Cute & Cuddly @ MAWTT

Good morning my lovely blog friends, I am still around just tied up with work for a couple of weeks and made even busier by the lovely weather! All will return to normal in a week or so and I will be back to visit your gorgeous blogs!

 It's time for a brand new challenge today at
and this week the uber talented and very gorgeous Debs is in charge and she would like us all to be


Thank goodness I got ahead with my DT cards else I'd have to be sitting a couple out now! I made this a few weeks ago and I finally used a Teddy Bo image - something else that has been waiting patiently on my desk! The papers are MME, the flowers WOC and a Doo Hickey die cut border. I love pink and brown so this is now one of my favourite cards!
 and a little bit of the inside too

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of this weeks challenge and for the details of the prize up for grabs from this weeks sponsor

Don't forget to check out some fabulous inspiration from my lovely teammies while your there, you are in for a treat this week as every card is beyond beautiful!

That's all from me, I'm off to work now
