I'm Back and I need a P!

Hello all my lovely friends I'm back from my holiday in sunny Tenerife, it was the first time I'd been there and with temperatures of 32 degree's every day I would definitely go back - preferably tomorrow!
I should be rested after 10 days of doing nothing but laying in the sun reading and eating and drinking but I feel like I need another holiday to get over that one!!
 Instead I'm back blogging - cos I missed you all!!

I'm back just intime to host a new challenge at


and this week we

Need A P!

Lol, that's lots of things beginning with P on your cards please!

Lets see what you come up with
I've used Posh Shopper Nikki available HERE and coloured her with my Copics and my favourite flower dies from MFT.
Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details and some fabulous inspiration from the Ladybugs.
Thanks for all your lovely comments while I was away, I need to start planning my next holiday now!!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Lollipop Crafts - Happy Birthday
The Crazy Challenge - Hand Made Flowers
One Stop Craft - Anything Goes

It's a bit of a culture shock coming back to the UK Laurie, know the feeling of needing one to get over one but perhaps it won't be too long till the next.

Great card and lovely colours.

Personally I'm Pretty Pissed off.
Previous attemps to Post a comment have been Purloind, but Practice makes Perfect.
I don't Profess to be an exPert but I think this card is Perfect, love the shade of Pink with the white and the way everything is in Perspective and ProPortion. Love the Pale Pink of the Person, stands out Profusely. Very Professional card, not sure why you didn't use Promarkers but maybe it was Personal choice.
Hope you didn't Perspire too Profusely in that heat.
Pleased to have you back.
Ok there are more P's here than I had in my garden this year. lol.

She's back! & even lovelier than ever! Nikki obviously!

Only kidding! Love the card Laurie, you've either been very busy since you got back or you had this little beauty pre-prepared.

Thanks for stopping by my blog & picking up on my 50p post, I was so excited when I read your reply & Alan will be over the moon as both of us thought that it was looking unlikely that he'd be able to complete his set. You really are most generous, thank you so much Auntie Laurie, can't wait till he gets them, you really are the best, Jx
