Happy Day ....

 Papers - MME Summer Splash.
Morning everyone!
Its my day to post a little Lou make over on the Dies to Die For inspiration blog and I just had to share it on my bloggy too because he's just so adorable.

I hope its a whole tonne warmer where you are than here in Lincolnshire because its sooo freezy I could of stayed tucked up in my duvet this morning!!! but I wanted to share this cute little Greeting farm guy with you! I adore their little faces! they are such a joy to colour up.

I used up the last bits of my treasured MME Summer Splash paper to make my gorgeous Little Mo his birthday card and a little matching notepad,its his birthday in December and I am quite proud of myself for being super organised this year!!! I sometimes end up rushing the little guy a card out because I am in full chrimbles cards swing but this year my Little Mo comes first!! go mamma!!!

The papers had a little sheet of pennants and badges that you could cut out so I had lots of fun choosing the ones I fancied and then made a little row of pennants using the last squidge of my MME twine!!!

I stamped him out with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured him up with promarkers

Here's a closer look at the birthday card....

 The little strips just behind him are borders from the same page as the gorgeous little pennants came from.I curled the edges of the pennants a little so they looked like they were blowing in the breeze.

Then I got busy on a matching notepad. I coloured him up slightly differently than the card but still using the same colour pens. The name is made with the Tim Holtz Chip Block Alphabet strip die.The little 'Happy Day' sentiment comes in the stamp set and I just stapled that on before adhering the whole piece to the front of the notepad.

 I hope you enjoyed a little 'Happy Day' posting from me today!! He's just so cute you can't resist him really and I loved making this little pressie for my little guy, he will go crazy for it because it has dinosaurs on and he is always making notes and plans so a little notebook will be very happily received!!!

Yesterday we were finally able to set the little furball princess free on the big world streets for her first walkies and she loved it!!! here she is skipping along...
he he he he!!! she looked so teeny out there, I have to admit the harness she is wearing is probably going to sit at the back of our cupboard like it did when we had it for Zakky as I just prefer the control of a lead and collar. Furball Princess also went for her very first training session yesterday lunchtime and she loved that too!! she was quite happy pootling around the field and practising walking on her lead nicely. She practised turns and walking in front and sitting which was so much fun it left her like this.....
......for the entire afternoon!!! romfl!!!!! but she is sooooo cute!!!

Right I am off to soak up some time with my gorgeous Little Mo, its half term and we have a pj day planned. I have bought some microwave popcorn so we are going to get that in and snuggle up and watch a movie, this is my favourite kinda day.

Thank you for popping in on me, I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for me, they mean so much and keep me smiling all day as they pop into my inbox. 
Huge hugs Lou xxx

Have to remember that one for when my boyo is a bit bigger. Love the papers and layout of both makes. So cute to see the pics of your gorgeous pooch too! Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Wends x

  5. Can't beat a pj day! He's a fab wee character. I love the way u have used the papers and bunting. Notepad is a great idea too.

  6. A wonderful card and note pad. Your Promarker colouring is just amazing. I think you need to give me some training in the Design Team Forum as I still colour like a 5 year old :( Little Poppy is a real stunner, that last picture is so lovely, they are always so sweet when they are fast asleep. I'm just looking down and our Travis is curled up just the same on his bed in my office. Just he's a bit bigger than Poppy and I know he's fast asleep as he lets me know by sharing his wind with me..if you know what I mean! Now where is that can of Oust so I can breath?
