Terrible Two's - Mo Manning

Hello my lovelies how are you on this beautiful day? I hope its as beautiful where you are as it is here today, its gorgeous!! So coming off are all my covers on my sofas in the conservatory to get washed & get them pegged out.
Well I finally just had chance to take a photo of a card I did about a week ago, the image I coloured a few weeks ago. Mo manning had a wee blog hop & the theme at the time was love so I coloured a couple of images up to go with that took a while get them on cards tho lol.
Anyhoo's here is miss 'Tantrum Tasha'
..........she's having a tantrum because she aint wearing pink.......all little girls love pink dont they!!!
As you can tell the weather is beautiful but I still put her in my light tent which is not good in sunlight lol, so sorry about pics, including this wonky one lol.

Of course you can get this fabulous image from the uber talented Mo Manning. I soooooo love her outfit I brought my grandaughter a little tu-tu skirt like that, hers is in pink tho lol.
She was of course coloured with Copics & I made her legs look as tho she had white tights on.

The paper is from Pink Petticoat & this one is called 'Perfect Papers' they are a digital download & right now they are half price, bargain!! I've had mine forever but do neglect them quite a bit :0(
Flowers & 6x6 card blank are from Crafty Emma's Store. Little hearts are from a bloggy friend mmwah. Everything else is from my stash.

Now I didnt make this card for any challenge, it was just for fun but Mo's challenge this week is lace, how perfect is that.......I'm making most of my cards just lately for fun & then looking for challenges after as I dont seem to have time before hand a lot of times.

Anyway I'm off to do some hopping to catch up with you all. Thank you soooooooo much for stopping by & thank you for your lovely comments they really do make my year!!
Welcome also to my new followers hope you like what you see big hugs to you all.
Tatty bye me lovelies xoxoxox

Hi my lovelies

Hi my lovelies how are you all? I just wanted to quickly pop on to explain about why I'm MIA at times & not blogging much & also for the late candy.
First well the candy is some delicious candy I have purchased from the fabulous Krista, yes its fabby Saturated Canary candy mmmmm you gotta love that. I am having a gift certificate drawn up to a certain amount but poor Krista is unwell at the moment & I really dont want her to push herself drawing it up & would much rather her rest & do it when she is feeling better. I know all you lovely people would think the same & I know you dont mind waiting til our Krista is back to her fabulous yummy self. 

Second thing is while I'm trying soooooo hard to do blogging when I can my little grandaughter is not well bless her & the constipation she was suffering with she still keeps suffering with & at the mo the docs need to look at why & make sure she hasn't got a twisted bowel.............fingers crossed that isnt the case. Obviously bless her she is very upset at times so we have Megan & Payton-Lea over here with us a lot or we are over there helping out when we can. We also have her over night at times & at weekends to give them a break. We all know how hard it is being a first time mum & she is barely sleeping so of course this wears out mum & dad &.....well we never had any help when me & Craig had our kids so its nice we can be there for our kids & their kids as well.............yeah I know mine arnt kids, I have 2 teens & an adult but hey they will always be MY babies.
So this is a sorry I'm really not ignoring any of you I promise its just things are bit hectic at mo & Natalie always knows when somethings wrong so she lets us know about it her own screaming way lol.
Will try catch up with you all tonight. I have got cards done from last week but not had chance take piccies so not been able to blog them.......will try get the chance.
Hope you are all ok & those poorly I'm sending mahoosive hugs to you all for you get better soon

The gorgeous papers are Melissa Frances '5th Avenue' these really are soooooo beautiful & I sobbed a wee bit cutting them :0( I edged the paper with vintage photo distress ink & layered onto pink & green card from my stash.

Prima 'Ruby' flower in the corner of the image & I stamped one of Whimsy's new postage stamp in the corner of the card. Muslin fabric is from my stash & I tied a scrap piece into a bow in the bottom corner.

The gorgeous chipboard that the new Whimsy sentiment is on is from Make It Crafty & the sentiments & die cut shapes have all been made to co-ordinate together perfectly. The chipboard shape I painted white.
This gorgeous image is of course from the new Paris Release over at Little Miss Muffet, this is 
'Le Parfum des Roses' & she is one of the new rubber stamps that have been released for all you rubber addicts out there. She was of course coloured with Copics.

The pink pearls, gingham ribbon & heart lace are all from my stash. The paper & flower are from
