I'm An Oldie But A Goodie!

Hello Bloggers thank you for stopping by today to visit, I have some fantastic news that I've been bursting to keep to myself! I was asked to join the
And I am beside myself to have the opportunity to dust off my delicious stamps and join such a fabulous group of ladies. Trust me I have enough (unused) old stamps to keep me on this DT forever!

For my first contribution the fabulous Tracy has chosen the theme
' Say It With Flowers' and as it's my Mums birthday next week it was easy to combine the two events (thanks Tracy for easing me gently into this!) This fabulous prize is up for grabs so make sure you head over to the main challenge blog to see what the talented DT have made for your inspiration
For my card I have been itching to try using acetate after seeing Carol make some fantastic cards lately. The only thing I will say is maybe I needed a thicker variety of acetate as it's a wee bit wobbley! The stamp is from Whipper Snapper and it must have been in my drawer for at least 3 years uninked! Yikes! The flowers are all from Prima and the swirl is a Magnolia Doo Hickey Die. Brads, gems and flat back pearls are all from my stash as was the chipboard.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Stamptacular Sunday - Mum's The Word
Pear Tree Designs - Free For All
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew.- For Mom
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Thank you for looking and to those that do for commenting and I hope to see you all over at Oldie But A Goodie to see what you have created for the 'Say It With Flowers' challenge

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie x
