I ♥ Basic Grey and Hero Arts: Day 1

So this week I thought I'd set myself a challenge.
Take 2 companies and 4 products and make some cards.  
My chosen companies are Basic Grey and Hero Arts (of course).
And my products:
Basic Grey: Curio Chip Stickers
Basic Grey: Curio 6 x 6 Pad
Basic Grey: Curio Writers Block

Hero Arts: Sending Smiles
And here is my first card:
Many thanks
The cute postcard is from the Writers Block set. I just love it.  And you get lots in the pack. :)
And in case you were wondering, my distress ink of choice is Walnut Stain.  It's the one I always go for.
Thanks for visiting, check back tomorrow for Day 2.
