I'm Back!!

Hello blogland, I'm back and boy have I missed you all! My summer season is over and I have no work (apart from running a home) for the next 5 months or so and I should be posting regularly again now on. I still have a fair bit of turmoil going on in my life and I'm expecting the builders to restart renovations soon, but not enough to keep me away from you all I hope. I might nip off for a bit of sunshine as our glorious summer ended with a bang before I was ready LOL

I'm back just in time for a brand new challenge at


and it's everyones favourite...

Anything Goes

I hope I can keep up with my commenting! Its been that long since I tried.
I have several cards that I started for DT work and didn't finish in time so I'm half way through my next few makes. Here is the first.

I just love this fab image from Mo Manning (I love all of Mo's super images) and I've had it half coloured on my desk for months, itching to use it. The papers are digital downloads from Scrap Orchard called Bella Gypsy, I'm addicted to my Magnolia Doo Hickey die So Wrapped tag and the WOC flowers are available from our fabulous sponsor this week

If you haven't been over there yet you are in for a treat! I love this shop!!
Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details and some fabulous inspiration from my teammies - I hope they remember who I am!!

Thank you for visiting me today and for hanging in there with me during my absence, I should be popping by your blogs any time soon.

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

Getting back in the swing of things and DT calls!

Good evening Bloggers just a quick post to let you know I am still alive and I hope to be posting again in the next week! That might not go as easily to plan as I hope but fingers crossed the Mojo makes an appearance in the not too distant future.
It's no secret I've struggled of late but I have been colouring away this week and I've at least a dozen half made cards I never got to finish in time for my DT deadlines so with a little bit of luck and a lot of determination I'll get some finished and posted ASAP!

The main reason for my post is to let you know that 2 of my much loved DT's are having a DT call at the minute ........ here's the details, I hope you want to join us!!
