BasicGrey Challenges - A Sketch

Hellloooo ! and welcome to another BasicGrey Challenges !

Thank you to everyone who joined in our paper piecing challenge and also entered our DT call. My goodness, I don't know how we are going to make up our mind, you are all sooo talented !

Anyway, while we sit back and have a think about it we have another fantastic challenge for you. Our super, duper talented and gorgeous TaraG has drawn this terrific sketch for you this week.

Here is my interpretation which is actually exactly the same as the sketch !!

The DP's are a mixture of BasicGrey Basics Manilla and Kraft and Max and Whiskers. I just adore this turquoise colour, I think its my fave at the moment.

The image is a Gorjuss girl which has been sat in my drawer for such a long time. Like everyone else, I keep buying all these new stamps and forget about the gorgeous ones that are in my drawer and never see the light of day anymore. She has been coloured with ProMarkers.

The flowers are a mixture of Prima, Jack and Jill and ones from Hobbycraft.

The ribbon and pearl slider are from my stash.

The sentiment is by TPC Studio.

There is a fantastic prize of a $25 shopping spree from Simon Says Stamp for the lucky winner where you can buy loads and loads of amazing BasicGrey goodies !

The rest of the DT have yet again excelled themselves and their cards are to die for !

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and the sun keeps shining. While you are reading this I am hopefully away in my new caravan ! After being pestered by my DH we finally took the plunge and ditched the tent for a snug, warm caravan. We only picked it up on Thursday and are taking it for its first run out (well, with us in it anyway !!). We are only going about 15 miles up the road but it will feel like a break away !

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you leave, they always mean so much.
