On The Farm @ Oldie But A Goodie

Good morning blogland hope it's not too cold where you are, at least we didn't get any snow here!
It's time for a new challenge at


and this week the lovely Tracy is hosting a fun theme of

On The Farm or In The Garden

I thought I would give my little cow from La La Land a first outing
Not sure if this has turned out as I pictured it in my head but I can live with it! I think my flowers and papers clash a bit!!
The papers are MME, nestie shape for the frame, a stampin' Up border punch and ribbon and flowers are from WOC.
Not sure what sentiment to put on it so its still blank at the minute - something will come to mind - eventually!
 Don't forget to head over to the main challenge blog page to check out some super inspiration from my lovely team mates and for all the details of this weeks prize, sponsored by

Remember you can now use a digital image to join in but something on your card has to be at least 6 months old and you have to tell us what it is in your post

Thats all from me this morning, I have an appointment with the dentist later and I'm not looking forward to that!

Thanks for stopping by today I hope you will find time to join in

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

There is nothing clashing on this gorgeous card Laurie, the colours all match perfectly!! Hope the dentist went well. I have had my eye on one of Vicki's pen storage boxes and have been showing it to hubby so hopefully one day lol. The drawers make me curse like a trooper when they stick or the whole lot comes tumbling down!
