Challenge 110 - Anything Goes !

Thank you so much to everyone who joined in with our Happy Christmas challenge.  Don't forget to check back later to find out who the lucky winner is.

Before we tell you about our next challenge it is with heavy hearts we have to give you the sad news that this will be our very last challenge :)

We would like to thank you all for your many years of joining in with our challenges and we hope you have enjoyed them as much as we have and will continue to love using Basic Grey !

We would like to say a HUGE thank you to our sole sponsor, Simon Says Stamp, for their generosity and commitment to BasicGrey Challenges and for providing you with such a super prize each challenge.

On a personal note I would like to thank everyone with whom I have had the pleasure of working alongside at BasicGrey Challenges to DT members past and present and also to the Guest Designers we have had over the years.  This has been an amazing Design Team to work with and I thank you all for your hard work and for becoming my friends.  I love you all !

**nose blow and tear wiping break** 

So, our final challenge is......


just remember to use a Basic Grey product and let us know in your post what that is.  Oh, and don't forget that we are also now limiting the number of entries that you can make to three. 

As always, our wonderful sponsor, Simon Says Stamp is offering one lucky winner a fab $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Superstore

(Please note: This is a voucher code that entitles the winner to a $25 saving off their order in Simon Says Stamp, P+P charges will still apply unless the conditions are met to earn free P+P, please check here if you would like to see these conditions)

  4. Oh I am so sad to hear this will be your last challenge. This was the very first challenge blog I ever entered, quite a few years ago, and I had the honour of being a guest designer way back in March 2011. You've always had fantastic DTs, and of course they've been using the best papers!! Best wishes to all the BG girls.

  6. Oh, I'm SO sad to hear that this is the farewell challenge for BG challenges! BG Challenges was also one of the very first challenges I ever entered and I became a huge fan as it gave me a wonderful outlet to used all my stash of BG papers and products. Then I was SO honoured to join the BG team. I will miss seeing all the beautiful inspiration from the BG DT and miss all the wonderful challenges that you provided for us.
    Farewell BG Challenges and Happy Holidays to the BG DT!
