Another Blog Challenge!

Happy Friday!
How is everyone today?  I hope you've all had a nice week. It's gone a little too quickly for my liking, but hey, there you go!
I had a lovely day yesterday with a friend.  We did Coffee and Crafts, with cake in there too (Yum). Although we chatted more than crafted, we did do a little creating.   I  managed to finish my latest Blog challenge entry, yes another one.  I'm really enjoying doing them, you could say I'm hooked.
This one is for Colour Challenge #16  pink, brown and cream, over at The Ribbon Girl  It's the first time I've entered one of their challenges. When I spotted it I had to give it a go as I love this colour combination, I think it always looks very feminine.  I wanted  a real girly look, with a bit of a shabby chic feel.  This is what I came up with .......

Have a lovely weekend, hope you're all doing something nice. I'm going to enjoy my last couple of days as a '40something', because, Monday is the BIG day (oh no!!!)

Bye for now


  1. I really like this one Linda - very classy!
    The colour combination is perfect!

  2. You've really captured the feminine shabby chic look here Linda. I love the cluster of flowers and the way the flourish appears to come from behind the corset panel. I'm heading for that big birthday in a couple of months too... it's just a number! Vicky x

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment Vicky. Really not looking forward to Monday at all. I know it's only a number, it's just that it's a big one ! Hope you have a fantastic day when it comes around. x

  3. First of all - I hope you have a great day on Monday! What a lovely card Linda - I just love the corset!! and the rosette - thanks for joining in with the Ribbon Girl colour challenge. Mary G x
