New Basic Grey Challenge and a disaster!

First the disaster - my lap top has died!!  I'm in shock as everything is on there - having to write this up at work in case I can't get on the home PC.  Luckily I had already uploaded this card onto the challenge for BG otherwise I'd be in real trouble!! 
Anyway, deep breath and carry on for now.  We have a new challenge starting today at Basic Grey Challenges after our Christmas break and we want to see Something New in your stash that you may have got for a present or a bargain in the sale, or just because you felt you deserved it!  I fall mostly into the latter category!!
My image is a gorgeous new one from Mo's Digital Pencil called Chubby Valentine - I'm sure I was the inspiration!!  Can you see what I thought were her red bloomers - should have been the tops of her chubby legs, but I think the bloomer version works!
My papers were a treat to me - the new Lucille collection from Basic Grey - they are yummy!  The card and image were cut on my new Big Shot that I got for Christmas from hubby - love it!  And there's one or two of the new Flexmarker colours in there,  particularly on the heart - Chilli Rooster and Molten Red  to name two.
We're thrilled at BG Challenges that the fabulous Simon Says Stamp are going to continue to be our sole sponsors for 2013 - thanks guys.  Which of course means that you could be the winner of a fabulous $25 dollar voucher to spend in their online store.

My teamies have made some gorgeous cards to share with you - take a peek here.  I'm hoping to go shopping for a new laptop this weekend, back allowing.  It's still causing me to walk like an old lady and can't stand up for long but it's slowly easing - thanks for all your well wishes.  Also off to celebrate my baby's 18th birthday yesterday.  Out for a family meal on Saturday night - I can't believe Emily's 18 - all my babies grown up and ready to leave the nest haha!  Doesn't look like any chance of that happening!!

Enjoy your weekend and if you don't hear from me - it's because my  world has come to an end without my trusty lappy!!

Great card, love the shape and fab image which you have coloured beautifully. I hope you get your laptop sorted. That happened to me a couple of years ago, luckily the man in the IT shop retrieved everything except my emails. I then went and bought and external hard drive, so every couple of weeks I back up to it just in case. Hugs, Claire x

Enjoy the weekend.
