Ready, set, snow....

Papers- Bo Bunny Mistletoe.
Morning all!!

well, I am not ashamed to admit I am still enjoying pootling along with some wintery makes....and....if I am totally honest...jealous that my makes have snow and we don't where I live!!!

I really enjoyed playing with this gorgeous little set! you can just do your own thing with the huge range of stamps in the set!! so cute!!

I die cut the globe on a separate bit of paper and popped it out form the card base, oh my, it looks soooo cute!!!!!!

Today we are off out for a little drive to get some hamster bedding floof and just shake off that cabin fever feeling! we managed a bit of a play outside yesterday but it is sooooo windy here. Luckily no rain or terrible flooding as we have seen from other areas in the UK. Our thoughts have been so fixed on all of those affected over this christmas period. We have been watching the news in disbelief :(

Right, woofer walk and then out!!

Thank you for popping in, huge hugs Lou xx

Image- On a snowball.
Coming soon to the Mo's Digital Pencil store!
Papers-Pebbles Happy Day 6x6 pad.

Morning everyone! Lou in with a share for you today and I am very excited to be giving a sneak peek of the stunning new 'On a Snowball' image coming soon to the Mo's Digital Pencil store! I bet y'all can't wait for this one!! she is too cute!! 

And as an uber bonus she is fab for a whole tonne of occassions! I went for a good old Hi kinda card...which I will need because I totally forgot to post out most of my christmas cards with Mo being poorly for a few days. He is tonnes better now and having a good nibble at foods that he fancies so thats lovely.

It felt so good to have a bit of a colour up after a few days of immersing myself in family time. We have had such a lovely relaxed christmas, playing with Mo's new top trump cards...Plop trumps! so funny! all about animal poop!!!!

Right, enough Lou waffling!! have a great day everyone!

Papers- Kaisercraft Twig and Berry.
(golden oldies from 2012 and very stroke only!!)

Morning all!! its time for a new challenge over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and today its.....

Merry Berry!!
so... think reds and burgundys and christmas yumminess images/stamps 
 themed papers/ embellies, etc!

I just had to ink up my gorgeous  Willow christmas fairy clear stamp set. She is just so cute. I masked off her boots and bag so that I could stamp a few of the present stamp around her feet and ooooooh I love the sparkle from my little sparkle pen on her wings! it looks so sweet!!

So Little Mo and I are taking it easy again today! he has his sewing machine and stuffing all ready to make some cute christmas bunting and we are going to take a little walk.
We are also going to attempt making our first ever macarons today...if we are brave enough!!! lol! they look quite tricky but fun!!! I'll let you know how we got on!!!!!

Christmas Fairy Holly......

Rubber stamp version- Fairy Holly.
Papers Kaisercraft Twig and Berry.

Morning all.

I have a make for you all today using the gorgeous Holly. I used the Penny Black rubber version for this make but luckily she is available in my favourite - digital version too.

I chopped her feet off to fit her on this gorgeous tag die cut.I adore making these tags. I make them a little easel stand on the back by cutting 2 DieNamics rustic hearts die cuts ( the long and skinny heart) and then fold them in half. Glue along one half and stick in to the other half of the 2nd heart, then unfold them to make the easel stand. 

These tag cards look so divine on the mantel or windowsill.

I used my yummy new spectrum noir clear sparkle pen to get that gorgeous blingyness on her dress. They are such lovely sparkle pens.She is popped out on foam but its a bit tricky to see from the photo.

The sentiment die cuts came in my Kaisercraft Twig and Berry paper pad. Its an old one from 2012 release but the papers are so pretty I can't help but use them.

I'll be home from work in an hour ( scheduled posting is my friend this week!!!). A quick nap before Scott leaves for work and then its me and little Mo time. I adore the holidays so much, time with my little guy is always the best days.

Hugs Lou xx

Christmas Attire...

Morning everyone!
Lou in with a post for you today using Christmas Attire. She is such a sweetheart.

Whenever I feel a bit stuck at what card to make, I switch t out and make myself a tag for my tag collection! I have tonnes of these little beauties. I use them to pop on the windowsill to dress it up on a little easel I bought from the range for £1. Its so nice to change them out and have something new to make me smile in a morning.
