Lilac Bunnies for Oldie But A Goodie

A very good morning to all my lovely friends out there in blog land, we've just had a very soggy weekend and I hope it's dried up a bit for you, wherever you may be.

It's time for a new challenge at
but before I go into the details, I'd like to thank everyone who joined us for the last challenge, the winner and top 3 can be found on the main challenge blog page.
This week our blog leader, the very talented Francesca is hosting, 
and she would like to see some

Easter Wishes
Here is what I came up with
I've used a LOTV image that was stamped and sent to me last year in a RAK from my good friend Lisa, lol I can't believe how long it's taken me to use it! Once again I've used MFT die cut flowers, I love these as much as my mini round cards lately!  The border and swirl are Doo Hickey dies. I dusted off the brads and ribbon from my stash. Image is coloured with Copics and Nesties used for the shapes.
A little peek inside again
Another obsession is decorating the inside, I'm hoping it will help use up the mountain of paper which I can't stop buying!
Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of this challenge, the prize you can win and some inspiration from my lovely teammies.

Remember the new rules state you can use a digital image but don't forget to tell us what is old that you have used on your card.

I'm away at my Mums for a couple of days, so I apologise if I haven't been around much, what with work and getting ready for the start of our summer season there isn't enough hours in the day!

Thank for visiting
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
