Let's Play Bingo @ HOAC

Hello lovely friends I hope all is well in your worlds and you all have something wonderful planned for this weekend. I should be working as usual, I just hope the sun shines!

As it's the 1st of the month it's time for a new challenge at


and this week the powers that be have chosen to play 


I love a good game of bingo lol I never seen to win though!

This was another commissioned card and this was made under pressure for me (had to come up with it over night and I usually need a week to think about things!) I was convinced I was going to fail but I actually like how it turned out - I hope Ralph and Joy did!
The papers are from the fabulous Maya Designs and I added the diamond pins as it was a diamond anniversary. Some more yummy rolled roses, I do really love rolled roses and some glamour dust on a chipboard 60.

Here's the bingo board
I went from corner to corner with
Flowers, Die Cuts/Punch & Pearls

I hope you will all get to join us, I'd love to see what you make.

Head over to the main challenge blog for some gorgeous inspiration and all the details and the prize that the lovely Mandy's are giving away this  month from their fabulous online store

or if you're in the area call in to the bricks and mortar shop
The Craft and Hobby Store, Heckmondwike
Every time I've been to visit Lisa I like to spend a couple of hours browsing!!

That's all from me folks - back to work!
Once again this is scheduled as I made this at the end of March.

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
