Basic Grey meets Friday Sketchers with Whiff of Joy

Well, after spending another 5 hours on the phone to Virgin tonight I am not much further forward - I can get on the internet now but it is so slow and hitty missy. Tomorrow I phone to give notice and am moving to another internet provider so any suggestions will be gratefully accepted.

I've combined another 2 sketches, I've used this weeks Friday Sketchers sketch and realised this card also qualifies for the Basic Grey challenge which is Christmas. Apologies for the pants photo, the H2O's are reflecting the lighting and this is the best of a bad bunch.


I've coloured Santa Charlie with distress inks and H2O's. Isn't he just the cutest!!!
The papers are Basic Grey Wassail (love these).
The large snowflake is a Cuttlebug cut and emboss die, the smaller snowflake is a Martha Stewart punch.
The sentiment is a Studio G stamp.


Pop back later as I have some candy up for grabs!!!


Thanks for looking,

  3. Beautiful Bev! Love the new stamp and your wonderful colouring. I do love the BG Christmas papers, all gorgeous and you've put them together so beautifully for all of the challenges. Sorry you're still having internet probs. I really don't know who to suggest to you, I think they all seem to have their problems these days which is so frustrating as they're very happy to take our money! Hope you get sorted tomoz. Chris x

  4. I love this Charlie Santa stamp and what a great colour combination. Sounds like you are pulling your hair out with your internet connection. I am with Orange and to date have had no problems with them. I have one of their wireless livebox.

    Where do you get your Martha Stewart punches from - I am trying to source a couple of the border punches, but with no success so far.
