OMG!!! Frizzy Jynx!!!!!!

Hello again peeps!!!
i did try to keep to the one post today but then....well...I just had to go shopping over in Krista's Saturated Canary etsy shop too........

Now I am completely blaming my purchase on my Tiddly Inks teamie Emma who showed me the linky to the shop on facebook!!!!!! Bad Emma!!!
So yesterday,I went for a pootle in the shop and saw Frizzy Jynx who totally and utterly reminds me of my cheeky little niece, Boo, who wouldn't give me a kiss on saturday when I saw her and stuck her tongue out instead!!!  
Total trauma when I poped to the shop to get her today and couldn't see her.....argghhhhh. One email to Krista later and she was back in the shop, (Thank you soooo much Krista) waiting for me to buy her!!! SOLD- one Jynx to Lou!!! but seriously OMG, who could resist her??? she's fab!! Krista designs for sugar nellie but Saturated Canary is her own digi shop and its fabulous so you definitely neeeeeeeeed to go!!!

After pressing the send and recieve button a zillion times in the space of 5 mins ('cos ya'll know that makes the email come quicker right.....?? lol!!!) There she was.......(with a friend Neavah to keep her company of course.......) ready for some printer treatment!!!
A few chrimbly coloured promarkers later and she was done...oh and bling too, a girl needs bling......

The gorgeius dp's are nice and patchwork patterend so this little cute card will fit in perfectly with the passion for promarkers challenge blogs patchwork theme this week. The promarkers I used for Frizzy jynx are...
blush,soft peach,peach, burgundy,berry and crimson,olive green and pear green, tan caramel,cocoa and burnt sienna and pastel biege to shade around her, phew !! big listy!! and for the I love promarkers challenge blog there is a fab metal christmas tree charm too!!!

And so she is my christmas card to my cheeky niece. We love christmas in our family so I decided to go with a happy winter sentiment then I can give it to Boo super early!!!!!

This piccy below is to show off the sparkle in her hair.......
I had fun with my yummy distrezz it all with this one and ripped a bit of the paper to add a lurvely christmas tree charm.

I promise I am going to bed now so I won't post anymore tonight!! lol!!!!

Huge hugs Lou xxxxxx

Book Boxy thing!!!!!!

Papers and images from Happy Happy Birthday
 papercraft factory from Funky Hand.

Hello peeps!!
I saw a box just like this on my lovely friend Chris's blog a week ago and just had to have a try at it so I googled and found a tutorial HERE and have had a really fun time making it. When I first saw the tutorial I thought it looked a bit technical for me but once I had (....made 3 really big messes, romfl!!!....) had a little go at it....:) I got the hang of it and have made 2!!!!
So this one is todays and I am entering it in a couple of challenges. The challenges are...

Simon says stamp multifold card challenge...this was a lot of folding!!!!! 

So here's a side view of boxy......
And here is the inside.........
Oh I had so much fun making this!!!
I used the Birthday Boy colourway from the happy Happy Birthday papercraft factory, (which is due out in 5 more sleeps!!! wohooo!!) and a few of the awesome digi stamps and hobo font from the workspace. Then with the help of a bit of foam I popped out my beer mug inside the box.

There is also a bit of martha embossed zig zag punch with some hand stitching in.

So I think thats me for today unless I feel a bit makey tonight!!!! Off to make oneself a quick cuppa before I go and fetch Mo from school, he went pootling in the gates all happy again today so thats 3 days with no tears!! woohoooo, go Mo!!!!

Huge hugs and thank you for peeking!!!
