Wizard Charlie is just right for my pop up gift box !!

Pull the draw open...

and "surprise" up pops Charlie !!

This would sure put a smile on any guy in your life !! The box could be filled with sweets, money or a gift card or even a watch !!

Wizard Chalire measures 4" x 2 1/2" so I made the box  5 1/4" x 3 1/4" x 1". Cut four stars and embossed them and used CSD "Birthday Circles" to go on top adding,  yes you've guessed,  faux stitching !! Charlie has been coloured in using promarkers and  then put onto a piece of acetate ( mine came from an easter egg packaging) and attached to the inside of the box draw. Then pierced a hole and added a piece of tule. Finished off with adding stickles glitter !!

One for the guys !!

Thought I'd share with you this morning a card I've made for my cousin's hubby, its his birthday tomorrow !! I know a lot of you struggle with cards for the guys in your life.....

I've used  stamp set's by Stampendous called "Love Robotz" and "Botz Quotz"

I love making little scenes. My cloud effect is quick to do, but the grass does take a bit longer as you need three or four colour greens and small flicks with your pens, but its worth it  !!

You better grab a cuppa and a seat as there are loads of photo's !!

You will need:
silver tin box 3 3/8"x 3 3/8"

This sweetie is from a Happy Hopper set called "Special Day"

I've embossed my four squares of backing paper with swirls and then machine stitched the edges ( love my wonky stitching, its a new toy ) Made my flowers from dies and punches using the matching paper from a pack called  "Suger and Spice" by Dovecraft. Coloured my cute bunny with promarkers and pan pastels and finished off with a few small pearls !!

Zentangled mushrooms

Sorry guys I forgot to show you what we made when Linsay Mason came to my local craft centre AMOM. It was  a wall hanging and this is mine. 
Very OTT...

We all got one of Lindsay's new Mushroom/ Fungi stamps which we all did our own zentangling in. Then played with paints, distress inks and guilding wax. I've also added some white thick embossing powder. I didn't punch the holes at the top for ribbon as I'm going to make mine into a book cover.

This is Lindsay's inspiration one for us.

Check out Lindsay's blog HERE !!  She always has a tale to tell and so many fab ideas and samples to show you !!
