Lady Minion & A Little Something Special

Hello everyone how is your weekend going? Sorry I havn't been round to you all we had to take my craft cupboard to a lovely retired lady yesterday as she brought it off me. Luckily my hubster & my 2 sons went as it had to go upstairs. Hubsters had to take the doors off in order to get it up the stairs lol. I cleaned & moved around furniture..........was actually in my element tbh.

Anyhoo's I didnt get to craft last night we went bed early & watched Grimm on dvds. However I do have a few cards that I havnt shown on here yet..............plus a little something extra at the end.
Now remember I made my son a Minion card for his birthday....well Megan loved it, loved it so much she said she was a wee bit jealous. 
So for Mother's Day off Payton & Arjay I made her this.............
This is 'Lady Minion' lol..........I had fun making this & the idea I got from the actual film when watching it with Payton.............what she made me watch, under duress might I add ;0)
Anyhoo's there is a Minion who has a tutu when the girls are practicing their dance recital................so Lady Minion was then born........

The eyeleashes I made with thread, hairspray & a heatgun............I love them lol. When I added the brads on her pink overalls I didnt realise one of her straps had moved so thats why they are not level............didnt realise til the glue was dry :0(

The pink hair I made from wool from my stash. The tutu is made with MF 'Tulle Trim' which is called Pouf & you can get it at The Ribbon Girl here. I added 'Scalloped Pearls' at each side. On the pocket I wrote mum & on the inside I wrote 'A Mummy In A Minion'..........she absolutely loved it to bits!!!!

Ok I have a little something special add that I've been meaning to do for about a week or just over now. Take a peekski at the pics below...............
I have had a few messages & emails over the months asking about Arjay, so I thought I would show you how he is doing...............

These were taken at mine last saturday, day before Mothers Day.

Do you notice anything different?? Look closely at Arjay see if you can see it.........or not see it as the case is lol. Well he is now 9 months old & finally after 9 months he doesnt need his oxygen...............YAYYYYYY for the first time in 9 months he has no tubes on his face at all. Also his hips are getting better so he also doesnt need a hip brace anymore. There is a chance they could pop back out as they are not fully 100% but he's doing so much better. His face is all marked & sore from 9 months of tape on his cheeks bless him but its healing beautifully.
The consultant cant believe he actually pulled through as never have they seen a lung function as bad as his before, he was the worst they had seen. He's our miracle Arjay is & he has a gorgeous big sister who loves him so much bless her. We are so proud of this little fella & I thought I would share it with you. His story is how legends begin I think ;0)

Thank you for stopping by & sticking with me to the end of this long post............if you are still here anyway lol. I am a proud Nanna............oops I should say 'Nanny' as Payton calls me that lol.

Take care & enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Big hugs to you all, tatty bye
xxxxxxxxxx

This post actually took me well over an hour to write. Do you want to know the secret to writing posts quicker............ DO NOT watch Fast & Furious..........especially if like me you are totally MAD about cars!!!!!

Aww Vicky, your Grandbabbies are delish! So lovely to see Arjay doing so well and without his O2 tubes. That's a big breakthrough!! Gorgeous photos of them both. Seems only yesterday you were telling us of your amazing delivery on the side of the road! You're one pretty amazing gutsy mama to have been so together and able to be there in such a phenomenal way for your family. I'm still quite frankly in awe of you! Here he is looking gorgeous and healthy nine months later! Love your minion card hun, my kiddos are crazy about those lil' dudes, so I may need to remember your clever card when Zac's birthday rolls around. Those eye lashes are amazing! Love and hugs, Wends x

Great card and I am sure it was a lot of fun to make. The pictures of Arjay are amazing. He looks so well and he is obviously a little fighter. Watch out when he is running around, as I am sure he is going to be, one tough cookie! Biggest of hugs, Carol S.xx

What beautiful family pictures of two happy Grandchildren, you must feel so proud and relieved that Arjay's health has improved.

I don't know which made me happier whilst reading this post - your fabulous lady minion card or the pics of Arjay :-D

A lady minion with a tutu is absolutely inspired and so brilliantly executed. Can you believe I only just got round to watching the 2 Despicable Me films in the last month?! I don't think I have even laughed so much at a film before and they were so touching too.

Talking of touching, how wonderful to hear (and see) that Arjay is doing so well, he really is a little fighter and absolutely adorable as well :-)

Hope you had a lovely weekend,
Big hugs, Kat xx
