Things With Wings @ Oldie But Goodie

A very good morning to you all, well I don't know about where you are but it was dry here all weekend. It rained again yesterday though so back to normal now!
My little girl flew off on her travels again last week and after a few days exploring Hong Kong she has now moved on to China where she'll spend the next 6 weeks! I'm crossing off the days till she gets home safe! She assured me lots of people go travelling on their own!

I'm back today with a brand new challenge over at


and this time my gorgeous friend Debs is in charge and would like to see

Things With Wings

This was great for me as this little stamp has been sat waiting her turn for so long on my desk I could hear her foot tapping!

Isn't she fab? Its Pippi Longsocks from Sugar Nellie and I love her! My papers are Basic Grey Kissing Booth and once again I used my MFT flower die. I actually followed the sketch over at The Sugar Bowl and really enjoyed making this, its ages since I followed a good sketch! Coloured with Copics and the plain cardstock is Stampin' Up which I got from Zoe (link in my sidebar)

We are sponsored this week by

and all the details can be found on the main challenge blog along with some fabulous inspiration from my lovely team mates.

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 today, thank you for stopping by

Love 'n' Hugs 
Laurie xx

Judith said...

Aw love this little cutie - your colours are gorgeous - glad your daughter is safe and sound. I know its a real worry, my eldest two both did travelling in Europe before they went to uni. My daughter was no problem just travelled around and kept in touch all the way but Matthew oh I shudder to think of it now - he lost something in every city in Europe! -phone charger then the phone,money,wallet, bank card, bag! - I was never away from collect calls and having to wire him money then he ended up sleeping on the beach at a rock concert - can't say he's much better now!! I think girls are far better than boys at this sort of thing! hugs Judith x

Hi Laurie, what a gorgeous card! Love your flowers and the swirl.

I'm sure your daughter will be fine, but I can totally empathise I worry just letting my Emily go off to school - so I think I'm loads worse than you!! And what I'll be like when she's grown, a nightmare probably and she will no doubt divorce me!!!!!!
