Happy Easter @ OBAG

Hello again folks you can tell it's almost time for another Bank Holiday as the weather has got cold!! I've been a bit absent as I've been working for a change, not got back in that routine yet!

Today it's time for a new challenge at


Francesca is hosting with the theme

Happy Easter

My card is a real Oldie but goodie as I actually coloured this image in last Easter to use, but when I went to match it to my papers - it didn't! lol Not one to throw anything away I put it to one side and low and behold I just happened to buy papers that were a perfect match during the course of the year lol !!

 I love this cute Teddy Bo image, I can remember the card I made with it last year! This time I decided to roll out the rolled roses again, it's ages since I made any (no doubt you will be seeing them regularly again for a while now as I enter another phase!) I made them with Stampin' Up card and they really hold together nicely. The Swirls are Cheery Lynn and the papers MME that I bought sometime during the last year.

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details plus news on the prize and some fabulous inspiration from the girls. Francesca has given it a fab new makeover and we have a couple of new members to our little DT family.

Remember to use something on your card that is at least 6 months old to be eligible for the prize and don't forget to tell us what it is in your post.

That's all from me, thank you so much for your lovely comments and support and hopefully I will have a bit more time to blog this next week.

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
