An Apple A Day ….

Picture 006c copy

Hi there peeps and hope you are all OK today :)

We are heading over the water to see what’s happening over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge but before we get there I just have to say that I hope our friends on the Eastern side of the US are managing to stay warm following the awful weather they’ve had.

Apparently we in the UK and due a cold spell coming in from Siberia so we’ll need the thermals ourselves  before long.

Mind you,  it might not be true – I’m only going on what Tricky Dicky told me. I wanted to put the electric blanket on the bed last night and his Lordship told me that it’s best to ‘hang on cos of the cold snap from Siberia that is coming cos we’ll need it for sure then’. Now I love him dearly but sometimes he is tighter than cramp and isn’t a fan of the blanket cos it isn't that cheap to run, so he might have been winding me up.

But if he isn’t ….. it’s gonna be COLD!!!!

Anyway, our theme this week is


This week, the Design Team are showcasing Basic Grey products this week but of course you don't HAVE to use them to join in. But if you have them then why not use them !

As always there is a humungous ….

.. which the winner will get to spend  ….

Here’s the card.
I have to say that IRL it is nicer than it look on here :(

I’m doing it a bit different today and will put the shopping list at the end – all the pics are linked so clicking on each one will take you to the right place on the website :)

But I’ll put the list of Copics I used here as usual ..

E000, E00, E11, E21, R11, R20 (skin), E42, E43, E50(hair), E15, E29, E31, E33, E35, E37, E42, E57, G99, Y38, YG0000, YG01, YG03, YG95, YR04, YR07 (the rest)

Phew – I went a bit mad today I think lol!!

Here’s some pics but once again they aint too fab  cos the light is still so bad – there is a bit of a mucky tone to it which isn't good and I’m not that clever with the editing to manage to get rid of it on the photos :(
