Another Unicorn and Another Molly Adventure

Morning Guys 😁

Today's card is another unicorn, so if you aren't feeling the unicorn-vibe that's popular just now - you better look away! 

This little guy is so cute, he's quick to colour up and make into a quick and easy card.  The rainbow papers here are Lawn Fawn Rainbow plaid, they are so pretty. I think I am in love and I seriously wish I had bought more than one pack. I die cut a stitched circle and ran that through my die sire cloud embossing folder. I the layered the die cut stitched clouds at the bottom and topped with a little Card Candi! My dies are from eBay, which is great to get brilliant popular dies at a cut price. 

Now I want to share some photos with you guys of that maddo Molly.  We went to visit my friend Alicia who has been in recovery after a serious road accident.  We have been visiting to get her out and rehabilitating slowly.  Alicia lives on a beautiful farm in the Scottish borders, so Molly loves it of course, but do you know what Molly loves more?  Sheep Fleece, specifically rolling on it! 

What is with this? I mean I've heard of dogs liking to roll in poop, but sheep fleece? 

She is really going for it. As there is sheep poop also on the ground, Molly was disgusting after her antics! 

We encouraged her to take a dip in the river to wash off the eau-de-sheep smell and poop.  

This is Alicia trying to get Molly to sit so she can throw a stick.  Molly's tail is normally wagging too fast for her to sit down when waiting on a stick throw. 

Molly also likes to ensure we have a feel for the water too! 

Thankfully the river did remove her disgusting smells and the muck off her.  Once she was dry her fur was beautifully soft and fluffy.  It was like someone had poured conditioner in the river.  She slept for a long time after this trip! 

I hope you guys liked my card and my latest Molly photos.  Lyns xx 💖

WOYWW 427 - What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?

Happy WOYWW Everyone, 

Welcome to my page - if it's your first time stopping by, please leave a comment to say hello so I can come visit you too!  This week's desk photo is really a Tuesday night photo, but if I took true Wednesday morning photos you'd never see anything. It is also the reason there's a half glass of wine on the coaster :o) 

This week's first desk shot doesn't show a huge amount of happening.  I have been working on my colouring following Kit & Clowder online colouring classes.  I coloured up my first image then decided to make her into a card.   That's also Edward Cullen on the computer there, I like to watch films when I craft, ones I've seen several times are better to have on.  Most of the time I'm not watching what's on the screen just listening as I work.

Looking a bit less organised now, I decided to have a go at making a shaker card.  First attempt and it's turned out ok but I have some definite notes for the next time I try.

I wish I'd opted to take a photo once all the glue was dry you can still see it looking a bit wet in places.  I wanted to give this card quite a distressed feel, it took forever but I think it's worth it.

Here's a little close up of my image and the shaker element.  Ingredients for this card are: Simply B Stamps Digital Stamp - Let's Boogie Betty is looking to move her store to Etsy, so this link may stop working.  The papers are Beach Bliss from LOTV, but no longer available although similar papers at Raspberry Road Designs are available to download.  The cheese cloth, lace and shaker sequins are from The Ribbon Girl.   I used spellbinders dies for my die shapes.  Coming as no surprise, the image is coloured with Copics.  

I hope you have enjoyed peeking at my desk.  Please remember to visit Julia's great blog for all the information you need about WOYWW and don't forget to comment so I can visit your desk too!

LOTV Stamping

Hi Everyone! 

How is everyone doing?  I hope you've all had great weekends.  Mine was a really good one.  The pole studio celebrated it' 3rd Birthday, we had a really good practice session/party for the studio with the regular students.  I also embraced the Festival and went to see the comedian Tom Stade - really good fun all round.  I'm sad it is over now, but I'm going to see another comedian later in the month too, so looking forward to that. 

Today's card is one I made quite a while ago, it's another LOTV coloured with copics. The papers are also LOTV.  I have used my Doohickey Magnolia Die and a butterfly die from Joy Crafts. The ribbons etc. are from my stash.  

I do feel at the moment that all my cards are a little samey in terms of design and style.  If you have any template challenges, please share them with me, I need the inspiration. 

Thanks for visiting, Lyns xx

July 4th - Independence Day - for America Anyway

Heya Everyone, 

How's it going? For me, the weekend went too quickly.  My niece turned 6 on Saturday, 6 - how the feck did that happen?! She was a baby just 2 minutes ago.  She had a little party for her friends, which is adorable and DEAFENING.  Why do kids scream so much? 

Hannah is the small blonde at the back, this is her with her cousins and friend and Molly of course (dog cousin). 

I have to give kudos to my sister making this cake, it is pretty epic. Unfortunately I didn't have any ode to being on a diet.  😝 Kids birthday's are always great, they are so excited and happy.  

On to my card, this is one of Simply B's Stamps, she had a progressive challenge over on her Facebook group. The image is brilliant, I love it! 

I really took the time to practice my colouring on this, now unfortunately the ink has become a bit mottled on her chin but aside from that it's pretty good I'd say.  It is definitely the best I've done with hair. I used the copic combo: E31, E33, E35 and E51.  This combo makes a great blonde, if you use a lighter hand. 

The digi papers are from etsy and I cannot remember what the shop is called.  The card candi, ribbon and lace is all from my stash. 

I hope you like this one guys! 

Thanks for stopping by, Lyns xx
