Hello on this super sunny and warm......

Thursday my stamping friends!!  I was just sitting here reading my Blogger updates and saw this weeks Basic Grey Challenge. I have really never played in this challenge and thought it was about time that I did ;D;D.  I hoard, really, I do hoard Basic Grey paper, if there is a new release I buy at least 2 of the pads I like, if not more! :D:D  So, what better chance than this to use some of it up and off course I had to grab some of the super awesome Curio pad. This weeks challenge is a sketch challenge so I was playing around with it and this right here is what came out



Faith






and this is the sketch







The recipe for my card is as follows:

Paper: PTI Rustic Cream, Dark Chocolate, Ripe Avocado, Basic Grey Curio


Stamp: ODBD Full of Grace  "Faith"


Ink: StazOn Timber Brown, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Tea Dye, Vintage Photo

Accessories: Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 4, SU embossing folder Antique Wallpaper, hand dyed seam binding , antique brass cross charm, white paper roses colored to match the DP, large handmade flower, foam tape



Well, this is it for right now, I'll have to run and get some chores done. I wish I could just send my kids off to school and go and create all day, but reality sets in really quick, the laundry ain't doing itself and the dishes in the sink stay dirty if I don't intervene :D:D. So, I'd better run and get it all done!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Hugs,

Sabrina, you shouldnot be hoarding your Basic Grey DP. You have a wonderful eye for putting clors and papers together and make beautiful cards in the process. Your card is gorgeous! What a great take on this challenge.
