Moving Along With Hazels Sketch

Good Morning bloggers,  albeit blustery and blowy it's perfect weather for my hot flushes lol! The wind is cooling me down nicely thank you very much.

Its Thursday already and time for a new challenge over at

What an amazing lot of entries we had last week, there were some fantastic ideas for handmade flowers that I can't wait to try out. Head over to the main challenge blog to see if you were a winner or top 3.

This week our Head Mover Alonger Hazel has provided us with a super sketch to follow
and we have a fab sponsor this week, the megalicious
They have an amazing selection of goodies on offer and even better a fab sale on too.
Check out the main challenge blog for all the details of this weeks prize and for some fabulous inspiration from my super talented team mates.
For my card I've used one of my many (unused) Stampin Bella images that I loved so much when I bought them, and still do! So many stamps, so little time! I thought this would be great as a Passing Your Driving Test card.
The arrows were cut from a cuttlebug die, the ovals from a nestie and the flowers from little punches.
I like to mix it up a little and not make all my cards with 3D flowers now and again. The sentiment is SU.

Thanks for looking and to those that do, for the lovely comments

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

Hi Laurie... Lovely card.... love all those little buttons that finish it off so well!

Know what you mean about the hot flushes... though we've just been away to a spa that did a heat/ice experience... think I didn't need the heat bit.. Could do that on my own!! hehe

We're hoping to meet up with Emma from CES on Saturday... if she's up to it, such a shame you couldn't make it! Ah well, always another show...
