WOW Time at LCI

Good Morning lovely bloggers I'm back with my second post today as promised
If you are looking for my Oldie But A Goodie DT Post Please Scroll Down

It's TLT time over at
but first I would like to thank everyone who played along with my Winter Blues challenge last week, it was my first time hosting and I was relieved that lots of you wanted to play along with me!! Head over to the main challenge blog to see if you were amongst the Winner or top 3 and also Queen Kerry was looking for some Guest Designers and in the immortal words of Ant & Dec "It Might Be You"

This weeks challenge was chosen my lovely friend Pam and its a favourite of mine
White on White
WOW cards always look totally stunning and I can't wait to see what you all come up with

I've gone right outside my comfort zone with this one LOL  I usually only make square cards but with all that creativity out there (and equipment in my craft room) I was inspired by our very own Lisa who manages to create something totally original every time!!
I've used the fabulous 'Nikki & Buttercup Building A Snowman' and if you didn't get yours yet - hurry up - you only have until tomorrow to get this baby at HALF PRICE. Honestly at half price its worth putting by till next Christmas or better still a fabulous present for someone!
The lamp post, tree and snowflake dies are all Magnolia and the other shapes are nesties so now I've used my Grand Calibur twice it's obviously an essential to any craft room!!
Head over to the LCI blog for lots of gorgeous inspiration from the Ladybugs and for all the details of this weeks challenge. Remember you don't have to use an LCI image to play along but we love it when you do!

Thank you for visiting
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
