Basic Grey challenge 49- sketch.

Basic Grey papers- Two Scoops.
Gorjuss girl- Bear Hugs from Funky Kits.

Hello again peeps!!
( this is my second post of the day so if you are looking for my Tiddly tuesday post, its HERE.)

Well, we were all set to take the boys to Twin Lakes today. They love it there and have been excited since yesterday!! we set off, picnic in car and singing along to the stereo then.......

One exploded down the side completely back box on our exhaust :( pants. " very dissapointed boys later we were on our way home in a drag sounding car ( no joke, I thought my ears were going to explode too it was so loud!)
Scott went off to the garage after dropping us off at home to get it fixed and I walked to the tradtional sweetie shop in our village to cheer the boys up with a bag of sweets each, they were even too sad to want to stop off at the park to play on the way home, poor chaps.
Nannie and grandad to the rescue with tea out at the pub and they were their normal cheery selfs when they went to bed tonight, one at 6pm and the other 20 mins ago ( mahoosive thanks go to nannie and grandad at this point!!!)

And so onto my challenge card!!!
whilst Ryan took himself off to mooch woth friends and little mo relived the car bang story several times to his little friend Elliot I got chance to make my card for the Basic grey Challenge blogs sketch challenge. The sketch is very pretty and super to work with, and the Totally Gorgeous challenge blogs Punch or Die challenge.
I inked up my 'bought then sat in the draw for a while' Bear Hugs gorjuss girl I bought from Funky Kits a while ago,ooooh she is too cute!!!! love her.
She got a cheery old colouring with some bright and happy colours and then nestified!!!

The papers are from my very stroke only Basic Grey two scoops 6x6 pad ( the green on the fronds is from my equally stroke only Sugared pad!!!). I popped the panels through my cuttlebug for the distressed stripes look and sanded them off a bit to whitewash look them!! (...yes, I could of inked them with white but it felt good distressing stuff after the car incident!!!)

I made the flowers with my SU boho flowers punch and the scraps left from my card base,( jules will be most proud of me using up scrappy bits again!!) a few seedy beads, lots of fun, love how they came out.

Anywhoo, thats me done with posting for today I am off for a cuppa and an early night now, sooo sleepy!!
Might have to investigate the Funky Kits shop a bit more with my cuppa though as the gorjuss's are a bit reduced I notice.....   :)  ( ...not that I would want to lead anybody astray and enable you at all....lol!!)

Thank you for popping in on me, a little visit is always most cheering!!
Hugs Lou xxxxx

Tiddly Inks Challenge 59- Tag or Ticket me!!!

Image- Come in cuteness from Tiddly Inks.

Morning peeps!!

Its Tiddly Tuesday again which means its time for another fun challenge over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and this week it is a super fun one, its....

Tag or Ticket me!!!

All you need to do is grab your fav Tiddly Inks images and incorporate them onto a creation using a Tag or Ticket, easy peesy!!!....and might I note very addicting too!!!! :)

I made 2 (....Lou adds...so far as there are 2 more in production at the moment!!!!) I bought some tags from The Works on monday, they were so nice and jumbo size and just slipped into my shopping basket......:)
I embossed, distress inked and crafty notions sprayed my little Come in cuteness one and for the red one below, I just added my pre-coloured Heart Home and ripped around the edges of the image and the tag. I stuck it on and then covered the whole tag in crackle glaze (...note to self...crackle glaze does not like having its picture taken and no matter how much you scream at it, it still won't show up well in the picture.....)
Here is my Happy New Home tag......

Image- Heart Home from Tiddly Inks Bargain Basement.

The Happy New Home sentiment I made in my Funky Hand Craft The Year Away papercraft factory with one of the fonts in the writer part, isn't it fab???!!
I stamped over the crackle glaze with my magnolia swirl and some jet black staz-on.

Oh oh!!! look...another one just crept in on me....
