BasicGrey Challenge 50-sizzling summer...

Hi! my card today is for our "Sizzling Summer" challenge
over at the BasicGrey Challenges blog,
 where we are all missing our very lovely Heather,
truly hope you are feeling much better soon,xx. 

 For my card i have used the very
lovely BG lauderdale-sun glow paper
and tried to use it as a backing paper...
scene-a hill but not sure if the little hen looks like 
she is in mid air lol!!

 I really love this image she is Tilda with broom,
i have used VersaColor cubes to colour and on the cream
shrink plastic for the hen too.
I used a Marvy Pen to write the welcome sign
on the shrink plastic and punched a couple of holes before shrinking.
My lovely Mumma did come to mind as i was making
this card as she is Italian,she grew up with lots of farm animals
(cleaning too :0)
in a small village where we have been lucky enough to
spend summers with Soph and George too.
I love the stories of her childhood and remember
lots of Sunday mornings sat on her bed listening when i WAS young. 
My Grandma(Nonna) will be 100 on April 13th 2012
so we hope to go over for the Birthday celebrations.
sorry i have now been going on too much.

 We love to see your creations over at BG,
we have a fab prize again

 from the lovely Simom Says Stamp Store

thank you so much for stopping by,
have a lovely day.hugs all,Lou.xx
