Hi everyone!!! I'm back!! dogs walked,little guy at school, loo's bleached and cuppa by my side!!! and this time its my DT make for the Passion for Promarkers challenge blog.

This week’s challenge which has been set by Julie from Team 1 and she has given us the theme of...
 “summer lovin’”  
Julie would like you to use your images that show something that you would do in the summer i.e. sit on the beach, eat an ice cream, play in a paddling pool, the options are endless.  Whatever you use please remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card.  Don’t forget, as always, to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Letraset products (i.e. promarkers, flex markers, aqua markers, tria markers, metallic markers or neon markers).
Our generous sponsor this week is Whiff of Joy stamps and Katharina is offering 1 stamp of the winner’s choice (but it must be in stock). 
whiff of joy

I chose one of my super cute little Heather Ellis digi's. I have had them for such a long time and keep forgetting about them so I went for the gorgeous little girl with the butterfly and just splodged bits on until I was done!!

I love this sort of card, the ones where you just pootle along doing what you fancy are the best. Its so relaxing. I have seen so many friends stop making this year due to loss of mojo so I think these days of just enjoying my hobby really are the best.

Right, off to make myself a lovely crab stick and egg salad. We were up at the usual 4:20am this morning so it feels like dinner time to me!! he he he! I have a huuuuuuge pile of ironing to attack and another load on the line and a craft room to tidy (...yup...still....!!!!)

Thankyou for popping back in on me

Tiddly Inks challenge 137...Make it mini!!!!

coloured with stabilo crayons.
Shrinkies clear plastic.
Morning everyone!
its time for a new challenge over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and this time its one of my absolute favourites....

Make it Mini !!
( so think teeny projects, ATC,mini cards,etc)

I decided to go for something totally fun. I love fun!!! My little Mo is completely taken by the loom band craze so I decided to make him a charm for a jungle coloured loom band bracelet (**** warning***...once you have done this once your small people will be constantly rifling through your stamps to pick another one for you to do** romfl!!)

I stamped out one of the little monkeys from the Wryn Monkey around clear stamp set, snipped him out leaving enough room to ounch a couple of holes to pop the loom band through to attach it to the bracelet and then coloured him in using little Mo's stabilo pencil crayons. They are awesome for shrinkies colouring as they are quite creamy and blendy.

Then it was just a case of shrink away with my heat gun. (I popped 2 little bracelet rings through the holes to keep them open whilst it shrunk so I could thread my loom band through afterwards).

Its so cute and Mo loves it! right, I am off to walk the dogs before it gets to warm for them to enjoy it! Mo is super excited because his class is off to the park for the morning for a treat, how awesome is that?! I think its just fantastic. He has his tennis racket at the ready and we are popping to the shops to see if we can find a mini chess set for him to take too as he is really into chess at the minute!

Have a great day everyone! huge hugs Lou xxxxx
