Space Nerd....

Image- Space Nerd.
Morning all! 
I am quickly popping in this morning with a make using the fabulous new  Space Nerd.

I printed her on textured paper, it gives a really lineny effect when you colour and it looks so neat!! Then I just dug out a few of my rubber stamps from my stash to finish it off.

We have been up since 2am as little Mo was unwell...though he seems ok now, just a bit clingy and sleepy!! but I am soooooo sleepy!! lol! he is currently having another day of Narnia film marathon!! today he is going backwards from 3 to 1!!! oh well, its a bit yuck outside so I guess movie day when you are feeling a bit pants isn't too bad?!!!

Right, I am off to experiment with mini pumpkin making in my cake pop machine for saturdays halloweeny night! we get lots of mini spooks here so I like to have plenty of spook treats in!!!

Spooky Dooky!!

The Big One...

Image- The Big One.

Morning everyone! I'm back with a 2nd post for today as its my Dream Team day for posting and I couldn't resist sharing a little pumpkin patch cuteness for you today. The Big One is quite literally a golden oldie for me on this make because I tried really hard to get the golden autumnal sky in the background behind this little sweetheart.

This pumpkin thing will be very much our thing this week as we get ready for halloween, I cannot wait! we bought our first 2 little ones yesterday ready for starting to decide what we are going to do with them this year! I have already managed to have a costume change from zombie school girl to Maleficent so I wonder what I'll actually make it to being this year!! lol!!

Thank you for popping in

Santa's Elves........

Morning everyone!! I am in bright and early with a post of uber cuteness!! how adorable are these new little elve's from Birdie Brown??? I adore them!! and I just had to have them!! This one is for my gorgeous little Mo (I am so determined to get all their christmas cards done well within time this year because last year was a bit of a rush!!) and its full of his favourite colour , blue.

The little sentiment stamps are just fabulous. Using my die cut circle as a template under my stamp block I curled around my 'Happiest of Holidays' next to that adorable little elf!! awwww I love them!!!

Warm winter wishes...

Morning everyone!

Its fab friday over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog so I get to share this cutie I have been working on this week!!

I decided to have a little fun with my yummy new Die Namics Stitched mountain range dies. They are just delicious! so I decided on making a little card that would stand up all by itself by getting out my Die Namics Blue Prints 9 to create a bit of a scene. Oh my, I had a tonne of fun with this!!

I fussy cut wyrn and popped her up on some foam to get her to pop from the card too, underneath I stamped her twice to create a little swoosh from the skating effect but you can't see it in this piccy...derr Lou!!!

A few glossy accents drops of snow and it was done! I love this kind of card, I am going to need to make some more now!! he he he!! it stands up all on its own and looks so cute!!

Rigth, I am off to enjoy the first day of the school holidays! we are still in our pj's and just chillin' but we are going to go out for a treat lunch.

Huge hugs for you all

Winter Blog Hop...

Image- Harry needs a hug.

Morning everyone! its time another Dream Team Blog Hop and oh boy is it going to be a gorgeous one because our Gretha has chosen the theme of Winter. OOOOOH just think of all the Mo's Digital Pencil gorgeousness that comes in the form of wintery images....

So you should of found your way to me from the fabulous Debby but just in case you get lost along the way here's this month's Blog Hop run....

Don't forget there are two $5 gift vouchers to spend in Mo's shop to be drawn from someones comments so make sure you comment on everyone in the blog hop posts.

I just had to go with a super cute Harry christmas image. This one is a golden oldie but just one of my fave Mo characters. Harry is just the cutest pig and this image of him with his teeny mouse buddy helping him put the star on the tree just makes me feel warm and christmassy inside, I love it.

I loved adding a few dots of falling snow onto him too. I decided the tree was outside nestled in soft fresh snow! 
Thank you so much for hopping in on me, now please pop on over to Becky and see what she has got to show you.
