Jack & Oliver

Good morning my lovely blogging friends, I hope you all enjoyed the lovely weather we had, it seems like we have skipped a season and gone straight into winter here! I'm not sure what happened, it was hot and sunny most of last week and I blinked and now its so windy, wet and cold I can't believe it! At least I can catch up on my sleep!

It's time for another challenge for me at
Before I go into this weeks challenge I'd like to thank everyone who entered last time, you certainly are a talented bunch. Check the main blog to see if you were a winner. 
This week my blogging buddy Lisa is hosting, now those of you who know Lisa will know she is an avid camper or Glamper, as last week she had electricity and wifi! 
Her theme this week is
The Great Outdoors
Head over to the main challenge blog to check all the details of the new challenge and to see what our lovely girls have created for your inspiration.

For my card I've used my favourite LCI stamp 'Frog Chasing Jack' I just love this little man and the look on the frogs face!! The papers are from Basic Greys 6x6 pad 'Oliver' which I think are a great match to the image. I've kept it really simple as it's for a boy, no bows or gems.

I hope you will be able to join us for this super challenge, Lisa has donated this fabulous prize to the lucky winner
A great prize, perfect for all those 'where do I start'  and so hard to make mens cards.
Remember to be in with a chance of winning You must use a rubber stamp (not a digi) and it must be at least 6 months old 

Thank you for stopping by today to have a look at what I'm up to, I'd like to say a warm hello to all my new followers  and I'd like to remind you that you still have plenty of time to enter my Birthday candy, just click on the link at the top of the page.

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
