Well this time 6 years ago I was in labour, ouch!!!!! at 5:46pm my gorgeous little mo came out to meet us! I won't bore you with all the trauma we had because he is such a happy little man and relatively healthy now!!!! ( ....says lou after spending most of yesterday evening trying to eliminate the temperature of doom he had!!!) He is so very special, and I am so thankful to have him.
So its little mo's birthday!!! and here is his card. He really likes the octonauts an on my yummy create a critter cart there was a pirate octopus that looked just perfect for the job!!
I cut him in blue bazill bling paper and inked his edges a squidge to help him stand out.He is sooooo cute!! I gave him some little rosy cheeks with chalk.
I decided on a little stepper type card. When my BF Fi and I went to a craft shop a couple of weeks ago for their opening the lovely nancy from C&C was making stepper cards with a tent of acetate over them and they were lovely so I decided to have a go at making one!!

Phew, what a busy few days!!
Now, before I go any further with my post I have to thank the very awesome Peri whose blog I have followd for quite some time now, she posted a card using Kenny k's xmas hottie a while ago and I loved it. (peri also just got runner up in cardmaker of they year along with my fellow funky DT teamie Jane so super duper well done girls!!). I have used Peri's card as a sketch for the layout of my teeny cards ( they are just 3.5x3.5 inches!! awwwwww) and tweaked it a little, its the sentiment and lace up bit that I loved. So thankyou again Peri xxxxxx
So as always with me the christmas cards are super last minute (...I tied the last bow up only this morning!!!!!) and with being last minute they fitted in perfectly with the Allsorts challenge blog theme of Last Minute Christmas Projects.
I have made 10 of these little cuties and they were a little tough to colour becasue of how teeny they were but I still think they came out great. I coloured them using my promarkers.
Here's the blondey variety......
And here is the brunette......

I made the sentiment for both the outside and inside on my computer and cut out some of the holly sprigs left on the card from cutting out the circle for my dome!!! I popped some on the front too around the edge of the dome with a few martha stewart branches.
Inside my dome I poured a few white seed beads ( that was not an easy task!!! lol!!!) they kept rolling around and in the end I had to tuck them in between poor pixies legs!!!!! the snow on the ground beneath her feet is torn vellum.
I coloured her with promarkers and here's the colours I used....
Skin-blush and soft peach. Clothes-berry red, crimson and pear green.Hair- buttercup and gold.
Then a few highlights here and there with my at you spicas ( oooh i love these!!!)
Phew!!! I think I remembered everything!!!! Must go and brave the cold and ice ( hoping not to get too close to british gas van man today after yesterdays dancing on ice!!! lol!!!!)
Thankyou so much for popping in on me!! huge Hugs

A bit inking and stamped stitches (oooh I would of loved to say it was hand stitched!) and a little splash of colour on the digi with my promarkers and it was done!!!
Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and have a peek at all the Funky girls fabulous creations.
Today is a snow day for little Mo and I. Mo's school text at 6am this morning to say it was shut. Scott tried to dig out my car but with no luck and then one of my friends from work let me know nursery was closed so we get to play all day. I have blown up Mo's snow tube so we will probably hit the little hills today!!! yey!!!! Mo's asthma means it has to be in short bursts but we will still go!!!
Off to tog up now!!! hugs Lou xxx
