Forest Fawn

Good Morning all!
Here is my creation for La Pashe
As seen on Create & Craft TV! lol
I used  Forest Fawn 
Just one of the fantastic range of 

These sheets are available on a CD Rom too
Don't those doors look amazing!
The tag was die cut from Kraft card, then die cut labels which 
were inked around the edges were added.
I then tied it with sisal twine

Here's a side view to let you see the box, also made from Kraft card.
The card was assembled & stuck on top.

Here is the inside of the card!
Isn't it awesome! So easy to make up too!
I somehow always feel a little bit naughty looking 
in on these beautiful little scenes, as if I'm intruding!

Here's the open box, lined with tissue paper, ready
for a little gift to be popped inside!

A view  from the end to let you see a little of the 
pop up mechanism.
Thanks for popping in! I hope you like it!

Enjoy the rest of the sunshine!

Hey Diddle Didddle

Good morning everyone, is it nice & sunny where you are?
Here in Edinburgh, we often get a sea har that comes over & blocks out the sun!
That happened yesterday, but I'm hoping for sunshine today!
Anyhoo I digress! 
It's Thursday & it's time for my card using a Just Inklined  image!

The image I have used is Cat and the Fiddle

Such a fun image for cards of any age & any gender!
I have a few other ideas kicking about in my head!
I printed him out twice, coloured him up with promarkers
then cut out some areas like his tummy & layered them.

The layout I have used is the June sketch at 

Cards Galore

The papers are by Bo Bunny
The sentiment was made on the pc using a free font called
2 Peas Fiddle Sticks then cut using
a spellbinders die. The ribbon/bow, is seam binding.
Here's a look from another angle

Isn't he just such fun!
The colour of the cat was inspired by one of my new fur babies
Here's a photo of him & his sister "Belle"

Cute Huh? 
A final little look at my card.
