I just had to use my super super cute new Little Elf Mim digi from Mo's store, isn't she just awesome??!! ooooh I love her to bits!!
I coloured her up with my promarkers and added some glossy accents to the big bauble she is playing on, awww she's so cute!!!

I hand stitched around all my papers ( that way I could keep an eye on my little peeps playing outside)!!!

I am also popping this little cute girly Elf mim in for the cute and girly challenge over on the crafty pad challenge blog.

Now I think that really is me done for today!!!!!
Huge hugs and thank you for popping in on me...again!!

Distressing a gorjuss birthday!!

 Morning peeps!!

Yey, I am pleased to report a fab nights sleep with no daft fireworks going off!! wohooooo!!!!

This mornings Lou share is a card I made for a dear friends birthday. She lurves gorjuss girls so I had to use my 'I found my family in a book' stamp that I bought from Clare's shop, Cloud 9, at the sincerely yours papercraft show back in may.

There is ooodles of distressing on this one!!!!! The card blank was a kind of cookie colour and the image was stamped onto white, mased over and then a good old splodging of tea stain and walnut distress inks added!!
Same on my book page, which I punched down the egde of and the card base too.

Now her hair I have to thank Rosie for her fabby tutorial on.I worried about red hair until I saw hers!!! thank you rosie xx

I love how my little gorjuss girl came out. I had so much fun making this one.
To tie in the blues and the book page I made some more yummy mini flowers with my SU boho flowers punch and a bit of crafty notions spray ( very messy but totally oodles of fun!!!) the centres in these little flowers are punched Lou faux brads!! mmmm, not sure the sparkliness is showing up on the flowers :( and I added a few little blue pearls in the top left corner.

I added a squidge of hemp twine, and a couple of knots and the card was done.

I am entering this card in the Charisma Cardz challenge blogs distressing challenge.

Well, I am going to put the kettle on and have a cuppa and a jammy ring, anyone want one??!! thank you for popping in on me.

huge hugs Lou xxxx
