Basic Grey Challenge

Would you believe it, the first couple of cards I made this year are Christmas cards LOL! I couldn't cut up my new BasicGrey Wassail papers before now. Anyway, I was looking at some challenge blogs 'cause I need to get back into crafting, and I spotted BasicGrey Challenge blog - the challenge this week is 'Chipboard' and my two cards fit the bill perfectly YEAH! Paper: BasicGrey Wassail Accessories: BasicGrey chip stickers (I've never bought these before, and they are fab!), buttons and brads. Green and brown ink and scissors to distress the squares. All the BasicGrey products can be found at Sassy Crafts, plus Emma has a great sale on at the moment so go and grab a bargain or two! Thanks for looking.

  6. Two gorgeous cards, I know what you mean about cutting into papers. I've even found myself buying two - one to use, one to 'stroke' (lol).
    Your chipboard elements are great.
    Thanks for joining us at BG.

  12. Fabulous cards Sian! The chipboard looks brilliant and so does the Wassail. I know how you feel, it's almost unbearable isn't it LOL, I still have about half a pad left to stroke! Chris x
