Odd Dog LOTV Cup of Tea Dad's Birthday

Good Morning,

A birthday card for my Dad today, LOTV Odd Dog - Cup of Tea is the Stamp, he's so cute! Quite a simple wee guy to colour up.  The papers are LOTV - which unfortunately are no longer available - I have so many LOTV Pads, I'm gutted they aren't printing them anymore.

The kraft card was cut on my ebosser using a Spellbinders Die.  Gems are from stash, ribbon is papermania.

Odd Dog is coloured with copics.  All my blue coloured card is also papermania.

Aint he a cutey?

Well I hope you guys like! Lyns xx

WOYWW - What's on your Work Desk Wednesday? 345

Hey Guys, 

I've been absent for a bit from WOYWW (want to know more, check Julia's amazing blog HERE). I took a break through December as I was becoming a bit overwhelmed, I still tinkered with crafting but just thought I'd settle down from my blog to allow me some time to breath.  

My desk shot shows me just finishing up some colour of an image and the beginning of ANOTHER box card! I promise to make something regular soon. I'm also watching Cinderella on my computer, I don't really watch, more just have it on in the background, it's one of my favourite movies - which you can possibly tell from my wall calendar.  

A slightly different angle... 

At this point in the process I'm deciding what papers go with what and how I will put everything together.  

I also had to share with you my fabulous new chair - it was a Christmas gift from my Mum and Step Dad.  I desperately needed a work chair, this was a real bargain from Amazon.  To glitz it up a bit I added the diamante buttons to the back - using... false Nail Glue!  I swear that stuff is better than super glue.

I hope all you WOYWW'ers are good! I'm going to hop round your blogs for a nosy... #deskcreep

Thanks for stopping by! Lyns xx

New Year - New Card :o) Scruffy Little Cat with a Light Show!

Happy New Year! 

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year - if you were celebrating. I chose to be a bit more chilled in December as work was busy, socially I was busy loads so I did something unusual and didn't really make any Christmas Cards - I don't regret it, it was good for me to relax. 

Today's card is one I have made for my beaut of a friend who turns the ripe old age of 20 tomorrow - wee baby! I am her 'old' friend ha ha!  I made the box card - they are actually really easy to make. The stamp is a scruffy little cat and coloured with copics, stars are die cut stuck to wires.  The papers are actually Christmas papers but I thought they were so cute.  The diamates was a swirl set thing... typically I can't remember where any of the stuff is from! 

Now the light - jazzy eh?  It was in a balloon that I got in Disney World years ago and I brought the balloon home once it went flat - cos I'm like that ok!  I took the light out and thought - ah it would be perfect in this card.  It changes different colours and goes like a bit of a strobe at points but it's a funky wee novelty.  

And here are some photos of the box without the light on.  Also how cute is my blankie - that was a bargain from Primark and I am a sucker for a blankie! 

Hope you guys like this one, more coming up throughout January.  Take Care, Lyns xx
