BasicGrey Challenges - Flower Power ! and DT Call

How are you all on this cold and frosty morning ? I'm up bright and breezy (well, not quite !) because I'm off to a course in first aid this morning at the pre-school. I wonder who will be the lucky one to receive treatment from me !!! Poor soul !!

Anyway, if you are lucky enough that you will be having a bacon roll, cuppa tea and time in your craft room why not join in with our BasicGrey Challenge of FLOWER POWER ? Easy peasy, just add flowers to your project but please remember you do have to use one item of BasicGrey ! It can be the paper or as small as a button or brad.

We had so many entries for our last challenge and so many of you want to join our DT too ! Thank you so much for all your fabulous entries and keep them coming in. The DT call does not close until the end of this next challenge which will be on Saturday 5th February. For full details, please see the BasicGrey Challenge Blog.

The DP's are BasicGrey Koishi.

The image and sentiment are the new stamps from Lili of the Valley which I just couldn't resist buying. This little beauty has been coloured with ProMarkers and a generous amount of diamond Stickles ! I'm also just loving my new nestabilities lacey circle dies too.

The flowers are new ones by Prima and I bought these from Simon Says Stamp. They just have the most enormous stock of Prima flowers I have ever seen ! The little brads in the centres are by BasicGrey and the lace is from my stash.

There is a fantastic prize of a $25 shopping spree for the lucky winner in the Simon Says Stamp Store

We also have our fabulous Guest Designer Sandie joining us for this challenge too. Both Sandies and the rest of the DT's cards are just gorgeous this week, please hop over and have a look !

Thank you so much for your visit and I hope you have a great weekend.

I am also entering my card for the Lili of the Valley Challenge. DawnyP has designed this terrific sketch (although I have replaced the square with a circle !).
