New Challenge @ LCI

Good Morning my lovely friends, I'm so sorry you must think I've abandoned you all! I haven't been near my computer for the last week or so as it was busy busy busy at work again for the Bank Holiday, and can you believe it sunshine again - two consecutive bank holiday's, almost unheard of in this country!!
I"m so behind with all my comments I'm probably going to get the sack from all my DT positions! If I don't I might have to reconsider what I take on this summer as I don't seem to be very efficient at the moment!

I did however find time to make something for the new challenge at


where the theme is a fabulous

Colour Wheel

I only just got this finished in time by the skin of my teeth!
And to make things worse all my scheduled posts that I got so far ahead of myself have been posted now - lol now it will be a challenge!!

Here's my card for this week
This was my third attempt! Not a lot seemed to be going right before this one.
I've used the fantabulous Jack and Robyn Gotcha cling stamp available HERE and don't forget all stamps are on Special offer, Kerry has reduced them so much you would be mad not to buy them and some for presents while you can pick up such a bargain!
The papers are from the LOTV pads last year and I'm having a 'phase' on shaped cards at the minute! Flowers are WOC and I used puffy snow to give some texture.

Here's the colour wheel
You just need to pick two opposite colours to play along.

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details and some beautiful inspiration from the Ladybugs as well as all the information you need regards the prize on offer.

I have another busy day ahead and tonight I'm off to The Theatre Royal Norwich to see 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' and no I'm not dressing up!!!

I promise to try and comment on your blogs this week instead of just looking!!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

I'd like to enter the following challenges
