A card and gift holder

Happy Saturday!

My dad is off to sun himself in Benidorm for a week *Ash cloud permitting and so far the flight hasn't been cancelled - so fingers crossed!*, so I have the house to myself and intend to spoil Paddy rotten.

Whenever I'm away Paddy goes off his food, and he's already being quite clingy (haha, sounds like a baby?!) He loves sandwich paste straight from the jar so I have bought a case for him, with the added bonus of keeping him quiet..!

Ok, on a crafty note - there's nothing like a tight deadline to kick start your mojo is there?

My sister asked me to make a card for a friend in work. She asked me at about 10pm... and she needed it for the following morning *insert rolling eyes emoticon*

So straight away I reached for my go-to stamp set when I haven't got time to faff about : Crazy for Cupcakes. Love this set.

I used Tempting Turquoise with some pixie pink for the colour combo, and coloured in the image with some Stampin' Markers.

I used a technique I saw on Shaz's blog to colour the frosting, only I used my markers by transferring some colour onto my stamp-a-ma-jig imaging sheet.

In her workplace, whenever it is somebodies birthday you include a Lucky Dip lottery ticket inside the card! So I made this matching holder for it to go in.

I'm going to attempt to edit this video to within an inch of it's life (or re-shoot... probably the latter!) and hopefully share with you next week.

Have a lovely weekend!

Thanks for stopping by,
take care.
