April Showers @ OBAG

Morning Guys, is it just me feeling the cold as I'm back from my holiday or has it gone cold again? Roll on summer or at least some warmer weather!!

I'm here today to tell you about a new challenge at

OLDIE BUT A GOODIE

and this week my lovely teammie Claire has chosen

April Showers

If it stays this cold the showers will be snow showers!!
Here is what I made (mostly before I went away)
Once again I have used the fabulous papers from Stampin Up (Zoe is in my sidebar) I do really love these papers that's twice I've used them in a month!! Amazing for me!!
The image is a super cute Teddy Bo I won last year and until now had never had time to play with.

Pop over to the main challenge blog for all the details of this challenge, some gorgeous inspiration from my teammies and the fab prize that you can win.
Remember to be in with a chance of winning the prize you must use something on your creation that is at least 6 months old and be sure to tell us what it is in your post.

I have a bit going on at home and I've been a dreadful blogger lately, all I can say is sorry and I will try and visit all my lovely friends out there and I will try and enter some challenges - I haven't linked up for ages!!!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

Brilliant card Laurie...perfect colouring and such pretty matching papers!
Last week I was so surprised: a package arrived from England with a stamp which said: missent to Vancouver, BC Canada. When I openend it, it appeared to be a wonderful card and awesome present from you. I'm so glad with them. That inkpad is gorgeous, had never used them before.
Dear Laurie, many thanks for your lovely belated birthday gift!!!
Hugs,

Fabtastic card Laurie, Love the way you have coloured the bears clothes to match the papers but a tad worried as I presume it is a boy, playing with a boat, in PINK boots!!!! lol.
Had a weird holiday, great weather in Spain, Portugal and Canaries but after half an hour in the sun Hubby burnt his head and I have never seen anything like it, the chemist gave him stuff for scalds it was that bad no more gory details so I also had to sit in the shade so no super tan for me.
Been frozen since we got home, heating banging out now as I type.
Thinking of you.
