BasicGrey Challenge

Good morning !

I am hoping that this post is going to work because for the past two days, it has been very hit and miss as to whether I can access anyone's blog let alone my own !! I have a window that keeps popping up saying "Internet Explorer cannot access.......operation aborted". Is anyone else having this problem ? I have read somewhere that there are a lot of problems going on and this is driving me mad !! I am sure that it isn't just my PC. I look forward to hearing from you on this.

Back to the BasicGrey Challenge Blog. This week the challenge is to Doodle ! We want to see as many doodles as you can muster on one creation !! Don't forget that your creation must contain at least one BasicGrey product.

This is the card I made.

My doodles are the white stitching, the black stitching and the buttons which I "made".

The base card is cream Bazzill.

The patterned papers are all BasicGrey Lime Rickey - wow, such a bright, zesty pad, I love it !

The image is Homegrown "Little Artist" from Funky Kits which I have coloured with distress inks. The sentiment is from Funky Kits too.

I made the brads from a hole punch and glossy accents.

The ribbons are from my stash.

The DT's creations are amazing yet again this week, hop over and go and have a look.

Don't forget that this is the last week for BasicGrey Challenges. We shall be closing down for a little while while Martine works her magic and gives us a make over and we, the DT, go and glam ourselves up for the big relaunch ! We will keep you posted with news of when we will be back but rest assured - WE WILL BE BACK !!

Have a great Saturday and if I can access any blogs, I will come and visit to see your doodles !

See you back here tomorrow (fingers and toes crossed) for Colour Create.
