Feeling Floral @ OBAG

Good Morning to you all, spring is on its way and this week over at


the lovely Helen is hosting and she is

Feeling Floral

I hope you get a chance to join in and play along with us.
My interpretation is a gorgeous flower display, one of my favourite things!

I've used a cute little Marianne stamp I bought last summer and didn't get around to using and my papers are a gazillion years old from MME, these are the last few pages in the pad but I'm sure knowing me I'll buy another to replace it soon!
The flowers are from (mainly I think) WOC and the cute little bike charm (yes I know I used some of my treasure!) is from the Ribbon Girl I think!

Christine if you're looking, I cut my card on the fold and then cut out a frame with the same shape to place over the top of it so no folds are visible.

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of the challenge and and prize and some beautiful floral inspiration from my teammies.

Remember to be in with a chance of the prize 
you have to use something on your card at least 
6 months old and be sure to let us know 
what it is in your post.

We are currently holding a DT call 
if you would like to join us at OBAG

That's all from me, a big thank you for stopping by, I'll be back tomorrow with my DT make for Diva's, I can't believe how quickly these weeks come around!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
