Morning and a happy Saturday to you! I've been so busy this week, with work and then stuff in the evening that I've not been around much - I'm going to make up for it this weekend!!
My card today is for new challenges at both CES Challenges - Kolouring on Kraft - and Basic Grey Challenges - Mother's Day/Something Girlie. Well girlie I can do, but colouring on Kraft - goodness it gave me hot flushes just thinking about it ( and I have enough of those on a daily basis, thanks very much!). Still, that's why they call these things Challenges so I had a go and here is my first ever card, and do you know, I'm quite pleased! Just goes to show, that you should give these things a try!
I've used a beautiful new stamp from Crafts and Me, ( got me a few recently!!) and have coloured her with my Pro and Flexmarkers. My papers are Basic Grey, Indie Bloom - don't think I need to use too much pattern as the image is glorious all by herself! Crafty Emma's Store stocks these papers, along with some of the flowers, the Cat's Life Press Sentiment. the little wooden, patterned button, black pearl (on the sentiment) and the card blank!
I've used that new favourite corner punch again and also a Martha Stewart border loop punch which I then proceeded to cover most of it up with my image and sentiment! The organza ribbon is from my stash and looks lovely in real life, but seems to look more like a shadow in my pic!
Hope you can join in either or both of the challenges. At CES Challenges, Emma is giving one lucky winner a £10 voucher to spend in her store , and funnily enough the lovely postie has just dropped off two gorgeous new Prima pads from Emma's - Meadow Lark and Nature Garden - yum!
You can see them here along with all the other new papers and goodies Emma has in store
At Basic Grey, we're being sponsorsed by our regular fortnightly sponsor, the marvellous Simon Says Stamp, who have their usual fantastic offering of a $25 dollar voucher to spend in their online store.
Of course, both teams have made some gorgeous makes for the challenges - you can check out the CES Challenge girls' here and the Basic Grey girls here - fabulous stuff!!
I'm also entering my card into the Crafts and Me challenge which asks for Circles somewhere on your card.
Off to get dressed now - catch you later!
