Beautiful card Dawny and your right aqua and white looks so refreshing. The weather here in Macclesfield is miserable and dreary too, not stopped raining all day! Hope Richard didnt get too wet!
