Golden Oldie @ Oldie But A Goodie

A very good Morning to you all, I'm still tucked up in bed as this challenge starts the day before me LOL I don't do mornings in the winter months anymore - its usually too cold!

It's time for a brand new challenge at
and this week it's my turn to host because I swapped with my buddy Lisa who actually picked us the fantastic theme of

Red And Green Must Not Be Seen!

How cool is that? Love it Lisa!
We have a fab prize up for grabs to the winner and all the details can be found over at the main challenge blog, along with last weeks winners and some gorgeous inspiration from my lovely team mates.

Remenber you must use an image that is STAMPED not digi and it must be at least 6 MONTHS OLD.

I hope you will all find time to join in this week, I love getting my old favourite stamps out to play,
and this was no exception. I just love Magnolia and yet again this is one from last Christmas that never got inked up (I can hear Jill screaming from Norway!) All the die cuts have been done with gold mirri card and sparkle and shine and my new Memory Box wreath looks fab in real life! I can see now that I'm going to be needing some more of these!! The lush papers are also Magnolia and the sentiment LOTV

Thank you for looking and I will be back later with my second DT post of the day
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

Hahaha, did you hear it?!?!
I am totally amazed by the beauty in your card and I love your golden details :)
The little lucia Tilda looks fantastic and I can't belive you haven't used her!
I have two new Magnolia, that even I haven't used yet, so maybe today is the day ;)
I wish more craft hours for christmas Laurie!!
My son said this morning he needed a birthdaycard for tomorrow, so I better get the princess in kindergarden and get to "work" lol
Have a beautiful day sweetie and I hope you have gotten out of bed and grabbed a coffee by now ;)
Warm hugs, Jill
