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.
