Hi everyone, we have the first challenge of the new year on BasicGrey Challenges starting today and it’s a lovely photo inspiration theme this time. We have a gorgeous ‘Nook and Pantry’ themed prize sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and there are superb cards from my DT friends so I hope you can join us. Best wishes to the lovely Kristen who sadly has left the team and we all wish you well.

I’ve made a card based on the pretty colours in the photo and I’ve done some pleating of the BasicGrey Obscure paper as there’s a great ‘how to’ by Mina on the Just Magnolia blog this week so I’m entering my card for that challenge too. The sweet Tilda stamp is water coloured with Ranger distress inks, cut out and then stickled and the background card is Bazzil swiss dots with a card blank made from Core’dinations teal card. TFL and have a good weekend.

This is really lovely, I recently started to follow your blog and must say your creation's are wonderful. I really love your colouring ability, fantastic.
I recently ventured into Alter Art, and love your last project, as I don't have any of the product's yet, I made a tag with household filler...

Wonderful work, can't wait to see more...

Hi Chris

The more I see of your Magnolia cards the more I love them, despite not being really into cute these stamps lend themselves to so many different ways of using them and you do that so beautifully.
