Spring Time @ LCI

Good morning lovely people, I hope it's a glorious spring day where you are, it's currently a dark cold February night here as I'm super organised and scheduling!

It is time for a new challenge over at


and this week the very lovely Susan is hostess
and she has chosen


I've used an image from last years Floral Delights release
that I didn't find time to play with until now, I'm not too sure its 'Spring' like but you decide!

I had a lot of fun colouring in that fabulous bench - it took me nearly all night! The image is called Garden Bench Delight and is available HERE. That fabulous ribbon is also available on the LCI website, Kerry sent me a sample a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to use it as my 'Spring Greens'
The 'YOU' is a Cheery Lynn die cut - I love it!

Pop along to the main challenge blog for all the details of this weeks challenge and some amazing inspiration from the Ladybugs

Thank you for stopping by, I hope to catch you later!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

Brilliant card Laurie, love the lush bow and your colouring is superb. I have this image and as I can't paper the bench my poor try at colouring it the card went in the bin and I have not attempted to use it since.
