Basic Grey Challenge #17

>> Friday, 9 April 2010

Hi everyone, I hope you have had a good week – wouldn’t it be nice if we had a long weekend every weekend!  And this weather can certainly continue, it’s been a fabulous 19 degrees today.  Lots of nice things have happened in the last couple of days.  Yesterday morning I ordered my first set of hAnglar stamps then there was a knock at the door and my Papercrafter of the Year prize had finally arrived – four huge boxes stuffed with crafty stash.  I just need to find somewhere to put it all now!  And to top it all off, what I thought was a slow puncture in one of my car tyres turned out to be a leaky valve which the nice man at the garage fixed for free.  I love it when you have days like that!!

Onto my card, and I have used Martine’s fab sketch for this weeks Basic Grey Challenge.  This is the first time I’ve used this Sarah Kay stamp and she was lovely to colour.  All the papers are BG Indian Summer and the metal photo corner is from American Craft Elements.

I’m visiting my parents over the weekend so hopefully the weather will stay nice so we can get out for some walks with the children.  Whatever you are doing, have a great weekend.
