my craft club makes!!!!

Hello everyone!!!

I have had a lovely day at craft club today. As usual, I didn't have a clue what to take so I took some of my favs including my tiddly inks, some lilyboo bits and some yummy papers!!!! I was hopeful I could do a nice bit of something with them!!!

Denise did us a fabby tutorial this morning to make the flower on my gorjuss girl card, I really enjoyed making that and I borrowed my friend Fi's punch to make myself some teeny ones too. They came out cute but I haven't plonked them on anything yet!!!!! The papers on this one are My Minds Eye, love them!!! and the superb sentiment stamp is one of the Cuddly Buddly round greetings rubber stamp set. I am so chuffed at how it finished off the card with the little faux brads on the scalloped circle. I coloured the heart to match my gorjuss girls dress.

I had time to do some boo-depage and used the cute little sweetie download for this card, the lovely argyle backing paper is from the pocketful of papers download.

I was also very excited as the new funkyhand cd, Colour me happy, came out today and I ordered that as soon as I had put little mo to bed. I can't wait for it to arrive. I also treated myself to the Funky Fella's paper pack. I can't believe I have never noticed it before but the papers in it look awesome.
We have 5 additions to our house today and they are the african snails that we are looking after for one of the children I was a nanny for. I still see them whenever I can and love them dearly so babysitting the snails duty came up last night when I went to work!! They were strapped carefully into the passenger seat of my car with the seatbelt in their tank last night and I popped them in the kitchen.
Well you have never heard so much excitement from my boys this morning!!!!! Little mo was absolutely over the moon with them and Ryan has been watching them all day!!!! I have been getting snail reports every 5 minutes from Ryan!!! he is 10 so a bit older than Mo and when the dad of the little boy whose snails they are said that the boys could have one or two they were so pleased!! Ryan has spent the last couple of hours looking for a tank on ebay!! I just think it is so lovely that the simplest things keep my boys happy!!! I will try and get some piccies of them holding them tomorrow to post. They are still relatively small but I know they get big as my brother had a huge one!!!!!
Right must go and finish my tiddly ink creation I have on the go!!!!
Thank you so much for popping in on me
hugs lou xxxxxx

  3. Lou, both cards are lovely. I love the flower. Did you spray it with water in order to make the petals curl?

    LOL over the joy of boys and snails and of course thinking of the old saying about what little boys are made of. Guess your two are proof in the pudding.
