I absolutely love halloween and take Mo trick or treating with my friends and family. We all go together, normally around 5:30pm and just womble for an hour enjoying every bodies decorations.
So for this weeks challenge......

funky noel with bells on!!!!

Good afternoon!!!!
hope you all have lovely weather like we do today. Scott and I droppped Mo off at school, treated ourselves to a lovely breakfast and then came home and set to work tidying up the garden. It looks nice at the moment....all ready for little Mo to come home and fill it back up with lego models and cars!!!!
So on my bloggy today we have a most funky and gorgeous wordbook using one of Anice's fabulous new wordbook downloads,This one used the traditional wordbook download which you can find here.
Its hard to see in the piccy but I printed it out on linen card and it looks so pretty with the texture in real life!!!!
Now to make you laugh a bit!!!
I finished the wordbook yesterday and pootled off to fetch Mo from school. I came home and took a couple of piccies, popped the memory card into my computer, looked at the piccies and thought ( like we all do.....) there naff, I'll take a better piccy when little mo goes to bed.
So I get mo settled off after a story and pootle back down to take a coupe more piccies........yup naff again so I resort to my lovely light box photo thingy.....more naff piccies. By this point I am getting a little stressed with my lovely purple canon ixus and deciding it must be going flat. I put it on charge and treat myself to watching the great british bake off,( mmmmm yummo food in the final, well deserved win Ed!!!)
Go back to take another picture, its poo too so I scream at camera and threaten to squish it into the floor and do a ceremonial camera squishing dance on it!!!!!! romfl!!!!
I take one picture today ( yep, just one!!) telling camera as I am taking it that if its a poo picture I will swap her for scott's 'all singing all dancing god I don't know which button to press' camera
.......and whoop whoop little purple camera does me proud today!!!!!! phew!!! the glitter on my letters still isn't as sparkly as it is in real life but it came out ok!!
so thats me for today!!!
huge hugs

Tiddly Inks challenge 22- Sketch challenge!!

Hello peeps!!
Its that Tiddly time of the week again and this week We have a fabulous sketch for you from the lovely Betty Boo.
Isn't it cool?!!!
I would also like to send some cyber hugs and cyber chicken soup to Betty as she is a little under the weather at the moment. Huge hugs Betty xxxxx

Please use her great sketch to create a card using one of Christy's fabulous Tiddly Inks images. As always the DT have made an amazing bunch of cards to inspire you so make sure you go and check them out before you start!!

I really hope you get a chance to join in. Christy is in the middle of creating a pool of potential DT members for the Tiddly Inkers. You can read more about that here. So if you fancy getting Tiddly a little more often now would be a great time to start!!!!! lol !!!
You have until next Monday at 10 PM CST to link your card on the challenge blog.
So, here's me for this week!!!!!!! I am so excited about this card because ........

I made it for Mo!!! (using the new stamp especially made for him by Christy!!!)
So, Mo was doing his Tiddly Tuesday shopping a couple of weeks ago and said
""I need a school boy tiddly, has Christy got one in her pencil?"
Awwww, too cute!!! I told Christy what Mo had said, ( he is just too cute not to share with people!!) and last week an email arrived for Mo. Well, let me tell you, he was soooo excited. I let him open the piccy ( he is rather computer savvy like Daddy!) and he actually squeals!!! lol!!!
He said " oh mummy, look its me!!!!
Awwww some more!!!
So I set to work pretty much right away using Betty's fab sketch. I decided to be a little different and cut out the little squares in the sketch for windows, resizing the blackboards to fit in the windows, cute!! and added a couple of little schooly dingbats to the boards. I coloured my Mo up in Mo colours!!!!

This creation used.....

Schoolboy Mo digi from Tiddly Inks

Blackboard paper from Tiddly Inks.

Promarkers- Hair-sandstone, buttercup. Skin- vanilla, pastel pink. Jeans- denim blue, pastel blue. Bag- berry red. Shirt-pastel beige. T-shirt-pastel green. Smiley face on the T-shirt- Gold. Books- a bit of all the above!!!

Tombats 1 dingbats font from Dafont.

Computer made sentiment using Kirsten ITC font.

Antique linen distress ink.

Bit of doodling around the edges of Mo and the card base.

Mo is absolutely loving school so far which is fantastic as he wasn't at all sure last year! He is missing his best little buddy but they have discovered skype and had a couple of chats on there so that eases things a little for him. He has already told me he is taking this card for his teacher when it gets to half term break.

I would love to see some peeps using the gorgeous little Mo on their Tiddly challenge cards this week!!! How exciting!!

Ok time for me to get ready for work!! thank you for popping in on me!!!

A scrap page for Grace.

Morning everyone!

I have had a busy couple of days trying to work out a lovely scrap page for my mum to give to her friend Carolyn. This is Grace.
Grace sadly passed away in january after getting meningitis. My mum tells me Grace was always such a happy,smiley girl and she loved pink, so when mum gave me this photograph to work on I wanted to make it a happy page.
My mum also wanted some hearts on there to so this is where I ended up.
The heart around Grace and the letters for her name are cut with glittery pink adhesive paper its yummy and cuts beautifully in my cricut.
I used some little beads to glitz up my doily hearts martha punched strip (....and yup, it took me ages to get them all on!!!! lol!!!!!)
The little ripped bit on the top left is a little trick taught to me by my friend Chris ( she s a lot better at it than me!!!!) and its so addictive as it just makes a lovely feature on a page/card. I popped some eyelets in near the end of the tear to make it look like it was being held together by them and the black hemp thread.
The little elephant charm is there for never forgetting Grace and it had such a pretty little heart on it too, it just seemed to want to sit there.
I made myself some flowers with my boho flowers punch and some fronds with my martha punch to add a little something to the heart surrounding Grace.
I hope Carolyn likes this. I actually felt a little sad making this when this beautiful, happy girl kept smiling at me and then I remembered she had gone.

This creation used:
Papermania paper from my stash!
martha stewart doily hearts and frond punches.
hobbycraft adhesive glitter paper in Pink.
tiny beads.
SU boho flowers punch.
Making memories clear sticker from my stash!
elephant charm.
My magnolia swirl stamp just gently on the photo.

Well, I must get on. I have oodles of housework I must sort and a dog that needs walking!! If I get all that sorted this morning I will be able to craft away tonight!!!
Hope you all have wonderful saturdays!!

Tiddly Inks challenge 21- Our Pets.

Morning everybody!!

Oh I hope you had have better weather than me today!! it is cold, damp and very windy!! but luckily I have my guest DT card for Tiddly Inks challenge blog to post today so that's brightened up my day!!
Its challenge 21 already!!! so here's the details for the challenge.....

We have a very fun challenge if you happen to be a pet lover because this week our challenge is all about our pets. :)
Grab your favorite Tiddly Inks pet or animal image (you can find 3 animal freebies here) and join in.
You have until next Monday at 10 PM CST to complete and link your creation and link it using the little inlinkz gadget on the challenge blog.

I loved making this card because I had a small little helper with it!!! I got Mo to pick which animal I should use and he chose Father bumble bear. He said "its just like him and daddy and could we make daddy's birthday card?"
So we set to work. I used my fav manly backing papers from funkyhand for this one too ( the pack is slowly disappearing now :( time to buy some more!! lol!!!) and they matched the colouring on my bears an absolute treat.
I used a lovely heart sentiment stamp to make a charm with my shrinkies ( yup, led astray by Lou and Chris again!!!! love ya girlies xxx).
Then, (and this is my absolute favourite bit on this card!!!) I gave Mo my black sakura glaze pen and asked him to write Daddy somewhere on the card. He chose where to write it all be himself and I am super proud of where he wrote it. He wrote it on the heart, but not just straight! He wrote it so carefully and followed the shape of the heart adding some little kisses!! I think he is definitely picking up the crafty genes a treat!!! and it will make a super special card for Daddy's birthday in november.

This creation used....
Father Bumble Bear from Tiddly Inks.
Funky Fellas paper pack from Funkyhand.
Baby bear hugs heart stamp from my stash ( my mum bought me this one at reevsby show so I am sorry I don't know who made it :( )

Heart cut on my cricut with george cart.

Well I must pootle off now and get ready for the day!

A little feel better soon LOTV!

Morning peeps!!!
I had a super day yesterday. First it was a day at cricut club which is just always so much fun, I made 2 cards which I will post later in the week. Then onto babysitting for my 2 fav little people in the evening ( though I must admit they are not quite so little anymore!!!!)
I made this little card for my friend's niece who had a small battle with a trampoline, she slipped under the net to get out and took a tumble on the way and came off slightly worse for wear bless her. I don't know her too well as I have only seen her a little handful of times but she is one of the cutest little girls and I felt so sad that she had hurt herself. Her aunty ( my friend) keeps us updated and summer is now home after a yukky couple of days and an op to wire her little bones in her arm up to heal.

I thought that my cute little LOTV nurse stamp would be a good one too use and teamed it up with an easel fold, martha punch and of course some gingham funkyhand paper ( I love gingham!!!!) I made the sentiment on my computer in one of my favourite fonts. I used the little hearts that punch out to decorate the white cardstock under the punched edge.
We also have a new arrival in the daubney household, rather a surprise though!! I just happened to be getting the cucumber ready for our african snail, Speedy Chuggington. ( speedy from ryan, chuggington from Mo) and I saw this little lump on his (....her?!) foot near the shell. On closer looking ( after thinking omg? what is that? and can you take a snail to the vet?...) I realised it was a teeny tiny baby snail!!!! awwwwwww!!! Then when I put the cucumber in it slid down the foot of chuggington and got onto the cucumber!!!
Anyway, I called Mo ( who was engrossed in lego making...again!!!) and told him to look what was in the tank. Well, you have never seen such a happy little boy!!! So I said to him " what do you think we should call the baby snail Mo?" he replied
" We have to call him whoopsie mummy because we didn't know he was coming"
Well, scott and I had to laugh!!!! ( lou had visions of Mo being born and being called whoopsie as we didn't know he was coming either!!!!! lol!!!!)
So here is little whoopsie you can just about see him on the edge of the cucumber!!!

(...and yes, I am frantically searching the tank hoping there are no more after being told by my brother that they have squillions of babies!!!)Right I am off for a cuppa, to get the washing machine on and get caught up with ironing. We were going to womble to the shop but Mo has requested a pj morning so that will have to wait a while!!!!

My card used:

white linen cardstock.

Gingham paper from my funkyhand Colour me Happy papercraft factory.

LOTV Little nurse stamp.

Martha stewart Doily hearts punch.

SU oval punch and scalloped oval punch.

Computer genrated sentiments with Kristen ITC font.

Thankyou for popping in!!!

Too cute to miss!! Shirt and tie card.

Morning peeps!!
It was my day off yesterday and in between cleaning up and mopping floors ( that didn't want to dry because for once there was no wind!!!) I had time to make something!!!
This little card came about because I just happened to turn C&C on for 2 minutes and the lady on there was making this card.

I was cleaning at the same time so missed some of the folds so I turned to trusty old google who in turn took me to the amazing Dawn's blog ( I should of known to look there first!!!) Check out the linky for Dawn's fab video on how to make your own.
The only thing I forgot to do now I see the picture on my blog is to make sure I had turned my awesome funkyhand patterned paper up the right way!!!!!
I love the way it opens up so you can write your message inside....

I added a little pocket and buttons to mine too.
Men's cards are so tricky to make so I want to thank Dawn for this fabby tutorial, I am definitely going to be making a lot more of these!!

And here is my gorgeous little Mo!! ( yup, with his dylan dog, that dog still goes everywhere with him!!!) This picture was taken in between the tear of monday morning but I think it came out quite well. He has had 3 days back at school now and is much happier. He loves his new teacher and is coming home happy with no tears in a morning so that is amazing!

This card used....

Dawn's fabby tutorial.

salt and pepper download from funkyhand.

London fog memento ink for edges ( still not got myself a new charcoal chalk pad!!!)

Funky faux brads ( linky for my tutorial!!)

Right of to get ready for work!!!!

Using up a few scraps!

Good afternoon everyone!!!!

Does anyone else have a totally over flowing box of scrap bits of paper/card in their craft space? !! I definitely do and it grows everytime I tidy away (... generally 2 mins before my big sis or Fi are due to arrive and I want them to think my crafty garage is tidy!!!! lol!)
I was sorting through mine yesterday to donate a few bits to my sister sam , here's her blog ,who has just started making cards with her own digi's. She is doing fabulously and asked if I had a few spare bits so I searched through and found her some but also found myself a few too!!!!

Then this morning my lovely friend carol inspired me 100% by showing me a card she had made ( she made a little cricut file for it too but I haven't swept the dust off my cricut to use it yet!!!) so I used the picture she showed me and followed it like a sketch. Thank you carol xxxxxx

I wanted to make a quick hello card and this is what came out of it!! awwwww!!!
Using my gorgeous scraps of funkyhand paper from a halloween card I made last year I made the card base, bit of cuttlebugging for my scalloped ovals and of course a Tiddly Inks kitty!!!
I added a bit of red here and there to give it a splash of colour!! and a tiny tag saying 'hello'.

So that was my 'make of the day'!!!!
This afternoon Little Mo and I have been out to watch Ryan playing football, his team won 12-0 and Mo was very impressed by Ryan's 2 goals!! he kept shouting " thats my brother!!" to any poor bystander that looked his way!!! romfl!!!! the sun was shining beautifully but it was very windy so I have returned home feeling like an ice cube!!!
Its back to school for Mo tomorrow and he is not overly impressed at all, he has told me he "cant possibly go back to school until november" why november I couldn't tell you but he wants to come back to nursery and be with one of his old teachers, Karen, instead!! Bless him!! I have to be honest, I am nervous about going back to work too, it sees like such a long time since the start of the holidays and I will miss Mo dreadfully, oh the joys of parenting!!!
Oh well, I had better go cook lasagne and watch Wall-E ( ....for the zillionth time!!)

This creation used:
Papers from scraps box, they are funkyhand's salt and pepper download.
Sealed with digi stamp from Tiddly Inks.

( ....there are not so many left now!!) I added a little twine to the box flap which is scalloped when you pull it out but I forgot to take a piccy of that, derrrr!!!!!
I had to add a couple of yummy paper flowers too to match Fae's bouquet.

Tiddly Inks challenge 19- say goodbye to summer!!

Hello peeps!!
This is my second post for today as I have actually managed to get my card done for the Tiddly Inks challenge, say goodbye to summer.
I had a little idea for it after bringing home a page from my bff's magazine throwing out pile yesterday but didn't have chance to start it until tonight when Mo had gone to bed and I am very impressed with myself for getting it finished!!!!! lol!!!!!
I had already coloured up my gorgeous gossmere with some autumny colours so all I needed to do was cut her out a little, she actually lost a bit of her fringey dangly bits due to scissors cutting them but I know Christy will fully undersand this small slip, hair can be quite tricky to trim....... lol!! and hugs for Christy!!!!!!!!
I made my little framey box card and I just had to use my awesome funky hand funky seasons cd, it has this gorgeous autumn sentiment paper on it. I printed out in the delicious orangey colour ( there are 2 more colour schemes to choose from too!!!!)
I stamped around the edges of my frame with a little leaf stamp and made myself a little shrinky button ( the shrinky button is all down to the lovely Chris who showed us how to do it at the demo on saturday!! I have made 6 since!!!lol!!!)
Then a little orangey chalking ad hey presto!!!
You would laugh at my big sis sam if you were here tonight, she has no internet at home and hasn't had any for 3 weeks now!! she has another week to go until she gets it back so I have introduced her to the world of scheduled posting!!!!!
This creation used:
Leaf stamp-Inkadinkado- halloween/harvest assortment.

Get Funky - Fabulous funky florals!!!

Morning everyone!!!!
I am so excited this morning because it is the first time I have made a challenge card for the Get Funky challenge blog being on the Funky hand DT!!!!!

Its Kathy's challenge this month and she set us the fabulous task of............
Fabulous Funky Floral Fantasy

The catch is that Kath wants to see lots of dimension in the way you use the flowers, so just a flower patterned paper, or a flat flowery image just won't do at all!!!!
When creating you flowery masterpieces, please remember your project will only be eligible for the prize if you use at least one Funky Hand product - Click HERE for a quick link to the Funky Hand, you will be spoilt for choice and if you were lucky enough to hit Anice's funky sale over last weekend its a perfect time to get exploring those cd's or downloads!!!!

So for my card I used the colour me happy cd. I wanted some flowers that would match the gorgeous funky flowery paper on the cd so I went for pleated flowers. They were so relaxing to make (especially after a little bit of help from my scorpal ,lol!!!). For the centres I made myself a couple of funky faux brads with a bit of scrap paper left over from the card base.

For the card base itself I printed straight onto my card blank with the flowery paper and then added the plain piece of linen looking paper to the bottom. I also made la little pleated paper ribbon to go across the centre of my card!
A quickly stamped sentiment and a few martha branches for leaves and the job was done!!!

The little pleated flowers are so much fun to make, I had a few more funky scraps left on my desk from a few other bits I had been making so I used some to make a funky little memo holder for my fridge!!!
....and here it is in action holding another one of my fav funkyhand cd's!!!!
Mo has been for his back to school haircut this morning. Please excuse the grimace on his face!! its a bit bright out there today and the sun got in his eyes!!! We went for 7:30am to daddy's hairdresser as he wanted his hair like daddy's!! He looks so cute!!!! he was most impressed when the man asked if he wanted gel on it and jumped at the chance!!!
I am off out into my craft room now to have a bit of a play while Mo is busy with his lego, its gorgeous here today so I have plomped him outside with his car mat on the decking and a bowl of water for putting his boats made out of lego in!! happy days!!!
