Dad Balloons....

Cambridge Court enamel dot.

Morning Everyone!
Its DT Lou popping in today with a bit of a Dad make!! Fathers Day is fast approaching so manly makes are top of my list at the minute!!

This little cutie arrived in my DT pack ( I tel you my DT pack rocked this month!!!) and I was itching to get him made into something.

I coloured him up with promarkers and added some glossy accents to his Dad Balloons and once they were dry I cut him out with the rounded banner stax. 

The card base was fun to make with the gorgeous Beach Boardwalk papers, they are so cheerful. I added a little Artic Bazzill to mat but the papers really did the work for me on this one. A little yummy ribbon and paper cord and he was done! sooooo cute!!

Here is a glossy balloon shot! he he he!!
I had the most awesome weekend. We didn't really do too much on saturday as I was working saturday night until 1am and with my dopey hip and Vit D thang going on I don't get enough umpf to do too much in one day!! and then sunday was just so lovely. We woke up to beautiful sunshine and I shared my brekkie with Mo and his "Lego army set up"...
then my friend popped in to fetch the cricut she bought from me ( squeee! well on my way to my silhouette fund/dog walking insurance now!! yey!!) and we went out for lunch with Scott's parents which was yummy.
Back home and another visit from my friend as their laptop got a virus...ick!! and helped me sort out how to invite people to my Facebook shop then another friend came to pick up some other bits I have sold!!!

It was just a lovely day and I felt so happy. I love that sense of calm you get from happy,its just awesome.

Have a super day peeps! thank you for popping in on me
huge hugs Lou xxx
