BasicGrey Challenges

Good morning and welcome to BasicGrey Challenges ! This week we have a fabulously quick and easy sketch by our ultra fantastic and talented Tara G ! In fact, the sketch was so quick and easy Ms Costello managed to make 6 cards all in one night ! Check them out, they are amazing !!

The rest of the DT's cards are gorgeous too. It's amazing how we can all interpret one sketch so differently. Very inspirational.

The DP's are BasicGrey Nook and Pantry. These are gorgeous papers. Unfortunately, I was rushing to do this card and didn't realise I had covered up the panel of gorgeous fruit paper with my image ! I only noticed once I had taken the photo ! Never mind, it happens to all of us at times.

The image is of course Tilda and I bought her at the NEC. I just love this stamp.

The sentiment is a Cats Life Press stamp and I bought it from here

The ribbon is from my stash.

I'm definately going to make another card using this sketch and next time, you will be able to see the panel !

Again, sorry about the quality of the photograph. The weather here has been dreadful and so dark. We have had the lights on all the time at home and I don't know how many times we have got soaked through. Never mind, I can't complain especially when I see what those poor people in Cumbria are going through with such terrible flooding and damage to their roads and bridges.

I am going to be taking a break for the next week to look after my girls so if you come back and see the same ole card up on the screen, you now know why ! I'm not the best blogger in the World but I try and blog as much as I can.

Both girls are absolutely full of cold and poor Ski now has tonsilitis and I'm full of cold too and have a terrible cough. The lovely Lols and Sharon have given me some time off from Simon Says Challenge and Colour Create so I can concentrate on getting my girls better and also myself and then be back in the full swing of things as soon as I can.

I will be back later to post the winner of my BasicGrey Blog Candy and to also give you a new one to enter.

Take care everyone, thank you for your visit, your best wishes that you have left recently and for any new comments you leave. They mean so much to me.
