Morning peeps!!!

Yup, its that fabby time of the week again when us Tiddly Inkers let loose another challenge on you over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and this weeks is a lot of fun, I loved it. This week we want to see your .....

The Tiddly Inks DT have rocked this challenge as always so don't forget to click on the linky and go see what the others have made.

I absolutely love Autumn, I love the colours, the crunchy leaves and the cooler weather (....mmmmm Lou thinks about this and realises there hasn't really been a very hot summer here in the UK to say goodbye to....) so for my cards I chose my Craft The Year Away from funky Hand and the 'orange october' colourway to get some cute little cards made.
These little cards are 4x4 cards and I love them. I printed out all my papers on one sheet of A4 paper using the workspace on the papercraft factory programme to resize all the bits of paper onto the one sheet ( I totally love that feature, it saves soooo much paper!!!)

Then all I needed to do was nestie up my super super cute little Tiddly Inks peeps and colour them in in some delicious autumnal colours with my promarkers. I used burnt orange and ginger for their little dresses and I love those 2 together.

I wrote on the little send me a sign bugg's sign in photoshop so it came out all ready for colouring! yey photoshop!! 
And here's the little Harvest Avenger enjoying her fallen leaves, oooh I love crunchy leaves!!!

Little Mo had a super day at school yesterday. I am so proud of him because despite feeling a bit wobbly but brave he went into the playground and huggled a little friend who was crying.I didn't know about this until the mum came up to me and said how lovely mo had been because he had cuddled her son and told him he would be OK, awwwwwww. They have  school fire alarm practice every monday at 3pm and Mo's friend has never liked it, he always worries about it on a monday and quite often gets upset so for Mo to give him a huggle made me so so very proud, he is such a special little boy.
Awwww, gushy mummy moment over, off for a cuppa and a bloggy womble!!

thank you for popping in on me, I love the little comments people leave me, it makes me smile so much
huge hugs Lou xxxx
