A little bit of LOTV for a saturday!!

Stamps- Little Ballerina from LOTV.
Big Present from LOTV.
Morning peeps!!!

Its a stunning sunny saturday morning here and that sun is soooo welcome after a few days of rain, wind and thunder! 

This little make is for a Grandad for Fathers day, so cute!!! I stamped the little girl first and then masked her with my frisket film. I love frisket film. I stamp my stamp on it first with staz on and then cut it out and it is good for like a zillion times of using it. I have had my roll of frisket for 4 years now and it still has oodles left on it!!
So I stamped my little girl up, covered her in the frisket film and then stamped the little boy so he was just behind her a little. Then I took the frisket film off and coloured up my pair of cuties!!!
I know you can do it just as easily with paper and a bit of removable tape but I love my frisket bacuse its clear and I can see exactly what I am doing....because I am that dopey I would get it wrong somehow!!!!!

I stamped one of the gorgeous postmarks out and cut around the edge then popped it onto a little circle of Kraft card to give it an edge, adding one of the little hearts from my border to the centre of it.

Man cards are sooo hard, I so wanted to add a few flowers to this one!! he he he!!!

These 2 are off to sit in the LOTV ideas to inspire monthly challenge which is use a sentiment. I love those Greetings Postmakrs, my friend Lou made me get them...she did....she forced me......well thats what I told Scott anyway :) !!!!!

We are having a vegging out kinda day today. Mo was poorly last night and I was up with the little guy twice in the night, he had a bad tummy ache and cold sweats, so weird, he was freezing but dripping with sweat :( poor guy. I snuggled him up and he settled back off to sleep around 2:30am, then was up again at 4:30am so we have been pootling around ever since, calpol, snuggles and coffee...lots of coffee... will be the order of the day I think ( though currently as I type he and daddy are singing along to the phineas and ferb title sequence....!!!)

Have an awesome day everyone
huge hugs Lou xxxx

    Hugs, Becky x

  2. Oh Sweetie I do hope that little Mo will feel better soon...

  7. Love the card just right for a granddad. Hope Mo is feeling better, children do tend to bounce back quickly it's the adults who suffer more from the lack of sleep.

  11. Sorry to hear Mo was poorly again. Hope he's well on the mend now! Snuggles in front of Phineas and Ferb sound the bomb to me! Georgie and Zac are both into those guys big time right now, so I know that title sequence really well! Love your card hunny, the masking is so incredibly clever. I really have to be more adventurous and try some of these clever techniques. Still a bit novice for this or maybe nervous, not sure which?!! LOL. Big hugs, Wends xxx

  12. Lovely card! What die did you use for the heart strip?


One little comment goes a long way!! your special words always make my day :)
