Basic Grey Challenge

Hello!  I am a total fan of Basic Grey!!  I love all their patterned papers.  The only problem is there are not any stores near me that carry the line.  So I am limited to what I have.  I made this card for the Basic Grey Challenges Blog #11.  It was a photo inspiration challenge and I love blues, greys and browns together. 
The paper is from K&Company, the punch is Martha Stewart.  I cut the brown flourishes on the Slice.  The flower in the center is from CTMH.  Ribbon is from Michaels.  I based the layout on a sketch from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge blog - which of course I missed the deadline for.  What's new?  I am quite pleased with the result.

another challenge I missed for TESC97!!

Good morning!  Here's another card I made for a challenge on Taylored Expressions #97.  At least I'm pretty sure I missed it.  Anyhow, the stamp is another Whipper Snapper colored with copics.  The dp is from K&Company that I've had in my stash for a while.  The colors are much more vibrant than the picture shows. 

Last night I pulled out my box of pictures and decided I'm going to doing some scrapbooking.  I really should get going as I only have about 5 pages done for Leo and he is 5 1/2 years old!!  I'm sure you can imagine how large this box of photos is!!  lol!    While I scrapbook I will be waiting for the doctors office to call me back.  I'm waiting to hear the results of some bloodwork for Erik (my six year old).  He has been complaining/crying about severe leg pain so I took him to see the Dr. on Wednesday who sent us for bloodwork.  That in itself was a treat.  He cried the whole time.  It was like trying to hold a greased pig.  When we walked out thru the waiting room everyone was telling him how well he did.  Since he wasn't feeling well he really couldn't care less but I thought it was sweet of the other people to lend their support for such a little boy dealing with the traumatic experience of having blood drawn with that harpoon they used.  Anyhow this whole ordeal really has me quite concerned.....

Another challenge - Mojo Monday 120 - in under the wire!!

Good Morning!  What a bright sunny, snow covered, 10 degree (farenheit) day!!   I think I will be staying inside today to keep warm.  I can't speak for my kids though.  It amazes me that they are able to go out and play and still come in stating they are hot in their snowsuits.

Here is a card I made for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge.  I enjoy the challenges but never have my cards completed, photographed and uploaded by the deadline.  I think I've squeaked in under the wire here for this one!!

I used a Whipper Snapper stamp which I think is just adorable.  Colored it with copics.  DP is Bo Bunny, another one of my favorites, cs is ctmh, with a Martha punch and nesties.   After all the Christmas cards, I am liking the color scheme which is more springy!  :)

This second card also uses a Whipper Snapper stamp colored with copics.  The dp is Basic Grey that I've had in my stash for a long time.  Another Martha punch with some nesties.  Again I like the color combination of the cranberry and brown.

This one was for the 2S4Y challenge but I didn't make the midnight deadline last night.  Oh well.  I guess it pays to have the battery in the camera charged.

Since I am staying in today I think I will spend some time at the craft table.  Maybe I'll be able to make a couple more challenges this week.  Check out the right side of my blog to see the challenges I enjoy and maybe you can join in too!!
