Hey Cutie a New DT for Me!

Hello peeps I'm back with my good news, I got a new job!! 
I start a brand new 6 month stint on the fabulous Design Team at


I'm excited can you tell? 
I thought it was time for me to push the boat out 
and make more than one card a week for a while lol, I hope I can keep up!!
I'm starting off with a super theme

Hey Cutie!

Here's my first official offering as a shiny new Totally PaperCrafts DT member!

I've had this little Mo Manning cutie coloured in and sat on my desk for so long she's virtually a teenager now! The fab Echo Park papers are fairly new even though I'm not supposed to be buying any more papers LOL and the thing I'm most pleased with, is the sentiment. I couldn't find the right one anywhere so I made my own on the PC and I'm chuffed to bits how it turned out. If I can work out how to do it, I'll happily email it to anyone who wants it. The flowers are my favorite things dies with brads in the centre.

We have a fabulous sponsor this week
Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of the challenge, the fantastic prize on offer and lots of super cute inspiration from my new teammies.

That's it from me this week, 2 cards in consecutive days means I need a lie down!!
Thank you for stopping by and for all your lovely comments.
My recovery continues and I should be back fighting fit really soon.

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

Creative Craft 2 - Recipe

Impressive Laurie, a 100% increase in production and no drop in standard! What a cute image and a most impressive sentiment - aren't you clever. Sorry I missed this one Fri, I was in Ab at Alan's flat. Remember how I was so chuffed that I redid the sealant around his bath, ah leaks and there's now damp in the bathroom and his bedroom, guess I'm not so clever! Jx
