MAWTT - Use 4 Items Beginning with L

Hello! I hope you are all well today... I can't believe it's Thursday again already... and the turn of Team B over at 

and our lovely Hazel L is hosting a theme of

'Use 4 items beginning with L'

it doesn't have to be a card... as long as your creation follows our theme....I'm looking forward to seeing what you can create with a Lorra Lorra L's ! oh and please can you list your 4 items beginning with L... just in case we can't figure out what they are... thank you!

I found this lovely image of Lillie Langtry and decided to make a Mother's Day Card with it...

(Lillie Langtry, Lemon, Lilac, Lace,)

Image: Lillie Langtry
Papers: Prima - 'Meadowlark'
Butterfly: Martha Stewart Punch
Sentiments: Freebie with Mag
Lace, Charm, Ribbon, Flowers, Tiny Gems... from Stash

I hope you can hop on over to our main site at MAWTT and see the rest of the Team's L....ovely creations this week... Lots of inspiration for you!!

Well we've actually had some sunshine here in Manchester Uk this week!! Yay... so lovely to see the sun! we have quite a few flowers out in the garden... the Blackbird is singing his little heart out every morning now... so it really does feel as if Spring is just around the corner! can't wait until it's warm enough to sit out in the garden! ;-)
Not too long until the weekend... can't wait for Mr Selfridge again... it's getting so exciting!!
Take Care and I will catch up with you soon!
Love and hugs
