Special Ladies @ MAWTT

Good Morning blog land I hope all is well in your corner of the world.
Thursday already !! and time for a new challenge at
and this week my lovely friend Pam is hostess with the mostest and she has chosen

'Special Ladies'

If you haven't yet made your Mothers Day card, now's a good time or if you have then as long as your card is for a 'Special' Lady we want to see it!

 I can't keep away from these little round cards lol, my excuse is I made an awful lot of square ones first! I've used Floppy Latte Designs Floral Frame from this weeks sponsor
Stitchy Stamps

I thought the frame was screaming "cut me out" but I think it was saying "only an idiot would spend so long cutting me out"
 It took me ages! 
But....I do like it so maybe it was worth the effort lol
The marble paper was a gift from a Teammie and I painted some chipboard letters with my paint dabbers. The little butterflies are a punch.
Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of this weeks challenge, the prize details and some fabulous inspiration from the DT. The new DT are debuting today so make sure you show them some extra special lurrrve! I'm a little sad as Sandra has decided to step down from the DT for a while, but hopefully she will come back one day soon!

I hope all you ladies out there get totally ruined on Mother's Day - I will be at work as usual!
Thanks for stopping by today, I'll be back tomorrow with my LCI new release reveal!!!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

Fantastic card and even if it took ages to cut out, I would definitly say it was sorth it!
Love the bright colours and the shape, well what can I say...I LOVE it and I am so jealous of you that can use the big dies!!
I thought the letters was felt(hope that is the right word of the fluffy fabric!) and the effect is great :)
Hope you are all good sweetie and that the sun is shining where you are!

This is such a stunning card and cutting those daffodils out was so worth the time and effort it took. The painted letters look great too.
