BasicGrey Challenges

Good morning and welcome to another BasicGrey Challenges ! I know I keep saying it but I just can't believe how quickly the time passes by, this is our last challenge for January already !!

Have you seen the sneek peeks of the new BasicGrey lines they are releasing at the CHA show next week ? Oh my goodness, I have just died and gone to Heaven !!! They are all so delish. You can see them here Now all I need is the money to buy them all !

This week our challenge is "Animals"

We have a fantastic prize generously given to us by Simon Says Stamp - loads of yummy Magnolia goodies and some gorrrrrrgeous brads to go with them !

Now, again, I apologise for the terrible photo. I've been waiting for the sun but he hasn't been around for the last week and I've struggled to get this looking decent even with my photo program so please bear with me and I am sure you can imagine what it really should look like !!!

The DP's are BasicGrey "Sugar Rush", so bright and colourful and springlike which the card is but the photo isn't !!

The image is by Joanna Sheen "Messy Rabbit" which my gorgeous friend Tara W gave to me last year and sadly, I never used him until now. He has been coloured with ProMarkers.

The ribbon and egg brad are from my stash.

The little green pearls are from Quixotic Paperie and I treated myself to a couple of the Bazzill Basics jewel templates to do the swirl which are also from Quixotic Paperie.

The prima flowers were a lovely Christmas present from my lovely friend Lorraine and the pearl brads are old Papermania ones.

The rest of the team have made some amazing cards again this week which you must go and have a look at - all so different.

I am trying to kickstart my mojo a bit and settle down and make some cards outside of DT work. I started last night but then got drawn away by Silent Witness ! I have an image half coloured and hope to finish it off today as DH is working this afternoon/night so while the cat's away.......... !!!

I think I shall enter my card in the challenge over at Quixotic Challenges as their challenge this week is to use an old stamp and I think this one qualifies even though its a new stamp but never been used !

Don't forget to enter my BasicGrey Blog Candy. You can enter by pressing just HERE !!! I will be drawing the winner later on today but stay tuned for more delish candy !

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave.

Have a great weekend !

  5. Hi Jo, before I start, any spelling mistakes are due to the fact I´m at work with a German computer and German keyboard (Help!!)
