Evening Peeps!!!
I am popping in with a late share tonight!! I have had an awesome day today. I dropped off a box of cards to my mum on sunday morning for her and dad to take out to the pub with them (...my craft room was getting over run with lou makes!!!) and she rang first thing this morning to say they had all gone and could I send some more please!!!!
I was so so excited because things have been tighter then my size 14 jeans this week penny wise and our fridge and cupboards were close to the state of old mother hubbards cupboards!! he he he!! so Mo and I went out to get some shopping and met scott for lunch then home for more playing!! a perfect day really!!
Now I just need my cards on ebay to sell so I can buy a new kettle! mine died yesterday but its not been too bad as its been so hot today that I only wanted my morning cuppa so I resorted to the saucepan of water on the hob idea. Mo stood watching what I was doing for a few minutes and then said..

"wow mummy,its just like when you were little in the olden days boiling your water in the pan"....

I had to laugh at him! he's so cute!!! so anyway tonight I decided to get out some stamps and have a go at the gorgeous sketch over on the Sugar Bowl challenge blog...
Challenge 88 (Summertime)
It was such a yummy sketch I couldn't resist so the card at the top was made for the summertime theme but I loved the sketch sooo much I had to make another one!! he he he!!! and I was in a distress ink kinda mood so there's not much colouring on it really, more a mono kinda feel to it.....
Stamp- Luv A Latte from Funky Kits
Papers-Sugar and spice vintage impressions from cuddly Buddly

I also want to say a huge thank you to the 3 peeps who emailed me yesterday to say my comments box wasn't playing for them, I have changed it back to a pop up box now so hopefully it will play nicely now!!!! :)

Thank you so much for popping back in on me! twice on one day again!!

Morning Peeps!!!
Now I am quite aware that over the last couple of weeks I have been doing a lot of 'squeeeeing' but there is another large 'squeeee' from me today!!!! :) Anyone who knows me will know that I completely adore anything fantasy and my fav films include Labyrinth,Legend and Krull. I just love anything magical!!! and its an awesome Tiddly tuesday because its the release day for the absolutely gorgeous new 'Fantasy Friends' from Christy...
 ..... and oh my gosh will you love them!! I have been absolutely desperate to show you some sneaky peeks of them!!! I was going to do one card a day like I did for the new clear stamps last week but I was way too excited so you get a few today...then i can make some more for later in the week!!!  :)
for my Magda and sparkles card at the top I used one of Christy's awesome papers called Rainbow Forest. I use this paper all the time! its so bright and cheery. Sparkles got a good old coat of ...well....sparkles!!! magda got funky hair and I even made some flowers from blue organza ribbon!! can you tell how much I love these images yet :)
Next we have Mystria....

I merged her onto Brave paper. I loved the blue of the bottles so she got mysterious blue hair. This was my first real play with pleats in dresses too. I have this gorgeous friend Alyce who is wizard with pleating on images (...actually she is wizard with any form of colouring, she's awesome so please pop into her blog and swoooooon along with me :) The scroll is my magnolia scroll and the little 'drink me' sentiment is made with the alpha set on the 'Steam funk' download from Funky Hand.
Then we have Magda.....

I just adore her little fairy friend!!!! Actually I just absolutely love them all! 

Today Mo and I are meeting Daddy for lunch. We have Mo's little breakfast buddy coming in a couple of minutes and we are going to walk her to nursery, we are taking Holly too so she has had a nice walk before it gets too warm, and then we are going to have a bit of a play before we leave...Lego is on the cards this morning and Mo has already made 2 rather fabulous rocket ships for us to make a space base with!!!
This is a good idea for me as yesterday I thought it would be a good idea to clean out my cupboards in the kitchen while Mo was still busy with soldiers and potions in the paddling pool....I managed to break on of my ornaments from the top of the cupboards where I display them and almost miss Mo's hair appointment...there proof that cleaning is bad for you :) :) mwah ha ha ha!!!!!!

Thank you so much for popping in on me!...now go see what the other Tiddly Gals have been making for the release over on Christy's blog!!!
