Ahoy there Tilda and a bookmark.....

 Morning Peeps!!

Well are you ready for some giggling? This little Tilda card is the card I made last night to share with everyone over on the Dies to Die for blog. I happily sat there making away and thoroughly enjoyed my little hour of crafting,its quite amazing how much of my time has been zapped up by the furball princess and obviously it is effecting my dopey little brain too because.......then realised I couldn't find the stamps in the shop....romfl!!! 
so I had to have another make for the blog and share Tilda over here on my blog!!!

And here's the bookmark too....

I have been having a little play with the Die-namics  bookmark stamp and die set and ooooh I am loving it!! this is the first make I have done so far but I can see a whole lot more coming this afternoon.

I cut the bookmark and then added the circle stamp and the book stamp to the top. I sewed a little MME merry and bright twine through the little book and glued it down to make its own mini bookmark.

I had a little scrap of MME Summer Splash paper that I stuck onto the bottom of the bookmark and then I stamped this gorgeous sentiment onto a bit of the kraft card and added a little twine under that too.

I stamped with black onyx versafine ink, I love how yummy and crisp it is on sentiments.

Sorry for the ever so pants picture but the light here this morning is terrible!! 

Did anyone else watch the space jump last night? we did!! we watched it live on youtube! it was absolutely amazing! Scott, Mo, Ryan and Ryan's friend Charlie all huddled around my laptop at the kitchen table and watched the last hour of the ascent and the jump. Mo was absolutely glued to it and to see him so excited and clapping with such excitement when the man landed his parachute was just such a joy. It was a late night for Mo but so worth it.
Thank you for popping in on me this morning
Huge hugs Lou xxx
