Basic Grey.............Anything Goes

Thank you so much to everyone who joined in with our It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas Challenge.  I am sorry that some of you had problems linking your entries, I have no idea why and I did try to rectify it a few times but I wonder if it might have been an Internet Explorer problem as someone did change browser and managed to link their entry.  Anyway, ALL entries have been taken into account and a lucky winner will be drawn shortly !

See you back here on the 12th January !

This week's challenge is


Please remember that you do need to use at least one Basic Grey product on your creation to qualify for our prize !

As always, our wonderful sponsor,  Simon Says Stamp is offering one lucky winner a fab $25 shopping spree in  the Simon Says Superstore, just think of the goodies you could treat yourself to with that !!

My papers are from Recess and colours with used one of  Mo Manning Digital Pencil and coloured by Copics. I used Spellbinders circles and attached them to Beads and a couple of Bells  to a Bo Bunny brads and a ribbon.  I used the Tim Holtz Sizzix clock, using a Bo Bunny brads to the hands and finally added a New Year greeting by LOTV.

In reflection I should have created the card with a circular base so that it could swing  naturally - 
 the problem of hindsight is it comes too late!!!!


I hope you all have a brilliant Christmas and I wish you all everything you wish for in the New Year.
Thanks for stopping by

Simon Says............Merry Christmas

Thank you for joining us for the Tool, Stamp &/or Product  challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too..

This week it is your favourite

I knew exactly what I wanted to make with the Holiday Shapes  and have the dangling somehow.
I decided to make the little lanterns and I use the Simon Says Exclusives Bella Blooks for the flowers on the top along with Leave.
I tries using both wire or fishing line to attached the Holiday Shapes but was unsuccessful and ended up just using pink cotton which was perfect. I glittered them all from Soarkle Ultra Fine for the pink lantern and the white one with some America Crafts Zing Pink They took forever although I really enjoined making them - such fun!!!
The Lace (Although I have to admit I am not sure it is the same one) I used around the edges and died the pink one with Tim Holtz distress ink Victorian Velvet.
The lantern were make from Bazzill white cardstock and Candy Pale for the pink.

I managed to get some little candles which look gorgeous in real life although my photographs don't do them any justice.

I hope you all your Christmas Wishes com True
