Happy Saturday! I've pulled a major goober..... this post was supposed to post first thing this morning, but for some reason didn't. so instead I am re-typing it this evening..... sorry! Dave & I did have a fun day out though. We went to lunch at a great restaurant in this area called 'Melt'. they serve all kinds of grilled cheese sandwiches. if you have ever watched Man vs. Food on The Food Channel (I think.... we don't get cable, so I'm not positive that's it), they were featured a while back. Then we went to see the new 'World War Z' movie! Dave came out of the movie a bit freaked, but I am soooo ready to crack some zombie heads! wooo hoooo! loved the movie!
anyhow, I had the coolest offer a while back from the wonderful folks over at the Basic Grey Challenge Blog. they asked if I would be interested in being a Guest Designer for them. shoot yeah! you KNOW how much I LOVE my Basic Grey!!!! then I was told the challenge theme for my week: no stamped images. crikey! can you fathom how very very hard this challenge was for me? almost as bad as a CAS..... but I prevailed and did my best. :)
I used paper and elements from the Sweet Threads collection. the flower was made from 2 different pairs of shorts from my sons and a Tim Holtz tattered flowers die. buttons & trim are vintage, corduroy brad is SU!, and joy chipboard sticker is She Art. a few rhinestones on the banner complete the card. I did so some distressing with my ink, but that was it.
Be sure to stop by the challenge blog to see what the DT came up with for this fun challenge! Thank you to the team for inviting me to play along! It was fun, even though it was tough for me. we all need to step out of our comfort zone every once in a while! :)
