Basic Grey Week 20 - Punch It.......


Good morning everyone and welcome to another Basic Grey Challenge...... this week we want you to 'punch it'....yep, look out all those wonderful punches you all own and get creative. Oh and don't forget to include something Basic Grey on your project of course! Need inspiration? Then look no further than the blogs of my fellow teamies who've dazzled us with their projects. You can link to them through the challenge blog.

I received my wonderful new Cappella papers this week, delish! They're so delicate and pretty and I think they work perfectly on this vintage style card..... free image courtesy of Magic Moonlight. So my punching consists of the Martha Stewart hearts border and a sweet butterfly punch (not sure of the make on this one). Ooooh and I nearly forgot, the flowers were also punched with the EK Success Retro Daisy!

I think I might add some letters to my card (if I can squeeze them on somewhere, lol) to spell 'MUM' and give it to my Mum for her birthday next week..... I'm sure the traditional feel will go down a treat as she's not really a Tilda lover sadly, lol!

Well I do hope you can enter the challenge this week and look forward to seeing what you come up with..... something tells me we're in for a bumper entry ;o)

Enjoy your weekend and take care!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
