Moving Along With A Blast From The Past!

Well Hello blogland!! Did you think I'd abandoned you all? lol It's been so long since I managed to post anything with the craziness that has been Christmas!
I hope you all had a fabulous time over the holiday and that some lovely crafting goodies found their way into your stockings, I know they did mine, and I got lots of storage as I'm determined to sort out my crafty chaos this year! I'd like to thank everyone who sent me gorgeous hand made cards, you will laugh to know that I've already started my Christmas cards for next year so I don't run out like this year!

I'm back today with a brand new challenge over at
and the lovely Hazel is hosting with a theme of
Step Back In Time
Like the last challenge, this challenge will run for two weeks to give us all a bit of a break over the New Year holiday and a chance to play with all the kids new toys!
We are sponsored this week by the fabulous 

We were all given an image from the fantastic 60's Combo Pack and had a lot of fun with this I can tell you! And as it was Christmas we didn't even have to colour these babies in.....they were pre coloured - perfect when you're in a rush!
There are some fabulous new images over in the shop go check them out when you have a minute, you won't be disappointed!
You can't tell very well from this picture but this DCWV spotty card is all glittered and gorgeous! The punched border is a Martha. Head over to the main Challenge blog for all the details of the challenge and while you are there check out the fabulous makes from the DT. And guess what the DT got for Christmas....... A brand spanking new member!! Allow me to introduce SANDRA please head over to her blog and show her some love!

That's about all from me, probably until next year (lol) as I'm working everyday till January 4th I will try and get a little something posted as I'm approaching my first Blogaversary and I want to come up with something special for my followers!

I'd like wish you all a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
