Today I wanted to share with you a card I made Sunday night. I was Blog Hopping (one of my most favorite past times) and found this site that hosts Basic Grey Challenges each week. Boy the wheels in my head started to spin a little bit faster!!! If you know me personally, you would know I am a Stampin Up demonstrator and have been for over 10 yrs now. I love Stampin Up, thats why I have been a demonstrator for so long. But, even if you do know me, you may NOT know that I am a closet Basic Grey Lover. Oh my, I said it out loud!!!! The colors and patterns are just sooooooo beautiful, its hard to resist.
So the 1st challenge in 2009 from this site is a sketch challenge. You can find the site/challenge here: http://basicgreychallenges.blogspot.com/ The only requirements to enter are to use at least ONE Basic Grey product. Well that wasnt hard to do. I have 5 paper collection packages and rarely use them. I guess that would be considered a horder of the goods!! So with these challenges, I can test my skills with the new goods and use up some of the stash I have here.
This card I made above, I used Basic Grey's Blush collection which is one of my most favorite paper collections because it has the pinks and reds with the browns that I just love. I did use Stampin Up's Love You Much stamp set. This is a brand new Valentines set that will be out in the new catalog on January 19th. So consider this my first try on the challenges and you will be seeing more of these!! I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy them!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
