BG colour combo and a natter....

This week's Basic Grey Challenge is all about colour combinations...
  • Green & Red/Maroon
  • Brown & Cream
  • Blue & Gold/Yellow/Orange
I loved this challenge and used papers from 'Offbeat' and the design was from Craftytemplates. The other DTs are gorgeous so please pop over and have a look.

I've been approached by a company in the States to test and review a product they have designed to help us crafters. Can't say any more about it but can't wait for it to arrive...but you will all laugh when I show it as its something very close to my heart!

Also my lovely friend Pam (who is so talented and generous) has got together with some of her friends and has designed a fantastic new blog called The Vintage Veranda.
This is what they have to say....'We invite you to join our vintage community where we share our love for vintage-style creations - anything from cards to altered art. The Vintage Veranda is an online resource and community for anyone who creates in the vintage style or who wants to learn how to create their own vintage style. We welcome both the seasoned artists and those just exploring vintage.' So please pop over and have a look!

And lastly, as some of you know my blogging has become slightly chaotic lately. Well life is pretty chaotic at the moment....(not blaming Belle...honestly!). I am still here but until Belle starts at playgroup in January I'll only be blogging as and when time allows. I do appreciate everyone that takes the time to visit and I promise that when January hits this blog will start functioning properly!

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend and enjoying the biscuits Belle baked for you yesterday!

Hi, BG Challenge teamie! ;o) This card is fantastic! I love that Offbeat paper and those red heart buttons look superb with it.

Sorry not been commenting much.. connection was down for a couple of weeks, and have been catching up.. slowly!! ;o)

Belle's biscuits looked delish, and the ribbon storage idea is brill! Mine is all in a tangled heap in a big box at the moment. Sorting is out is about No. gazillion and one on my 'To Do' list at the moment, though! (sigh)

Anyway, I HOPE to keep up again now! ;o)

Hope you're doing better, sweetie.
