New BasicGrey Challenge # 24...Gingham...2 cards to share!

It feels like forever since I've posted a card. I was camping with the family at Sandbanks Provincial Park and had a great time even though I got burnt, yikes! Then I came home for a day and then headed to Ottawa with friends for the AVLIC 2010 Conference. I had a great time at the conference but I am glad to be home now and see the kids and Chris. I missed them a lot! I'm glad to be home with all my stamps and stash too, he, he, he. I was having some serious withdrawal, lol!
We have another fun BasicGrey challenge for you today and it is simply to use some gingham on your card! I hope you can join us. Just remember to use at least one BasicGrey product to be eligible to win the random draw for the generous $25 Voucher donated by Simon Says Stamp.
So, I brought just the basic tools/supplies, a few embellies and some Copics to match this BG Kioshi paper with me! I coloured these 2 images and made the cards in my hotel room at night while I was watching TV. I'm quite happy with how the turned out considering I didn't have all my usual stuff, no Nesties, no distress inks etc.

My sweet friend and BG Challenges teamie, Tara W, from England sent me a bunch of images from the Roll Call kit and some of the beautiful flowers and goodies that I have used on these cards. Thanks so much, hun. I just loved colouring this sweetie called Summer from the Wild Sprouts collection and the flowers and ribbon all the goodies are just beautiful. For both cards, I used this pretty green gingham ribbon. When I was quickly throwing stuff in my bag to take with me I tossed in a few cork butterflies that I had on my desk and this cute Making Memories paper clip. Tara sent the ticket....I think it is a Tim Holtz ticket.

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my cards for the BG Challenge. I can't wait to see your gingham cards and make sure you pop over to the BG Challenges blog and see the beautiful creations by the BG DT.

Aww Tara, thanks for sharing these two beauties with us...I really love the soft colour schemes. I always love the way you pull together all the embellishments you put on your cards. That gingham ribbon is so pretty!
