Octopi my heart......

Image- Octopi my heart from Tiddly Inks.
Papers- Echo Park Pirates Life.
Afternoon all!!

Its Fab Friday over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and this is my totally cute make for it.Oh how I love under the sea stuff when the weather gets warmer and it feels all summery, I just adore it!

I made the cardbase and shapes in my silhouette software. I LOVE doing this because it meant I could fill the shapes with my yummy Echo Park Pirates Life digital papers. And of course, because my octopi were .png's I just added them right on top and then added the sentiment too!! sooo cute!! and so easy to print and cut all the layers for my card!

I coloured them up and then added a little sparkle pen to the octopi because they just needed to be sparkly and cute!! he he he!!!

Thank you so much for popping in on me,
huge hugs and love,

Stamp- Wee Stamps Leon.
Papers- MME Boy Crazy.
Morning everyone!!

I have had the most lovely long weekend, lots of playing outside with my little man and his friends and a couple of them really love little cars so for my make this week I just had to use my Wee Stamps Leon.

The cute little sentiment comes in the yummy scrummy MME Boy Crazy pad.I love this little paper pad so much, it full of different themed papers perfect for those little car/robot/space and travel themed cards.

And of course.....that DieNamics Blueprints 24 set had to pop into my big shot again!! I love the little layers pieces it gives me and oooh the little sprinkles dies are fabulous! I cut them with my scraps of paper left and then gave them a little layer over the top with glossy accents to make them look like sequins.

Right, time to get myself into gear this morning. I have to admit that after such a lovely long weekend I am struggling with the Scott and Mo going to work/school this morning. Its going to be a quiet day for this mamma :( 

Thankyou for popping in, hugs Lou xxx

Burnt Sienna, Caramel and Sandstone.
Warm grey 5, Olive Green and Pear Green.
Morning all!

Well, I've been a busy little Lou already today!! I've woofer walked and popped Mo to the car boot sale to spend his pocket pennies from nannie. (...that boy can sniff bargain before he even gets there I swear!! he picked himself up a Fliker 3 scooter for £20!!!!).

And after all that I had time to have a little play with the gorgeous new  Peter Pan from Mo's Digital Pencil.He is just a delight to colour up! I teamed him up with some awesome papers and a super cute step card file I bought a while ago from the SIL store.

That gorgeous little sentiment comes with him so I made a quick little tag to print nd cut it out on too. I am totally loving Mo's Digital Pencil's newest images being in .png format, its really making me play with my silhouette cutting machine. I still have that thing where I love to see some white around the edge to make the image pop out from the background but one day I might make myself do the just right round the edge thing!!

I am even going to enter a challenge today!! wahooooo!! go me!! so its off to the Passion For promarkers make it Digital challenge he goes!!

Right, time to go. My tummy is growling louder than a hungry bears tummy would after hibernation so I am going to see what I can rustle up for lunch!!

hank you for popping in huge hugs Lou xxx

Tiddly Inks challenge #181...Fairy Happy!!

Morning Peeps!!!
Its time for a fabulous new challenge over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog
This time its all about being....

Fairy Happy!!

So,grab your fave Tiddly Inks Fairy images/stamps and get your magic on!!

(**remember...We love to see any new creation, a card, 3D project, journal page etc 

but you must use a Tiddly Inks stamp or image **)

There are so many wonderful and whimsical fairies in the Tiddly Inks store, it really is quite hard to make a final choice of which one you want to use!! but in the end I went for Willow Greeting Fairy. I have her in digital and clear stamp so I went for a version of using both because I wanted to fill the front of my card with her.

And! get me!! I got savvy and used my silouette machine to cut round her because she is a .png it was easy to do! I need to practice a bit more with being brave and getting that border to be right on the edge of her but this time I really wanted that edge to make her pop from the layers of the card. The sentiment is done using the clear stamp set.

Well, I still have a very sore Scott at home. We went to the dentist yesterday and it was a dry socket :( so he has had it flushed and packed...with no numbing done first...ouch... and is hopefully going to pick up in the next couple of days. He is working from home because even moving around makes it quite sore :(

Morning Everyone!

Lou in for you today with a make using the fabulously cute Beach Baby. She looks so sweet looking over her free beach background that comes with her doesn't she?! awwwwww!!
I coloured her up all classy looking because she reminded me of a mini audrey hepburn!! he he!!!

So today I have Scott working from home. His mouth is so very sore, he hasn't slept in 3 nights so is hoping to get back to the dentists today for her to check it over for him. I cannot bear seeing him in pain :( I hope she can do something to help today.

Whale of a Time........

Sentiment- Whale of a Time.
Sentiment Banner- Banner scallop with hearts.

Morning everyone!

Its time for Fab Friday over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and this is my little Tiddly creation for the week!! and I couldn't resist having my first play with the gorgeous Whale of a Time.

So many times I read about these beautiful Orca whales in my facebook feed when people share the news of them being in captivity so I based my card around a time when they are all free to enjoy a beautiful safe sea as they would in the natural world and have a whale of a time. I know I am a dafty but in my own way it felt so lovely to think of them in this way instead of in those teeny tanks doing tricks.

I am not sure what we are up to today. Little Mo is at school in a bit and Scott is very sore today :( I have popped some aloe heat rub on his cheek, ear and neck and he has taken his painkillers so hopefully he will feel a little better soon. its so horrid seeing the person you love in pain :(

Huge friday hugs for you all, thank you for popping by

Dream Team blog hop...

Image- Fergus from the 6 Baby Fairies Boy set.

Morning everyone!!
Its that gorgeous time of month again for Mo's Dream Team Blog Hop! and this month's them choice came from our gorgeous Alice. She has chosen Die-Cutting, which is always a winner!! who doesn't love dies?!!

So before I waffle on about my lil Fergus creation, here's the blog hop order for you...

 DebbyLou HellenBecky .

Don't forget there are two $5 gift vouchers to spend in Mo's shop to be drawn from the participating Dream Team Designers comments so... make sure you pop in and comment on everyone's post for the blog hop to be in with the chance to win!!!

So, for mine I decided to go with one big and bold die cut using Wonky Stitched Squares Stax. Any form of stitched die is always a winner for me, I just LOVE them and as for the new baby fairies sets...oh my...they are just magical!! Here's a close up of my image and die cut...
Now, the thing I adore about this little fairy is that it is good to go for boy or girl.....which is good since I have absolutely no idea which flavour Baby Walton will be, just that whatever flavour it may be, it will be absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait to meet baby for a snuggle very soon.

I didn't want a wishy washy colour scheme because when us mummy's were all outside a couple of weeks ago cooing over our streets latest gorgeous mini peep the clothes on mini peep were bold and bright and just sooo cute! so I went with a good old red for the nappy on this baby and then dotted my blender pen on to get that floofy pants look! soooo cute!! then it was just a case of matching that in with cardstock and Lou Froo-ness on the nappy cake!!!

It looks sooooo cute! I was still finishing this up while watching 5 star babies last night! well...I like to cut things fine!! he he he!! but I love my lil pom pom 'cherries' on top!! 

Right, got to go. I have a sore hubby after having his wisdom tooth out yesterday and I just want to snuggle him better. It was a bit tough to get out and had to be cut into pieces to remove and he is very bruised and sore :( 

Huge hugs for you all, thank you for popping in, hugs Lou xxx
