Give Us More Basic Grey

First weekend of the year – so what you all up to? Catching up with all those challenges then (like me?). Wishing you could find your scissors? Mine have vanished from in front if my very eyes. I’ve searched high and low. Now you may think that the other six pairs of scissors would suffice but Oh No they all have very specific jobs and I’ve lost my most used pair of course! LOL

Ok so just have time to post this before doing more scissor hunting! This one is for the new challenge blog for Sugar Nellie Stamps – The Sugar Bowl – which has a sketch to start them off. Thanks Girls.

PS. The sentiment was stamped onto the button with the Studio G alphas and Staz-on ink.

Stamp – Leanne Ellis Sugar Nellie; Studio G alpha
Colouring – Letraset Promarkers
Ink – VersaFine Onyx Black; Staz-on
Paper – BasicGrey Offbeat
Usual Suspect – Paper trimmer; Scissors (baa Humbug); double-sided tape; Silicone glue
Other – Button; Wire; 3D-glue; Sewing machine; Embroidery thread

    I love this card Kim great composition & colours & that image is soo cute :o)

    We've had our son & grandson to stay for the week so am feeling like a zombie at the moment lol – had great fun though. Really need to to sort the house out now (if I can find the energy) & take down the decorations. Hopefully sometime this weekend can find time for some challenges I've really missed them.

    Have a great weekend :o)

    Gorgeous card!, don’t you just LOVE Promarkers?.x

    Can’t find your scissors… it sounds to me like you have gremlins. My mum and I have problems with them all the time, you’d be amazed at the amount of stamps, images, cards etc that go missing only to turn up somewhere a few weeks later in a place you definately looked in. Hope those pesky gremlins bring your scissors back soon!

    Luckily it didn’t affect your card making – your card is fab. I love the colours and the little image, very cute.
