Basic Grey Challenge........'Make a Tag'

Good morning peeps,
Well I cannot believe we have had another week of glorious sunshine here in the UK. Unfortunately the forecast for next week does not look good so I am not a happy bunny as since I made the move to Lincolnshire 13 years ago it has rained on my birthday every year hurumph!!
Ok mini moan over, back to the crafting. It is time for another fab challenge over at Basic Grey Challenges and this time we want to see you make a tag.

I decide to use this beautiful Tilda with Butterfly and coloured her with my Distress Markers. The gorgeous paper is from the Piccadilly collection from BG. Both yummy butterfly dies are from Joy crafts and the flowers, lace and charm are from my stash. I have faux stitched most edges and distressed with Walnut Stain DI, then added lots of sparkly Star Dust Stickles.
Well I'm off to prep for another workshop and then maybe I'll get some crafting time for me.
Enjoy the sunshine wherever you are and thanks for popping by.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Crafty Ribbons - 'Anything Goes with Ribbon'
Inky Chicks - #9 'Summer Colours'
Lovely Hanglar and Sweet Magnolia - #74 'Bingo Card' (I used Lace, Pearls and Dies)
Loves Rubber Stamps - #62 'How Charming'
Magnolia-Licious - 'Anything Goes'
Marvelous Magnolias - #37 'Shape it Up'
Oldie But a Goodie - 'Best Dressed'

Basic Grey DT Using Flowers

Morning folks,
Wow what a manic few weeks. I think the sunshine has brought all the tourists to Horncastle as the shop has been super busy as have the classes. A huge HI!! to all my lovely ladies that come and craft with me and make my job so enjoyable, thank you x.
Now today it is time once again for a fabulous challenge over at Basic Grey and this time we want to see Flowers on your project. Easy I know as so many of us love our flowers. However, don't forget you must also include a product from Basic Grey to enter and to be in with a chance to win a super voucher from Simon Says.
Ok here is my little contribution for the DT:

I chose to use the super cute 'Thank You' from Saturated Canary, one of my all time faves from Krista's beautiful designs. I coloured her with my pro's and added lots of yummy shabby white frantage. I hadn't made a napkin fold card for ages but it does really show off the stunning BG papers all from the Capella collection. Pretty much everything has been faux stitched, distressed with Walnut Stain DI and then I've added copious amounts of Platinum Stickles to the edges.

Ok well I hope you like her and I look forward to seeing your entries over at Basic Grey Challenges.

A Creative Romance - 'Ribbon or Twine'
Love Rubber Stamps - 'Use a Hoarded Item' (didn't want to part with the last of my BG Capella DP's but I've done it!!)
