Photo Inspiration @ MAWTT

A jolly good morning to all you lovely people, while I'm writing this (scheduled) it's a glorious sunny day I do hope it's lasted! I hope you are all well and happy. I'm on a mission to get ahead with all my DT work and so far so good.
I'm here today to tell you about a new challenge at


and this week my lovely friend Pam is hosting, she gave us this pretty picture to work from so its a 

Photo Inspiration

You can interpret it how you wish, colours, spring, sweets etc

After my mishap of posting my DT card a week early a few weeks ago I'm taking no chances and putting the inspiration picture first!! I don't have to worry about Janice peeking, this was sent to her for her birthday so I know she has it now. Here's my take on the challenge

Ummmm, my green looks a bit darker on this picture, I don't remember it being that dark. I used some giant nesties to cut out the card shape and the cutest little Mo Manning image. Inside the greeting says ' Wish Big' lol just like her knickers!! I'm in love with my PTI 'birthday' die, I just wish they weren't so expensive to mail stuff here. My usual flowers only this time I experimented with air brushing them different colours. I've only had my Copic airbrush kit about 5 years and not used it till I did these white flowers pink and green. It's sooooooooooo cool, I want to airbrush everything!!!

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of the challenge and some gorgeous inspiration from my lovely talented teammies.
I'll be back tomorrow. I'm going to the NEC on Saturday if anyone wants to meet up, I'm already meeting some lovely friends again who I haven't seen for ages.
Thank you for stopping by
Love 'n Hugs Laurie xx

Hi Laurie what a fab card love that cute image. Your air brushed flowers look fab. Susan xx

Christine L said...

Ooh love this fabulous creation Laurie... gorgoues layout, image and colouring... and I agree about that PTI die... I've just had some stuff mailed to my friend in NY for her to send to me... only so I avoid the dreaded customs!! But somehow I didn't see this die or it would have been in my basket!

Love the airbrushing too... you really are getting adventurous using your 'new (only 5 year old) stuff!! hehe

Big Hugs
