Saturated Canary Challenge 14- Thinking Of You...

***this is my 2nd post for today so if you are looking for Christy's birthday post,scroll down:)***

Afternoon Peeps!!
I am back with my Saturated Canary Challenge post! This week our challenge theme is....

Thinking Of You

I used one of Krista's gorgeous new releases, Lala, for my card. I just love how she looks so thoughtful and her hair is just devine. I coloured her up with my promarkers and then used some of my MME papers for the card. The pennants are made with my SU pennants punch and the letters are from my Tim Holtz chip block strip (...yeah...again!! he he eh!! I may be addicted!!!)

I am very lucky to have 2 gorgeous little sisters that Lala always reminds me of. My sisters are called Colette and Priscilla and I love them so much. I am super excited because my Dad is coming home from the seychelles at the end of june and is bringing my littlest sister with him too :) :) :) I can't wait as I haven't seen her in person since she was 10. Dad moved to the seychelles when my baby sis was just 4, she is 16 now so I need to get a whole lot of big sis cuddles in!!! sadly my stepmum won't be coming and I miss her so much too so this card will be going off in the mail to her whilst Dad and Colette are here to cheer her up because she misses my Dad terribly when he comes here to the UK to visit.
This is my fav picture of my little sisters and my stepmum together...
So all you need to do to join in with us over on the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog is get your fav Krista Smith digi or Simply Sassy stamp and make a 'Thinking Of You' creation to share with us :)

Don't forget to pop in on the challenge blog to see what my gorgeous teamies have created. they make me drool every week so I think its only fair you should drool with me :)

Huge hugs Lou xxxx

Happy Birthday Christy xxxx

Morning Peeps!
This mornings post from me is all for my gorgeous Boss Lady Christy from Tiddly Inks. Happy Birthday my sweet and lovely Christy, love you tonnes hun xxxxxxx

For my card for Christy I just had to use Pinky. She is the image that led me to Tiddly Inks and thus Christy. From the moment I bought Pinky I have been completely hooked on them!
Red and black are Christy's fav colours so they just had to get some usage too..and those Tim Holtz tattered floral flowers had to be used with some gorgeous black bling for centres, Tim Holtz chip block strip for the letters for Christy's name. 
I mounted Pinky on some red and black deckled rectangle nesty cuts and then topped those onto a doily that my friend Hayley gave me last week ( I am so getting some more of those!!). The gorgeous crushed velvet ribbon was a gift from Ruth and oooooh you just have to stroke it loads!! :)

So thats Christy's birthday card. Christy hun, if you are peeking in this morning I still need to mail this card so it will be late but like having a second birthday when it gets to you :)  :)

Now before you go off to read some more blogs don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog because this morning we will be kicking off with some awesome creations for our awesome Christy from the Tiddly Inkers and the chance to win a gift certificate for the Tiddly Inks store!!! wohoooooo!!!

Well, I have to get my butt into gear now and get ready for work. Mo is so ready for the end of term tomorrow, he is tired out and beginning to look a little pale so I know he is ready for a little holiday and some mummy time :)
