Basic grey -sizzling summer.

Morning peeps!!

How are you all this super monday morning I am fab. I am so enjoying my holiday time with Mo and spending some qaulity time together.

Last night when he had gone to bed I had some time to make a little tent card for the Basic Grey challenge blogs Sizzling Summer challenge.  and Papertake weeklys Anything goes challenge.

There's nothing cuter in summer than seeing the little peeps enjoying it so I just had to ink up my new little tilda baby in her cute fuzzy bunny slippers and pop her in a lovely magnolia summer garden scene!!!

I used papers from my Basic Grey Sugared pad again ( yes, Lou, Fleur and Louise, I am totally blaming you guys for making me use my stroke only papers!!!!!! xx) I paper pieced the bunny slippers and frilly pants so that they matched the papers (How fab is the flamingo and giraffe paper!??)

I punched the edge of the top piece of paper with my martha stewart punch and then nestied out the shape for the cut out bit.

I made myself some teeny weeny but totally cute flowers for around a couple of the corners and tied in some brown by inking the edges and a bit of brown organza ribbon around the top.

Now, its actually quite hard to take a piccy of a tent card!! It took me no less than 16 attempts to get these 2 pictures!! ROMFL!!!

So thats little ole me for today!!!!

In a couple of hours I am taking Mo and my niece and nephew out to the opening of our new asda's ( which is quite daft as it is open already but has had a bit of a shuffle around and a pharmacy put in therefore needs an opening celebration.....) and there are going to be people dressed up as star wars characters. Well, how excited is Mo?.............
This excited!!!!!
Mo-bi Wan Kenobi !!!
(Yup...they are white pj's but I am sure no-one will notice....!!)
Lol!!! he's too funny!!!!
Thank you for popping in on me and May the force be with you!!!!! :)
