Monochromatic @ Diva's

Hello again and it's day 2 of my marathon posting!
This should be a scheduled post and I should be trekking around the Lake District, I've never been before so looking forward to the great scenery. I just hope it stops raining!

It's time for a brand new challenge at


and the lovely Rebekah want us to go all


I've had this Magnolia stamp sat waiting to be coloured up for sooooo long so this was the perfect chance to uses her!
And I've been desperate to use my funky feathers since I first saw Rebekah use them, they are from Prima and me being me (unable to part with most of my stash) I had to split them up to use some! The papers are Tim Holtz (something else I struggle to part with) and the postcard stamp is from LOTV.

We have a fabulous sponsor this week

If you are not familiar with the shop I suggest you head over there now! You won't be disappointed. All the details of this weeks challenge, the prize and some fabulous inspiration from the Diva's can all be found on the main blog page HERE

On a sad note, Anita has decided to step down from the Diva's DT
but fear not we shall all continue to stalk her in blogland.

That's all from me today, I'll be back tomorrow with my MAWTT post.
Thank you for looking
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

I'll try and link up to the following challenges when I can get Internet:
