Something Cute @ Diva's

A very good morning to you, I'm back again today with another DT card to show you, this time


are looking for 

Something Cute

I have just the thing! My lovely Tilda!
I really don't get to play with my Magnolia stamps anywhere near enough and I hope to change that starting from NOW!
When I was looking through my Magnolia stamps deciding which to use I was horrified to find out I hadn't used ANY of last Christmas's stamps yet!! 
I've just bought a pile of this Christmas's too!
This is Tilda with a Holly Garland from last years release and watch this space for one of the new stamps ASAP!! The papers are also from last Christmas from Magnolia and most of the flowers are from WOC, the gorgeous white curly spirals were sent to me by my lovely talented friend Jill. 
I'd been trying to get them everywhere and couldn't, then just after Jill sent them to me The Ribbon Girl got them in stock! I have no intention of running out now -  EVER!!

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of this challenge and some gorgeous inspiration from the Diva's.
We have a fabulous sponsor this week

That's about all from me today, thank you for visiting me and thank you for the comments you leave.  I'm off to my Mums again later and I'll go to the NEC on Friday from there as its just down the road.  Hope to meet you all there!!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

Hi Laurie - another fabulous card. Super cute image, perfectly coloured, and I agree those flower twirly thingies are just perfect.


Kathleen said...

Stunning, classy and a fabulous card... hate it, can you tell,lol
Papers are really lovely and all the embellishments are stunning.
Please put her a nose and mouth on, poor kid can't breath and I think these must have been designed by a man so the lovely images can't talk either... little girls should be seen and not heard!
