BasicGrey Challenges - Heather's Sketch

Good morning and welcome to a very exciting fortnight for BasicGrey Challenges ! We are all excited because we have a new BasicGrey Challenges family. We now have 9 new DT members including Sandie who kindly agreed to say with us after her Guest Design slot ! Hop over to the challenge blog to see who our new DT members are !

This week, Heather has designed a gorgeous sketch for us to follow :

I'm desperately trying not to spend any money between now and the NEC show in March and like most of us, I have stamps that I have bought and never even inked up ! This little Critter from The Greeting Farm called "Tuesday" came to the top of my stamp basket and so I decided to use her. I wasn't really in a pink and girly mood anyway so she was perfect ! I actually know a couple of teenagers who which card would be perfect for ! She has been coloured with Copics and ProMarkers.

The DP's are BasicGrey "Eerie" - see, not just for Halloween !!

The ribbon is from a present I received for Christmas.

The sentiment is from a Whimsey ticket set (Christmas one !).

The flowers have been cut with a Sizzix flower die and scrunched. The brads in the centres are by BasicGrey.

Please hop over to the challenge blog and look at our new Design Team's cards, they are just gorgeous and so inspirational, I am so proud of them all (**plumps out enormous chest** !!)

We hope you can join us this fortnight. We are being sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp with a $25 shopping spree in store for the lucky winner.

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

Have a great weekend and for everyone in the UK, enjoy half term and the kiddos being at home !
