Got the Wreath.........

Image- Got the Wreath.
Hi everyone!

I'm in with a make for you today featuring the wonderfully cute Got the Wreath. Just look at the cuteness! (...and of course, if you click on it you'll be magically pinged to it's lil place in the shop!!!)
I decided on a boy themed make for this one so I grabbed my fave colour combo's and just had fun colouring it up and I so loved that little Happy Christmas sentiment  that came with him so I had to use that too!!

The little snowflake border around the image mat is from my Doo Hickey 2 set. I've been using that set loads the past few days, it really has some super fun little elements on it that I can't resist once I get that festive feeling!!!

This weekend I missed my Grandad so very much. I can't work out my heads way of processing it, some weeks I am good all week but then just certain little things really set me off. On saturday I woke up just missing him and it lasted all weekend....he would so kick my butt if he knew I was being so melancholy but today I feel so much better about it all. 

Thank you for popping in! Hugs Lou xx

Tilda with Little Rudolph..........

Magnolia christmas tree,snowflake border
and large snowflake from Doo Hickey 2.
Hi everyone!!

I'm going out of my brain crazy trying to keep myself busy today while I stalk my postman.............gently crafting away whilst awaiting the lovely plink of my Magnolia Calendar kit through my letterbox....................

I mean it's not like I don't have an abundance of seriously cute Tilda so I decided to stamp up one of my newest additions to my of my newer additions to my collection of magnolia cuteness!!! bwah ha ha ha ha!!! Luckily Suha over at Swedish Housecrafts makes sure she has the older cuteness in as well as all the sparkly new stuff.I know it's an older one but I can't resist the cuteness of the little rudolph on this one!! just look how cute he is close up.....awwwwwwwwwwwww...........
I decided to make a super fun little christmassy wall hanging using the Recipe card Doo Hickey as a base for my sticky on stuffs!!! he he!! a bit of die cutting fun and fussy cutting relaxation (....there was totally none of that "Postman, I am going to snip you if you don't get here soon" thought process going on...I promise.......).

I used some of my Doo Hickey 2 christmas dies to add a little snowflakeyness to the top, tree's for her to be surrounded by and those gorgeous big snowflakes for the hanger part. I tied the strings through the holes on the flakes.

Right, I'm going to go and fetch Mo from school now and hand over stalking duties to Scott who is working from home today (....which is a good job or Mo might of been walking home incase the postman arrived while I was out......!!!!).

Huge friday hugs and thank you for popping in, Lou xxxx

Winter Fox....

Image- Winter Fox.
Morning everyone!

I'm in with my Dream Team make for you today and I've been playing with Winter Fox. He is just the sweetest image ever!! Oh I do love him and his little basket. I totally let out a little squeeeeee when I saw him....took me forever to choose which image though from all the new ones, had to resort to a squidge of help from my wonderful Erin to choose!!!! but here he is...of can click on him to be magically pinged to the shop to get him...I'm sooo helpful like that!!!!!

The sentiment that comes with him is just so sweet. I love that whimsical mix of writing so much. I couldn't resist popping it down by his feet and making a shaker by cutting out some of the space behind him! If you want to see the process of how I did that please pop on over to the Bella and Bronte Clubhouse page on facebook where I popped a little slideshow of the workings of my daft Lou mind!! he he!!! 

Well, I need to get ready for the day really. I've got the school run to do, pawsy pees to walk, telephone consultation to do with Mo's consultant about his new meds and a little bit of babysitting too and all before 12pm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you so much for popping in on me, hugs Lou xxx

Hippo cuteness.........

Image- Holly's Hippo from Tiddly Inks.
Tree - Magnolia tree from Doo Hickey 2.

Morning all!! It's a Tiddly Tuesday kinda day for me! I so had to sit on my hands all weekend not to share this one!! I LOVE how cute it is! Did you all see the gorgeous new images in the Tiddly Inks shop? they are just too cute and who can resist a hippo?....Not me that's for sure!!!

I used the plain version of Holly's little hippo for this because I knew I wanted to stick a little heart on its butt!!!

This year I am doing Scott a different kind of advent calendar. We have had such a strange year with everything and he has been my absolute rock and such an amazing support. So this year I am doing him a little '25 things I want to thank you for' tag advent calendar. I will give him a tag everyday to peg onto a little line of twine and each tag will have an extra tag at the back for me to write on. The first one will be so special so Hippo just had to be my first one.

Right, I need to get my butt into gear. We are all so snotty from this yucky virus that is hanging around, it's just awful, so we are all struggling to get going in a morning at the minute! juts call us the family of snot!!!

Thank you for popping in, huge hugs Lou xxxx

Mummu Dancing (Pre-coloured)...

For Mini Lightbox- printable acetate

Hi everyone! It's Lou in for you today with a make using one of my absolute favourites of Maurie's characters, Mummu. She is just such a magical character and she is one of those images that feels so much like a 'real' person to me when I colour her she just comes alive!!.....BUT WAIT!!!!!!!! I totally didn't need to colour her because this little gem of a Mummu comes pre-coloured!!

Yup, Maurie already did all the hard work for us on this cutie so if you are a print and go kinda crafter, she is just perfect for you. This is what she looks like in the shop....
Isn't she fabulous?!!! All I needed to do was add some gorgeous snwy shaery bits for her to get her winter dance on!! sooooo sweet!! So, Lou you love colouring, why do you need her pre-coloured you ask?!!!...... why did I need her pre-coloured??? well, my first make was for my super cute mini lightbox!!

I printed Mummu Dancing (pre-coloured) with her sentiment onto my fabulous printable acetate! oh I love this stuff so much! and of course, it's just perfect for mini lightboxes because it's easy to trim to make my own bits to slide into it! wahoooooooo!!!! 

I can't wait to try a few more of the pre- coloured images the same way now!! it's so much fun to customise this little lightbox!!! Thank you for popping in, hugs Lou xxx

Image- Elphaba.
Chippie frame- Delicate Love Rectangle.
Hi everyone!

I'm popping in before I zonk out in bed. Herceptin injection this week and a lovely busy weekend have caught right up with me and I feel like a zombie!!! I've got a snuggly warm wheaty bag on my knee as I type and I can feel the zzzzzz's tapping on my shoulder but I just had to share my MIC gals make for today!!! she's too cute to leave sat on my crafty table alone!!!

I decided to alter a little notebook from a pack of 3 I 'needed' to buy in Lidl a few weeks ago!! ...of course, I will probably never be able to make myself write in this little notebook so I don't spoil it but I did so enjoy making it.

That little Delicate Love Rectangle frame is just so beautiful to work with and Elphaba is just too sweet. I coloured her up a little while ago and have been hoarding her ever since!! he he!!!

If you are quick, make sure you pop into the Make it Crafty store before the offer ends!!! there are around 21 hrs left to get 20% off store wide.

Right, the zzzzz's are in full force now so I'm going to go before I end up drooling all over my pooter keyboard!!! Thank you for popping in on me, huge hugs Lou xxxx

Elf Delivery Service......

Morning all! 

I need to pop out in a little while so I thought I would share a little Tiddly Tuesday make with you before I go! and oh this lil guy too cute?! I know he is!!!

I fancied playing a little with dimension and a lot of white and the Lawn Fawn Puffy cloud border die and scrumptious White Opal liquid pearls just rocked that for me. I lightly distress inked the edges of my little snowdrifts so they stood out and added a little foam tape for extra pop-ness!!!

I couldn't resist some little sprigs of festive holly for the corners of my little image matt piece and the little bell holly sprigs in the Christmas Wishes clear stamp set were too sweet to pass up on using. A splodge of colour and a fussy cut later and they were added to finish off the card. Sometimes CAS without a tonne of papers used is just so much fun.

Right, I need to scoot. Thank you for popping in, hugs Lou xxx
