BasicGrey Challenge 35... Dots/Spots & DT Call!!

Hi! so happy to be here with our 1st BasicGrey Challenge of 2011 :)
Hope you have had a nice first week of the New Year?
It seems to have gone so quick already

For our Challenge we would love to see
Polka Dots/Spots on your card/project.
I have over stamped with a Polka Dot
stamp on my Curio BG papers,added
some dotty ribbon and the Hero Arts
sentiment has a dotty background.

Just love Apple Tilda, i have coloured her
with VersaColor cubes and tried to make
the apple in the background look
like patchwork...mmmm not quite sure if it does?
(the apple shape is from a book that
my lovely Mum gave me for Christmas)
A little bit of shrink plastic for the apple charm 

We have a fab prize: $25 shopping spree at

Simon Says Superstore

If you could kindly state which BG product(s)
you have used  as it just helps us when we
visit you- thanks so much :)
We also are very lucky to have
Sandie Dunne (The Crafty Side of Me) as our Guest Designer,
please have a peek at her gorgeous card/Blog
and too the very talented/lovely DT's projects
we are having a DT Call...
if you would like to enter - when posting
your card/project please put DT
next to your entry
 we are running the DT Call over two of our Challenges
so lots of time to get your entries in...
thanks as always,
love to read your comments.
Have a lovely weekend.
hugs all,Lou.xxxxxx
