Basic Grey & CES Challenges

Morning!! I'm so thankful it's the weekend. No school runs, uniforms, lunches, finding lost shoes, lol.. etc. etc. etc... My only gripe for this morning is that I have 2 littlies wanting breakfast in bed, and yes, I am making it for them!!

This fortnight the challege on Basic Grey Challenges is Wings, while this week on C.E.S Challenges it's St. Patrick's / Good Luck.

Have you seen the fabulous Gnomes from Whiff of Joy?? They are just the bees knees, I  love them. So fun and a joy to colour.

My papers are Basic Grey Origins matted with brown cardstock. I coloured Good Luck Gnome with copics and added a little star dust stickles to the shamrocks. The sentiment is from the Fancy Phrases set by Waltzingmouse Stamps. 

I punched out the butterflies using MS punch, inked the edges and added some stickles to them. Love how the stickles soaks in the colour of the ink. The ribbon is from an old Raspberry Ribbons kit. The doily and pearls are from my stash. 

Card Makin' Mamas - something green
Fairy Knoll feeing a little green (use green)
Crafty Purple Frog - things with wings
Rubber Cafe - faux or real stitching
Cooking It Up With Katie - Spring, yellow, flowers

Thanks for visiting. Don't forget to pop over and leave my teamies a little love on their blogs. 

Have a wonderful day!
