Flower Power @ Oldie But A Goodie

Well guys can you believe the sun shone all day yesterday but no doubt today will be another very soggy morning - lovely weather for Ducks - we're having! 
Is anyone else as hot as me or is just my age! I have never been so humid and grumpy!

Anyway that's far too much information for a Tuesday morning! 
I'd like to thank everyone for all the fantastic entries we had to the last challenge and today I'm here with a fabulous new challenge at


and this week Francesca is hosting with a fab theme of

Flower Power

Groovy baby or what! We all love flowers don't we?
Once again out came the flower trio dies from MFT they really are one of MFT! lol The spotty paper is from my stash and didn't have a name and the red check is Stampin' Up. I printed out the sentiment on my computer and used a MFT label die to cut it out.
The fab little image is from this weeks sponsor, 
the mighty Bugaboo
It's called 'Ladybug Stack' and I LOVE IT!

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of this challenge and some gorgeous inspiration from the team, the girls have done a great job this week!

Remember to qualify for the prize you must use something that is at least 6 months old and remember to let us know what it is in your post!

That's all from me today, I will be back later in the week with a little candy for my lovely followers - I can't believe I have so many and I want to thank you!!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

You have made a lovely card, but if you don't want to enter our DT call you have placed it in the wrong linky. It's a step down from the DT call. It would be sad to see you miss out in the prize drawing.
Love n hugs
