Morning peeps!

Well, I've done the school run, walked my pawsy buddy and absolutely frozen my butt off! come in and defrosted with a lovely cup of boiled water and I've made it up to my craft room for a quick bloggy catch up.
Grandad's funeral on tuesday was beautiful. The sun shone for him which he would of loved. The church service was lovely and we let out some of his friends pigeons and 2 of Grandad's  own pigeons to fly Grandad away.Then close family went on to Alford Crematorium which is just beautiful.

I'll be honest, I am finding it very hard and missing my Grandad greatly but I am muddling on through it in the normal Lou way. He wouldn't want me to be sad, but then I am not sure he realised just how loved and special he was to everyone so he will just have to forgive us all a bit of a slip in our braveness!! he he!! so yesterday I had a lovely bit of time colouring to keep myself busy.

I couldn't resist colouring up one of Krista's new images released over in the Make it Crafty store. I printed out 2 and went for the gorgeous Pretty Pumpkin. How could I not with all the yummy autumnal weather? I had the most fun doing her glittery pumpkin!! a good splodge of clear glitter pen and then glossy accents on top made it look so pretty.

Right, I am going to get another hot drink now and then have some fun with my stroke only Maja designs Sofiero papers from the Ribbon Girl pressie my gorgeous friend Wendy sent me, some days it just calls to me so much I have to go with it and cut some!! lol!!!!

Thank you for popping in, huge hugs Lou xxx


  1. Gorgeous card, love the colours. Hugs to you at your sad time, I'm sure your Grandad knew how much you meant to him and he will always be with you
    Hugs Kaz xx

  2. Ooh I just LOVE this!! I know I'm going to want to have her. She's fab for fall!! LOVE your colouring on this Lou and the card design brings it all together so beautifully. I love your roughed edges. I can never get mine to look quite so worn and I do love that effect. Glad your Grandad's funeral went well (as well as can be expected!) they are not easy days to weather. We visited Greg's Gran while we were home on Spring break with the kiddos and she's about to turn 103!! Incredible really and she was up and chatting with the kids. Lovely to read you're brave enough to cut into those stroke only Maja papers! I'm such a woos with mine! I have a huge 'stroke only' stash. But the joy is in the creating with them. So I need to do it more. Sending big hugs my darling pal, Wends xoxo


One little comment goes a long way!! your special words always make my day :)
