Happy Birthday Copic Marker Europe!!!

 Hello again peeps!!!
its a 2 posts in one day blogathon for me today!! romfl!!! see what happens when hubby and little man go out to the cinema and leave me at home!!!
...I also baked fruit scones, mint crisp and lemon drizzle cupcakes!! yey go me!!!

So I am back to share with you the cards I have made with the digi's from the Copic Marker Europe's 1st Birthday celebration. They were just far too cute not to get out my teeny copic pen collection and join in!! I have...wait for it..... a whopping.....12 copic ciao's!! yup, I know ya'll are bursting laughter right now! but thats it, just 12 and I really enjoyed getting them out again this afternoon.
I was in a mono mood (.....which is a blooming good job really as the copics I have only really allow mono....:) :) 

The papers on the first one are papermania portabello road and on the second one below I used one of Kim Macfarlane's  Cardmakers  

 I printed her out 3 times to get the bits for the balloon to make it 3D!! and just to make you all laugh...this is my pile of copics used....yup...11 of my 12!! he he he!! the only one missing off this piccy is my C1 grey!!!!! see I can achieve 2 cards with my teeny copic collection!!!...though in all honesty I would dearly love some more, especially some oranges and browns.
Right then, that really is all from me today as now I am going to try and settle myself down. I am ridiculously excited because my dad and my little sister are coming over for 3 weeks from their home in the seychelles. I am sat waiting on a call to say they have landed in heathrow...believe looking at the phone and willing it to ring doesn't work!!! he he he he!! I have been trying it all day!!!!!!

Thankyou so much for popping back in on me
huge hugs Lou xxxx

Pretty Mix Cardmakers....oooohhh!!!

Afternoon Peeps!!
I hope you are all having a wonderful sunday! We have rain here really heavy rain!!! Mo and Daddy have gone to the cinema to watch 'Pirates' so I  am having a little mummy makes time!! its actually one of my favourite things listening to rain drops plinking on the metal shed just outside my craft room, its so relaxing....though today its more like drums!!! he he he he!!!
I just wanted to share some awesome new papers from Kim over at Cuddly Buddly. They are called 'Pretty Mix Cardmakers' and I cannot tell you how much fun I have been having with I am going to show you instead!!! romfl!!!
Now I don't know about you but the hike in postage prices for the depth of my cards has had quite a knock on effect with the layers I use in cards I know I need to mail and I so love my layers so when I was wombling through the Cuddly Buddly shop a couple of days ago I found these Cardmakers from the delicious Kim Macfarlane (the cards I made with them I will share in a days time when some yummy new digi's are released :) but they were so awesome they got me thinking and I sent a bit of a begging email to Kim for some circley middle ones...and omgosh did she deliver!!!

I added a nesty circled image of the super cute 'Union Jack Love' from my big sisters digi's to the centre and that was all it needed!! all those delicious layers and distressing come with the papers!!! I absolutely adore them!! so I thought I would do a couple more makes with them for you using different digi's because they are just so versatile! I love something that I can use with everything I already have! The next 2 cards use my Tickled Pink digi's that I won from the gorgeous Kellie Winnell. This is the first chance I have had to have a play with them and they are awesome!! I got a huge selection but these 2 little chicks shouted at me to use them first!!! he he he!!!
Union jack love and the 2 cute school pinkettes are popping over to play in the Cardmadfairy's digi days  Girlie challenge.
And here's one last one using one of my fav LOTV images...
I am popping him in the challenge over on the Lili's Little Fairies challenge blog which is Time to play.

Would you believe I made all of these cute cards in just an hour last night?!!! thank you Kim for your hard work on them, they are awesome!!! I even printed them all twice so I could pop the second one on the inside of the card, they look so nice as an inside layer too!!
Thank you for popping in on me!! and sorry to bamboozle ya'll with a zillion piccies.
