Bais Grey (Granola), SketchSaturday and Daring Card Makers challenges

The challenge at Basic grey this week is 'One for the Boys' which fit in nicely for the sketch at Sketch Saturday this week and Daring Cardmakers bird theme also fit in with the Basic Grey male theme. I use BG Granola papers and one of Inkadinkdoo's winter birds, which is watercoloured. I didn't want to use flowers so I edged the image (which looked a little bare) with some brown sparkly twigs from a Christmas decoration. The photographs are not very good - I think my camera must be suffering grom jet lag. I should say it's good to be home - but it's not.

Hi Miss Inventive, nice to have you home (bet that lady in the craft shop was sad to lose your custom). Nice card, great colours, must get some of the BG paper. I have not seen you mention your prize, did you claim it? Or, did you miss it? PC going away tonight, not very well, in fact proper poorly. It's doing all kind of funny things - last week I ended up on a porn site and I was only looking for Penny Black Stamps (lol) honest.

BFN - I'll be back in a week,
