Spring LOTV wedding anniversary!!

Hello again Peeps!!

We had an awesome day of family togetherness today and it was fabulous. Mo went to bed super happy and that feeling is magic when you are an owner of little peeps! 
This morning we took Holly out for a walk so we could deliver this card to one of my gorgeous friends from work who lives in our village. It is her first wedding anniversary tomorrow and I just had to use this little LOTV stamp because as soon as the nice weather started a couple of weeks ago Sarah and Jack got busy on sorting out their garden and putting up a little summerhouse too!!

This stamp was just perfect for the glorious spring/summer weather we were having and its all romantical for an annivesary with the little  couple working together on the little heart tree :) 
her little dress is coloured red because sarah has one that is red with white spots that she lurves and some red shoes that are her fav!!! yey!!! I try to stick to around 3 main colours when I am colouring ( though judging by less than little pile of pens below I am not sure how well I managed that today!!!)

Here's a better piccy of the little sweethearts!!!
I nestied out a little circle window and popped it up on foam so that the little stamped circle was set back into the window. I absolutely love my new big shot for helping me to do this, I think it is definitely my new favourite tool! I am so pleased I got it!!!

I also stamped my LOTV circular special day  stamp and added in the date for their first anniversary. I think your first anniversary is so special as that first year just flies by, I think its 'paper' for the gift too so its a good job I made a card!!! lol!! 

Oh and off course a Lord Timmie tattered florals flower was extremely needed on this card!! :) (...mmmm I don't think there is really ever a time when Lord timmie is not required in some way on one of my cards....)!!! and a sizzix swooshy thing behind the special day stamp.
Here's another piccy from a different angle so you can see my Lord Timmie flower better :)
And I added a little heart button too, I love that button! it came in my do crafts bouffle button bag and its too cute!! the centre of the flower came from the same bag too. It has all sorts of gorgeous buttons in.

The papers are the nitwits papers called Crab Apple Too  that Fleury made me buy....:)

Here's my not so small  'promarker pens used' in an elastic band piccy !!! I do love this idea!!!
Challenges I am entering with this card are...
Passion for promarkers-weather theme.. sunny spring days for gardening are the best :)
Simon says- use your favourite tool definitely my big shot at the moment!
Papertake weekly- Anything goes love an anything goes week!!

Tomorrow we have another kinda lazy day planned, though we do need to pop and get some new toy storage for the garden as Mo's little toy shed has broken and his toys are getting wet. He loves being out in the garden so we are going to look for some kinda storage bench he can sit on too. 

Hope you had a great day everyone and thank you so much for popping in on me

Happy Easter to all xxxx

Good Morning Peeps!

I have so very much to be thankful for this easter. I have an awesome husband and son, I have an awesome family and friends.

I am very blessed to have a son who loves doing anything to do with animals/natural play. I love that about him. I love that I have a garden full of huge tree branches he has dragged home to make dens and play with his little plastic soldiers on, I love that he rescued an old tyre too and I giggled so much as he and daddy rolled it home for half a mile down the field path!! I love that he came home from Christopher's with a pocketful of sheep wool that is treasure because some is purple ( ...from the marking spray!)

I am sending my love to you all today with this little piccy of Mo feeding lambrini the lamb her milk! He had the biggest grin on his face all the way through, he really loved feeding that lamb! 
We had such a lovely time with my god father yesterday looking at all the little lambs and sheep and Mo loved it. He was a little nervous to feed the horses but so very happy about feeding one lamb and getting to hold another one ( ..which we didn't get a piccy of as daddy had to get the lamb when 2 cheeky mummy sheep escaped from one pen and the baby lamb from another!! Mo LOVED that!!!) 

Mo's favourite lamb of all was this cheeky little one that Scott spotted tucked up quite happily in a basket in one of the stables!! When Mo saw it he loved it and this little lamby was the last thing on his mind as he fell asleep. He said to me as he was dropping off to sleep...

“mumma please tell Krista about the face thingy so Philly can see it tonight because its his daytime when its my sleepytime, I think Philly will like the lamby in a basket one best”

the 'face thingy' is my facebook!! but this cute little lamb was way too cute not to share with all of you guys too!!!
I love having a hubby who takes fabby pictures for our little man to remember things he has done and I am just so blessed that I can enjoy all of these beautiful journeys with my family.

On that note, if you all have a little time today, please could you pop in in Adie's blog. Adie  is one of our parents from the nursery where I work. His gorgeous daughter has since left our nursery to go to big girl school but Adie began a battle with MND at the same time and his blog is a huge inspiration to me and how they are all coping with the changes is awesome. Please pop in and wish him happy easter for me because I know he would love to know you have peeked in on him.

Have an awesome easter everyone, I am off to set out an egg hunt for Mo now...we will be doing this all day because he loves it!! we put clues in plastic eggs, one clue leads to the next and his giggles at finding them are so amazing we don't mind how many times we do it!! choccies will be nibbled and we will all be together having fun, what could be better?!

Huge chocolatey hugs Lou xxxxx
