Double challenge day - CES and Basic Grey

Hello everyone - roll out the bunting and flags - it's Saturday!! And it's time for our next challenges at both CES Challenges and Basic Grey Challenges.  It's Anything Goes at Basic Grey which meant that the Banners, Bunting and Flags theme at CES was perfect for Basic Grey as long as I used BG papers - not difficult, I love them.

Of course, this little Tilda was the perfect choice for the theme!  I've coloured her with my PM's, and used Basic Grey Out of Print papers.  I used the Elegant card blank as a template to shape the bottom of the papers, and then mirrored the shape with a Nestie die to cut Tilda out.  The card blanks, BG papers, Daisies, leaves and flowers, along with the pearls and Promarkers can all be bought at Crafty Emma's store here!!

Now onto our sponsors at both challenges. 

Well, at Crafty Emma's what could be better than a £10 voucher (excluding postage) to spend in the  store, if you're the lucky winner - as you can see, there's lots to spend your pennies on!  Emma has also got loads of fabbie new paper pads in stock in the store - I'm expecting a large parcel any day now!!!

At Basic Grey, we have a regular sponsor, Simon Says Stamps, as always and you could win a $25 voucher to spend in their on-line store - again full of fabulous goodies!!


I'd also like to say hello and welcome to my new followers - "waves" - thanks so much for  being here!!  It also means that I've broken through the 300 mark for my followers, so watch this space as I have a little thank you candy which I will post shortly to show my appreciation!!
Have fun with the challenges and don't forget to check out the awesome makes of my awesome teamies at both CES and Basic Grey Challenges!!
