Beach walking and a Funky Hand sale going on...NOW !!!

Hello Peeps!!
Not a card to share today as we have spent most of the day plodding along the beach with Mo and Holly and we are now all resembling zonked out little zombies (..have you ever realised how hard it is to walk along on the sand?!!!!)  but I just had to make myself move to my pooter to share a few piccies and most importantly a Funk Hand sale with you!!!

Sooo, Sale first!! There's a whopping  50% OFF all downloads on the Funky Hand  website from now until Monday 27th February at 10am.  Now, don't miss out on this sale because those downloads  are going for next to nothing until monday and ya'll know how much I use them!! I don't think there are any that I am not completely in love with!!! I think I use them on most of my cards in some way because I love the fact that I will never run out of that paper because all I ever need to do is print off another sheet!!!! :)

And now a share of my cute little peeps on the beach!! Its the first time we have ever taken Holly to the beach and oh boy did she love it!! she kept woofing at the waves when they came along and they caught her by surprise more than once tumbling over her but she loved it!!!

Here's a thoughtful Little Mo. It was only 8am when we got to the beach and the sun was gorgeous (.....but dippy here forgot to remind gorgeous Hubby to pick up his posh gadget boy camera so these are from my phone, an ancient Samsung  Jet!!)
I think the sun must of been shining right at me taking it judging by the colours! he is always completely mystified by the big wind turbines in the sea!!!
Here's the fluffy princess!! in this piccy she had just been attacked by a mahoosive wave and was trying to work out where exactly her attacker had hidden!! it was so funny, I thought I was going to drop my phone I was laughing so much!! talk about a tena moment!!!!
and here's thing 1 and thing 2 chasing each other around the beach. hey had such a wonderful time and I am so very thankful for both of them being such a great match, they completely adore each other and that makes me so happy. Its a joy to watch them together as Mo is so loving with her.
After a good 2 hours of beach exploring (...pockets full of shells, stones and seaweed...ahhh i so love Mo's idea of treasure!!) we plodded back to the car and Scott took me 2 mins down the road to the Cutting Edge Crafts shop.
Now I have shopped online with them before and it came super whizzy quick but boy oh boy was it gorgeous in the shop!
I have been saving hard for a Big Shot and finally managed with the help of payday to get enough pennies to go buy one. I was so absolutely confused at what you need to get that I asked one of the ladies in there for some help and she was just absolutely amazing. She helped me to get together all the bits I need, steering me away from bits I though I needed but totally didn't ( i am so super thankful for that as it meant I had pennies left to buy a die i really neeeeeeeed ...!! yup, Lou if you are reading this it is definitely your fault.....) 
So if you are ever in skegness pop in on them and you will not regret it at all....and give the lady in glasses in the shop a huge hug from me because she was so lovely.
We put mummy's new treats in the car and went off to get some fresh donuts for the journey home ( ..its ok peeps, don't worry about my diet because I bought a cup of tea too so all donut calories were instantly melted.......)

Once we were home and Holly had splonked out fast asleep from a busy morning (.....and little Mo had helped to open the huge box....make it into a robot head...and come back to mummy to investigate the big black and oink thingie!!!) all 3 of us sat down to watch the tutorial dvd which was great too as Little Mo decided he should demonstrate each step for us!!! too funny but I cannot tell you how much easier it is for him to use than the cuttlebug I was using!! I love it already!! if its good for the small one, its good for me!!!

Right I have waffled a zillion!!! :) bet ya'll have dropped off to sleep!!! :)
thank you for popping in on me! 
huge hugs Lou xxx


  1. You certainly had a great day - Cutting Edge Crafts is just a great shop and I go every now and then to see what they have. I shop online with them also. Service is second to none and they are so helpful.

    Hope you enjoy your Bigshot - I b0ught one when the Cuttlebug was causing me problems with my wrists and nebver looked back.

  2. Wonderful pics from the beach! =)
    Have fun with the Big Shot!
    Hugs, Elenor

  3. I am sooo glad I popped in on you today, because you've just solved an ongoing problem for me.....I had no idea that I had to drink tea with my donuts, so all the calories have set up camp on my bum...will now know what to do...haaa!
    Sweet post today, those pics! Enjoy your Big Shot, and look forward to seeing your next creation. :)

  4. Lou, the pictures are all great, but I love the first one that's almost like a silhouette. Your ancient phone did a great job. Wished I knew now what I didn't know when I got my Cuttlebug. Love my Big Shot. I however did not get a DVD and need one.

  5. Such gorgeous piccies Lou...and Oooooh a bigshot!!...have fun with your new toy sweetie :O)

    BIG HUGZ Fleur xXx

  7. Hi sweetie loving the fabulous photo's hun looks like you had super lovely time. Do you know I live right next to the beach, its basically at the end of my road & yet its not very often I go, except the summer. We dont realise how lucky we are sometimes & take too many things for granted, I know I do lol. I love walking bare foot along the sand, problem its a nightmare to try push a wheelchair through it so sadly we can never take Natalie :0(

    Have fun with your bigshot hun I love mine, it did make my cuttlebug some what redundant as the big shot I think is so much better.

    Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

  8. Oh Sweetie thank you so much for sharing your photos and the memories of a great day ! You are going to LOVE your Big Shot, it's the best crafting item I have ever bought, I use it every time I craft...
