Charming @ Diva's

OMG! I have been so missing this last two weeks, I'm sorry to all my friends that I haven't been around but so much is happening I'm barely keeping up with myself! And work is a bit mental with all the glorious weather too. I will explain my absence at a later date when things have settled down.

Just by the skin of my teeth I made the new challenge this week at


and the theme of


Here's my offering, honestly these cards are taking longer and longer to make!
At least two weeks for this one LOL
I took this picture really early in the morning and the colours haven't come up very good.

Another of my lovely UNUSED Tilda's this time a special edition from Sir Stampalot, Poppy Tilda. Papers are Maja and flowers from everywhere! My new die cut pinwheel and a charm tied up with some twine and a net bow.

Head over to the main challenge blog to find some really 'Charming' inspiration from my talented teammies and don't forget to check out our fabulous sponsor this week

Short and sweet - sorry!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

Your ears should have been burning at the weekend Laurie because I mentioned you and thought how busy you probably were at the shop with the beautiful weather.

Although I don't do Tilda, I have to say your card is absolutely divine.

Glad you made it by the skin of your teeth Laurie cos we wouldn't want to miss this gorgeous card.

Kathleen said...

I tend to differ, you are tall and sweet. Another stunning creation, cute image and the flower display is fantastic, you should have been a florist.
Well at least the good weather will have kept you out of mischief and make hay (or chips, or candyfloss, or hot dog, or doughnuts, and everything else delicious but unhealthy) while the sun shines.

Sue B said...

Oh Wow!! this is gorgeous Laurie… what a cute Tilda… I'm fussy about my Tildas but she's adorable!! I love the card shape and the embellies are absolutely stunning! Wow… love those scrummy flowers and the tulle detail… it's a corker of a card hun!
I hope all is well with you… I can imagine how busy you are in this weather…
I've made half a card in seven days!! LOL and the exertion of it !!… I looked like I had run a marathon not stuck a couple of pieces of card together!! I've just about adjusted to the heat... so it will probably change now!! hee hee
Oh - I watched the rest of Lipstick Jungle - I can't believe they didn't make another Series!!!!!! It was SO good and I wanted more!!!!!!! I will check out Nashville :-))
Take care my friend
Big hugs
Sue xx
