Basic grey challenge - A Sketch by Heather

Hi All,  Happy Saturday!!!
Well it's finally arrived!!! my first post with the amazing basicgrey Team!!!!
I am truly honoured that they have allowed little old me to help show this amazing collection off to the blogging universe!! This week we have a terrific sketch by Heather and what a fab sketch it was to work with!! I really enjoyed it and I'm sure I will be using it many times!!
Yes it's another Elisabeth Bell!! I recently managed to find some of Sugar Nellies discontinued Elisabeth bell stamps on E-bay!! how happy was I !!!! I have wanted this little lass for a wee while now!! She is certainly cute!!
The Basicgrey papers I have used are the lovely Kioshi! I love the spring feel in the lavenders and greens!! Although it doesn't feel very springlike as I type this post it sounds as if the roof is coming off!!!
I have coloured this little Lass with my trusty copics! the seam binding is from wildorchid crafts and the flowers are prima! Why not pop over to the basicgrey challenge blog here and check out all the wonderful inspiring creations by the design team!! and don't forget there are some Fabby prizes up for grabs!! this fortnights prize is from the ever generous simon says stamp!
thanks for sharing my exciting news!!!
