Paul Texting.....4 cards worth!!! romfl!!!

 Hello again peeps!!!
Another day of 2 posts!! I am blaming it on the children not wanting me much today though I did have to play referee for a bit when a zillion of them descended on my postage stamp sized garden!!!
(My little princesses' are in this post HERE if you are peeking for them!!!)

So this morning I treated myself to Mo Mannings 'Paul Texting', OMGosh, I love him!!! I have had so much fun creating a few cards with him today. He is just perfect for my nephews and I have even had to scrap the card I had already made for my nephew Warren, whose birthday was a couple of weeks ago, and make him a new one with Paul!!!
This is Warren's new birthday card.....

 My little Mo has asked for this one.....
...and this one I made using Jen's first sketch from her fabulous new Deconstructed Sketches challenge blog!!
(......yep, its the first weeks sketch but I am slow and trying hard to catch up!!!! romfl!!!)

The papers are from my stash and most of them are We are memory keepers ones, I love them, got them cheap in TK Maxx, they are called 'teenage angst' very old ones but awesome patterns!! They came in little packs of 10 papers. Some had embellies in and some had stamps, some had both, like this one! the foil border strip on Warren's card and the stamps on the bottom of  this last one were in the pack too, all for £1.00!!! bargain! but that was ages ago !!!!! the crafty bits in TK Maxx are not so good now :(

Right off to nom my pizza now!! promise not to post anymore tonight!!! lol!!

By royal decree...enjoy your birthday!!!

 Morning peeps!!!

Its a beautiful sunny day here today, so nice to see the sun and it is actually rather hot shining on my legs through the patio doors!!!!

Last night ( ...after falling asleep with mo and waking up at 9pm....!!) I decided to have some crafty fun in my crafty garage! I have 2 gorgeous nieces, Harriet and Lily, who both have their birthdays coming up really soon.

A little while ago I promised Harriet I would make her a purple princess card  and my super sweet little princess from Tiddly Inks ( her name is By Royal Decree)so Harriet's is the purple one. And Lily-boo's is the red one....
I made the sentiment in word so that it would be teeny enough to fit in my SU oval punch!! aren't they sweet?!!
Just perfect for my little princess's!!
So I had a fabulous birthday yesterday. I got spoilt with beautiful handmade cards. Unfortunately we didn't make it to the zoo, Little Mo is still a bit off it so we didn't want to walk him around the zoo all day in case it made him worse so Scott drove us to ikea for a bit of shopping instead. I knew what I wanted, 2 magnetic rails, one for my kitchen knives and one for my nesties!! here it is in working order......

cool!!! I wanted it because I am always forgetting which awesome nestie shapes I have and I just know I will use them oodles more now they are out on display, I am going to buy another strip soon as there are a couple more nestie sets I NEED!!!!!!!

I am on Aunty duty again today but only have 3 peeps in the house today, its funny though as the 3 I have today, 3 including Mo are missing their partners in crime, Ryan and Kenz who have gone somewhere else today and keep asking for them!!!! its so lovely how they all get on. So far today we have bathed the dog, hung out the washing and are just vegging a bit now!!

Have a great day peeps! huge hugs Lou xxxx
