Basic Grey # 1 - A Sketch by Tara G

Better late than never, here is my DT card for the relaunch of the Basic Grey Challenge. As many of you already know I've been having major PC problems and so haven't been blogging much. We resorted in the end to wiping the computer clean (eeeeeeek, it was so scary) and have now recovered most of the stuff, although we've lost Outlook and Word and one or two other applications. I have a new Google Mail email addy now which you can find on my profile.

Anyway, back to my card! I have so enjoyed creating again for the BG challenge and working alongside all my lovely teamies. This has always been one of my fave challenges and I love BG papers to bits. For this card I've used the June Bug range and a cute little image sent to me by Katy. And what a wonderful sketch to work with so a big thanks to Tara G for that one!

I hope you can check out the challenge which now runs fornightly and there's some yummy candy which closes on 21st August plus a fab monthly prize to enter. Martine has done such a brilliant job with the new look blog and I know we're going to have oodles of fun!!

Before I go I would just like to thank Beth for this wonderful award which really made my day today! I would like to give it to everyone who stops by this week and leaves a comment, you are all such lovely friends and your visits mean the world to me ;o)

I'm taking the kids out for an hour or two now........ they didn't even get dressed yesterday so I thought we'd best make an effort today, lol!
