A little bit of Lou time....!!

Stamp- Looking Glass from LOTV.
Sentiment-Set 23 Girlie Banners from LOTV.
Doily die- Summer Doily from crafty sentiments.
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!!!

right got to scoot, we are going to treat ourselves to a little chippy shop dinner for a treat for Mo. 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 I can walk off the chippies.....:)

I'll be bloggy wombling later when we get back so huge hugs for you all and I'll see you all later!!!
