Basic Grey challenge

All this spare time I have I'm putting to good use. You see, I had a couple of wisdom teeth out yesterday so the whole family is on nursing duties. My face is a little swollen, and the pain is starting to kick in, but today I've been good - good enough to get some crafting done.

As always, my crafting involves the internet - reading all my emails, then all my feeds, and then a little blurfing (blog surfing). It was in performing this last activity that I discovered this blog. You know me - mention 'challenge' and I'm there!

Here is my entry - it can be used as a thank you card (after all the nursing care I'm getting I think a few of these are in order!). The theme was Going Green, so I used some beads I recycled from an old bracelet, and some ribbon rescued from a wonderfully wrapped present some time ago. The paper is from the Phoebe range.

and here's a close up of the beads:

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Ooh. I hope that you recover quickly without too much pain and discomfort.

    The beaded accent is really pretty.

    Great card.

  2. Gorgeous card - I love the way you've matched the papers to suit the beads beuatifully.
    Thanks for joining us this week.
