An Update which I forgot about lol.......

Good evening my lovelies thank you to everyone for the get well messages its been an extremely rough day again today so much so I cant possibly have any more drugs now......nothing is working tho. I'm still waiting on results of my CT scan I do know I have kidney stones but they are not sure if its that causing all of the pain or if its something else as well as kidney stones...........its really bloody awful tho.
Anyway I've popped on to give you an update. If you remember about 6-7 weeks ago I put a post on about my yorkies......well this is how my miss Fudge looks today.........

No she is not over-weight there are little babies in there......I've felt them moving they have been so active today lol. Hubby took these pics about an hour ago & she is looking at me as tho to say ''You let that dog, that dirty dirty dog do this to me!!!!!!!!!!''

''yeah & you should of had his tiddler cut off...........'' she then says to my hubster lol.

We have made her a whelping box today as she is due in 7-10 days time. You should see her when she walks bless her.........well TBH she waddles more than walks lol. She loves lying down here as this is normally where Natalie's chair is & Fudge lies behind it we've had a shifty round & put a box here for Fudge ready for the birth & Natty's chair the other side.
P.S. Excuse the Betty's in the cabinet I love Betty Boop figures the bikes are my pride & joys I have the british bike in my other unit on the other side lol. The USA one there wasnt many made so it could be worth something maybe one day lol..........hopefully my grandkids will benefit from it lol.
Anyway I'm signing off now & going to bed I've done quite a bit of blog hopping today but if I havnt got to yours I promise to catch up tomorrow cus I really need to go bed with me hot water bottle & watch a dvd.
I will have my Kenny K card for you in the morn so until then nighty nighty peeps, take care & always keep on smiling.....we always have something worth smiling about & thats always the important thing to remember.

Toodles mmwah xoxoxoxoxo

CES Challenges DT Card..........Saturday night at the movies.............

Good morning everyone how are you all? I want to say sorry I've not been to seen everyone yesterday I was not good at all, it was a rough day but I will make up for it today. My hubby cheered me up bless him & brought a big bouquet of flowers.......they are so beautiful.
Anyway its saturday so you know what that means.........CES Challenge time yayayyyyyy
This week our lovely Carrie set the theme & she chose
''Inspired By A Movie'' 
It can be your all time favourite movie or any other film you long as your card is inspired by it & you MUST tell us the movie to which you are inspired by.
Now my favourite all time movie is ''Coyote Ugly'' but couldnt think of which of my 100's of stamps & digi's to use to depict this film. So I changed my mind & I turned to 2 new stamps I got the other week & masked them together..........& came up with a different movie lol.......

I went for ''CARS''  which is why the car is red........well that & for a challenge lol.

I sliced 2 slits in the paper & threaded my cream seam binding through & then stamped a sentiment onto it.
The flower in the corner is a red 35mm Gardenia which are just gorgeous.

This is Tilda With Pony Tail & I masked Tilda's Summer Car for her to see on. These are from the new Sweet Rainbow Collection.........I couldnt resist this set especially when I saw the know me & cars lol. They were both coloured with Copics....not sure of all colours but will put down the ones I remember as I went for diff skin on Tilda...
Skin - E13 E11 E00 R20 R11......also add a touch of R32 to the centre of her cheek.
Hair - E37 E35 E31 E50
Top - R20 R000 R0000

I have used a 6x6 Scalloped Card blank for my base. The bottom layer of blue DP & the Cloud DP are from Whiff Of Joy pad & the centre 1 with the ribbon going through is Websters Pages. The card blank, DP's, flower & card candy are of course from Crafty Emma's Store.
For the image I placed it on the clouds paper & then attached some dark grey card to the bottom & drew on white lines to depict the car on a road......I'm quite pleased with how it looks.

Well thats it from me but please do pop over to see my teamies cus they really have made absolute corkers they really have..... This was the best I could do as I was feeling ill as well at the time.

I'm off to link up now & then I am doing some hopping, so I will see ya all soonies.

My crochet flower made by my own wee hands & attached a blue rose to the centre. I edged the flower with a touch of white paint.

This little cutie has been coloured with Copics & Prisma's blended with sansadol.

The gorgeous papers are 'Up, Up, & Away' by 1st Editions.......which has only took me a few weeks to finally use lol. The sentiment pearls, gingham ribbon & kraft card are from my stash.

Surf's Up with Strawberry Surf

Good evening my lovelies how are you all? I'm sorry I've MIA this weekend but apart from a little colouring saturday night I've had the entire weekend with the family spending quality time with each other. So I will catch up with you all I did try to do little bits when I could but not a lot. Its also my daughter's birthday today wow 19 years old I still remember the day she was born & doctors telling me I would be lucky if she lived 2 weeks as she really was that ill..............she is now 19.......She may not be able to do anything & is totally reliant on me & her dad but she is loved soooooo much!!! It just goes to show life can take a turn at any moment & we have to make the most of it while we are here.
Right onto my quickie card, now this is a digi image that I coloured in a few months ago to be honest & I've finally gotten her out of my box of coloured images & put her on a card to partake in a few challenges whose themes are much the same.

This is 'Strawberry Surf' digi image by Hannah Lynn which of course is exclusive to Crafts & Me.

Papers are Fancy Pants 'Beach Babe' which I thought were perfect for this image.
Flowers & 6x6 scalloped card are from Crafty Emma's Store as well as the DP's

She is of course coloured with Copics colours I cant remember tho as its that long ago & I didnt write them down.....sorry.

Inside is of course decorated to compliment the front.
