Peace, Love, Hope...

Morning all!!

I'm in for you today with my Dream Team post and a little something out of my Lou cosy slippers comfort zone!! Prismacolor pencil colouring!! oh my!! but let's be honest..this little cutie is just the perfect image to make those new colouring medium nerves evaporate...Just look at it...

Peace Love Hope
awwwww! the cuteness!!

I really am enjoying trying out these pencils though. I bought them secondhand from my lovely friend Sue who was having a bit of a crafty declutter again. I've been looking at them for quite some time but one of my BFF's Lucy showed me Sue's post and I just felt it was the right time to give them a go. It's definitely a learning curve and I am very much riding off youtube tutorials for colour blends but its sooo good to try something new.

We have has the most beautiful Christmas break so far. Lots of family time, visiting my gorgeous big sister, Christmas day in our trio bubble, Scott's family on boxing day which we always love, walking, a visit to mo's favourite place, Yorkshire Wildlife Park, and some lovely chilling times at home too, we just seem to of got the mix so perfectly this year. Today we need to do a little shopping, we are all out of loo rolls and fresh veggies!! but that's all we have planned. I've even managed to keep right on top of my workout DVD schedule!!

Have a magical new year everyone.Thank you for popping in, huge hugs Lou xxx

Morning everyone!

I'm in for you today with a super cute make featuring Fruitcake

I've nowhere near made enough christmas cards this year but this little cutie sat on my desk spurred me on to getting on with the job!!

And if you click on the piccy of her below, you'll be festively pinged to her home in the store so you can get making with her too!! she's just too cute not to buy!!

We had a gorgeous day yesterday celebrating our Little Mo's 14th birthday....I cannot believe he is 14 already!!! but I'll go with it because he is still squishably cute!!!

Right, I really do need to scoot, I've been on my treadmill for 3K so I am an actual sweaty beast who needs a shower right now!!! all in the name of attempting to keep fit....not much fun with a streaming runny nose and sore throat but well worth the pain if I can keep myself healthy!!! lol!!!

Tilda tracks Santa....

Morning peeps!!

I'm in with a post for you today. I have been excitedly opening the days of my Magnolia stamps and Dies- Christmas Calendar 2018 and I couldn't wait to ink up my Day 1 Tilda with the little map!!

My little Mo and I always follow NORAD tracks Santa and I decided to do a little Tilda Tracks Santa kind of christmassy card!!! And of course, I needed a few of my older Magnolia stamps to help me along, the fir trees ( though I cut the little one off the right side and just kept the 2 that nestle together and then masked my Tilda stamp so they went behind her), and the little Santa is coming to town sentiment circle. I love how Magnolia stamps are just timeless and go together no matter which releases they are from!!

I paper pieced her trousers and bow using the scraps from my delicious Maja Designs Christmas Season 6x6 papers. And of course, the little oval behind her and the papers on the card are the Maja Designs Christmas Season 6x6 papers too. They are just too pretty not to use!!

Just look how pretty the little early bird die was that came with the Magnolia stamps and Dies- Christmas Calendar 2018. I inked the edges a little and added a little fluffy snow to the top.

And that's me for today!!!! We are off to pick up our new car today. It's not brand new but it's new to us!! I can't wait. I've wanted a volvo for so long and now....well...I have one!!! wahooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

Thank you for popping in, Huge hugs Lou xxx

It's time for a new challenge over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and it's our last challenge of 2018!!! of course, we just had to go with the holiday season for our last challenge so....

Let's Be Merry!!
so, create something with any choice of Tiddly Inks image/stamp in a way you love! 

 (**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 **)

I just couldn't resist another play with those amazing Studio Light dies I bought myself. Oh my goodness! there is just something so beautiful in making something for yourself and I am really enjoying doing that at the moment. I can't find myself a little roladex to start storing them on but I have attached 2 wooden dowels to my crafts board behind my desk and am just happily posting them on there!!!! I LOVE it!!!

Right, I need to get a wriggle on!! I have a little man to take to school, pawsy peeps to walk and a gorgeous husband to meet in his dinner hour for a little GAP sale shop!! he he!!!

Thank you for popping in, Huge hugs Lou xxxx
