Vamp boto meets funkyhand!!! lol!!!

Hello everyone, I'm back!!
Awwwww, I love my little Vamp boto digi from Tiddly Inks!!!!!! and once I had coloured him up I knew where to find the perfect paper to go with him, on my luscious and sparkly new colour me happy papercraft factory from funkyhand!!!!!!

Now you may laugh at me but I have been itching to get my hands on my colour me happy since I first saw a sneaky peek of a card made with it that had this ginghammy patterned paper on it, I love it and I was even more chuffed when I had coloured in my little vamp boto ( he is just the cutest!! I love all my Tiddlies but mo's face when I do one of the robot ones lights up!! he adores them!!)

I made a little side step card for him and his little roboty bat to live on. I cut a couple of gravestones out with my cricut and inked them up with my almost dead chalk pad ( anice would be proud, the little foam pad on it is flaking away but it still has a little life left in for dulling down freshly cut edges!!! lol!!) I wrote my sentiment on the littlest one with a white gel pen.

Then a bit of drippy gooing from martha ( big thanks to christy from Tiddly inks for a halloween theme on the blog hop as my drippy goo martha has seen plenty of action!!!!) with a bit more inking and a little bit of thin black satin ribbon with another skull snipped out from my skully cupcake paper.

Well, my gorgeous little man did awesome on his 'bike without stabilisers practice' today. We went out first thing this morning for a go and he got himself into his normal petrified state, luckily my mum came and cheered him up by bringing him his favourite treats, ooodles of fruit!!! (pears, oranges,apples, peaches,nectarines and bananas!!!) and as if the wasn't exciting enough, she bought us a cabbage that had a caterpillar on it too!! omg!!! he was sooo excited. (said caterpillar is now living in a spacious jam jar with a huge cabbage leaf with net over the top and is called 'greeney' "because he is green and caterpillary" says mo!!!! lol!!!) After all that and a yummy roast chicken dinner he was ready to try again!!! He went out all brave and hatted up, walked his bike round to the field near our house "because there is grass both sides for when i am falling off and need soft mummy" anyway here is a piccy of my little hero having a super duper ride without his stabilisers, I am sooo proud.


He was super elated with himself and has gone to bed so happy!!!! awwwwwww (and yes thats me in the background with my arms going up ready to cheer away!!!)

Right off to watch a film with scott now.

Big hugs

a couple of cards to share!!!

Morning everyone!!!

I had so much fun wombling around every bodies blogs in the Tiddly Inks blog hop last night, there were more to peek at this morning when I got up too and they were all awesome. I just want to thank everyone for their lovely comments on my creations, it means the world to us bloggers when we get a comment!!!
So while a card featuring the super cute vampboto is drying I thought I would post a couple of cards I have been fiddling with over the past couple of days.
This one is for my son's sister ( he is my stepson! but I love him like my own) she loves High school musical so it naturally had to be that!!! I wanted to match the card up to their clothes so red and white it was!!! A bit of inking, martha punching and a googled piccy and hey presto! one high school musical card for a 5 year old!!!! I think she will be chuffed with it as it has her name on!!!!
This one I made for a friend who needed a funky wedding card for her friend who she was going to be a bridesmaid for. The bridesmaid dresses were a bright pink colour so I went for a bit of bright pink in there and used the pear and swirly branch cut from joys of the season on my cricut. Now I can't take credit for turning the pears into peeps for a card, my inspiration came from a card I saw on the cricut mb around 3 years ago when I first got my cricut, I wish I know who made it but despite my good friend google searching for me, I couldn't find it. I loved the idea and it stuck in my head so big huge thanks to the lady who made the first one wherever you are xxxxxx
I am off to have a hot vimto, feeling a little rough today, not sure why but I feel a little achey all over, think a cold may be looming, urgh!!!! lol!!!
I will be back later with vampboto!!!!
Hugs Lou xxxxxxxx
