MAWTT - Not quite!

Good Morning Blog Land, it's time for a brand new challenge at

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES

and this week our lovely Mau is hosting her first challenge since joining the team
and she would like us to get out

In The Garden

I'm presuming that's if it stops raining!

Well I hate to say it but I failed! My life caught me up and I didn't get a chance to make a card for this challenge - but the rest of the fabulous team did so get on over there and check them out!

I have got a card to post though, one that I made a while ago but it doesn't fit with the theme so I didn't want to add it to the challenge blog.
This is the lovely Wryn from Tiddly Inks - isn't she cute! This time I coloured her hair black with just my Copics, last time I used prisma pencils to get the depth. The paper is all furry and gorgeous from Kaiser Craft and the ribbon is part of my winnings from RRR a few weeks ago, great service from the USA and fab choices! Played it safe with a rub on sentiment - too many times I've stamped it after I've coloured it and messed it up!

I hope you will all get a chance to play along at MAWTT this week they are being sponsored by the fabulous
All the details can be found on the main challenge blog.

Thank you to those who stop by and read my drivel!
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
