We were out again at 6 am bike riding and woofer walking ( which may not of been a bad thing as it is clouding over a treat here now!!!!) and when we got home Mo was off out in the garden with one of my little ikea jars, they are so sweet.
Anyway, I ask him what he is doing, he says " collecting some little rocks for daddy to stop his paper flying away on his desk" ( this is because whilst we were out in the craft room yesterday wih the doors open due to the mugginess of the weather, some of the papers on the desk started floating around with the breeze, mo thought it was hilarious and said daddy needs a paperwieght! of course then I got te super "why, what is one of them mummy?"!! so after I explained he just carried on playing, I thought nothing of it and carried on with what I was doing!
So anyway!! once he had filled up this little jar I had an awesome burst of inspiration! Here's a close up of the filled jar, oooh what fab rocks!!!!
I got one of my coloured stash of Tiddly Inks out, I had the cutest boy holding a rock , called You rock all ready to go and he rminded me a little of Mo with the blondey hair that I just had to use him!
I punched out a circle and inked the edges in a boy grubby brown kinda colour!!! and then I asked Mo to write 'daddy you rock' (he added 2 kisses but I guess that is his right as the artist for the sentiment!! lol!!!!) All I did then was to stick the cute boy to the circle and stick them to the jar!!!! a little bit of brown gingham ribbon and a bit of crochet thread for rope and it was done!!!
It is now sitting proudly on daddy's desk waiting for him to come home and find it "for a surprise!" from Mo, awwwwwww, I could bottle this little guys lovliness and sell it!!! He wants to make another now forhis little friend who is moving soon,....though Mo is in complete denial about it and keeps getting upset!! so that will be one of our jobs for today. I have another baby card to make for a friend who has just had a little boy ( he and his wife have 3 girls already so I was so excited when they had a boy!) I might be back with that later and I have just bought the gorgeous Fairy Fae from Tiddly Inks, I actually squeeled when I saw her!! so she wil be getting coloured today too!!!!
Off to get on with crafting while Mo is busy in the garden!!!
Have a great day everyone!! Hugs Lou xx

Mo and I were out doing more biking at 6am this morning, he wanted to catch daddy up as daddy bikes to work but Scott was probably sat checking his morning emails before we even got started so Mo settled for a good ride around the block!! Today he was even brave enough to check out riding over the speed humps in the road and the giggles that followed melted me!! awww I am just so proud of him I cannot put it into words!!
So today really cute offering from moi is a new baby card to pop into the get funky challenge blogs 'something new' challenge. I used the delicious gingham paper that is on the cd in a beautiful green colour, I love this paper so much!! I used it on my little vamp boto card in the black and I just love its versatility. Be warned though peeps, there are so many papers to choose from in so many different colourways that it will take you 30 mins just to decided on which to use!!!!
I used my cricut wild card cart and cut at 5" on the blackout function for the base. The words 'little one' are from new arrival in both shadow and normal, I glazed them and added a little yellow bling to match the stars on my gorgeous little sleep tight baby from Tiddly Inks. His little blanket is flock which is soooo soft I keep rubbing it!!!!!
I have a stack of coloured images I need to put to good use so I might do a bit of crafting tomorrow too!! plus its easy finding paper to co-ordinate with my pre coloured images now I have my yummy new colour me happy cd!!! Thanks Anice!! lol!!!
Off to put the kettle on, anyone for a cuppa?!!!
Hugs Lou xxxx

I cannot believe how fast the weekend has gone!! I have been nursing a bit of an upset tummy and coldy bug but have felt my normal cheery me!!!!! my tummy is just an ache now an I feel less fluey but sooo tired!
So this morning I decided I really oght to get on with my Tiddly Inks challenge card, I have got so caught up in the amazing halloween digi's that christy brought out that I forgot that I hadn't done my challenge card!!! This week it is a sketch and I had fun making this one.
I used the super sweet little rocket boy digi. He comes complete with his own little sentiment which gave me the inspiration for my card.
I decided he needed to be in the stars and to follow the sketch I made him a little moon to fly across, I embossed the moon with my cuttlebug spots and dots folder.
The little zig zag embossed flight path is a martha I am babysitting for one of my BFF's Fi while she is enjoying disneyland ( i am missing her sooooo much).I topped it with a little bit of cosmic dust in the form of some of my basic grey fibres!!!!!
My little rocket boy was coloured up with my promarkers and then his smoke is some woodware fluffy stuff in white (too cute in real life, came out a bit pants in the picture!!) I did colour over his face in my clear at you spica copic and he really glimmers but I don't think that showed up either!!!!
Anyway, a small update on mo's caterpillar!! he has started making his cocoon. I cannot tell you how excited Mo was when he came down this morning and the caterpillar was in a thin little house of silk. We have checked him a few times today ( ....every 10 mins to be precise!!! romfl!!!!) and he is now in quite a thick little coccoony silky thing. As silly as it may sound it is actually quite amazing to watch, I will get scott to take a piccy with his posh camera tomorrow!!!
Right off to bloggy womble!!
see you all soon,

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.
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 decided to make a little scene with her and popped her in a shadow box card. The papers are from a free download I got around 3 years ago!!
I drippy gooed the edges of the box with one of my martha's and added a bit of green basic grey fibre for good measure!!!!! lol!!!!
So here's the details for the blog hop if you all want to join in!!!
Th prizes are exciting too!!

Its going to be another warm one here today!! I have resorted to canvas trousers and my open toed sandls for work as my feet were just way too hot yesterday!!! I feel more paddling in the tough spot with the little peeps coming on today!!!!
So over to the fab new boo- depage!!! I had so much fun doing these last week but due to having a few bad days I didn't get round to posting them. I am feeling a bit better now and coming out of the fog I think so here they are!!!!
I made them using the gorgeous new 3D decoupage available in the Lilyboo Designs shop over on Cuddly Buddly. There are girls and boys which is super and Iwill be getting to work on the boys next!!!
Here we have the super cute cupcake girl. I just couldn't resist using the new pocketful of papers download on this one!!!
Well I am going to make myself a cuppa and get myself going ( though I would rather be at Kat's disturbing the peace of her day off!!! am soooo jealous!!! ((hugs ))to kat xx!)
Mo is playing with hs baby born doll, Harry, and his baby annabel,annabel ( not much imagination for picking a new name there huh?!) teaching them how to go down the slide!! so I might even get to drink the whole cup in peace!!!

Well I have come to the conclusion that this week cannot possibly get any better!!!!
I have had a lovely week at work enjoying the fab weather with the little peeps, the planes have started to arrive and practice for waddington airshow ( which is right over the field from my house) and i love watching them practice...mo is not too keen on the loud ones !!)
But the best bit of all this week has to be this.....
