So it was a case of super quick, super simple and super cute!! and hey presto...a la done!!! and now Scott is watching the rugby so I might get chance to play at making another one...if my eyes stay open long enough!!! lol!!

Huge hugs for you all, hope you've all had a day as fab as mine!!

Autumn Magic..........

Image- Autumn Magic from Saturated Canary.
Morning all!

I thought I would pop in this morning with my latest make using the stunning  Autumn Magic from Saturated Canary. I love this one because autumn and all those lush  golds and browns and crunchy leaves is just one of my favorite times of year.

I was in a Lou froo mood too so made a couple of my fav big flowers, DieNamics Rolled Daisy, and then scooched a couple more in from my stash a la flowers in some lovely autumny colours!

I am nervous today. Its the first step on Little Mo's assessment for his EHC and he is being observed today. Scott and I have a meeting with the lady who is observing him today first so we can chat to her and I always find this bit a little hard because I get so nervous. I am a very pro active mamma when it comes to my little man so lets cross everything and hope he behaves in his Mo way rather than freezing because there is someone different in the room which is what he normally does!

Right, got to go and get myself a cuppa and try and chill out a bit! roll on 9am meeting so its done and dusted and I can calm down!!

Turtley happy.........

Hi everyone!!! happy monday!!

This little turtle from the Polynesian Paradise stamp setI also wanted to have a good play with my DieNamics BluePrints 26. So I decided a make with the 2 together would be a tonne of fun!! I LOVE that stitched and curved cardbase piece that comes in the set, its so easy to pop a card together when you are given the base matting!!

The ScrapCake summer city papers are just perfect for the Polynesian Paradise stamp set to go with. I even used a scrap I had left from my cardbase to paper piece the little guys shell!!

I popped my little turtle dude on the smaller balloon die and cut the happy out of the larger one and replaced it with a bit of the yummy patterned paper. 

Well, when this posts I will be a couple of hours into my nightshift...yawn!! lol! but I love my job so its not a hard one to do even though I am still not feeling top Lou self its still a lovely little job to pootle along at and it feels so good putting bits on the shelves and filling them back up, it doesn't take much to make a Lou happy!!

Making a scene.......

Stamps- Edwin with Derby Hat.
Hiking background

Morning everyone!
I am still slowly pootling back to craftyness after my bug so I went for a nice and easy plaque making session this morning!! I stole one of little Mo's plaques he bought from the craft show a few months ago and got busy!!

I stamped right onto the palque ( ..I figured lets just go for it! lol!!!) my Edwin with a Derby Hat first and then masked him off, and before I stampd the little Hiking Background I popped some masking tape over the little campfire than inked it up and stamped it a few times to make a background,

Then without even worrying about it, I got to work with my promarkers! yup! straight onto the MDF plaque!!! the surface is so smooth I just thought hey! lets just go for it and oh my! did it colour up lovely!!

I was so surprised with how nicely it worked and blended. I might varnish it at a later date but to be honest it looks so cute in its naked state I didn't think it needed it!!

Right, time to go! woofers to walk and then shopping to do...blurgh on the shopping!! but we need wash powder and food so I can't escape it!!!!

Huge hugs for you all

Merry Everything.....

Morning everyone!

I have a little christmas make for you today using the stunning new Merry Everything from Stamping Bella, its sooo cute! who can resist penguins and snowmen?? not me for sure and it was in my basket as soon as they went into the shop! he he he!!!

I also couldn't resist those  DieNamics Stitched Fishtail Frames. They work perfectly with my DieNamics Jumbo stitched Fishtail stax and a bit of adhesive foam to make a wonderful focal point for cards.

We had the best day yesterday. We woke up and decided we would surprise Mo with his first ever trip to the circus. Now doing surprises with Mo isn't actually that easy because of his autism he has to know whats happening before hand but he did sooo well bless him.We didn't tell him where we were going and we got there 40 mins early and parked the car in front of the tent so he could get used to the idea, it took him 5 minutes to realise we were at a circus and even when we got out of the car he didn't know we were going in!! it wasn't until we got right to the ramp of the booking office that he realised!!!! and he was frightened but he sat as good as gold with a big smile and enjoyed every single minute. It was absolutely amazing! if you ever have PlanetCircus in your town, you must go. I cannot recommend it enough.

Here's a little piccy of Mo before the show started! I love his little face.

Thank you for popping in

Don't forget there are two $5 gift vouchers to spend in Mo's shop to be drawn from someones comments so make sure you comment on everyone in the blog hop posts.

I of course had to go for something for my little guy as he started Spy Club at one of his after school clubs this week (...though his teacher told us after their first club that it was not spy club at all and then had just done writing..mmmmm.....sounds like a cover up to me!!) so out came one of his mini notepads ( he has a whole wodge of these because his teachers are helping him to write down his worries throughout the day (...I've told you how awesome they are before right?) so I am sure he won't mind the transformation on this one!!!

Its just too cute!!! I love it!!! Thank you so much for hopping in! pop on over to Vili and see what gorgeousness she's been cooking up (..I am so pleased I am not after Vili on the hop because you would be dissappointed after being there! he he he!!)
