We just need to ride it out....

Image- Saved Herself.

Good morning all!

well, these are some crazy times we are going through right now so I wanted to make a card that would remind us that no matter where we are in the world, we are all in this together.

Saved Herself was just the perfect image to do this in a fun way. I made the sentiment myself in word and then die cut it.

Hope you are all hanging in there, love to you all, Lou xxxxx

Little Monsters!!!

Image- Cupcake Monster.
Happy Birthday sentiment- Evan with iPad.

Hello everyone!!

oooh, I'm late in but I have been having new baby snuggles so my mind wandered from remembering to blog my make for this week!! oopsie! but oh my....who wouldn't stop to take in some gorgeous new baby snuggles? 

But these cutie pie little monsters from Cupcake Monster called me to blog them because they too are extreeeeeeeeemly cute!!!! I do adore them!!

I coloured them up with my polychromos. I am having the best time learning with my pencils and I love how these cuties came out. I have been using the colour blends Alyce kindly put on Kit and Clowder HERE. I have found them an absolute lifesaver while I poodle along learning how to use them and she has them for pens and pencils.

This time I sat them on the Happy Birthday sentiment from Evan with iPad. It just seemed perfect for 2 cuties to sit on and send someone some birthday love.

Baby Fairy lunchbox note...

 Image- 6 Baby Fairies.
Sentiment- My Valentine Fairy.
Good Morning everyone!!

I'm so excited to share my little make for the March challenge Let's Do Green'!! I had the best fun making this super sweet little lunchbox note.

Green is not normally a colour I use much other than on leaves so it felt really great to use it in a different way to colour up my little fairies wings.

This beautiful sentiment comes from the My Valentine Fairy set. It's such an uplifting little quote and it really makes me smile.

This Mini Note dienamic is one of my favourite dies EVER!! It just makes the sweetest little teeny note, perfect to tuck into lunchboxes, wallets or bags. The branches on the front are from my latest Doo Hickey 24 set. 

And here it is all closed up...

Who wouldn't love a little lunchbox note like that?!! so cute!! Thank you for popping in, Hugs Lou xxxx

Bronte's box of yummies....

 Image- Bronte Bits.
Bones and treats- Poppy and Dasher's stash!!!!

Morning everyone!

I'm in with my normal Monday morning Dream Team make for you today. I am really enjoying delving into some older images again so I popped back to 2009 in my little Mo's Digital Pencil time machine and picked up the gorgeous Bronte Bits image set. I love all of Maurie's images but sometimes a trip back to the older ones really is such a fun thing to do, plus, I always forget just how much gorgeousness there is to choose from.

As always, my super soft spot for Bronte overtook me!! she is such a sweetheart of a pawsy peep character. So, I just had to make a little doggy treat box! 

Doesn't it just look so scrummy!!

I decided to colour Bronte up to match her gorgeous papers so I used minty green colours.

Thank you for popping in, hugs Lou xxx

Have a little heart!

Image- Valentine Fairy.
Hi everyone!

I am late popping this card on today but here she is now because let's be honest, there is never a bad time to send someone a little love, or a little kind thought, or just let them know you are there for them.

Valentine Fairy is just perfect for this. Her little understanding face and hands holding the heart are enough to lift anyone's spirits.

Soccer Girl...

Morning all! 

I hope you are all waking up to a wonderfully crafty week? Today I am sharing my make using Soccer Girl s (redux).

This card is for my wonderful BF's daughter. She LOVES football and supports Aston Villa so I just had to do her a football-related card with her team colours! I had the best fun making this card!!

And this image is a bargain because you get 2 for the price of one! The older version is included in the download too!! winner winner chicken dinner!!!
Right, I am going to indulge in my large cup of coffee and take in the rest of the quiet before my gorgeous little man comes down. One of the absolute bonus's of Home Ed is that he can wake up and enjoy his reading before he feels ready to come down and learn. I love it. And his little personality is really coming back now. I am so pleased. His self-esteem and confidence are really going up and last week he was even brave enough to start with an English tutor on 1:1 lessons to help get him ready for his exams in May/June and then he rang up, emailed and sorted out an interview for work experience!! We are so proud of him.

Thank you for popping in, Huge hugs Lou xxx

Image- Pussywillows.
Morning all.

Between Christmas and New Year we very sadly had a loss in our family. My husbands Grandma died. She was 95. Now I know it's a great age but it's still very sad to have her leave us. I didn't know her very well at all as she lived in Australia and I have never met her in person but my heart broke for Scott's Dad as I know just how it feels to lose a parent when you can't be there with them because they are in another country.

So I have made him this special card. Pussywillows is just so perfect for this sort of occasion when you want to see the beauty in such a loss.

Thank you for popping in, hugs Lou xxxx

Morning all! 

I'm late in with my Dream Team make post today but its the start of Momelearning term 202 and y'all know that cutie patootie lil guy comes first before I do anything else! He is currently revising Combined Science so I've got a few minutes to blog the cute little hanging creation I made using Valerie in Winter and one of my favourite dies.

There are actually 3 gorgeous images to chose from in the set but I LOVE this one of Valerie holding the snowball. I used my woodware fluffy stuff to get that super sweet snow look!!!

I made a quick little tutorial for the hanger I made and you can find that HERE in our Bella and Bronte's Clubhouse facebook group.

It's so super simple but it looks so cute when it's finished! and I have plenty of hanging room for more creations!! he he!!!! 

Thank you for nipping in, hugs Lou xxx

Background- Moon Baby.
Good morning all!

I'm in with my Dream Team post for you today using that cute and fuzzy new little Candy Cane Bear.

I used him to make another sweet little hanging decoration. These are just the best fun when you don't fancy making a card and you want something more 'gifty' to make with your stash.

Let's take a closer peek at that little fuzzy fellow! oh my days I do adore him!!

I added a little glossy accent to his eye and candy cane because I just love a bit of shine!!

Right, I need to get myself to bed! the little guy turns 15 tomorrow....gulp!! I can't actually believe it! It's gone so quickly! but I am really looking forward to spending some family bubble time with him today and of course.....cake!!!!!! yummy cake!!!!!...this yummy cake...

I really had fun making this one!!! he was desperate to light the candles but we told him he had to wait until his actual birthday tomorrow to do that job!! lol!!

Thank you for popping in, hugs Lou xx
