Porch Tilda..........

Stamps- Porch Tilda.
DooHickey Dies- Grandpa's flower leaf.

Phewsh!! am on a painting break!! Having chemo makes me a bit tireder than I normally would be so while the 2nd coat on our bedroom is drying I am having a bloggy break to share this little card with you that I made on yesterday's paint break!! (....well, sitting down is resting in my eyes right?!!).

If you missed the Magnolia stamps pop up box 3 then you need to pootle on over to Swedish House Crafts and order some of the scrumptiously cute stamps and dies that came in it. Oh my do I love them!! 

I also used one of my Little B's Block Out dies for this card. I love how it makes such a simple but really effective cut out sentiment with the Kraft card showing through and of course....I couldn't resist using that gorgeous Small Daffodil die either!!! I nestled it in between some pretty flowers and those wonderful DooHickey leaves.

Oooooooooooh my arms do feel like jelly!!!! I am most looking forward to my baked sweet potato to umpf me back up for the next coat of paint activities!! I may be pooped out but it does feel so very good to have a fresh coat of paint on. I've finished our little En Suite and it looks so wonderful. The grey bathroom paint I chose has a special little glitter pack you can add to it. I chose silver and it's a subtle beautiful shimmer when the sun catches it, luckily our En Suite is just small so there was plenty left for me to carry the theme of glittery bottom and whisper white top into our bedroom.....I am actually like Lady Glitter Sparkles from Trolls!!!!

Right, time for me to pop off and see what I fancy colouring now...see!! waiting for paint to dry isn't that boring when you do it Lou Style!!!!! Thank you for popping in, Lou xxx

Bright and Zingy 2nd birthday cutie....

Image- Twins at 2.
(...I only used one!!!)

Good morning everyone!!

I'm in with a make for you this morning sharing a card I made using the Twins at 2 image from Mo's Digital Pencil. It is soooo good that this image comes with 2 separate little girls that you can merge together because for this card I only needed one!!

It is for the birthday of a little girl that I don't know very well but often see around and the other day I saw her walking with her Daddy with her dolls pushchair so I just had to use this image! I merged a little number 2 onto the little heart shaped handbag she is carrying as it was Phoebe's 2nd birthday that my BF needed the card for. Too cute!! I love the way I coloured her trousers too! just 3 colours in lines but so effective.

My BF said that Phoebe's mum loves bright colours so I went for one of my favourite paper pads ever, American Crafts My Girl. It has the cutest mix of zingy prints and colour combo's in there and I knew they would be perfect for the way I had coloured up my image ( day I will learn to pick the papers first!! bwah ha ha ha!!!).

Right, I had better go. I need to eat my breakfast and then get the last coat of paint done in our En Suite bathroom before the school run!! Then I need to do another couple of coats in our bedroom but it looks so fresh and lovely when its newly painted I don't mind one little bit, it's like crafting on my bedroom walls!!! he he!!!

Thank you for popping in, hugs Lou xxx
