You can do it Tilda....

Good Morning everyone,

I'm in with a couple of posts for you today and the first one is my Swedish House Crafts DT post.

I fancied making something a little different this week and went for a little gift to go in the Slimmer of the week basket at my Slimming World group for this coming Saturday.

Fixer Upper You can do it Tilda & wood wall and the little Fixer Upper Breathe text were just so perfect for this job with her super sweet little fist pump and those beautiful words.

I stamped Tilda first and then masked her up to stamp the little wooden wall twice. Then I fussy cut her out and added some colour using my promarkers. I die cut a tag shape wit dies from my stash and then covered it with some old Magnolia stamps papers. Boy oh Boy I miss them making papers like they used to, they were the most delicious papers! I mounted Tilda onto a little foam so she stands out even more. She looks so super sweet ready to inspire someone, doesn't she? 

I stamped that beautiful sentiment and then heat embossed it to make it pop from the background, look how pretty it looks with its shine!!

I still very much love using the little Gummiapan Dies Button Heart to add a little love into my projects. I think it is probably my most used die!! I tied a little twine through it to finish it off.

And what's at the back?!! it's my little offering for the basket, 2 yummy Alpen Light bars for someones Healthy B treat! It's so lovely to take crafting into my normal little routine and use it for something useful. I really hope I can inspire someone else to do the same, that's the fun of crafting after all! 

Right, time for me to get a coffee and attempt to wake up properly! I've had a bit of tummy pain this weekend (...totally caused by eating a yummy carvery on Saturday I think, eyes bigger than my belly for all the yummy veg!!!!) so today I want to catch up on a few of the things I didn't get done over the weekend!!

Thank you for popping in, huge hugs Lou xxx

Morning everyone!

I can't believe another weekend has zapped by and left me with Dream Team posting day again!!

And I just couldn't resist a little Get Well kinda make using the new and so so cute, Boo Boo. Click on the piccy below to be pinged to it's spot in the shop if you neeeeeeeeeeeeeed it as much as I did! oh, the absolute cuteness!!
And that gorgeous little sentiment is one of a choice of 2 that come with this little cutie when you purchase it! I love it so much!!!

I haven't dressed a photo in ages but this one totally called for it!! a little visit to my Little Mo's first aid kit and I had all I needed to make a cute little scene to pop this little card in. His little animal plasters are too sweet to pass up this opportunity!! lol!!

We had such a lovely weekend. On Saturday we went out for lunch and I ended up spending most of the afternoon in bed with a really nasty pain in my lower left side while the boys did man stuff in the front garden with the new gate posts!! then on Sunday, we woke up nice and early and we went bowling. I can't bowl yet but I felt a bit better and had a lovely black coffee whilst I watched them bowl and then a little catch up with one of my loveliest childhood friends who was there bright and early to get some bowling practice in (...she is an absolute legend at bowling!!) which was just lovely. Then a quick ride to Wickes for Scott to buy more manly stuff for doing the gateposts and I  spent the afternoon being his apprentice while Mo chilled inside with his movie, Swallows and Amazons, (...for the 12th time.....)!!

Then after tea, I got some time to craft away at this super cute card while the men of the house watched a bit of Harry Potter (.....not even going to attempt to count the number of times we have watched that peeps!!!)

Thank you for popping in! I need to whip up another post for my Swedish House Crafts DT make for today now so pop back in a little while for that if you like!!

Huge Hugs Lou xx
