Morning peeps!!!
Well little mo is watching Handy Manny so I have 5 mins to pop a post on my bloggy and join in with Julia's superb WOYWW, pop over to Julia's blog if you are not sure what it is but I love wombling over to everybodies crafty places, my only shame is never ahving enough time to comment on everybodies awesome sharings, though I do go visit all the linkies.
So to my lovely messy desk for today!!! woo hoo I finally started on some of my christmas cards. I saw a card that my crafty friend clare had made in her shop and I was so inspired by it that I had to have a go, mine of course is a little different as I just had to use my yummy new lacey circles for my sentiment and have a few magnolia swirls in there too, will take a piccy of my card later when the sun decides to come up!!!!!
I am so chuffed with it because I had my trusty Funkyhand Colour Me Happy cd for the gorgeous red gingham paper. I love gingham and it looks so festive and sweet with my little tilda stamp. If any of you already have it, I used the red gingham from the blissful baby colourway.

The crazy head photo on my back wall is of my little nephew Rufus who is 3 tomorrow! I made a card for my mum and dad to give him with the same photo!! Whenever there is a camera about he loves to get close and shout "cheeeeeeeese" into the lense! My super fabby hubby Scott managed to click this piccy of him doing it!! I love it! it reminds me of the cute little big head dogs you get on coffee mugs!!
And if anyone who knows me well saw the first piccy and thought wow, Lou's desk looks pretty neat's the rest of it!!!!!!!

I need to make a small squidgeon of space on this desk for my big sis sam to sit in tonight!! she designs he own range of digi stamps, Lilyboo designs over on cuddly buddly, and she wants to make a start on her christmas cards tonight....mmmmm where shall I put her?!!!

Oooh and I almost forgot!! I am so chuffed because I got an email from domonique over at wikio top blogs to let me know I was on their listings at number 246!!!! ( yup I know I am a long way down but woohhooooo!! i am on there!!!! lol!!!!)

So today I am going to work in my pj's!!! we are having a bit of a fun week to fundraise for children in need. I am soooo comfy in my pj's so I hope I manage to stay awake all day!!!

Huge Hugs
