BasicGrey Challenge 39...'Wings'.

Hi! Where did those two weeks go?
Hope you are doing ok?
We have a lovely new Challenge for you
at BasicGrey-'WINGS'
i have used fairies but
you could use a bird/butterfly-
as long as it has wings.

Such a fab prize again: $25 shopping spree at
If you could kindly state which BasicGrey product(s)
you have used it helps us when we visit you
thanks again so much :)

Mes not 100% happy with
my card,you probably know that
feeling when you just think it is time
to try something different...
i really love these Lavinia images,
just don't think i have used them in the right way
the paper is from the BG Origins collection,
i love the fresh feel the colours on the DP gives
i have inked the edges with VersaColor-Pinecone
(not sure if i will ever change that :)
coloured just a bit with Marvy pens
and used a little Glossy Accents

please pop over to the BG Blog
 and have a peek at
 the gorgeous creations from the DT girls...

thank so much for visiting me,
have a lovely day...
hugs all,Lou.xxxx

Fantastic card Lou and its so nice seeing these stamps being used. I love watching them using them at the NEC and Ally Pally but never see them in Blogland. I think you have done a brilliant job and used them in such a different way.

Have a good weekend,

Hiya Lou,
Oh I do feel like I am chasing my tale lately hun, sorry it's taken me so long to hop over.

I am not sure if I am going to the NEC this time, it's our Anniversary that week and we might be going away, when you get a min let me know what day you plan to go and I will let you know for def nearer the day... Thank you for asking though, it would be lovely to put faces to my friends in the world of blogging, I met Brenda last time and she was such a lovely lady, pity we don't all live near eh....

As for your card I love it, I really do like the Lavinia stamps anyway, they are a bit pricey I think but the effect with them makes up for it, your design is fabulous hun, don't be so critical...

Take care for now
