What A Guy

Well hello again lovely people, first things first, I have to apologise for not being around for the last few days - we were so so busy at work, I think everyone headed to the coast this last weekend and I haven't had 5 minutes to craft, blog or comment! And as we are heading into another bank holiday weekend I still might struggle to get to you - please don't think I've forgotten you - as Arnie said "I'll be back"!

I'm here today with a DT card for a brand new challenge at


and we have EVERYONES favourite theme

Anything Goes

Perfect for me as I had made this card for my BIL a few weeks ago and not got around to bloggin it!

The cute little teddie is LOTV and I've had him an age! The papers are Kaiser Craft and the black spotty one is like velvet, coloured with Copics and the star border and the star tag are Doo Hickey dies from Magnolia, 

and inside (with the removable tag on the front out)

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of this weeks challenge and to see what super prize is up for grabs, while you're there check out the fab creations from the DT for your inspiration.

That's all from me as I have to dash off to work again.
I hope you're all enjoying the sunshine

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

Another stunner Laurie!
I haven't been so much around either, been outside with the rest of Norway to get some really needed D vitamins! The weather was so lovely this weekend, but today it is quite chilly wind even tho the sun is shing. So hopefully I will get ahead of my self for my DT work as I just hate to be making cards in the last minute..
Enjoy your day sweetie and don't work to hard my friend

Well once again blogger is off the boil and not showing you on my dashboard, good job I stayed up listening to Radio 2 programme on the Queen, writing this with tears in my eyes, I don't care, I am a big fan of 'there'll always be an England' the Queen, England's green and pleasant lands, Rule Brittania, hot dogs, candy floss, knotted handkerchiefs and lovely beaches, and not to mention, candy floss and hot dogs and ice cream. We just need to get in control.
Fabulous hand made cards, love this, one of my fav LOTV stamps, and great to see it in different colours.
Brilliant all round card.
