Moving Along With Sqidgi Digi

Good Morning blogland, I seem to have got myself in a right old pickle this week! I 've lost a couple of days somewhere along the way, and I had a major catastrophe with the wedding invitations and some Distress ink! They went from pink to brown over night and I had to start that bit all over again. All sorted now and I had my kids on a production line yesterday, cutting, scoring and gluing to make the boxes! They should be all finished by the weekend and I'll post some more pictures.

Thursday means its DT time for me again over at

Check out all the details of the challenge, the faberooni prize on offer and the dynamic DT's inspiration for you on the MAWTT challenge blog.

I don't like to make excuses for my cards but I feel I owe Lisa and Beth one for this! I ran out of days and made this really quickly last night and photographing at night as not done it any favour either!! The image is the super cool '70's Girl from Squidgi Digi and I'm really sorry but I don't feel I have done it justice! All 3 papers aren't as wishy washy as they look here and, they don't look it from that angle, but the buttons are straight!

Thanks for stopping by today to visit me
Happy crafting
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

What are you talking about this! This looks great, very retro and the flower paper is perfect. You know I love your little flowers as well!

Were you not able to rescue the ones that one done by going over them again with the pink? It was really very strange.

Aww, sorry about the Distress Ink Laurie. It's annoying when something unpredictable like that happens!!! and it always happens when you have deadline to meet!!
I absolutely love your card!!! It's got a real 70s feel to it, the colours, patterns and flowers are all perfect! It really does remind me of The Good Old Days!!! Fab wedge shoes (not like the dreadful huge ones they have today though!!!!) Your photograph looks really good! better than my night time photos!!
It's a fab retro card!
Hope rest of your week goes well! ;-)
Hugs Sue xx
