Animal Antics ...

Happy Sunday all you lovely crafters, hope you are all enjoying the bank holiday weekend, im really looking forward to having a few days chilling out, sorry i haven't been around for a litlle while but my husband sadly had a mild heart attack this week and came as a massive shock to us as he is fit and well normally and is only 34, he is now out of hospital and back at home and on the mend, thank goodness, just need to get him to take a step back and slow down a bit ...

                                          Any way.. enough of me babbling on, lol ..........  
                                       Today is the start of a brand new challenge over at
                                    Totally tilda and friends and the theme is Animal Antics....

       I decided to make a book card as i haven't done one in a while, so made one for a baby boy                                                      using Little Trumpety with bow stamp, its so cute!!!

                                If you would like to have a go at making one of these book cards,
                                                    i found a fab tutorial on Linda's blog HERE  

                         I have used maja design vintage summer basic paper, i just cant get
                 enough of these papers, there gorgeous, i have coloured the image in copics....
                                                             Copic colours i used are .....
                                                                elephant .... C1, C3, C5
                                                               Bow ...  BG10, BG13, BG15
             I cut my image out with spellbinders circles and layered it on to a scalloped circle,
                        i glued 6mm white pearls down the spine of the book, luv how it looks ...

                           All the flowers are from wild orchid Crafts, other than the beaded
                                            sprays which are from Live and Love Crafts .....

              Here is a pic of the inside, i made 2 tags to go into the pocket using a magnolia 
                           doohickey die, the wooden heart is from Live and Love Crafts,
                                                   and the lace is from my stash...........

                    I also made a matching box, using the same flowers and embellishments,
                                    and added a baby word die cut from Mariannne Designs...

                                                  Our generous sponsor for this challenge is from
