Basic Grey Challenges Back to School or Good Luck

Morning everyone - what a miserable wet morning it is here in London.  I've not had a chance to make a card all week as we've been looking after Harry and getting him sorted, great news that he's home and so much improved.  Found out yesterday that he doesn't need another op on his hand - he just won't have a knuckle on his little finger! He's getting more and more mobile all the time too, which is more good news!
Onto my card for today, I made this last night!  The theme over at Basic Grey Challenges this fortnight is to make a Back To School or Good Luck card. I thought it would be a quickie, but took ages cutting out the individual hexagons from all my Basic Grey paper scraps - most of them are from the Green at Heart papers!  I used this fabulous special edition die from Simon Says  Stamp for the background mat and a Die-namics die set for  the larger hexagons with the lettering.

I was looking for a button to finish it off and found this shamrock button - perfect for the theme!!
 As always, our wonderful sponsor, Simon Says Stamp is offering one lucky winner a fab $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Superstore

(Please note: This is a voucher code that entitles the winner to a $25 saving off their order in Simon Says Stamp, P+P charges will still apply unless the conditions are met to earn free P+P, please check here if you would like to see these conditions)

I hope to get some more crafting time in over the weekend - what better thing to do on a rainy day!
