Cover Girl....... squeeeee!!

Hiyah peeps!!
ok so this is going to be a little bit of a quicky post as I am just having my cuppa before I go off to work for the night but ooooooh I just had to share my excitement with you!!

I have been proper published in a crafty magazine!!! squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!

Da Boss over at Funky Hand asked me if I could do a few cards for a magazine feature for the Complete Cardmaking with your PC magazine and naturally I said ooooh yes pleasey!! ( and then proceeded to panic at each card I made being good enough for a magazine!!!)

You can imagine how excited I was when it plopped through my door on saturday morning!! oh my!! there were 2 of my makes on the side of the front cover!! and then on the contents pages and even on the subscription page but the most exciting was these few pages below......

Mo was most impressed with this page and his baby photo!!!

I cannot tell you how much this has made me smile. Having awesome papers to play with made it all the more fun!! It is so lovely to see them in a magazine!!! I even got a little thank you note from Becky Higgins, the editor, saying 

'thank you for the cards for complete cardmaking, I loved them- the feature looks great'

how exciting is that?!! so I feel a little bit famous now!! lol!! love the thought of peeps flicking through that magazine with something of mine in it!

Right gots to go!! a night of filling up the shelves with stuff is calling me!!! he he he!!

Huge hugs and thank you for popping in on me

Stamp- Toby from Little Darlings Saturated Canary.
ribbon-Grey Velvet.

Hiyah everyone!! Happy Monday!!

I have a super cute little Toby to share with you today! isn't he just the most fabulous little guy?! I decided he had a whole tonne of sparkle in that bag so I got out the Teresa Collins Stationary Noted papers as they have some great sentiments in them (....and I had seen his one whilst I was stroking the papers last week!!!) it looks just perfect with him and its such a beautiful sheet of sentiments too. I was stuck between this one and one about fairytales!! 

I loved colouring this little guy up with my promarkers. I try to stick to just 3 colours when I am doodling away and the browns and blues are one of my fav colour combo's ever. This image uses-
browns- sandstone, cocoa, caramel and burnt sienna
blues- pastel blue,denim blue and midnight blue
skin- blush,sunkissed pink and coral.

I made the little banner bit on the corner using my Fishtail flags layers stax, its fabulous for those little scraps of paper! I love how they cut out and I have a thing for curling them up so they look like they are flying in the breeze!!

So this posty is all scheduled up and when it goes live I will still be at work! I am loving it!! I have 4 shifts this week so I will be soooo sleepy by wednesday but I don't mind one little bit,its so lovely to have a fab job again. I will be going to bed after dropping Mo off at school so I will be popping in on you all a bit later!! 

Thank you so much for popping in! Huge hugs Lou xx

A Giant Cake make!!

Afternoon Peeps!!

I thought my little blog looked a bit lonely today so i decided to post a little LOTV make!

I love this stamp, Giant Cake, its just sooooo sweet and it is perfect for a Grandma card too. I love it when I really enjoy pootling along making a crd, its just so relaxing. I even got my flowery corners right first time on this one which is a miracle as I normally get them all wrong and end up doing it a million times!!! its an 8x8 card so plenty of room to splodge out on bits to add too!!!

All my boys are outside playing at the minute and its awesome listening to Mo giggles while  Ryan and Scott are busy playing tennis with him!! that's the best kind of day ever for me. poppy is trying her best to nibble quietly on a fir cone and trying to hide the fact she is doing it from me by turning her back on me whenever I ask her what she has got, cheeky furball princess!! Tea is in the slow cooker so I can just relax a bit. I need to go have a snooze really as I am at work tonight so I might schoochy off up there now while they are all busy doing buy stuff!!!

thank you for popping in on me

Patches the Fairy.....

Afternoon Peeps!!!

I just wanted to pop in quick and let you all know that Patches the Fairy is now up for sale over on the Saturated canary shop :) I know some of you have been waiting on her and I didn't want you to miss her while she is on special offer!!

Please pop over and read krista's blog post to find your coupon to get her for half price. It was a hard and sad post for me to read but I am behind Krista 100%. I am on the DT for a lot of digital artists and have a sister and many dear friends who are sellers of them too and these issues are a constant struggle for them. 

so thats it for me for today. I have a poorly little man still, he managed a short time at his school fair but asked to come home. He was very sick last night but thankfully has not been sick again today so we have had a film day. We watched 'Oz the great and powerful@ this morning and 'Jack the giant slayer' this afternoon. He managed the fish from his tea but that was about it so its going to be an early snuggly night tonight bless him.

First Communion....

Image- First Communion from Mo's digital pencil.
Afternoon peeps!

I am late popping into bloggy land today because I have had a chill out morning with my gorgeous hubby. We took a drive into town, had a drink and shared a steak paninni  at Starbucks and then came home. It was so lovely to have a mini date!

Then I needed to get to work on a couple of cards that just needed finishing off. This cutie was one of them.

I cut the cross and name on my silhouette!! oooh I love it!!!! that writing is so delicate but it cut it just fine!! I embossed the smaller cross with one of my docrafts embossing folders but I can't remember its name for toffee!!!

The little boy is all coloured up with my promarkers and I glazed his little beads but itys hard to see in the photo. I popped him up on some foam too so he just pops out from the cross.

Tomorrow is Mo's school fair so I am hoping the weather will stay dry, he so looks forward to the summer fair.

Right I am going to pootle off now as we are going to walk the furball princess before we get Mo from school so I had better get a wriggly on!!!

huge friday hugs and thank you's for popping in on me!!

Image- Princess Harvest from Saturated Canary.
Afternoon Peeps!!

Its time for a new challenge over on the Saturated Canary challenge blog and this week its...
Summer Fruits!!
so think an SC image with some fruit on it, Fruity papers or Fruity colours!!

I always enjoy a bit of Lou time craftying away with my SC's and this one is just adorable. I tried to colour her up with red indian skin and hair tones too. She is just gorgeous.

I made myself a little apple embelly with a red button and a punched green frond!! aww cute!!!

I am popping her over in the challenge at Simon say stamp which is also summer fruits!!!

I have worked three shifts of 10pm - 7am at my new job this week and I have really enjoyed. I am a little fluffy headed dopey today and I am sure I will catch up on sleeping in a big way tonight but I am just so happy because I really love my new job and it fits in so well with daubney life too as I get to do all the things with Mo that I love. I love dropping him off and being at the gate at hometime, sneaking to fetch him from sports club early so I can see him playing with his buddies and being able to go into school for special assemblies and sports days. I am blessed and I know it :)

So please pop over to the SC challenge blog and see what my gorgeous teamies came up for this one because they totally rocked it with some stunning creations.

Passion for promarkers challenge 203...Floral Fantasy!!

Morning peeps!!
its time for a new challenge over on the Passion for Promarkers challenge blog and this week its been chosen by our gorgeous Eileen and its....
Floral Fantasy
( use more than 5 flowers)
 We are sponsored by the gorgeous Sally Ann from Digi Stamp Boutique again today and she is offering 6 digi's to the lucky winner
DigiStamp Boutique logo
I loved the black floral set from the shop so I printed one of the flowers out and then went to work with my coral, sunkissed pink and sandstone promarkers by dotting the colour on around the blooms. Then I went over the top of the dots with my blender pen and finished it off by adding glossy accents to the ends of the flowers.

I punched lots of teeny flowers and added them to the corner of the image mat, theres teeny little gems in the centers but they are so hard to see!!

Have an awesome day everyone! I will be sleeping for most of it after working from 10pm last night to 7am this morning!!!

My gorgeous  bestie Pops spurned me on with my share for today with her fabulous card on friday so I just had to ink up one of the new Tiddly Inks stamps that are on pre- order in the shop. The only trouble I had was choosing which one to use! I love them all!!

I went for Hang in there because I love the sentiment and the cute birds and the leaves...oh heck...all of it!!! he he he!! I even stamped the little birds so they are hanging upside down like the little Wryn! so cute!!!

She is coloured up with promarkers and teamed up wit some totally lush and girlie papers from MME. I cut the sentiment and a couple of scraps with my fishtail flags layers stax and added an enamel dot (omg those things are soooo addictive!!!)

A little bit of LOTV for a saturday!!

Stamps- Little Ballerina from LOTV.
Big Present from LOTV.
Morning peeps!!!

Its a stunning sunny saturday morning here and that sun is soooo welcome after a few days of rain, wind and thunder! 

This little make is for a Grandad for Fathers day, so cute!!! I stamped the little girl first and then masked her with my frisket film. I love frisket film. I stamp my stamp on it first with staz on and then cut it out and it is good for like a zillion times of using it. I have had my roll of frisket for 4 years now and it still has oodles left on it!!
So I stamped my little girl up, covered her in the frisket film and then stamped the little boy so he was just behind her a little. Then I took the frisket film off and coloured up my pair of cuties!!!
I know you can do it just as easily with paper and a bit of removable tape but I love my frisket bacuse its clear and I can see exactly what I am doing....because I am that dopey I would get it wrong somehow!!!!!

I stamped one of the gorgeous postmarks out and cut around the edge then popped it onto a little circle of Kraft card to give it an edge, adding one of the little hearts from my border to the centre of it.

Man cards are sooo hard, I so wanted to add a few flowers to this one!! he he he!!!

These 2 are off to sit in the LOTV ideas to inspire monthly challenge which is use a sentiment. I love those Greetings Postmakrs, my friend Lou made me get them...she did....she forced me......well thats what I told Scott anyway :) !!!!!

We are having a vegging out kinda day today. Mo was poorly last night and I was up with the little guy twice in the night, he had a bad tummy ache and cold sweats, so weird, he was freezing but dripping with sweat :( poor guy. I snuggled him up and he settled back off to sleep around 2:30am, then was up again at 4:30am so we have been pootling around ever since, calpol, snuggles and coffee...lots of coffee... will be the order of the day I think ( though currently as I type he and daddy are singing along to the phineas and ferb title sequence....!!!)

Have an awesome day everyone

feeling funky on a friday!!!

Papers- Winter Wedding from Funky Hand.
Morning Peeps!!
I hope you are all waking up to a wonderful friday? I am. I have my hubby off for the day with me and some fathers day orders to get done so its the best kind of friday for me!!

I thought I would share a little box I have made this morning. I have had a stash of favour boxes since scott and I got married, I think I bought 200! I just love little boxes so I knew they would come in handy and this one is winging its way to my day with some pennies in for fathers day.

The papers are from the awesome new Winter Wedding download ...proving its not just for weddings or winter :) and the little tie is from the Wishes and Kisses cd rom. I used the uncoloured one and printed the tie onto a scrap of the winter wedding papers I ad left. Then it was just some nifty snipping with my scissors to make the shirt collar before attaching the tie on.

The 'DAD' I made with some old flower stems I had left over from making a card the other day ( I always keep those nifty bits of wire from them just incase!!) I die cut my letters from more scraps of the winter wedding paper and glued them onto the sticks! I love that bit, it looks so much fun just seeing them standing up from the box!!!

Right, thats me for today!! but before I go I mist just share this funny piccy of Scott and Mo last night!! we had to do the dreaded new trainer shop for Mo last night but he was such a superstar we got him a McDonald's. It was Despicable Me so you can imagine how excited Mo was by the toy, he LOVES Despicable Me minions!! and clearly Scott does too as he pinched the eyes and put them over his own. The mother and child sitting behind us were howling with laughter. I totally love that we are still a goofy family!!! but seriously there can be nothing better than making someone smile so I am doing the same for you today...here are my goofballs.....
Thank you for popping in on me!! Huge hugs Lou xxxx

a bit more fathers day!!

 Morning peeps!!

I have had a couple of super busy days so my bloggy has been sleepying while I got on with an induction day for my new job at Tesco's!! I am so excited about it!! I will be working 2 nights from 10pm until 7am which is just perfect as I know Mo and Poppy will be tucked up safe at home with daddy while I am working and I don't need to worry, perfect!!

So this morning I have been getting on with a few fathers day cards that I had kinda forgotten to add to my list of bits to make...gulp!! but these are my fav man cards to make, I love these little shirts so much and I tucked a little happy fathers day circle sentiment inside them too.

Now, when you sit at your table and all of a sudden think hmmmmmmm, the furball princess is kinda quiet and go to investigate why this is what you might find......
yup!! she is fast asleep in there!! she has been playing with this football for about 2 weeks now and managed to get the ball out of the 'skin' this morning. I went into the lounge to find her fast asleep in the shell!!! too funny!! so naturally I had to snap a piccy of it!! too funny!!

It is supposed to be sports day today for Mo but as yet I am unsure as its started to rain :( hoping it clears up before 2:45pm!!!!

Have an awesome day peeps! huge hugs Lou xxx

Morning everyone!!

I coloured them up with my promarkers and the cut them out so I could pop them up a little from the card base on some foam.

The sentiment comes with them and I stamped that onto a little label cut from the Fishtail layers stax and curled the end around my finger to make it all 'flaggy' !!! I added a little enamel dot to it. I love those too! they are fab!!

There are some new downloads hopefully going into the Funky Hand shop today and they are fabulous. I thoroughly enjoyed playing with them and set myself a challenge for a couple of non- weddingy makes too!!

So the top one just had to be a wedding card with those gorgeous hearts. I cut 2 triangles and the glued them onto my card and added a row of teeny punched flowers down the  join with some teeny blue gems in the centre. The sentiments are cut from another paper in the collection, I snipped them out and then inked around the edge. This card is a cute one at 4x4 size.

Download- Summer Wedding from Funky Hand
Flower cake digi from Funky Hand
this one above uses the new Summer Wedding download and I enlisted the help of the gorgeous flower cake digi for this one too! I coloured it up using my promarkers  and a good old distress and rippy feeling came over me for this one but I love the way it turned out.

 Download- Autumn Wedding from Funky Hand.
Beer Tankard digi from colour me Happy cd rom.

Morning peeps!!!

I love Saturdays!! Saturdays means family time and its also what I call my Little bit of Lou time day- that's the day when I crafty just whatever I fancy!!! and I LOVE it.

So I got totally spoilt on my birthday as you know and this little card has got some of the gorgeous yummies that my bestie sent me for my birthday on it. I am so blessed to have her and she always knows just what to send to make my day awesome.

I wanted to play along with the new challenge over on the LOTV ideas to inspire blog that is to use a sentiment so I tucked that gorgeous scroll in at the top, it just slips under the doily so sweetly, I love it.

I am popping her in the challenge over on the new Creative Romance challenge blog too as thats Anything goes.

I masked off the bottom of my Looking Glass stamp so she would fit snug on that gorgeous doily  and then played around inking the edges of the doily with tattered rose and vintage photo ink, added some yummy blue lace and a string of pearls,spritzed up a big white flower with some blue crafty notions spray and then tucked in some pink roses and then coloured some teeny white roses with my sandstone promarker to get them all to match it. I so LOOOOOVE me some Lou time!!!

I have saved up all my weeks Weight watchers extra pro points to get a mini chips,fishcake and mushy peas from my friends chip shop, it is by far the best one in Lincoln (the Fish King on the forum, North Hykeham) so if you ever come to Lincoln you know where to go for your chips now!!!! then we are going to take Poppy out for a lovely run on the common ....so I can walk off the chippies.....:)

Papers- Carta Bella Beach Boardwalk

sentiment- LOTV everyday grunge messages.
morning peeps!!!
squeeee!! not only is it a gorgeously sunny and delicious day here but there's a new Tiddly Inks image called Salty Kisses out too!!! isn't she just awesome?!!! 

Little poorly Mo and I had so much fun making this card yesterday, Mo helped with the waves!! we broke a costume jewelry pearls necklace up!!!  

I coloured her up with my promarkers and then made her a little wave scene to sit in!!  I dug through my little charms box and found a super cute starfish and tied it on with a squidge of twine.

Now my sentiment stamp I was sooooo happy with. I bought this set from LOTV on saturday when I was birthday day shopping and to be honest I didn't think it would stamp onto the yellow glitter card but it did an awesome job! so clear and crispy!! I was so excited about that!!!

Right, I need to go apply magic cream to Little Mo's arms ready for his blood tests.....Yes, I know I did that yesterday....and we sat in the traffic for 30 mins to get to the Drs and .........his appointment wasn't yesterday..it was today!! romfl!!! so another prescription for magic cream was filled and we are going today!!! I am keeping him home again today too, he has coughed and coughed all night again and has little black rings under his eyes :(
I have my Weight Watchers weigh in so I am hoping I have lost some...though knowing my luck I would be the person who puts some on!! 

I'll be back in a bit with my Passion for Promarkers Dt post!! I even used my gorgeous new Silhouette cameo for it!! squeeeee!!!

Skating by with a christmassy giftbag!!!

Enamel Dot.

Morning peeps!
I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend! I came over all christmassy this week so I dug into my DT box and found my fav Bo Bunny papers and just let myself pootle along making a giftbag.

I coloured Sookie up with my promarkers and then had fun distressing and tearing all my layers before sticking them all onto the little gift bag I found on my craft desk when I tidied up on wednesday!!!

I stamped the sentiment using memento London Fog because its just a touch gentler than the black one which went so much better with the papers. the black one seemed to scream sentiment at me and it didn't look quite right with the delicious papers!!

Well, I had better get a move on. Mo needs his bloods doing again today so we are off to the Dr's before school. Magic cream was applied on both arms at 5am this morning whilst mopping up tears :( poor little pickle. Double whammy today as its back to school which he is totally not looking forward to and bloods too :(

I have a list of cards as long as my arm to get done after having a lazy birthday weekend so thats me for today!!!

Have an awesome day everyone!

Summertime fishin' !!

Image- Fishing from mo's digital pencil.
Papers...errmmm, not sure, they came from the stash cupboard!!!
coloured with promarkers.

Afternoon Peeps!!!
I have had the best weekend. Yesterday was my birthday and I had such a super day. Hubby took me to leeds to Ikea to get some more magnetic pots for my board, then onto the LOTV shop open day (squeeeee!! I loved it! I was like a bunny in the headlights with what to buy!! he he he he!!!) and my buddy Lou made me the cutest birthday cake ever! ( I hope she took a piccy of it because I ate the huge white choccy button on it before I took a photo and then ate the rest in the car on our way to skegness!!!!) and we ended the day by going over to skegness and fetching my Silhouette Cameo...squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! so it was a totally awesome day and I was so spoilt buy my gorgeous bestie too. And I got so many birthday wishes on my facebook I felt like I was floating on cloud 9 so thank you all for making my day xxxxx

So this afternoon I had a little crafty time and I wanted to join in with the DP2 Summertime challenge so bad! I had a Dad card to make (arghhhh man card!!!!)  and those men love fishing in the summertime so that's what I decided on using!! I found a teeny piccy of a coca cola bottle in a food magazine that came through the door so I cut it out and slid it through a slit I cut in the bucket so he is taking his summer drink with him!! 
There's glossy accents on the bottle and water but I am not so sure it shows in the photo...might have to click on it to see if it shows when I've published this post!! lol!!!

Right, I have more stuff to do now so I had better get a wriggle on before I zonk out! we went for a wonderful walk along the common this afternoon with Poppy so we are all flagging a bit now!!

Thank you for popping in on me! huge hugs Lou xxx
