LOTV's anything goes challenge..

Image- LOTV Pride and Joy.
LOTV circle sentiment

Hello Peeps!!

Well, I have had a totally awesome morning with my BF at the Stamp magic show in Doncaster, ( I am pleased to report it was totally fab and I handed over 12 stamps worth of pennies to Laila at the LOTV stall!!!!!!)
I got some more fabby card...for stamping the new LOTV haul on.....and some cards and envelopes and card bags.

And now I am back in bloggy land with my trusty cup of tea next to me to post my entry for the LOTV challenge blogs Anything Goes challenge. Its their 100th challenge already!! wow, where did that time go?!!

I inked up my cute little Pride and Joy teddy, he is such an all round fabby one for the boys, which is great as I always find man cards tricky!!! if you look closely you can just about see the glossy accents on his goggles and the water.
I used my sentiment cirlce stamp, also form LOTV (....of course!!!) and wrote June (in my awful handwriting!) and circled the birthday date of this little cuties recipient on it to.

Oh and incase Fi is peeking at this post, both are stamped with Memento rich cocoa which gives the image a much softer and warmer feel before you splodge your colour on!!

The papers and lace are from my stash and the little teeny brad looking thingies are faux brads made using my hole punch. I love them and if you haven't made them yourself already, here is a little video for you I made a while ago...( now I am not saying its very good at all but it is a really neat way to make teeny faux brads out of any little scraps of paper you have lying left on your craft desk when you want it all to co-ordinate wsith your card!!!)

I am also going to pop this is for the secret crafters challenge blogs Male card challenge.

Hugs Lou xx
