Happy Birthday MAWTT

Helloooo it's a massive celebration today as MAWTT is 3 years young! I'm so excited, Hazel has been working hard behind the scenes to bring you lots of sponsors and lots of prizes! So much is happening we have decided to hold it over 2 weeks so head over to


for this weeks challenge of

Happy Birthday 

and join in the celebrations!
All the details can be found there and some fabulous inspiration.
The DT are showcasing different sponsors over the 2 weeks and this week my card features one of the many sponsors, Saturated Canary and this image is called Belle
I've made this for my Great Niece who will be 18 soon, this is from her Grandma who asked me to make her a card. The papers are MME and all the die cuts are Doo Hickey's, flowers from WOC and coloured in Copics. Lisa.....the 18 was cut on my Cricut!

Don't forget to visit the main challenge blog for all the prizes that are up for grabs and details of how you can win. Remember this challenge will be over two weeks and next week I'll be showcasing a different sponsors images.

That's all from me today, thank you all those who left lovely comments about my twins - Rebekah really made me laugh!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

Beautiful card Laurie, so pretty and girlie your great-niece will love it.
Thanks for the suggestion hun, RAM is fine as it's a 6wk old 8g lappy that I stupidly bought because I liked it being pink and it has loads of RAM, duh won't make that mistake again, taking a hammer to it seems like a fab idea right now lol
hugs Mandy xx

Janice said...

Hi Laurie, just stopping by to say a HUGE THANK YOU for your donation to my Race for Life. I really appreciate your support & was so pleased things turned out to be ok for you at the end of last year. Bet you can hardly sleep tonight with your little girl coming home to Mum tomorrow. It will be great for you all to have her back in the UK. Hope she brings you back a stick of rock - make that bamboo! Jx

My name is Cindy said...

This is a gorgeous card - the image is just great for teens!! Unfortunately it cannot be considered for our monthly prize draw because it is linked to too many challenges, we only allow 5 including ours. Thank you for joining us and hope to see you in the next challenge Cindy, TioT.
