Lazy Boy & A Bit Of A Toot-ette!!!!



Hi peeps and hope that  you are all good!!

Over at the Lili Of The Valley Thursday Challenge today it’s all about

One For The Boys

There are loads of fab Lili Of The Valley designs with the cutest boys on if you want to have a go ( I think that they are just about the best around), plus  there is a £10 prize to spend in the shop up for grabs and lots of DT inspiration so if  get a sec, nip over and check it all out.

I think that Mr Mojo has decided to stay up in Centre Parcs and as is always the case when I haven’t been doing my creative thing for a few days, I found it hard to get going again.

But we got there and this ….

… is what I did.

This could not have been simpler and I just used a fabulous die cut (so no colouring), a very simple layout ….


… and some fab papers :)

These are both Pink Petticoat – gingham and stripes in mocha and putty colours. I think they match the image colours really well.

The sentiment letters are also Pink Petticoat and they are Dolly Mixture Alphas which I over-printed onto a sheet of solid mocha.

Easy peasy!!!

The ribbon and buttons were from the old piggy stash!!!!

Did you notice my nice new watermark peeps? I am really bad at making up these blog signatures and I’ve admired them all over the land of blog but never managed to make one I liked, which is why there is always just a load of typing over my cards.

Then I found this lady -

Blog Banner - for Sidebar

and her name is Lynne. She makes them and you can bag one for yourself right here :)

I think it looks much nicer than my old typing!!!

Now for a bit of a toot-ette (a mini toot lol!!).

I don't usually do this but I’ve had a few e-mails from lovely peeps saying that they saw my mug shot on the front of CM&P (hope they weren’t sick lol !!) which I do stuff for and it seemed right to put it on here today because the 2 images I used are of course Lili Of The Valley 


The papers I used are of course the fabulous Pink Petticoat cos apart from being gorgeous, they are ohh so trendy :) and speaking of which, I got this from Sharon ….

Thank you for thinking of me chick xxx  It’s so nice to be trendy when you are as old as moi!!!!!

Right I better be off and get some more stuff done. I’ll be back in the morrow with something Tilda-ish and it’s something a bit nautical!!!

Here’s a bit of a sneakie peekie …


See you tomoz and hugs to all xxx
