I had a wedding card to make for 2 special ladies who are getting married. I love weddings, weddings and new babies are my favourite cards to make and I LOVED making this one. Kody and Mae were just perfect because they look exactly like the 2 brides! (..though they are not cartoony they are just like these 2 cuties!!) so Kody was changed into a girl for this one and merged with Mae.
Then it was time to add some floof Lou style!!!

Right, time to get myself into gear! there is a cup of tea with my name on and I rather need it since we got up at 4:25am...sigh!! lol!!

Autumnal Alva Music.....

sentiment made up by me in word!!
Hi everyone!

Lou in with a squidge of an autumnal make today!! we have had a busy weekend after a water leak in our downstairs loo and I needed to escape into fantasy land after all the painting, new floor, new skirting and hum drumness of repair were done!!

I dove into my Bildmalarna bulk paper pack like an excited child into their christmas stocking when it arrived, its wonderful, all 12x12 and all very stroke only but I broke into one sheet to make this card!! ....and I still have a 6x12 bit left to make another day!!!

The sentiment I made up myself and printed off in word on my computer and then cut it out with the stitched circle die from Blueprints 18 set.

Thank you for peeking in

Papers- Teresa collins 'She said'.
Morning all!!

I hope you are all ready for that wonderful weekend feeling! I know I am. I love fridays. Scott has the day off on a friday and I love to hear him pootling around the house. It always makes friday feel so relaxed! we always have a special little treat ( it was clotted cream scones with jam from the bakery..yum!!)....

So I thought I would pop in and share my 'Casey' make with you all. I actually pootled out into my craft room for the first time in months yesterday! for some reason I had migrated to my dining table in the house but yesterday I cleared all my stuff back out to my craft room and made myself a teeny space to craft!! it was wonderful! its still a big mess in there as I left it as it was half way through my sort out and never really carried on but I think I might get back on the mission this weekend and sort it out some more!!!

and..oh my oh my!!!! has anyone else had the mashoosive spider visit them yet? we got our visit last night and I kid you not, I was almost sick!! I do not 'do' spiders at all and this is a pint glass over this big beast!! Luckily Scott came to my rescue with the glass over the top, card slidey under, throw spider outty door trick but I was literally a mm away from treading on him when I found it!! arghhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!

Thank you for popping in, I am off to enjoy some Scott time!!
