Basic Grey Challenge # 36 - Doodling

Ooooops!!! I thought I'd scheduled this post last night, but seemly not! I'd forget my head if it wasn't screwed on, lol!

Here we are at this week's Basic Grey Challenge which is doodling, something I really love to do. Judging by my fellow teamies' creations they are all closet doodlers at heart too and there really are some fab creations for you to see.

I used a delish image sent to me by the lovely Chris in a birthday parcel recently. I don't own any Alota stamps yet so it was lovely to get some of the images to play with. I coloured and doodled some flower chippies and drew my own leaves to add on. One of my colleagues is off work on long term sick as she has herniated a disc in her back, so I thought I'd send her a card so she knows we haven't forgotten about her!

Image - Alota
Sentiment - from stash
Papers - Basic Grey Cupcake
Colouring - Copics
Flowers - Woodware Chippies
Accents - Black Fineliner for doodling

Don't forget the Basic Grey Challenge will be closed next week whilst some alterations take place - there will be a grand relaunch the week after with a new look blog and lots of yummy goodies to win. Don't miss it will you?

Before I go I must just show you this gorgeous award I received from Lisa, isn't it sweet?

I'm passing it on to Sharon for baby Oscar, as he needs all the bear hugs he can get right now!
