Feeling Tiddly!!!!!

Morning peeps!!!!

I was feeling all Tiddly again this morning so out came the cutest little wild thing you've ever seen from Tiddly Inks. This cute little guy was actually little Mo's buy but once again I am pinching his things!! lol!! and no way could I resist using this little cutie pie!!!
So I was in the mood for a different card again and set off to splitcoast stampers in search of a fab fold!!!! I found this shadowbox card tutorial and set myself on making a card for Scott from Mo!!!!

I coloured my little wild thing up using my promarkers, this little guy has shades of tan, sandstone,vanilla,cocoa and a hint of pastel pink on his little cheeks and ears!!!!! I made him a little cosy pad out of 'jungley' branches and tissue paper in a couple of shades of green and popped him up from the back of the card with some silicone.
The little heart balloon is pastel pink and vintage rose all blended, really sweet!!!
The little hole in the front of the card I made with my nesties and the little 'jungley' branches are courtesy of latest martha very kindly sent over by the lovely enfys!!!!
The little bow on top and knotted 'vines' down the side are garden twine and the sentiment I made on my computer with kristen font.
I think I might have to make a few more shadow box cards, this one is just too cute!!!!! Mo keeps trying to steal him to give to daddy now so I think I am going to have to hide this one until fathers day!!!!
I am entering this cute little guy in Sir Stampalot's June Challenge which is 'Punch It' , you've got to love martha for her punches!!! lol!!!
I buy tonnes of my crafty bits from Sir Stampalot's so was super pleased to see they had started a challenge blog a couple of months ago but this is the first time I have gotten round to entering in their challenges!!! I am also lucky to have Sir Stampalots only an hour away from me so get to pop in every so often for touchy feely shopping!!!!! but they have a superb website if you can't get there in person!!

Right I must go and get changed now and get Mo ready to go and see Carrie get to the church for her wedding, he says he doesn't want to go in the church but wants to make a video of her going in!! he is painfully shy in big groups ( admittedly I am not much better!!) so I am not going to make him go in!!!
Be back later!!
Hugs Lou xxxxxxx


  1. Lou this card is amazing with all the detail work. I've got to check out some of these different card types to make. You've done an outstanding job with this one and Scott's going to love it. Mo has great taste in stamps.

  2. OH Lou this is sooooo super cuteeee, your always fab with different shaped cards. I love the colours and the whole idea with the lion in the jungle. I can see why Mo wants to pinch it for Scott now it's adorable.
