Just for you, a hug in a mug!!!!

Papers- Paper Blossom.
Digi stamp- A hug in a mug.
Morning everyone!!

Its my turn to post over on the Get Funky and Craft blog this morning sharing one of Funky Hand's one of golden oldies teamed up with one of the newer digi stamps!!!

I absolutely adore the greens and pinks in this downloads and the patterns are some of my favorites too so a little bit of die cutting and punching later and I had all the layers I needed to make a quick card!! by layering up I managed to use a few of my favs from the collection!!! and oooooooooh my new Ebosser cuts dies so gorgeously!! one slip through the Ebosser and my little Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily die popped all its intricate bits out as soon as it popped out the die ( normally I sit pricking the bits out for ages afterwards with my pokey tool!!!)

I inked the edges of each piece with vintage photo distress ink just to make sure each layer didn't melt into the one before. I love inking edges,it just finishes things off!!

I printed out the mug and then paper pieced it a bit so that the sentiment and hearts didn't get lost in the pattern, then I popped it out on some foam. I really do love these mugs, they are just perfect for quick cards.

So we are planning a lazy day today!! I need to pootle away with some crafty bits and Little Mo is a little off colour today so hopefully the magic powders are kicking in and moving things along for him (...which he will probably like because he is a little fed up with not hitting 'sausage' shape on the poo chart!!!)

Thank you for popping in on me!!
huge hugs Lou xxx
