BasicGrey Challenges - More Than One Fold !

Good morning ! What a wet and miserable one it is too, just right for a day locked away in the craft room !!

Thank you to everyone who joined in with our challenge of using something recycled, it great to see many entries and such fabulous projects.

This time, our challenge is MORE THAN ONE FOLD.

As from this challenge we are inviting Guest Designers to join us for two challenges. Our Guest for the next couple of challenges is Julie. Please hop over and give her a friendly BG welcome and take a look at her amazing card.

As always, there is a super duper shopping spree of $25 from our sponsor, Simon Says Stamp !

Now, I really didn't think I was going to get anything done for this challenge, time was not on my side (when is it ?!!) and when I saw inspiration for this post-it note cover in Craft Stamper magazine, I knew it was just perfect as it fits the challenge and was quick and easy to make and I actually rather like it. What a lovely quick pressie for someone to put on their desk/craft table or for work ?

The DP's are BasicGrey "Curio", aren't they gorgeous ? This is the first time I've been brave enough to use them !

The image is a digi by Tickled Pink called "Lil Fashionette - 20's Evie". You need to be quick as I don't think Kellie is going to be selling these as digi's for much longer. If you miss the opportunity to buy them as digi's you can of course buy them in rubba !! She has of course been coloured with a mixture of ProMarkers and Copics.

The lace is from my stash. The letters are little alphabet stickers I bought from the NEC last year. The "bling" is some Prima "Say it in pearls"

I am going to enter the following challenges :

Charisma Cardz - Bling and Sparkles

The rest of the DT have made some amazing cards for your inspiration - hop over and go and see !!!

Hope you have a great day !
