Moody Blues @ MAWTT

Morning Peeps, hope all's well in your world. I'm knee deep in building renovations and I'm enjoying myself soooooooooooo much! I haven't had this much fun for ages, I'm not sure the builders are as happy as me cos I'm kind of winging it a bit and changing things as we go along but it's gonna be so nice!!!!! (I'm scheduling this post but I'll try and think to take some pictures).
I also got invited to go on holiday with some friends the other day and I'm so tempted as I missed my holiday in January because I was in hospital. I can't think of a good reason not to go so by the time you read this I might have booked my flight!!
Enough of my rubbish, the reason I"m here is a new challenge over at


and this week the lovely Debs is hosting with

Moody Blues

She has given us a fabulous mood board for inspiration and I love the name of the challenge, very clever Debs (even if I'm far too young to remember the Moody Blues!)

This is what I came up with
I finally used some Go Kreate dies that I'd bought ages ago and the fab Joy bingo board stamps for the first time too, the cute little Sassy Cheryl stamp I've had for a while and I love, my usual flowers, quite simple but I like it!
Head over to the main challenge blog to see the fabulous mood board and some gorgeous makes from my talented teammies, they have pushed the boat out this week, you won't be disappointed!!

Right that's it from me today, I'll be busy making tea for the workers, I'll be back tomorrow with a card I made before Christmas and didn't get around to blogging.

Thank you for stopping by
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

This is a lovely card Laurie. I like the blue, not a colour I use very often but you have inspired me to give it a try.
Also wanted to say a huge thank you for the gorgeous card and die that you sent for my birthday. It was such a lovely surprise, so kind of you.

Kathleen said...

Saw this one earlier lol.
Moody Blues, my favorite song from them is Go Now and it looks as if you have Young Lady and you do right, hope you have a fabulous time.
Beautiful card, the shades of blue are stunning as is your colouring, great flower display and I don't mind a game of bingo now and then. You won't remember but when bingo first came out at the sea-side you used to cover your numbers with bottle tops. lol.
