Summer flower Tilda....

Doo Hickey Bon Voyage Flowers.
Sentiment- Stempelgede Magic.
Double Gatefold tutorial by Dawn's Stamping Thoughts.

Morning everyone!!

Scott is working, Little Mo is busy playing with his matchbox cars, loo rolls for tunnels, old vinyl cut offs for motoway races and many zooming sounds and winning car celebrations on the landing hall so I thought I would schmoozy into my craft room and make another one of these Double Gatefold cards I am so in love with at the minute!!

I had this scrumptious Inkido Springtime Butterflies in the sky paper that I have been itching to use since last week. I got it in a 12x12 bundle offer box from Dies to Die For. I don't know if they still do them but if they do, they are soooo worth the pennies because there's not one piece I don't love in my box and they are mostly papers I would never normally think to choose!

Anywhos' a bit of cutting, folding,die cutting and general Lou splodge stuff on-ness and the cardbase was done!! then it was on to using some Magnolia Doo Hickey goodness on it.....well...If you are having a Lou indulgent crafty moment you go for your Magnolia stash right?

As it happened, I decided to go for my Doo Hickey Dream Tag and my Mini Summer Flower Tilda. I have an uber thing for the Magnolia min's and luckily Suha at Swedish House Crafts has a wonderful bargain section of mini Magnolia cuteness for you to choose from! you can find them HERE...swooooon!!!

Here's inside....

My amazing friend, Jenny, sent me this Stempelgade Magic sentiment stamp in a HUUUUUUUUUUGE box of love she sent me not long ago and I decided today that it was just perfect for going with fairy cuteness!! and it is such a beautiful stamp too. It says out of stock when I tried to link it up there but hopefully they will get some more. For the very inside of the card I just decided to go with the little stamp and a little die cut border to sit with it.

and of course... a little video to show it's cuteness in action is always nice!!...

Right, I need to scout out ingredients from the depths of my cupboards to provide lunch for the men of the this will be crafting a miracle today as school holidays have come well into effect in our house and I haven't food shopped properly all week!! he he!!! wish me luck!!!

Thank you for popping in, Hugs Lou xx
