Hello, it's the weekend, and I must say that I had a very civilised start to mine last night! At Victoria Station they were giving away free Vodka and Cokes, so I thought it would be rude not to!! That would be great every evening on the commute home!!
Anyway, on to my cards for today and first up is my card for Basic Grey Challenges and we have a very popular theme at the moment of Autumn/Halloween!! (Looks like my image also took a trip through Victoria last night - he's definitely had one or two!)
Yep, another wonderful Oz image from Mo's Digital Pencil, told you I was loving them. You can find him here.
My Basic Grey item are these wonderful, rich autumny papers from the Indian Summer 6x6 pad. I've made another easel card, so that I could make this fab pile of leaves and hope that I've acheived the sense of him kicking happily through the pile!!
The trees and fences are Tim Holtz dies Iand think you can just see here that I've lifted a few of them off the page with acetate, as I did with Mr Scarecrow - it gives a great feel of movement in real life, if you know what I mean!
The pumpkins are an MS punch, borrowed from my matey, Lesley and I thought I'd try making a 3D one!! Doesn't quite work as it loses a bit of it's roundness but it's not stuck down so looks ok for the pic!
If you do nothing else today, go and check out the awesome makes from my teamies at Basic Grey Challenges - they are wonderful!!
Our sponsor at BG, as always, is the wonderful Simon Says Stamps, and as always, we have a fabbie $25 dollar shopping voucher (excluding P&P). Please play along with us - just don't forget to use a Basic Grey product and point it out in your post!!
On to my next DT card which is for this week's challenge over at CES Challenges which is Forever Autumn so more lovely autumnal colours and papers!
Oh and another Mo image too - she surely know how to bring these characters to life!! This time, he's an Alice Wonderland character, of course The Mad Hatter!
My papers are Bo Bunny Time Piece which I bought from Emma's Online Store. Other items from the store are the 6x6 card blanks, Promarkers and Flex Markers and Card Candy. BTW, it's only a week before Emma's baby is due - good luck, Emma and enjoy every moment!! More Tim Holtz dies - the clock and cog dies and the sentiment was a freebie with a magazine and is the perefect size to go with this cog!
Yet again, my fabbie CES teamies, have some gorgeous cards to share with you so do go take a look! Do join in with us too as you could win a fabby £10 voucher to spend in Crafty Emma's Store!!
Well, thanks for keeping with me to the end and hope you can play along with both challenges!! Why not combine the two - now why didn't I think of that!!
