Basic Grey challenge No 18 - Colour Combo

I made this tonight in my new temporary craft space, the dining room, and I can tell you I don't like it one bit!!  Nothing's to hand and everything seems a mess - probably because it is! A little update and some pics of Team Baker at work decorating my room in a mo.  The Basic Grey  challenge this week (18) is to use Blue and Gold, so here is this gorgeous little Cheeky Cherry from TGF .coloured with Promarkers and layered up using BG June Bug papers.  Kept it simple because it's for a man and because the papers are very bold.


As I said, and update on my room makeover -this is Team Baker at work sanding the floor of my room today.  I got them all cracking with the promise of money - works everytime!  Emily was also about somewhere but it is such a small space we were all tripping over each other in the end!!  However, the paintwork has now been rubbed down and painted and we are now ready to paint tomorrow!! Floor is going to be varnished and stained, then  a rug or something!! Next piccie shows my non-essential items piled up in the hall, and then there's my dining room with essentials!!!  I need to sort out!!

That's a familiar site, I've still got boxes from December unpacked and I keep moving things around to get the most efficient use of space. Nearly there, you'll probably have sorted your new room before I have. Gorgeous card, love your choice of papers and fabulous image.
Thank for playing along at BG.
