Saturday Challenges

Hello bloggers - I'm back today with my card for both this week's CES Challenges which is Anything But Square, and our next challenge at Basic Grey Challenge which has a theme of Stitching. 
I've had this gorgeous image from Mo Manning in my collection for a while now and was determined to make it fit for both challenges!!  Wasn't too much of a hardship - the Stitching element for Basic Grey is there with this brill Darn It digital image from Mo's Digital Pencil.
I've also used a few stitching themed embellies such as the pins, buttons, ribbon and the Tim Holtz ruler tape. These were all from Crafty Emma's store as was the cork buckle slider, divine twine and the McGill Ticket Punch that I used for the, er well, tickets!!
Oh and Emma also has 25% of nearly everything in her store at the moment but only until Monday, so scoot on over there quick!! And if you're  joining in with our
Anything but Square challenge this week, as picked by our lovely Sheena, you could win a £10 voucher to spend in the store!!

For our Basic Grey Challenge, I've used Marrakesh 6x6 papers, and also the Basics Kraft and Manilla 6x6 pads.  Don't forget to let us know what Basic Grey items your're using if you play along with us at BG!
We're being sponsored at BG by our regular Sponsor, Simon Says Stamps, and a $25 voucher to spend with them!! 

Simon Says Stamp $25 Credit Voucher

All my gorgeous teamies on both challenges have made some wonderful cards, as always so hope you get a little time to check them out. 

I'm off out for a day at matey Lesley's, to have a drool at all the goodies she bought in her recent trip to the US. 
OOh and just must tell you about the FANTASTIC service that I received from Letraset!!  I ordered one of their Tria sets last Friday as they had a secret sale of 65% off,  so £14 for a set  of 12 of the three tipped markers instead of £40!  Bought one set then had to go back and get some more!!! Long story short, one of the paypals didn't complete but a lovely lady called Michelle at Letraset sorted it and called me back three times to let me know what was going on!!  They sorted it out so quickly and so cheerfully - so thank you Michelle and Letraset!!

Happy Saturday!!

Hiya Jooly! Wow, this is fab! I saw it on CES at the weekend but only just got the chance to pop by and tell you how much I like it....apart from the brill image and colouring (of course), I love that little To Do list and the tape and tickets, just perfect alongside the Mo image. Just had a look at all your recent cards too - lovely lovely work. I'm not going to risk trying to comment on them individually (blooming Blogger is not playing nice) but it's been great to catch up with what you've been making. Keep it up. CoB
