Oldie But Goodie Guest Designer

Morning everyone and thank you for dropping by. Today I have a card to share with you that is my very first DT work. I am honoured to be Guest Designer for the month of February over at Oldie But A Goodie. It's a great challenge and I urge everyone to check it out - you'll soon be hooked! They have an amazing Design Team please go and check out their blogs for some great inspiration.

Today's challenge is 'Have A Heart' and I used my wonderful little hedgehog from Penny Black that has sat uninked in my drawer for a couple of years. It was great to have a reason to finally ink him up, now he has had an outing he will be let out more often!

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the sentiment LOTV, the doily heart Joanna Sheen and everything else from my stash.

Thanks for visiting, please leave a trace so I can visit you. x Laurie x
