Funky Hand new release...Just for Jen!

Morning peeps!!

I hope you are all having a terrific tuesday so far!! so this morning I have a share with you from the gorgeous new Funky Hand download, Just For Jen.

Just For Jen downloadable backing papers.
And here's some words from Da Boss about this download as its a bit of a special one.....

This craft backing paper downloadable collection was created with someone very special in mind. The pink and grey colours were influenced by the Breast Cancer Awareness colour scheme. The backing papers have been designed to help you make really pretty handmade cards or scrapbook pages for special people in your lives. They include lovely flower/lace effect designs and hearts along with the always needed stripes, polka dots and plain papers to all work perfectly together. Also included are five sets of Alphabits for you to use to create your very own sentiments.
For every download purchased Funky Hand will donate £1.00 to Cancer Research.


It really is a super download too, the papers are gorgeous so don't forget to click the piccy and go peek at the DT gallery just below the description where you will find some awesome makes from the Funkettes.

For my card I cut a heart shape out of one of the plain papers and then foam mounted it onto the gorgeous heart paper so it made an appeture. The little tag is from my stash with a stamp from the Love n That stamp set .

Right, got to get Mo's breakfast buddy to her breakfast club!

mimosa hat bookmark!!


Morning all!!
its my DTDF inspiration blog day today and this week I had another bookmark to make. 

I always like to try something a little different so I cut out my bookmark out of Kraft card using the Die-namics bookmark and die stamp set and then stamped on my cute little Bildmarlana mimosa hat stamp. I coloured her up and then snipped a couple of little holes around her hands to thread some blue paper cord through to make a little pretend wall, the stones in the wall are just me doodling with my promarkers but they turned out so nice. I coloured a bit of grass in and dotted some white pen for little teeny flowers and around my little girl too.

I stamped the circle from the set up at the top of the bookmark and then using Die-namics Layered Rose I cut and  layered up the flower and added a flat backed pearl to the centre to make it pop!! Then I cut an extra one and tied it onto some twine so that it can hang out of the book page.

So thats me for today!! Now while I am here I just want to let you all know about our new DTDF Creation Station facebook page that we have set up for you all to share your makes using products you have bought from the Dies to Die For shop, so please pop in and join the group!!

Right time for a cuppa for me!! Little Mo is going back to school today and I have a couple of bits to do this morning.
Thank you for popping in on me!

You stole my heart!!!

Afternoon Peeps!!
how are you all this gorgeous sunday?! so far we have had an awesome day. Little Mo is feeling much better today and we have been busy playing. 

I got chance to colour up the awesome 24 hr freebie, Stole My Heart, Mo Manning shared, you might even have time to go get him before he goes up for sale in the shop. I love him to bits, he is so cheeky!!! I printed him out and coloured him up all grey apart from his juicy red heart!! so I used all my cool grey 1-5 for him and then poppy, crimson and burgundy for his heart.

The heart behind him is a brush from a set called Aunt Elizabeth Brushes that I got free from Scrapnfonts. I thought that just one big black and white heart with him would be just perfect for a man card!!

Then Mo and I made some little fimo monster dudes. Mine is called Gimp...
and mo's is called Nestlock...

I had to giggle at Mo's choice of name! I don't know where he got that from but its so funny!! I think he has a monster namg talent!! their eyes are made with glow in the dark fimo so they look super cute in the dark!!

Mo is currently making 'potions' in the bathroom...(which means I will go up and find open bottles of shampoo and talcum powder along with several of his play jugs but I don't mind one little bit because he hasn't moved from the settee or bed for almost a week now so as long as he is happy, I am happy!) 

Right then! gotta go!! Got to get the oven on for chicken enchiladas! yum!! my mummy made them and gave them to us as she was asked out for lunch so that will make a lovely change.

Thank you for popping in on me

More on the new Tiddly Inks images!!



I almost forgot to share my other Tiddly makes with the new releases! I am so zombified at the moment!! lol!!!

And my make today uses  Emma- celebrate Joyfully, she is just so cute and fab for a million different uses but today she is a birthday girl!!! she is available in digi and clear stamp, this one is digi because I don't have the stamp.....yet :) :)

I cut Emma out with my Nestabilities Floral Ovals.And coloured her up with my promarkers...
skin- blush,sunkissed pink and coral
Boots- Coral and sunkissed pink
hair and dress- sandstone, cocoa and burnt sienna

Then I teamed her up with some of my stroke only basic Grey sugared papers!!! I sooo love these papers, my little  6x6 pad is looking kinda thin now.....more stroking less using required there!! and mounted her on some foam to pop her up a squidge.

The little roses around the side are my Die-namics Mini Royal Rose.I cut 2 large ones and 4 small ones and tried to roll the 4 small ones  so that there were 2 even smaller ones so they decreased in size around the frame. A bit of twine and a little heart slider with a bow and she is all done!!


The sentiment is from a freebie I got on a magazine ages ago but it just seemed to fit so nicely.

She is off to sit in the challenge over on the Charisma Cards blog which is Hearts and flowers!

Ok, Mo and I are off to drop Sophia off at breakfast club and get some more milk being as he has decided to start trying a bit more than water today and is asking for warm milk...well its a start!!

Have an awesome day

So,its friday already...

Morning Peeps!!

I hope you are all having a fabulous friday. Mine is going to be a funny one. I have a poorly little Mo at home with me still, last night was dreadful but he seems a little happier this morning, and then this afternoon it is time for me to say goodbye to a dear person at his memorial service.

James lit a huge fire in anyone he met and was such a beautiful person but very sadly he died in november in a car crash.Its been a huge loss for all of his friends and family, especially his fiancĂ©e Vicky, his parents and his brother Paul. He wouldn't of wanted people to be sad about his death because he was so full of positivity.His funeral was back in november in Devizes but many of us from here in Lincoln could not make it so we are saying our goodbyes today. If you knew James and can be there I am sure that Vicky and James family would love to have you there. The service is at 2pm at All Saints Church in Nettleham,Lincoln and then onto the Lincolnshire Poacher pub for 3pm to celebrate James.

The lady who took the photograph above is the uber talented Claire Spelling. It was very hard for JRFS to come up with a fitting tribute to James but along with the help of James's close family and friends they put together an awesome calendar to raise money for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance and James's memorial fund.
I am hoping to get mine soon, after all who wouldn't want to see a bit of James everyday?!
Ok, so thats me for today! 
I am off to get a cuppa and have a snuggle with Mo and then take the day as it comes today!
Have a wonderful day everyone

4-tee-th birthday!!!

Morning Peeps!!

I hope you are all having a great day. I am home with a sick little Mo. He has a virus and gastroenteritis caused by all the icky stuff in his nasal tract going down into his tummy :( I feel so sad for him. He was up and down in pain and with high temp during the night but managed to sleep in until 6:30am...I however was on mummy worry mode and hardly slept a wink so I resemble something out of the waking dead this morning!! Mo hasn't eaten anything for the last 2 days so I have just made up some cupcakes and they are baking away, I figure I can tempt his with a plain little vanilla cupcake because he loves those!
Its a wierd feeling not being at work today though, its feels like I am a fraud because there is nothing wrong with me!! does anyone else ever feel bad like that when they have to call in work to say you can't go because your mini peeps are ill? 

So onto the card!!! My mum ordered " a big 40th birthday card with a cool golfer please" a couple of weeks ago, so out came the 8x8 cards, a bit of kenny K and some'man' papers!! romfl!! The little golf ball is made with my little circle punch and then embossed with my sizzix dots folder and rolled around a marble to get it 3D, the tee is just a bit of happy Lou snipping hoping it looks like a tee!!!

The image is Golfer from Kenny K , coloured up with my promarkers and then I distressed all around the edges with my vintage photo distress ink,its very manly!! lol!!!!

I am popping this over in the challenge on the Here Come the boys challenge blog. Its a bingo one and I chose....Patterend paper, distressing and image and the I love promarkers challenge blogs Anything goes challenge. the promarkers I used were...
skin- blush, sunkissed pink and coral.
Greens- pear green and olive green.
browns- sandstone, cocoa and burnt sienna.
shoes- pastel beige and khaki.

So I have one little boy all sickly and one little furball princess with a sore eye to take to the vets too, then I might get a little craftying done later!!

Thank you for popping in on me!

Tiddly Inks challenge 102- Wings!!!

Morning peeps!!

Its that Tiddly Time of week again where the Tiddly Inkers get their inky thang on over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog and roll out another super fun challenge for you all!! and this week our theme is so much fun! this week its....

Wings

Your creation can use any Tiddly Inks image you'd like but just make sure there are wings on your creation.  You can use a Tiddly image with wings, embellishments with wings, or even ribbons with wings!  There are so many adorable images at Tiddly Inks that fit the bill too!  We have fairies and buggsbutterflies and birds galore!  Remember to link up before midnight on February 5th with your NEW creation using a Tiddly Inks image.  

ooooooh I cannot tell you how much fun I had making my card for this one!!! so first some linkies of which tiddly items I used...piccies are linked to the shoppe!!!! :)

I hadn't made a shaker card in soooo long I just had to get out one of my plastic domes and have a bit of fun.

I cut an aperture out to pop my dome through. I used a scalloped circle nestie to do that so it kinda looked like a flower around the edge of the dome. Then I popped a few flowers and beads in the dome and got to work on my stamp.

Ooooooooh I know I keep saying oooooooooh but christy's Tiddly Inks clear stamps are just the bomb! first they come in such a cute little pack with a sentiment and some coordinating bits that are super cute ( I so love the little bees and their flight path in this one!!!)

I coloured her up with my promarkers...
browns- burnt sienna, cocoa and sandstone
yellows- gold,mustard and canary
skin-coral, sunkissed pink and blush
and inked the edges with some tee dye distress ink ( my fav colour at the min and everything is edged with it!! lol!!)

Then I nestied her up and adhered her to the circle I cut to back my dome and then adhered that to the dome.

I cut a little tag using my cuttlebug tags die set and then stamped the 'Happy Bee-day' sentiment onto it and threaded a bit of string through.

I love this card,its sooooo cute!! and totally warming on a freezy day too!!! so thats it from little ole me today!! I am hoping to get out in my craft room today, yesterday was just too cold and I was a bit stressed with the weather and thoughts of driving but today  am ready for action again! fire up those promarkers!!!! (....and the heater for a good hour before I go in there!!! romfl!!!)

Don't forget to pop in on the challenge blog and see what my gorgeous teamies have made and don't forget to join in the fun you will need to use a Tiddly Inks digi or stamp!!

An oldie but a goodie!!!

Morning peeps!!
well this bloggy post is late due to the snow.....:) I tell you now, Torvill and Dean have nothing on me! My car is officially a giant ice skate and this morning I managed to almost crash the blooming thing not once but twice! by the time I got home I was a nervous wreck and a cuppa and half a bar of tesco value white chocolate was in order!  its beautiful out there but take care and keep safe when you are driving....its time like this when I am sooo pleased I moved to a village on top of a hill and Mo's gorgeous school is a few miles down the beautiful country roads......sigh!!! romfl!!!

Some of you might of seen this before but I wanted to share it for my post over on the Dies To Die For inspiration blog this morning as I feel like I have only been making cards for my DT posts recently and I wanted a bit of something different!! for those who haven't seen it yet, here's a few deets!!

I used my yummy Die-namics dies .. fish tail flags layers stax die-namics. The roses are made with my Die-namics Mini Royal Rose!! and one of the flowers on my Tim Holtz tattered florals for the leaves. I sat and hand stitched the pink and green felt together, I love stitching, its so relaxing and then I hot glued my roses together and added a little gem to the centre of each one.

I cut 'LILY' out with my Tim Holtz chip block alphabet strip die and attached that with hot glue too. I positioned the roses up at the top so that when it is in a book it won't slip down and loose the page!

and here is a piccy of what happens to your kitchen chair when your gorgeous furball princess is teething....
This only happens to my chair might I add, proving she really is mummy's princess....sigh!!! so you take her for a good walk in the snow to cheer her up and hey! who needs teething chews?!! all you need to do is.....Face Plant!!! mmmmm wooferly relief!!!
bless her!! its so hard to take a piccy on your phone in the snow but yup...her head is buried up to the middle of her back!!! and thats how she says for a minute then pops up all covered in snow!!
and here's a piccy of our gorgeous walk on our way to the field....
and on our way home...

I am avoiding any main roads on our walks until all the grit has gone due to all the reports I have been reading on animals dying from licking their paws after walking on gritted areas so please wash your precious paws when you get in if you have had a walk anywhere gritty peeps.

Right more tea needed!! go to brave that chilly craft room!!

Saturated Canary challenge 35...theme..Movies!!



Afternoon Peeps!!
Its time for another fun challenge over on the Saturated Canary challenge blog and this week Mindy has set it for us!! Mindy chose....

Movies!- create a card/project inspired by a movie!

So this one was a bit trickier than I thought!! lol!!! but in the end I just had to use the super cool new DJ Love image and go for a contemporary twist on the film 'The Sound Of Music'

Now you can use these guys apart but I LOVE them together, I love how he looks like he is hypnotised by the super cool DJ chick!!! I tried to colour it in so that he is standing in front of her DJ desk!!
Now a small confession....I thought she was wearing a cool one sleeve top with a cuff on the sleeve but after I had finished my card and added her to our DT blog I saw a card that the gorgeous Deb Glennie had made and realised it was a bare arm with a bangle........derrrrr Lou!!! but I kinda like that she has a cool one sleeved top on so I left it!!!

The papers are we r memory makers Teen Angst along with a few more bits from the same range I got in the pack! the little IPOD charm is actually one of the stamps in red staz on ink shrinkified. I think it turned out real cute! getting a piccy of the holographic border strip and my crackle glazed letters was a bit more tricky!!

Here is a little bling shot so you can get a better idea of her hair, it looks so much cooler IRL!! the dots around them are glaze pens and copic spica glitter pens but I couldn't get that to show up too much either, I am just pants at pictures!!!
 and here's another so you can see how the crackle glaze dried on the letters, it looks really cool!!
So, please pop in on the challenge blog and see what the rest of the awesome DT have made up to get you all inspired... I have seen them all, you don't want to miss them as there are some great movies to get you all going!!!
As usual for a thursday I am at work whilst this post is all scheduled up so I will be in to visit you all tonight when I get home!!

thank you for popping in on me, sometimes my little old blog is so quiet with comments that I swear I see a couple of tumble weeds drift across my screen so I hope at least a few people enjoy this post!! lol!!

Honey in rubber?....ooooh yes please!!!

Stamp- Saturated Canary Honey from Little Darlings stamps.
Morning peeps!!
How are you all this wonderful wednesday?! great I hope. I am! we got a little lie in this morning as Mo did't wake up until 5:30am!!!

So my share this morning is another of the gorgeous CHA release saturated canary stamps and oooooooooh I love them all!!! I have been merrily working my way through their gorgeousness and only have a couple more to share with you but today its the turn of Honey.

I fancied something a but whimsical so I split some cross stitching thread up and glossy accented each strand all curly onto the dp, then I used my fav Memory Box butterfly delights border to cut some little butterflies out in kraft and my dp and glued them on, sooooooo cute! I love them....heck I love everything!!!!!! lol!!!!

the papers are from my websters pages paper pack I got free on a magazine a while ago, the are delicious. I ripped and inked up some kraft and added a couple of little corners and the job was done!

Yesterday was very exciting as Mo and I returned home from work to the news from Scott that Poppy had lost her first tooth!! awwww my baby is growing up!!  Mo was so excited! he asked us if the tooth fairy would come and bring Poppy a puppy markie for her little tooth ( that was actually quite big as it was a middle one!!!). Now I am one of those daft mummy's that loves to make everything just a little bit magical for her little boy so the the tooth fairy did come and we let Mo go down to Poppy first this morning! You should of heard his little giggle as he found this package and read the note...
I tell you there is nothing better than making this little guy happy :)

Right that's me for today! I am on doggy duty again at lunchtime and before that I have a 40th birthday man card....arghhhhhh... to make and a ladies birthday card! best get a wriggle on!!
Have a wonderful day everyone, thankyou so much for popping in on me and my crazy little world!!

Happily Ever After on a Tiddly tuesday :)

Papers-Websters Pages Botanicals.

Morning Everyone!!
How are you all this tremendous tuesday??!! fantastic I hope!! its a brrrrr cold one here this morning and we have been up and raring to go since the small human alarm clock went  off at 4:55am this morning.......so I have had plenty of time to make up a little valentines card ready for the season of love!!!! ooooh and while I am here, please pop in on Christy's Tiddly Inks blog because there are 2 super cute freebies over there for you!!

I ADORE this stamp set from Tiddly Inks...and even better its clear which makes masking off the image to work out where to stamp the hearts behind the gorgeous couple really easy.


I coloured this stamp a couple of weeks ago and it has just been sitting next to me on my desk making me think awwwwww since so I am super pleased it has made it to a card!!

To bring in the colour of her dress to the card  added a squidge of blue tutu trim. I LOVE this stuff!! its awesome!! and I don't waste any either! I trim it to just fit behind the scallop to the edge of the card on both sides!!

So, my RAK for today was a chilly one!! he he he!! Since I was up and wide awake I went out to de-frost my next door neighbours car as she had to go to work soon. (Her little girl, Sophia, is Mo's breakfast buddy!!). Here they are enjoying the snow last night when we got home from school....
yup, they threw those huge snowballs at each other right after I took the piccy!!!

So that's me for today peeps!!! I have a lot to do today as I am on doggy duty and pick up duty after school tonight so I am hoping to get in a little make or 2 in between things!!!
Thank you for popping in on me!!

Words mean things.....


Twine
Morning Peeps!!
I hope you are having a wonderful monday, its Lou in with a post for you this morning.

So this morning make is a bit of a memory one for me. One of my crafty goals this year is to make a card/ scrap page inspired by a memory or moment that means a lot to me. When I was at school I had the most awesome teacher, Mrs. Hutchison and she had a beautiful way with words and the way she read stories and sang used to be so magical to me so this card is made with her fully in mind.

I used the carta bella alphabet junction papers because it is a childhood memory, trimmed down my base papers and ripped a little tear into at the top, curling the edges around my paper piecing tool!! I cut a Die- Namics notched border and fishtail flag and then wrapped some twine around it.All the stamps are from the Die-Namics bookmark die and stamp set. I distressed all the edges of my papers too for a bit of umpf!!!

The sentiment is popped up on some foam and I made the little book charm by stamping 4 of the book stamp and adding a little bookmark of twine before attaching it through the torn part.

Here's a side view so you can see a bit of dimension....

On the inside of the card I stamped the long 'Read This' stamp. I love it because its just perfect for writing your message above it.

Do you ever RAK? not a planned one but an on the spur of the moment real RAK ? .....

Yesterday Mo made me proud. We were cleaning out some of his dressing up outfits that have gotten way too small for him and he said he wanted to give them to someone,not throw them away so we thought of 2 little guys who might enjoy them and Mo knows live near us and got ready to go, then he decided he wanted to give them some of his sweeties too and made them a little bag of sweets to go with the costumes. He had gotten dressed as Harry Potter while we were sorting through so kept his outfit on to deliver the little packages. Then off we went to deliver them. Mo LOVED it, albeit a little shy on delivery on the way home he was floating on air and he said...
"I feel epic! I made 2 little boys really smile!"
swoon, I love my little guy so much. Here's a piccy of his little piles...
Mummy's RAK was pants by comparison to Mo's!! I took some dog food and puppy food to my friend who works for the RSPCA. Last week she mentioned that sometimes the homeless people with dogs come in asking for food for their dogs so I decided my RAK would be some food for them as we have been hanging on to our gorgeous Holly's last food bag and Poppy never went on to pouches so they weren't going to any use on our cupboard.Here's my pants offering!!
 
Though I have to say we felt like a million dollars all afternoon.  

That's all from me today! I am on breakfast buddy duty in a little while and need to get dressed still!!
Have a magical monday! thank you for popping in on me

Pitching in with a SMASH page :)

Morning Peeps!!
I hope you are all snuggly and warm on this freeeeezing sunday morning!!! we have a nice easy day today, Mo has a swim lesson at 10am but other than that the only thing we have planned is vegging out!!! 

So this morning I have 'Pitcher' to share with you all! Last year during a bloggy wombling session I downloaded this printable I LOVED it, its  from Lara on the Less cake,more Frosting blog, its just such an awesome quote that helps me to focus when I am having a not so chirpy Lou day and giving up on things!! and it was 100% perfect for a smash page with 'Pitcher', one of the new release stamps from the gorgeously awesome Krista Smith's Saturated Canary stamps from Little Darlings rubber stamps.
Isn't she just adorable???!! I think she is awesome!!! its a quick but cute page because its all about the image and the quote, why mess with perfection :)

Also Lara has been into the hospital for surgery soon so if you fancy popping in on her blog and leaving some love I am sure she would appreciate that oodles. Lara has asked for us to do a bit of a RAK so I am thinking of mine right now and what I can do for it!

Of course it wouldn't be any fun without any washi tape so I used a bit of my gorgeous cloudy sky one Krista sent me in happy mail a while ago! I stroke it more often than I use it but thats just me! I have a whole box of strokeable washi tapes!! he he he!!!! and the cute little stickers are from one of my We r memory makers sets, and a little twiney bit was needed too!! :) 

Right then,its time for a cuppa and a pintrest womble for CHA yumminess! I have been loving seeing all the gorgeous new bits popping up.

Have a super sunday,thank you for popping in on me

This is Zumba Chick, I LOVE her!! I cannot Zumba to save my life but lots of my friends enjoy it so I loved making this card and thinking of them all!!
Stamp- Fairy Wishes.
and last but not least is the gorgeous Fairy Wishes. She swiftly got made into my wishlist book!! this book will soon be filled with my crafty neeeeeeeds!!!! he he he!!! she has a good old spray of glitter on her but getting a piccy is going to be tricky!!!

So I hope you enjoyed all my little peeks!! I am off to my Grandad's in a little while, one of the bonus's of being an early rising family means we can enjoy a family breakfast together so we are bundling ourselves off in the car,picking up my mum and going for a drive to Grandad's. We should be home by lunch for me to have a bit more of a play!! he he!!!

Have an awesome saturday peeps! and thank you so much for peeking in on me

Super Striker...

Morning Peeps!!!
How are you all this morning? great I hope. I am off to work today so thought I would squeeze in a post before I go!!!

I made this card a couple of weeks ago and forgot all about posting it! Its sooooo hard to make a card for a 13 yr old! no froo froo or little peep images allowed as its that first teen year!! romfl!!! Luckily Hugo loves his football so I could finally ink up my LOTV Super Striker for the first time!!!

I popped him on some foam and the papers are We R Memeory Keepers teen angst, they are old papers but soooooo cool! especially for teenagers!!!

The name and numbers are cut with my Tom Holtz Chip Block strip die and then given a good old coat of crackle accents.

Right off to sort myself with something for lunch...not sure what as we are experiencing after christmas no pennies no food at the moment!! he he he!!!

Thank you for popping in on me
