Mo's digital pencil too Anything but a card challenge.

  Hello again peeps!!! I am a 2 posts in one day gal today!!!!

When I saw the  Anything but a card challenge over on Mo's digital challenge blog I had to have a go at entering with a little box bag I have been working on today!!!
Little Mo and Boo came home from the play area kinda comatose so I have been having a little make whilst they veg out!!! (Lucky me, think I will go to the play area daily from now on!!!!) 
I found a completely awesome tutorial for this box over on qbeesquest's blog last week.

I had an order for a Dad birthday card that was a bit special and this is what I have come up with. ( said special dad likes golfing!!) Out came my mo's digital pencil Big Guy Golfing, a total must when you know lots of golfy people!!!!

Here's a view from the side.... yup, I know you are thinking where the heck is the Big Guy????!

I even made a cute mini golf ball for the opening part which is hiding a bit of velcro.
 ....and this is how it opens up to reveal my little surprise inside!!! I added a golf ball!!!!

Its a golf ball inside!!! hence needing the velcro fastening for a good strong close when the bag is all tucked up.

There is a fantastic verse about how Dad's were created. It is my all time fav and my dad's are probably fed up of getting it!!! but its so lovely. Here's a linky to the verse (especially for Ali who needed it xxxxxxx)
I made the golf ball holdery bit out of a loo roll and covered it in matching dp to the rest of my box.
I included a tag to write on too for any personal greeting.

I really really enjoyed making this one so Thank you to mo's DT for giving me the push with all their fabulous creations over on the challenge blog, go check them out yourself as they are fab!!

Thank you for popping in on me!! hugs Lou xxxx

New Tiddly inks Vampires- ooohhhhh!!

 Morning peeps!!!

Now, most of you know I love Twilight ( roll on november.....) so when Christy sent out the new Vampire Tiddly Inks Images I literally squeeled and set to work straight away ( ......then had to stop for a couple of hours after Little Mo gave himself a hair cut to get some hair for the 'First lock of hair' pocket in his baby book that was empty.....)

I absolutely love the new images and got to work making a couple of fun cards with them. The first one above uses Vamp me   and the coffin and gravestone from the Vampire extra pack. I just had to make a coffin shape card with the coffin!!!! Now, my boy vampire on this one actually sparkles like Edward from Twilight   ( mmmmmmmmm..Edward....) but could I get it to show in the photo.......No :) !!!

And then onto my second card which uses Forever and some of the word art from the Vampire extra pack. I flipped the word art onto its side and merged it with the image. The ribbon is from my lovely friend Clare's shop, Cloud nine in Horncastle and I love it, gotta go get more!!! and the text paper is just a page from one of my old books that I have beaten up a bit and added black soot distress ink to. The flower is a scrunched up scalloped circle flower made with more book, 8 layers with a gorgeous basic grey brad in, love it.

Now, I couldn't have a Tiddly post without sharing the birthday card I made for a dear friend to give to her OH for his birthday. She is moving and had packed up all of her crafty stuff (omg...I am so feeling the withdrawal for her!! having it all and not being able to make would be absolute torture for me!!)

I merged all the wizards  ( Christy made one with glasses and one without in one download, awesome!!) and wizardette together for this one and I love love love it!!! I made the little wand in the top left out a matchstick and the little snake in the bottom left is cut on my cricut.

 It needed red and blue and harry potter theme so I think I got it all in!!! I even squeezed in a romantic love heart!!! there is glossy accents on Harry's glasses and Hermionie's magical bubbles!!
Well, that's me for today I think!! not sure I can squish any crafting in today, busy me!!!

Thank you so much for popping in on me, your comments really inspire me to keep going and sharing.
Huge hugs Lou xxx
