Sweet Louis, Fab Friends And a Sneeky Peekie lol xx

This beautiful teddy arrived at my house yesterday and despite sore wrists and loads of stuff to do, I just could not resist inking him up. His name is Louis and he is a new boy from Wild Rose Studios. Check him out here - he is fabulous!!

I thought I'd use him to do a couple of challenges. I used the lovely sketch from Sketch Saturday and combined it with this weeks Colour Create challenge which this week is using the gorgeous colour combi of lilac and blue.
I coloured Louis with PMs - not the aqua ones as I am still on a learning curve with them - and I sprinkled some Glamour Dust on so that he is all twinkly :))xx The papers are PP and Mad About Cards

I got the buttons at that sale I helped with a while ago, so there is a good chance that they are from QVC but I am not 100% sure

I am 100% sure that this spotty grosgrain ribbon is from Poppicrafts - isn't it lovely!!!

The sentiment is from PP - Tiny Tags - and the brad is a 'bottom of the box' jobby lol xxx

I tell you what, I feel so blessed to have met some wonderful peeps while doing the blog thing. Look what I got from 2 of them.

Kath made this for me - this photo does not do the colour justice. It really is the most gorgeous shade of blue and there are oodles of Penny Black images inside, all waiting for me and me PMs

Now I have to confess that I 'lifted' this pic from Kath's blog!!! She made me one of these beauts and they are filled with mini eggs. Buit rather stupidly (not to mention greedily) ate them before I took the pic and then I couldn't tie the bow as nicely as Kath did - so I nicked the pic to show you!!!! Hope that's ok Mrs K :)xx

And then yesterday, there was a knock at the door and the postie handed me this big bag which was quite heavy. Well I ripped it apart so goddam fast, and look what was inside .....

Is this not the cutest lil piggy???

She came all the way from bonny Scotland and was sent to me by the sweetness that is Dawn. She saw it in a shop and bought it for me. I am so touched to think she had done this for me. It is a door stop which explains why it was heavy, but there is no way on God's green earth that I am putting her on the floor. She is now living in my craft room and sits on my chair when I am not there - guarding all my stash!!!

And she came with this beautiful card.

So to both of you lovely ladies, I thank you from the bottom of my heart xxxx I am so lucky to have you as friends xxxxx

And finally, a sneakie little peeky '''''

I'll give you a clue .... it is something to do with an owl called
Walter. You can see him here now....

And you can see the rest of this tomorra.

Have the fabbiest of days. It's card club tonight so I better get a shift on and get organised!!

Hugs to all xxxxxx
