Basic Grey Challenge 3 & WOJ GDT Call

Hi I have been busy honest I have I am making lots of things but just finding it hard to get to the computer to post. My sister has asked me to make a card for a friend who she used to go to Uni with, who is expecting. Such a wonderful occasion, 'Our Kid' as I call her said it's got to have something to do with BUMP on it. I had the perfect stamps in mind as she likes kinda contemporary and joke cards (put it this way, she has never asked for a card from me before) but could I find them NO! I think they were digi not sure but they were really young girls that were pregnant, quite hip (she would of loved them) if you know the stamps I am talking about please leave a link.

Any way I love WOJ, who doesn't ? lol & I love Elisabeth Bell so this answered my dilemma I am using this for Basic Grey challenge as the inspiration was a lovely photo and this is what made me choose this colour scheme. I really like the green in the photo So I put some creams & gold with it instead of white. So thanx for the photo & inspiration Basic Grey xx


I so love WOJ should of used their sketch I could of entered this one boo hoo. loving the close up of this she just looks so serine. As you know I love WOJ stamps especially Elisabeth Bells images, so gorge, so I thought I would enter this in their GDT spot. Oh how I would love a place I may enter a couple of times as it is not limited lol. Yes, I am that desperate to get it (although from what I have seen the competion is very tuff) so I won't hold my breath lol but if you would like to have a go to just pop along to Katharina’s blog for more information, good luck to all of you that have a go xx
UPDATE: This is the CARD that my little Sister picked for her friend (I am so happy she did) lol

Not happy with the ins
ide of this card though ( I hope that won't go against me for the WOJ GDT oops!) I just wenta bit blank on how to put the bump in. However, loving the rub on's of BG But I haven't done a good job at all here. I was that unhappy with the inside of the card I made another for Our kid to choose from I will put this up soon it's SO different (No stamps, me I know!) I found the challenge from allsorts last time so hard (as couldn't use stamp) thought I could give it another go lol Quite pleased with the result so hope you pop bk to see it. Please pop over to Basic Grey as useual the DT have come up with some lovely examples.
