Gorjuss Bumble Bee Girl...


Stamp- Bumble Bee Girl from Sugar Nellie.

Papers- My Dearest Sophia by Pion Design.

Morning all!

How are we all today? Mo has a riding lesson at 9am so I thought I'd nip into my blog before we leave.

Today's share is a make with a golden oldie (and sadly retired) Gorjuss Girl stamp from Sugar Nellie. I have a few of the old ones and have to say they are still my favourites. The quality of the stamps was just always so amazing from Sugar Nellie.

I coloured her up with my Distress Inks and added a little bling to her wings and tights...sooo hard to see in my poop Lou photography skills though!! lol!!

I also absolutely adore the Pion Desing papers from the My Dearest Sophia collection. The design on them is just so delicate and pretty. 

The little sentiment is a Taylored Expression one, along with the little tag die it is cut out with.

Right, must scoot and get myself ready for watching Mo. I have to admit I am still a little skittish after seeing him have his first fall a couple of weeks ago but he is a superstar. He got straight back on and hasn't once thought he wouldn't carry on.

Thank you for popping in, Huge hugs Lou xxxxxx

Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Unicorn...


Papers- Basic Grey Two Scoops 6x6 pad.

Coloured with Distress inks.

Morning all!

It's another Little Mo sleep in morning so I've had time to get the washer on and hit my little blog!! wahooooo!!!

Though in all honesty, that little guy can sleep in as good as his little body needs. We are so proud of him. Yesterday h had his interview at college for the next course he would like to step up to. He was nervous but he did really well and the course tutor came to talk to us afterwards. Mo had said he wanted to do Level 1 Animal Management but she said his grades were so amazing he could do Level 3 right away. She said he had spoken really well in his interview and explained that while he is very good at the academic side of things, he is really bad socially and didn't think he would manage Level 3 so she suggested he do the Level 2 if he would like to!!! oh my! he was just thinking Level 1 so the choice of Level 2 is just amazing! So he had an unconditional offer for both Level 1 and Level 2 and the lovely course tutor is going to send him some Level 2 example work to try to see if he feels comfortable with Level 2 before making a final decision because she thinks he'd be really good at it!! 

Anyways! enough proud mamma waffling on! time to chat about my make for today! 

I just couldn't resist the new Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Unicorn. She is just too sweet. Stamped out with my staz on jet black, I got to work with colouring the background first. It was a lot of splodging and spreading out of the inks but it looked so magical when I had done! then I got to work on colouring my little unicorn girl up. She is such a joy to colour she really is.

The papers are from one of my very, very stroke only because there are no more Basic Grey 6x6 pads!! I have had these pads since waaaaaaay back when I first started crafting and they are still the most beautiful ones. I will be genuinely sad when they run out because they are not all in digital format at Snap, Click, Supply yet and of course, Two Scoops is one of the ones they don't have in! 

Right, I'm going to dive into the cinnamon buns Scott has just baked ( well, not like baker style though, he bought them when we went to IKEA for our wardrobe drawers last week from the freezers in the marketplace bit so it's more a just put them in the oven job!! lol!!!) and have a cuppa.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!! Huge hugs Lou xxx

A little Lovebug!!


Image- Lovebug from Tiddly Inks.

Papers- Gnome Sweet Gnome paper pack.

Morning all! 

I was up at 2am again. It seems that sleep is an elusive thing the older I get! so Scott and I gave up trying to get back to sleep at 4am and came down. I made us a lovely omlette and toast each and we had breakfast together in the quiet whilst Mo still slept (...and I must's 6:50am he is still sleeping! I've got 2 loads of laundry done and made a card and he is still sleeping!! wahoooo!!!).

So this is the result of a little crafty time in the morning. Of course, the MFT Blueprints 1 die set is always a huge help with making a quick little card. I absolutely love these golden oldie die sets and I so wish they would go back to making more of them.

What are you all up to today? I am going to have a quick hoover through when Mo wakes up and then it's what we call 'chill day' here. I always make sure we have a chill day on a Wednesday because Mo is at college tomorrow for his 9am-2pm day and it still takes a lot out of him and leaves him pretty exhausted so today we just do whatever we fancy. I think I'm going to have a play in my crafty garage a bit more. I have a super cute new couple of Stamping Bella stamps to play with so I think that's my plan of action!

Have a magical day everyone! 

Huge hugs Lou xxxx

Image- Pineapple Girl from Mo's Digital Pencil.

Papers- Aloha by Designs By Dani.

Morning all! 

How are we all today? Here the sun is shining and it's such a pretty day.

Little Mo has been busy baking a nettle cake and is just having a bath while they cool so he can do his buttercream so I thought I'd sneak a quick blog post in to share my super cute Pineapple Girl make.

Isn't she just the sweetest? I coloured her up a few weeks ago with my distress inks and have only just got round to getting her on a card. 

Those gorgeous leaves are from one of my Magnolia Doo Hickey club die sets. I love them, they are perfect for palm looking greenery! the little Aloha sentiment is from one of my MFT stamps sets, along with the little hibiscus flowers at the bottom of the fronds.

The papers are some of my absolute favourites. They are digital ones so always there on hand to print out and use whenever I fancy. They are just such happy papers and who doesn't love happy.

I'm poping this cutie over in the challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil challenge blog. Please do remember to join in with their challenges if you have used a Mo's Digital Pencil image because challenge blogs are just so special and something we really need to keep in our crafty lives.

Well, I'm going to take my extra few moments of peace and make myself a coffee. I'm really trying to cut down on it to just a couple of cups a week now because as much as I love it, it doesn't love me and makes me a little anxious now and again. So this cup I will enjoy to the max!

Have a wonderful day everyone, huge hugs Lou xx
