Easter Time at Basic Grey

Good afternoon peeps,
Hope you are all well and not buried too deeply in snow!!
We had a light dusting here in Horncastle last night but it was all pretty slushy by the morning so not too bad just really chilly.
Anyway I have a card to share with you today that I have made for the Basic Grey Challenge as the lovely Cathy has asked me to join them for another couple of challenges as their Guest Designer. Thanks so much Cathy I have loved being a part of your fab team, and of course Basic Grey is a must have in my stash anyway.
The theme for this challenge is Easter so a nice easy one.

The beautiful image is from Sugar Nellie and is coloured with my Promarkers. The gorgeous spring DP's are from the Basic Grey collection 'Kissing Booth'. I created the shaped card using Grand Nesties Labels 23 and the flowers and ribbon came from my stash.

Keep warm on this wintery weekend and I be back soon

Especially for Mum

Evening Peeps,
Yay! I finally think Mr Mojo is back on my side or maybe I just made a card for the best friend in my life my mum. As many of you know yellow is not my first choice but it just seemed right somehow.

I used the beautiful Tilda with lilacs and coloured her with my Pro's. The gorgeous DP's are from the 'Wisteria' collection by Basic Grey. I have faux stitched pretty much everything and then distressed with Pumice Stone DI and Platinum Stickles.  The scrummy butterfly edge is from Tim Holtz by Sizzix and I layered it with more papers from BG.
I am entering this into the following fab challenges:
MDUC - #187 'Happy Birthday to MDUC' (Huge congrats to you all on your 4th birthday!!)
Magnolia Mania - #65 'Butterflies'
I Love Promarkers - 'Ribbons and Bows'
Tilda's Town - #43 'Anything Seasonal'
Stamptacular Sunday - #206 'To DIE For'
Ok that's all from me, I hope you like my little corner of blogland and thank so much for popping by.

GDT Creation for Basic Grey Challenges

Good Evening peeps,
Sorry so late with this post but Blogger decided it no longer liked my pictures so have had to find devious routes to get my pics on my posting.
Anyway, I have another creation to share with you that I made for my last Basic Grey Challenges GDT spot. The challenge this fortnight is again super easy 'Spring Is In The Air' so think floral, fresh etc but please remember you need to include at least one item from Basic Grey.

I used the gorgeous papers from the Picadilly collection and covered this fabulous ribbon box. Everything is distressed with Frayed Burlap DI then I added some beautiful die cuts from Memory Box and a super cute Tilda.
Anyway I hope you pop over to Basic grey Challenges, they are a fab team and you'll find loads of inspiration over there.
Thanks to the whole team for having me as your GD I have loved working with you.
Wishing all mum's a very Happy Mother's Day I hope you are all spoilt rotten.
See you all soon
