Getting Sentimental @ MAWTT

Hello again yet another post from me this week - you will all be fed up with me at this rate lol though I hope not!
This time its a new challenge at


The lovely Hazel has halved our workload for the summer holidays and we are going fortnightly till the end of August yeah!! I might be able to keep up!!
This week my lovely lovely friend who I will meeting soon, Debs is hosting and she wants us to get all
(Fabulous theme Debs) make a sentiment your main focal point

Not sure if you can tell but its black and cream, looks a bit white on this picture, it hasn't photographed too well which is a shame as it really is rather nice even if I do say so myself! lol
That fabby sentiment was from  Create With TLC  I was pointed in that direction by the lovely Jill
The shapes were cut with my Nesties, the ribbon is Stampin' Up and the flowers are a mixture of MFT flower trio dies and mini punches and I coloured in the pearls with copics. Really plain and simple and no colouring!!

We are sponsored this challenge by
and all the details can be found at the main challenge blog along with some gorgeous inspiration from my lovely teammies. Remember you have 2 weeks to join in this time!

Thats all from me today, I will be back once more this week with another Crafty Sentiments preview stamp - told you it was busy this week!!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
