Pinky birthday and Boo update!!

Hello peeps!!
Its a late one from me tonight I am afraid!! he he !! :)

I had a very indulgent couple of hours spending a few hard saved pennies at the paper craft show, got myself some yummy new background stamps from my lovely friends Ali and Iian and some papers from my lovely friend clare ( ...and clare's mum of course!!!) and had a quick womble with my BF, Fi.

Now onto my card!!! Pinky was my first ever Tiddly Inks digi and she holds a special place in my Tiddliness as she was the start of my journey into my Tiddly Inks obsession and where I met awesome and dear new friends over on the Tiddly Inks pcp page. It also took me on a journey to being a Tiddly Inker on the Tiddly Inks DT which I am so proud of. So out came Pinky to help me make a quick birthday card tonight.

I made the card base in paint shop pro so that I could print it out as one layer (this little card needs to be posted so I didn't want it to be too thick!!) Once I had printed it out I gave the edges a good old distrezz it all treatment, added the ribbon and charm and stuck it onto my card base.

Pinky is coloured with promarkers and then I cut an oval with my nesties and stamped the grid texture on with some white SU ink. I have to say I am in love with my new background stamps!! (Little Mo particularly liked the distressed dots one!!)

Now for a little Lily-Boo update too! She has a good old break at the bottom of her arm. They needed to take her down to theatre to pop her to sleep and have a good old look at it while she couldn't feel pain. It took them an hour to wiggle it all back into place, which they managed to do for now without pins which is fabulous. We will hopefully know a little more on tuesday when she goes back for some more x-rays. Fingers crossed she will be ok but for now she has a mahoosive plaster going right up her arm to her little arm pits, holding her arm at a 45 degree angle and boy its heavy!!!
I was very touched by Mo and Jake yesterday though. Mo promptly burst into tears when he woke up and I told him Boo was hurt and then they both spent the day wondering how she was despite being busy doing boy stuff like playing on big planet little planet 2, watching Bridge over Terebithia (...and yes, I did cry at it....again!) and Fantastic Mr Fox and eating popcorn!! when we went to drop Jake back off when Boo got home, Mo picked 3 "bestest flavours" mini chuppa chop lollies out of his sweetie box "to take to cheer Boo up". I have an awesome family and am very proud of them too.

Right off for bed now!!!
Huge hugs Lou xxxx
