Papers- Down to my Bones mega pack from Tiddly Inks.

Helllloooooo again!!!

I told you I would be back! 2 posts in one day! go me!! lol!!

I love this Semi Sweet Sweet Tooth image, she is so beautiful, and it would of been a Tiddly crime not to match her up with those awesome Down to my Bones papers!! a bit of twine and some die cut la la land heart doily just finished the look off. I LOVE it!!

I am so into playing with making tags again at the minute, they are like quick and fun little makes, I might even punch holes in mine and turn them into a little art tag book with a D ring, I think i have about 10 now and they are all so different and fun.

I have 4 different tag dies ranging from small to big and I love them all!!

Pop on over to the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and see what my teamies came up with for fabby friday because oooooooooh they rocked it!!!

Bronte and Louis...

Papers- Bronte paper past freebie from Mo's digital pencil.
Yellow spotty paper...mmmm...can't remember!! lets call it...
 'left in stash pile and looked yummy'?!!!

Hi everyone!!
well it was a gorgeously snowy kinda day here today. I took some time to stare out of the window at the flakes tumbling down and have some crafting fun!!

Now, you will laugh at this one!!...I coloured my super cute little Louis...but the cardstock I chose sucked...I mean like really sucked!! I will not be using it again! lol! but all was not lost because I had a new bottle of crackle glaze to play with and decided this little guy would be perfect for it!!

To give you and idea of how much he needed rescuing..this is how he loooked before crackle glaze fun!.....poor lil guy looks like he has a huge case of chicken pox a la pants no blendy paper!!!
I pushed on though and finished his hair...( couldn't resist colouring them up like my little Mo and Dasher) and then it was time for 2 good coats of crackle glaze. I let it dry and then gave the little guy a good roll in my hands to bring out the cracks some more and then gave it a rub with some walnut stain distress ink.

I am so pleased I didn't trash it because it came out so cute! then I just had to print out the Bronte papers Maurie gave as a freebie ages ago, I chose the blue green one to go with the blues and greens in my colouring, layering it up with a little bit of spotty paper I found in my crafty stash pile on my desk.

I have finished my Twilight marathon and moved onto Blade now!! 2nd one tonight so have tomorrow night to watch the last one and....super exciting.....I get 4 of my new windows in tomorrow!!! eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep!!! we saved hard and can only afford 4 this time and then a few more in a couple of months!! wohooo!! our old ones are terrible!! the came with the new build it was and they suck! they let air in even when they are fully shut!! and Mo is super sensitive to wind and noise and that scares him so I can't wait for him to have a lovely well fitted window in.

Right, time for me to pootle off!! you must all be asleep from my waffling by now!!!

Sentiment- I heart you- Silhouette store.
Cardbase- Lori Whitlock pop out heart base- Silhouette store.

Morning all!!!

well its a hideously blowy and rainey day here...yuck!! but all is good because I have warmed myself up with a quick wryn make this morning!! oooh I love this stamp ( be warned...everything you receive from me will probably have this cutie stamped on it!!)

But seriously, she is just too cute, I might even be brave enough to say she is my fav wryn from the new releases...but that's only until I colour up the next one!! romfl!!!! lol!

I love cards with a bit of poparoo so I used one of the cardbase I have bought from the silhouette store and some delicious funky hand papers I had left on my desk! I love how it turned out! I saw the challenge over on papertake weekly of Fancy folds and just had to give it a whirl!! I haven't entered a challenge in so long so decided to go for it!!

Right, I need to scoot! I am having mummy and Grandad time today! we are going for breakfast....which is good because I only let myself have a yoghurt at 5:30am this morning in preparation and to say my tummy is grumbling would be a complete understatement...even the dogs ran away when I looked at them for fear I may eat them!!!! romfl!!

Have a fab day everyone, thank you for popping in

Hi everyone.

I am so very sorry I am a day late posting my DT challenge make for the DP2 challenge blog.

We very sadly lost Scott's Grandad very unexpectedly on wednesday and it left us all feeling very sad and not quite with it at all :( He was such a wonderful man, so quiet and gentle and he will be so very missed. We are so sad to of lost him, yet so happy he had such a long and lovely life and I will be forever grateful to him because without him, I would not have my beautiful family.

So onto my make. Our challenge this time is ...

 "Anything Goes/optional Warm"

so, Just choose at least one of Mo's images and create your own masterpiece (card, 3-D project, etc.) using this fortnight's "Anything Goes/optional Warm" theme. Up for grabs is a $5.00 voucher for Mo's online store!! 

I just had to use Ragged Maggie. She is just so sweet, keeping her little kitten all snuggled up with in her shawl. 

I just added a few little rolled flowers and pearls to embellie this one up, she really doesn't need much else bless her.

Right, got to go! there is a small boy wanting to have a draughts rally! the winner plays daddy!!

Coffee Run....

Papers- Affection and Affection too from Nitwits.
Morning all!!

Still have a little man down in the house but its ok because...wohooo! get me!! hubby's valentines card is in the bag!!! lol!! I had some extra time yesterday while the little guy was smooshed down on the settee with his dogs watching scooby so I had a little play with Coffee Run from Saturated Canary.

I love this image, she was just perfect for my hubby too because he loves coffee. We have had a tassimo machine ever since they first came out and he always gets the new model when its on offer! a little while before christmas he got the teeny new cute one for £30! bargain!! 

All she needed to be a super duper valentine was some gorgeous love themed papers and sentiment because she really does do all the work in that one lil image! love it!! I hot glued her on to keep her popped out because I have run out of the old faithful foam squares but to be honest the hot glue worked fabulously! I love a bit of pop!the centre of the heart and the sentiment have some pop too! I think he will love it.

Mo is a little better today. His temp is normal now and appetite is returning...made himself a salad a few mins ago but the stinky headache is still making him struggle some, medicine doesn't seem to touch it at all :( anywhoo, here is the salad he made himself! I caught him just wondering if he needed to add cheese sprinkles on the second one and his mouth looks all Elvis!!! (..please excuse my kitchen wall a la classy cardboard filling! we are part way through changing it round!!)

Thank you for popping in!

Afternoon everyone!

its time for a new challenge over on the the DP2 challenge blog and this time its one of my absolute favs, picked by our fabulous Pat its a good old free reign on whatever you fancy with...

Anything Goes!!

So whilst drooling through my Mos Digital Pencil images folder for which one to use (...and printing out and colouring up 4...I am so not the only person who does that right?!!!) I went for the stunning little Hush.

Oh I do love this one so much. You can boy or girl baby it, I went for girl! and the edges on the images are done so that they are soooo soft and the effect once you colour it up is amazing! almost makes me look like I know how to colour!! he he he!!

All I needed then was some stunning papers to pop with her and a splodge of distressing and glue! I even squooshed in some of my fabby new dies from my Doo Hickey club 3! oooh I love it!!

Well, I had better pootle of the pooter and get myself ready to walk 2 gorgeous furry peeps before we pick up their brother from school. He is soooo tired this week. The first week back is always a bit of a sensory overload for him so I am looking forward to the weekend.

Huge hugs for you all
