Pick of the Patch...........

Hello all! 

It's proper rain doom and gloom out there today so I decided to take a little spin with my polychromo pencils and the super sweet new Pick of the Patch image from Mo's Digital Pencil. But, I took a spin on my image choice again (...well, actually my little guy chose it as normal but I decided which image of the 2 gorgeous ones in the set to use!! lol!!!).

You see, I LOVE pumpkins. I do not know what it is about them but they just make me smile inside from ear to ear and of course, I love the taste of them too!!! so, I went for using the bonus image in the set. I decided to use the pumpkins on the hay bale.

Isn't the set so sweet? That little peep image will be my next make I promise!!! she's too darling to miss out on fully!!

The sentiment I used on my card is from my stash of MFT stamps. I think it might be my most used sentiment stamp ever, I just love it!!

Right, I'm going to go and deep condition my hair. I swear it's grown at least an inch this week! It's bonkers!! so I'm going to treat it to a lovely deep condition session and then have a bath. I've made myself some flaxseed gel today so once I've finished soaking my bones to get warm, I'm going to give that a try!

Thank you for popping in, Hugs Lou xx

Schoolgirl Zombie...........

Hello everyone!!

Well, in the event that I don't get so excited about the card I made for my Dream Team post tomorrow and share it today because I just can't wait...Nope...wait....that's just what I have done!!! but she's sooooo cute and I had so much fun with it!! so....I'm sneaking in with a post for you today using the terrifyingly gorgeous Schoolgirl Zombie.

And her sentiment!!! oh my days!! It's just perfect for a Monday! I couldn't help myself but make a funny little verse to go inside too! It had to be funny and zombie-themed so this is what I came up with...

I love it!! I've put it on my desk out in the crafty garage/ Little Mo Momelearning zone to keep me going tomorrow! I already know I'm going to be spent in the morning before I even get anywhere because its 5:41pm now and I am heading to bed already! I am exhausted after girly time took it's a toll on me this week.

I have new meds for it and am being referred to the hospital to see what they can do for me. I am having my bloods done on Tuesday too to check my haemoglobin levels just in case they are low but I think they'll be ok you know.

Right, my duvet is calling me! I'm going to listen to my body and go catch that train to the zzzzzz's!!!

Thank you for popping in, Hugs Lou xx

Urban Tilda...

Doo Hickey 22 set.
Morning peeps!

I'm in for you today with my Swedish Housecrafts DT make of the month and I have to say I absolutely enjoyed making this one. I just had one of those 'Let's really explore the whole of this stamp set' moments!! I LOVE those moments!!!

I took my inspiration from the stunning Magnolia stamps Urban Art stamp kit. It really is the most perfect set. Of course, you get your beautiful Tilda but then included in the set are these awesome little 'filler' stamps. I love how the little date stamps popped up on foam worked so nicely on this one...

I love that little butterfly from the Doo Hickey 22 die set too. Oh my, this die set! When I first got it I thought How am I going to use these little bits together? but it's a really good one!!!

And then that larger ticket from the stamp set again, on this one below...

I teamed that up by cutting out a few layers of the Doo Hickey 22 flower in both sizes. I scrunched them up and inked them to distress them and then carefully unfolded them and layered a few together for each flower, holding them together with a mini brad.

Then I just had to use the tree, flowers and bow from the die set too. With those delicious Maja Designs Vintage Romance everything just went together so prettily. 

Right, I need to scoot! Scott is getting his new shed today and he and Mo are up and ready for it to come so they can get building! but first, they need to empty the old one and get it taken down! Luckily it's another lovely day so we can just plop stuff on the decking! yey!!!......and I am also hoping that some old poop will get taken to the tip too!!!

Huge hugs for you all, have a wonderful wednesday, love Lou xxx

Paul Texting...

Hi all!!

ooooooh I love this make!!! I had such a blast doing it today! I've gone for a good old Mo's Digital Pencil golden oldie, Paul Texting.

I really do love a golden oldie and the magical thing about digital images is that you can size them exactly as you want for your project. So I was able to print him just the right size to fit onto the Lawn Fawn reveal wheel card base piece I had cut out for him. 

Now, I have to be honest and say I only have this many Copic ciao pens...

Yup!! that's it!! and I've had them for almost 14 years!! but they still work and have never been refilled or anything like that...though my colourless blender has run out totally now. I am going to build up my favourite colour combos of these though as the new promarkers just don't do it for me anymore. My favourite colour blends are no longer available and they run out shockingly quick now, which is such a shame because they used to rock my world.

But for so little colours in my Lou arsenal, I absolutely love how this came out, I made the image the focal point of the card with that fun little spinning element which is really perfect for 'jazzing up' a male card when you can't add the normal tonne of Lou floof of flowers and butterfly goodness!! he he!!

Thank you so much for popping in, Huge Hugs Lou xxxx

I used  Cupcake Monster for my make. I focused on the sentiment and one of the teeny weeny cute little candle monsters that come in the set! oh my!! I just love it!! I perched him atop the sentiment. Let's take a closer peek at him!!

awwwwww the cuteness!!!!! It's so sweet when a little monster peeks up on your card right?!! he he!!!

Well, I need to shake a leg! It's time for Momelearning and this mamma needs more coffee to give me power!!

Tiddly Inks challenge #229...Tiddly Tac Toe!!

Morning all!!

It's time for a new challenge over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog and I couldn't wait to share my make with you all! I've been sitting on it for a week trying not to post it early!!!!! but first, here are the challenge deets so you can play along...

Tiddly Tac toe!!
so choose any line of the Tiddly Tac Toe grid to play with, 

(**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 **)
And here is the inside of my card...

I just love those cute little gnomes!! there is so much to choose from in the Little Valentines Royal Fun set though, just look how cute they are!! That unicorn and her fairy are next on my list to use from it, so sweet!

Right! It's time for Momeschool so I need to shake a leg, glug my coffee and get on task!! tomorrow was our first full subjects day and he did so well. We just need to keep hot on it and not lose our momentum whilst we get used to those 3 subjects a day but we are still done by lunch and the afternoon is free for craft/cooking/reading which is fabulous!

Thank you for popping in, huge hugs Lou xxx

Good morning all!!

I'm super pleased you've popped in today because this little cutie, Megan, is just too super to miss!!! Don't you just love images that make you smile inside as you are colouring away? I know I do!!

Isn't she just the sweetest little superhero you've seen? I adore her! Teamed up with a few superhero papers and she's ready to go save the world!! These papers are just my favourite ones to turn to when I need some superpowers!! 

We have had another lovely weekend. We got a new friend for our bunny Marvin. He is called Buddy, which I find really rather magical as Dad's favourite singer was Buddy Holly!! They have bonded quite nicely so far which is so lovely to see as the colder months are coming up and they will so love to have each other to snuggle up to and keep cosy.

We had a lovely little drive out to the local car boot sale today and bought some freshly picked raspberries and carrots, then onto Hobbycraft to get Mo a black watercolour pencil for his collection and some fun fabric quarters for him to begin making the beeswax wraps he has learnt how to make and lastly, Asda for some plain white T-shirts for him to decorate. It's going to be a bit of a crafty afternoon week next week I think!!!!

I made Scott the most scrumptious chocolate, raspberry and chantilly cream cake today to celebrate those gorgeous raspberries we bought this morning. He is rather gorgeous so he is very much worth celebrating too!! he he!!!

Right, I need to scoot. My eyes are closing for me as I sit here typing. 7:30-8:30pm seems to be my limit for awake-ness still! though I am awake rather early so I think it must all even itself out somehow!!!!

Thank you so much for popping in, hugs Lou xxx
