Hi peeps and hope you are all OK today xxx.
It's that time of the week when we catch up with our friends in the US of A over at the Simon Says Stamp challenge and this week our theme is
This week the DT are showcasing Basic Grey products.
You don't have to use them of course, but if you have them we would love to see them :-)
And as always, our lovely Heidi is giving away a fabulous …
… for one lucky winner to spend …
… right here :)
THANK YOU Heidi & Simon Says Stamp xxx
So what did I do then?
Well, for what seems like aaaaaaaaaaages now, I got out the old Copics and gave this sweet little Penny Black ABOUT TOWN Mimi stamp a splash of colour.
And the paper I used is BasicGrey WHAT'S UP 6 x 6 Cardstock Paper Pack.
I've sort of gone back to my clean and simple roots with this one It's the way I used to make them years ago before I got tempted by all the lovely blooms and embellies etc.
Funnily enough, I was a bit richer then.
Do you think there's a correlation here peeps lol!!!
It does seem a while since I did any colouring so I really enjoyed this and these are the pens I used -
Skin - E000, E00, E11, E21, R00, R02
Hair - E31, E35, E39, E85
The rest - E31, E35, E39, E85, G000, G00, G21, Y15, Y38, YR04, YR07, YR68
And I thought I'd give her a nice hippy type car so I did a bit of paper piecing.
I soooooo want a car like that :)
The stars were cut using a set of Wplus9 CLEAR CUT STACKERS: STARS Designer Dies.
I found the button at the bottom of my button stash and added a bit of twine, like you do!!!
So that's my card and thanks for stopping by today.
Can I just ask anybody out there if they have had any issues with their Grand Calibre machine? Mine has started to ooze oil and grease and it's gone all over the plates and over my work. I now have to sandwich anything I want to cut in between 2 pieces of thin paper to protect it or it just gets covered. I know my machine gets loads of use - probably well above average - but I'm surprised that this has started to happen and don't know why. Anybody got any clues or know of somebody I can contact re this please. I use it so much that I cannot manage without it really. Thanks me darlins xxx
Right I'm off. Have the best day and see you soon as soon.
Huggiest of hugs to all xxx
