Basic Grey Challenge #10 for twenty ten...

Hi everyone, well I'm back again and we have the first challenge of twenty ten on BasicGrey Challenges today and it’s a lovely photo inspiration theme. And there's a gorgeous ‘Nook and Pantry’ themed prize sponsored by Simon Says Stamp I hope you can join us... and there are superb cards from my DT friends but on a very sad note the wonderful Kristen had to step down from the team, we will miss her greatly BiG HuGs sweetie :)




I have based my card on Dawn's fabulous ICSketch, it's been a while and I did always enjoy them :)


My interpretation was a whole lot lighter and brighter in my head, but I opted for these BasicGrey papers and think they're a little bit pinky. The brown panel represents the carpet and I have dry embossed if you can see. I used the sheen ribbon was for the roman blind.

So, I have had this cute sweet stamp since before Christmas, I KNOW, shocking!!! I just haven't had the chance to ink and colour with all these trials over the holidays and it has been cutting into my crafting big time. So I am so major angry at the early Learning centre they have been so horrible to me there's so much to moan about I think I should save it for another post!!! Working on an effective complaints letter and try and get my money back!


Supplies: Patterned Paper: BasicGrey: blush; Stamps: American Crafts: sentiment; Ink: Memento & archival: black; Tim Holtz: Distress Inks; Copic: markers; Dies: Nestabilities: fancy tags; Cuttlebug: embossing folder; WRNK: corner punch; Other: American Crafts: ribbon; 3D foam;
Thanks so much for stopping by if you get a chance there's a wonderful Saturday Sketch challenge over at Club Anya and Friends!
BiG HuGs Kim :)

Absolutely gorgeous Kim, I just love this image and she is coloured beautifully as always. Love the turquoise/aqua paper, I had blue fixed in my mind which wouldn't be moved !!!

Where is our snow ? Was supposed to be up to our necks in it this morning but looks like you have pinched it all again !!! Send it our way - we are so disappointed !

Have a great weekend,

Hugs,
