Trimming the Tree!!!

Morning Peeps!!
How are we all today? Fabulous  I hope.  have had a craft/bloggy free few days to spend some time with Scott,Mo and Poppy and it has been wonderful. We just needed to have some us time, not doing much because it was soooooo cold and rainy (......and still was when Poppy and I were doing Puppy training yesterday...brrrrrrr!!) but I feel so much better for some family time, I love it.

So this little cutie is my DT make for the  Dies To Die For inspiration blog today. I had some colouring time in the afternoon while Mo and Daddy played on the PS3 and yummy makey time last night once an exhausted Mo had fallen asleep and it was bliss!! I also seem to of has a complete die cutting fest with all the different dies on it too!!!

There is.......
a Cheery Lynn French Pasrty doily , Memory Box Cherish border, Tim Holtz mini tattered florals and Doo-hickey swirl with flower leaf to make my little poinsettia!!!! I had fun with that little thing!! it is 2 of the long petalled mini florals with a Tim Holtz winter wishes die snowflake in the centre and a couple of stamens popping through. I rolled the petals of the flower around my pokey tool to get a bit of umpf in them!!!

The stamp is Saturated Canary Trimming the Tree. She was just so lovely to stamp and colour and I love those layers in her dress. I dotted my blender pen around the green top layer of her dress to give it a bit of a worn,soft look.She is coloured with promarkers and has some Copic At you spica pens dotted around her, they are gorgeously glittery but the piccy doesn't do them justice!!

The papers and the little cookie hearts are all from the First Edition Festive Treats 6x6 paper pad, its yummy with lots of double sided and glittery papers in. I foam dotted the hearts onto some MME merry and bright twine (...sob sob...its almost my last little bit of this gorgeous twine!!) and of course a little bit of Stickles Star Dust bling to finish off the baubles, star and skirt on the tree.

Well, that's me for today! I have got Mo's little breakfast buddy arriving soon so I am going to get dressed and get a cuppa and a nice bowl of hot porridge before she arrives. I am still frozen from yesterday's puppy training class so its going to be a thick socks and big jumpers kinda day today!! Poppy is not keen on the wet,cold grass so I am thinking I am going to have to get some under grass heating soon....he he he he he!!! we even resorted to taking her out with an umbrella over her....
"......yes, mummy and daddy are suckers for the furball princess when I sit at the patio door all sad because I want to go explore and that horrid cold wet drippy stuff is spoiling  my playtime and making my grass all cold and soggy!!! thank goodness my big brother has a super duper animal umbrella to protect me!!!! come on Daddy lets go!!!" 

he he he!!!

Thank you so much for popping in on me and I am waving a huge hello to all my new followers! I couldn't believe all the new faces when I peeked in on my bloggy this morning, thank you so much for reading my wafflies!!

have a great day everyone,huge hugs Lou xxx

  3. This is such a beautiful card I don't know where to begin to compliment you so I'll just say, wonderful.
    Poppy is very different to our Travis, if it's raining he begs to go out. He has a bit of a thing about water, rain, hose pipe he doesn't care. Though he does go a little mental when he is wet, running around the house at full pelt..perhaps not a good thing really!!
