Hello lovely people, I'm all in a tiz this week flying around here there and everywhere and I don't know if I'm coming or going!! I'm so behind and I have no chance of catching anything up this side of Christmas. Apart from a couple of cards I've made weeks ago and scheduled, I will be absent for a while. I have to apologise to all my DT blogs for not being around. It's all about to get even busier at the crack of dawn tomorrow when I head off to EuroDisney with my Son, via lunch in Paris, from there I get the train to Frankfurt then on to Eisenach on Friday evening to meet my Husband and friends. We fly home late Sunday evening then Monday morning I head off to Leicester overnight to get my Mums shopping and chores done before I get whisked off (and this is the part you all feel sorry for me) to Barbados!! OMG! I'm so excited though goodness knows when I'll get to fit in my Christmas shopping/wrapping/card writing etc.....
Enough excitement for now, its time to get on with the new challenge at
and this week lovely Tracy is hosting with a theme of
Let It Snow
This is what I came up with
Now I know what you are all thinking....this is a fairly new image and I'm supposed to be using things at least 6 months old for this challenge - well I have, the paper is from last Christmas, and my Magnolia Pointsettia die I've had at least 1 year if not more and this is the first time I've used it!! Shame on me as I'm really loving that flower. It's all been glittered and curled using Aileens glitter snow that I got at the NEC, I glittered the Tim Holtz Snowflakes edger die cut too and they look fab in real life. This goes to show that you can all enter our fab challenge as long as something on your card is at least 6 months old and you tell us what it is!
Be sure to check out the main challenge blog for all the details and this week we have a fabulous new sponsor
while you're there check out the fabulous inspiration from the Goodie Girls.
Before I go I just want to share what was delivered
to me last Friday on my 29th wedding anniversary
29 gorgeous red roses!! Each year I get the relevant number, it's certainly making up for the early years when he was being a cheapskate!!
That's all from me today - I'm off to pack!!
Thanks for looking
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges
