BasicGrey Challenges - Anything Goes and Farewell :(

Wow, those two weeks went by so quickly !  I can't believe its time for another challenge over at BasicGrey Challenges already !!

Before I tell you about our next challenge I have some sad news :(

This will be our final challenge as BasicGrey Challenges will be closing in the New Year.

Heather and I are particularly sad as we have been with BasicGrey Challenges from the very first day when Martine started the Challenge Blog for lovers of Basic Grey products everywhere.

We have worked with many DT members and Guests over the years with whom we have made lifelong friends.  It has always been a very close knit and happy team.

Thank you so much to Simon Says Stamp too who have sponsored us for many years and given you many great prizes.

So, our final challenge will be....


Just remember that you will still need to use at least one Basic Grey product !

This challenge will close on 28th December.

I just fell in love with this pillow box die when I saw it.  It's a new one from Sizzix, a Bigz L, Fancy Pillow Box.  I just love the shape of the closing flap.  There are two holes which get punched when you cut the box so you can tie it up and hold it (these are hidden by the snowflake and bells on mine).

I made a matching card to go with it.

As always, there is a list of everything I used below.

Well, I hope you can join us in our final challenge and we look forward to seeing what you make.

Thank you so much for all your support and for joining us in our challenges and I hope you continue to love Basic Grey as much as we do.

I am playing along in the following challenges :
