I'm so glad the weekend is here!

Although I've got to do a slight bit of redecorating thanks to my youngest son I'm hoping to do a bit of crafting tomorrow.  We are hoping to go to Brands Hatch, which is only about 20 miles from our house, on Sunday to watch the World Touring Cars, but that depends on kids behaviour and the weather!!

Anyway, tonights card...

I really like this one .  It's quite simple, but I think it works OK - I just love these Basic Grey papers!  I've made it as a welcome card for a new neighbour, but think the image would work equally well for a birthday.  I also think it would look stunning used on a scrapbook page, maybe as a background stamp or similar.  It is one of a really usable set by Artemio from Scrapbook Sisters - sadly I didn't buy it at the time, so I'm keeping everything crossed that it's still in stock come payday (although I am aware that the "to buy come payday" is growing by the day!)

The Olive green grosgrain ribbon and pearls are from my stash

Thanks for stopping by, more tomorrow
