Buntings & Banners @ Oldie But A Goodie

Hello again lovely blog friends, have you all gone back to work and normality after all the celebrations?
I've had to work through it all so I'm hoping for a little quieter time in the next few days, and hopefully I'll get to catch up with you all!

I'm back with a DT make for the fabulous

OLDIE BUT A GOODIE

and this time the very lovely (who I hope to soon meet) Claire is hosting and she has given us a fabulous theme of

Bunting or Banners

well this is perfect for me as I'm addicted to my Doo Hickey pennant die and can't resist using it at every available opportunity!
I'm also addicted to cutting out numbers on my Cricut lol I've only had it 3 years and never used it and now I've used it 3 times in a week!! The fabby papers are Bo Bunny Ad Lib, I love the bright colours, the brown card is from Stampin' Up, the image of course is Birthday Clyde from the amazing Bugaboo who are this weeks sponsor


You can find all the details of this challenge and some faberooni inspiration from my teammies over on the main challenge blog,

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, I'll be back tomorrow with my Diva's DT card

Thanks for stopping by
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

Its gorgeous Laurie, love your bunting and cute image. I went through a stage of cutting large letters and numbers on my cricut but then got lazy. Will have to start it up again. Hard to keep the sticky on my cutting board though:( Thanks for joining us at Stampalot this month.

Claire said...

Love, love, love your card Laurie - the bunting is just gorgeous and such fabby colours too! Great image - this card would be perfect for a little boy. Hope we get to meet up very soon! Hugs and love, Claire xxx

Mary J said...

Brilliant, Laurie! Love the layout and how you used those papers too!

Kathleen said...

Brilliant card, love the image and the papers, the brightness (oops just spotted a typing error, don't think you would be too pleased if I'd put brightmess,lol) of it all.
And I do like the banner too and the way you have punched the holes to thread the string through.

Kathleen said...

Me again, just read your comment on my posting and I have to say that I think you are right. We pay £9 a month and get 2 check up's and 1 cleaning FOC then have to pay for treatment, with supposedly a discount? Mine will not be a white filling either. To be quite honest there is nothing wrong with the filling that is in there, it is just that I broke a bit of the tooth (on a mint) so I think that a smoothing of the tooth would be just as good.
Thanks so much for your comment.
