Tiddly Inks challenge #181...Fairy Happy!!

Morning Peeps!!!
Its time for a fabulous new challenge over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog
This time its all about being....

Fairy Happy!!

So,grab your fave Tiddly Inks Fairy images/stamps and get your magic on!!

(**remember...We love to see any new creation, a card, 3D project, journal page etc 

but you must use a Tiddly Inks stamp or image **)

There are so many wonderful and whimsical fairies in the Tiddly Inks store, it really is quite hard to make a final choice of which one you want to use!! but in the end I went for Willow Greeting Fairy. I have her in digital and clear stamp so I went for a version of using both because I wanted to fill the front of my card with her.

And! get me!! I got savvy and used my silouette machine to cut round her because she is a .png it was easy to do! I need to practice a bit more with being brave and getting that border to be right on the edge of her but this time I really wanted that edge to make her pop from the layers of the card. The sentiment is done using the clear stamp set.

Well, I still have a very sore Scott at home. We went to the dentist yesterday and it was a dry socket :( so he has had it flushed and packed...with no numbing done first...ouch... and is hopefully going to pick up in the next couple of days. He is working from home because even moving around makes it quite sore :(

Beach Baby.......

Image- Beach Baby.
Morning Everyone!

Lou in for you today with a make using the fabulously cute Beach Baby. She looks so sweet looking over her free beach background that comes with her doesn't she?! awwwwww!!
I coloured her up all classy looking because she reminded me of a mini audrey hepburn!! he he!!!

So today I have Scott working from home. His mouth is so very sore, he hasn't slept in 3 nights so is hoping to get back to the dentists today for her to check it over for him. I cannot bear seeing him in pain :( I hope she can do something to help today.

Whale of a Time........

Sentiment- Whale of a Time.
Sentiment Banner- Banner scallop with hearts.

Morning everyone!

Its time for Fab Friday over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and this is my little Tiddly creation for the week!! and I couldn't resist having my first play with the gorgeous Whale of a Time.

So many times I read about these beautiful Orca whales in my facebook feed when people share the news of them being in captivity so I based my card around a time when they are all free to enjoy a beautiful safe sea as they would in the natural world and have a whale of a time. I know I am a dafty but in my own way it felt so lovely to think of them in this way instead of in those teeny tanks doing tricks.

I am not sure what we are up to today. Little Mo is at school in a bit and Scott is very sore today :( I have popped some aloe heat rub on his cheek, ear and neck and he has taken his painkillers so hopefully he will feel a little better soon. its so horrid seeing the person you love in pain :(

Huge friday hugs for you all, thank you for popping by

Dream Team blog hop...

Image- Fergus from the 6 Baby Fairies Boy set.

Morning everyone!!
Its that gorgeous time of month again for Mo's Dream Team Blog Hop! and this month's them choice came from our gorgeous Alice. She has chosen Die-Cutting, which is always a winner!! who doesn't love dies?!!

So before I waffle on about my lil Fergus creation, here's the blog hop order for you...

 DebbyLou HellenBecky .

Don't forget there are two $5 gift vouchers to spend in Mo's shop to be drawn from the participating Dream Team Designers comments so... make sure you pop in and comment on everyone's post for the blog hop to be in with the chance to win!!!

So, for mine I decided to go with one big and bold die cut using Wonky Stitched Squares Stax. Any form of stitched die is always a winner for me, I just LOVE them and as for the new baby fairies sets...oh my...they are just magical!! Here's a close up of my image and die cut...
Now, the thing I adore about this little fairy is that it is good to go for boy or girl.....which is good since I have absolutely no idea which flavour Baby Walton will be, just that whatever flavour it may be, it will be absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait to meet baby for a snuggle very soon.

I didn't want a wishy washy colour scheme because when us mummy's were all outside a couple of weeks ago cooing over our streets latest gorgeous mini peep the clothes on mini peep were bold and bright and just sooo cute! so I went with a good old red for the nappy on this baby and then dotted my blender pen on to get that floofy pants look! soooo cute!! then it was just a case of matching that in with cardstock and Lou Froo-ness on the nappy cake!!!

It looks sooooo cute! I was still finishing this up while watching 5 star babies last night! well...I like to cut things fine!! he he he!! but I love my lil pom pom 'cherries' on top!! 

Right, got to go. I have a sore hubby after having his wisdom tooth out yesterday and I just want to snuggle him better. It was a bit tough to get out and had to be cut into pieces to remove and he is very bruised and sore :( 

Huge hugs for you all, thank you for popping in, hugs Lou xxx

Baby Fairies...

Papers- MME Be Amazing.
Morning everyone!

I'm in for you today and I could not resist those brand new Baby Fairies! oh my! they were just too cute to pass up on printing and colouring right away!!! and of course! with the new .png files Maurie has been doing, those little baby fairies got merged right onto my fav background of the rustic windowbox.

The 2 fairies I used were Flidais ( the girl baby) and Ennis (the boy baby). I just LOVE them!!! Have you seen them? there are 6 delicious little baby fairies in each set, you won't want to be without them!! here they are...
Squeeeee! aren't they adorable!!! and do you know what? they really are magic because if you click on them, you ping right to where they are in the shop!!!!!

Today I will be relaxing a bit! It's that dreaded time of the month and to top that off, I managed to have an allergic reaction to my new Almond Hershey's Kisses last night! swollen tongue, stinging sore throat and funny breathing! I got a little bit panicky but luckily we have stocks of piriton syrup in for Mo so I had some of that and things quickly calmed down some! what a palava! and I will be avoiding almonds for quite some time...but not chocolate of course!!!

Thank you for popping in on me! I have been a shocking blog visitor lately so please leave me a comment and remind me to visit! I need to sort myself out!!

Hi everyone!!

Lou in with a post for you today and I just couldn't resist one of the BRAND NEW RELEASE IMAGES over in the Saturated Canary shop for my share. They are all gorgeous but this one screamed COLOUR ME!!! so I of course obliged!! she is just such a sweetie!! and she of course has to be some superlicious fun colours too!!

This card base is one of my absolute favourites, though I do make my own DP piece cut file for this one as I love the whole front 'step' to have the paper on without little gaps by the bottom sides.

I am just enjoying one of those rare Mo free because he's with Daddy moments! I must admit that they are really the only moments I don't worry at all about Mo when he is not with me so I indulge in things like baking ( apple cake done and homemade burgers just sitting in the bowl waiting for daddy to bring home mixed herbs!!) and surfing pinterest for cool stuff to try out!!! its bliss!!!!

Right! time to go! a beep from daddy tells me they are on their way home from golf with hungry tummies!! he he!! pannini maker at the ready mamma please!! 

Thank you for popping in

The bunny wobble and the peony......

Morning everyone!

I'm in for you today with some uber cute Stamping Bella cuteness! I have only just got round to playing with this gorgeous stamp I bought when they were new release but the school holidays and fun with my little guy came first! now he's back to school its mummy playtime!!

Its so sunny and pretty here today. I think I might just take some time for me today to walk for a bit. My mouth is a bit sore from yesterday's filling of doom at the dentists so some fresh air might just perk me up a bit.

(watercolour background and extra grass included in the download)

Good morning everyone,
Lou in with a post for you today using the stunning new Laura. I wanted to keep this card CAS because for me, the words are the important bit. 

It's been one of those weekends! there were wonderful parts and then parts where I really, really needed my Galations (....and maybe a good glass of whisky too!!!!!) yup! I get those blurghy times and they are kinda hurty aren't they? so I felt so much more at ease making myself a little CAS card and thinking about stuffs. It helps so much.

Isn't she just wonderful? here she is for you to click on to ping magically to the shop and pop her in your pail!! he he!!!

Right, the kettle has a cuppa with my name on it and its the last day of the holidays with my gorgeous lil man so I am going to soak up snuggles and just be at peace with myself today!!!

Thank you for popping in

Morning everyone!!
Well! my post was awake before I got going this morning so I am adding the piccies in now!!! romfl!!!!!!

Its my turn to Dream Team something in rubber for Penny Black Inc and oh boy did I enjoy this one.
My little guy and I are well into reading books at the minute and so I have been on a big bookmark making spree recently, but lets be honest, what's not to love about a quick craft to pretty up your book while you are not reading it!!

I chose the Fairy Sweet from Penny Black Inc (30-151) for this one ( don't worry digital image lovers! this cutie is also available in digital at Mo's store - 3 Baby Fairies.).

I stamped, coloured and glossy accented on those lil ladybugs too!! Here's a closer look to show the glittery magic on his wings.

Image- Awareness from Tiddly Inks.
Morning everyone!
Its time for fab friday over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and I finally got round to taking a proper piccy and writing a blog post for my little awareness make.

Here in the UK it we have World Autism Awareness week,from the 2nd of april until today, its one close to my heart with my little Mo so we worked together to produce something 'cool' for mummy's facebook profile picture. Mummy did the colouring and Mo did the writing!!

Mo is my universe. He struggles and has good times and bad times but he is an absolute little legend bless him.And the staging for this photo is full of Mo's favourite things, stones, gems, sticks and Harry Potter!!

This is the image I used, Awareness from Tiddly Inks. I am so in love with the fact that Christy did both a boy and a girl as girls are often forgotten about in terms of having autism and getting it diagnosed.

Right, I've waffled enough.I am off for another cuppa before the man comes to fix the clock on my cooker! I keep thinking I've got an hours grace to cook tea when I havent!! lol!!
