April Showers @ Oldie But A Goodie

Good Morning lovely people, it will soon be Easter and a nice long weekend for most of you and if anyone is planning a trip to the seaside (especially Hunstanton) don't forget I'm there and please come and say 'Hello'
In typical bank holiday weather, it's about to get colder and wetter - don't know why I'm surprised!

It's time for a new challenge today at

Oldie But A Goodie 

and this week my lovely Lisa is hosting
Knowing what this country's weather is like Lisa has opted for

April Showers

For my card I have finally used one of many Mo Manning images I had to invest in! I'm doing quite well really - that's 3 images in the last 2 weeks that I haven't used before! The daffodils I bought last year from WOC and as I used 2, I bought another pack to replace them!! I know - don't ask!! 
The papers are Echo Park, the punches MS and the die cut cloud is a Magnolia Doo Hickey (sorry Kerry!)
We are sponsored this week by

Who are offering the winner 7 fabulous Digi images

Head over to the main challenge blog to check out all the details and some fabulous inspiration from the DT girls. Don't forget to check if you were amongst the winners last week too!

That's all from me today, I'll be back tomorrow with some really exciting stuff you won't want to miss!!

Thanks for looking 
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

This is so adorable hun, I love the sweet image and the colours are fab. Thanks for your comment on my blog, I have been a bit rubbish at keeping up with my commenting lately. Lisa did tell us when we met her that you get really busy when the sun starts shining, Isn't it annoying when life gets in the way of crafting lol. I hope you manage to find time to use your uninked stamp sometime and try not to work too hard hun. Hope you are well

What a beautiful card. I have many Mo's images also, so I can relate to your comments. And I understand the need to replace the flowers you used! They are just too gorgeous to be without.
