Hazel's Sketch @ MAWTT

A very good morning to all my lovely blog friends. Can you believe it's March already! 
I'm back with my 3rd day in a row post! Its DT time again today at
and this week the big boss lady Hazel is in charge and she has given us this lovely little sketch to work with.
Now I liked this one as its quite simple and you can have a lot of fun with it adding your own take on all the deets!
I've been dying to use this little piggy 'Pickles' since I first saw him on my friend Jill's blog and I finally got around to him! He is by FairyDoodler at Teddy Bo and available HERE.
Coloured with my beloved Copics, the papers are new from DCWV, and I'm obsessed with these MFT flower dies at the minute!
I'm obsessed with decorating the inside too!
Not that you can tell from these pictures but I assure you the inside and outside ARE the same colours!
I hope you noticed - not a mini round card all week!

We are sponsored this week by the fabulous

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of this weeks prize and some fabulous inspiration from the DT.

Thank you for stopping by and to those that do, for commenting. I love reading them!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
