Two posts in one day!!! Wow...this is unusual for me but as it is absolutely pouring it down every few minutes there is nothing for me to do except watch a pile of clothes that need ironing or wait until the house is empty to indulge in my new LOTV stamps. You can guess which I went for and the house is not empty at all, cooking still needs to be done but I'm sure I'll get a bit of help with that. How could I not ink this one 'time flies' it, tried to keep it simple as the embossing ones are always 'oohed and aaahed' over in my house. Stamped with a lilac ink pad some dandelion flowers for the background before embossing. Coloured with Promarkers, sentiments are LOTV too, found a bit of scrap lace, Phlox flower die and Marianne Creatables leaves die, bit of glamour dust to finish!

Challenges are several...Stampin for the weekend, Crafty catz, Paper Pretties, CYP, Promarker, I Love Promarkers 2nd, Ladybug Crafts Ink 2nd, Incy Wincy, Cardmania, Allsorts (it's their 5th Birthday...what a great milestone!) Stamp Sensations 3rd, Challenges 4 everybody 3rd, OSAAT, Ribbon Girls, Crafty Little fairies 3rd, Ideas to Inspire 2nd and Crafty Creations. Many thanks for coming over, every comment is appreciated.

Hi, I'm sort of still on my blog break but I thought you might like to see the male version of the pop up box card I made a few weeks ago.

Hi again, wow it's been hot in between showers today and are we ready for our heatwave in the coming days?, no, no. I'll be indoors as extreme heat makes me a bit ill. Anyway I do hope all is well in your part of the globe. My card is a little different, with a slight step in it, embossed in the cuttlebug with swiss dots folder,  LOTV stamp used 'little dot', the sentiment along the bottom comes with it too, coloured with Promarkers, the ticket is the only one from the computer, everything is stamped, scrap of pale blue dotty digi paper, Phlox flower dies used and Marianne Creatables leaves, bit of twine, pearl and glamour dust to finish.

Hi to all, hope life is treating you well. I've had a little spend this morning at LOTV as they're celebrating their 10th birthday with 20% discount offer, many thanks my pennies have been spent now and I look forward to receiving my goodies and having a play with them. So onto my pop-up box which I made easy. I've got 2 members of my family who are teachers now, one was already and one is a NQT (newly qualified teacher) at the tender age of only 22....I'm so overjoyed that I had to make a couple of these to celebrate their good news. Both will go a long way and have the potential to be outstanding teachers! So happy for them!!!

Girly image is a digi from Krista's Saturated Canary called 'Alice', digi paper from CB magazine d/load by Jenny Ellory, backpack is a win from the cupcake inspirations blog some time ago and from Robyns Fetish, colouring with Promarkers and plenty of sentimental stamping going on, lilac ribbon bow and a gem to finish. The other make I'll show in another post.

Welcome to another posting all, hope everyone's in good health and enjoying the lovely weather, though we're still having night frosts so cover up those tender plants. My shaped card is using this cute girly character from Sassy Cheryl stamp sheet 'patience secret', I love these drawings and don't use them enough! Digi paper is from old company (creative cottage), found some scrap ribbon, image coloured with Promarkers.
