Your Jubilee Colour Challenge Cards


Good Sunday Morning Ladies, 

How are you all enjoying this last weekend of May, it hardly seems possible that we are almost half way through the year!  
Are you all looking forward to the lovely long weekend next week,  do you a have Jubilee street parties?  We are having a village party next Saturday,  old fashioned games on the Bank of the Thames  in the pub garden,  then they are closing off half of the main street to have a huge long table for everyone to sit and have a 3 course lunch together.  

You have all made some lovely Challenge Projects,  so lets have a look.....


Lilian's Description:

Here is my page for this week,   

I used an old set of chocolate baroque stamps, platinum embossing powders. And a couple of peel offs. Used echo line pens to colour to colour the rose, 

Oh Lilian what an opulent, regal looking page, it reminds me of the Wall Hangings that feature in National Trust houses, it actually looks like you have used lace.  This would be an amazing journal cover Lilian,  what an incredible inspiration!! Thank you so much for taking part XXX 


Sue's Description:

Hi my lovely. Don’t fall over but here is my challenge card. I have had the papers for many years and think they may have been in a Docraft goodie bag? 
Very simple matt and layer bottom of the card then acetate strips on the back of the balloon (Crafters companion?) and fussy cut teddy (holding the 1 and st in his paws) to make them stand up. The backing on the happy birthday is silver (nearly the same as platinum) but looks gold on my photo for some reason. 

Thank you so much my lovely,  I saw you starting this card while we chatted on Wednesday but had no idea it was going to be a Fancy Fold card, I love how you have created the 'Pop Ups', a real wow card. Thank you so much once again XXX 


Karen's Description:

Here’s my challenge card for Jubilee 
Inspired by Tracy Evans and coloured in with Ecoline pens

Such a lovely card Karen,  I love the colour, I do think the Ecolines are brilliant for watercolouring, they blend so smoothly. A stunning card, thank you so much for taking part my lovely XXX 


Maria's Description: 

Here is my CC, Blue birds, Red flowers and white background with little
bit of Purple on beak and feet.All coloured with Distress Inks.

Maria this is absolutely stunning,  it would make a stunning journal page or cover, the image is gorgeous and you have coloured it beautifully. 
Thank you so much for taking part XXX 


What are you all up to today?  We haven’t decided yet but if I was a betting girl I would put money on it involving gardening!!!  There is actually a village plant & Bake sale today so we will probably go and have a look.

Whatever you decide I hope you have a lovely day, 

Love & hugs to all of you,



  1. Morning Everyone
    What a gorgeous selection of Jubilee cards and as usual all so very different.

    Another quiet day here. Jim went to M&S on his own yesterday as I wasn't very good and so of course although with a list he arrived backwith one or two

    I'm really hoping that I can get back to normal this week. It's K&N on Tuesday and I really want to get back to CCs.

    No Sunday lunch today in the CAFE but usual snacks and drinks are available.
    Have a really good day whatever you have planned. PLEASE TAKE CARE AND STAY SAFE. Hugs on their way to you all.xxxx

  2. Lovely cards ladies I really struggled with this one as I kept swapping what I was going to do Do I use Serif and the digikit British Tea Party? Do I make a Christmas card? Do I use die cuts?
    We have a bowling match this afternoon I hope it stays dry
    Your village jubilee celebrations sound fantastic-I’m jealous!
    We hope to go to a couple of places on the Thursday and Friday but that’s all
    Take care everyone xx

  3. Hi Sandra and all in the Cafe today. I love Marias CA poppies picture in particular that you shared yesterday , so much detail and also think your card today is a stunner Maria, the colouring is wonderful. Hope you are having a lovely time xx
    Sandra, thank you for sharing all of the beautiful challenge cards. Enjoy gardening/supervising and I hope you get some bargains at the village sale today xx
    Cheryl, your card was a great idea for the groom xx
    We had a really lovely relaxing day yesterday fishing or in my cars taking photos. Phoebe caught 29 which was by far the most but we all enjoyed the day too and will be doing it again soon. Today will be a quiet one recovering 😀 Have s lovely time what ever you all do. Sending love and hugs. Take care. Sue xx

  4. Hi everyone
    Love all of your cards today, they’re beautiful 😍
    Not sure, what happened to mine, thought I sent them across yesterday afternoon - although I was in a rush so perhaps I forgot to hit send 🥴
    I think there is a jubilee party planned here, to be held on the little green at the end of our road. Unfortunately I’m working and Mark has a gig on Friday, so we won’t be going. Your village sounds like it has a lot planned which is lovely 😊
    Hope you’re all having a good day.
    Sending hugs to you all xxx

  5. Hello, no lovely sunshine today, but rainy and quite chilly.
    Todays cards are really great as usual, must admit found this challenge hard.
    I’ve been very lazy today, just sat watching the tennis from France.
    It’s my favourite time of the when the tennis season starts.
    Hope you all are having a lovely Sunday. Lilian.
