NEW LOTV vintage boys and cute animals

Hello lovely people,

We have a wonderful treat for you at the end of this week because there are two fantastic sets of new images being released from LOTV on Friday 28th, and I hope you are ready for a whole lot of cuteness!

This time there are 3 cute animal scenes and 4 fab vintage boys and I absolutely adore all of them.

To me, the vintage boys are a real LOTV classic and they are just so good for making masculine cards, so that's what I used for my first project.

One thing I love about these images is the wonderful detail in them and yet they are really easy and fun to colour...just look at this adorable little chap...

I made the little typewriter text strips on my computer and added a sweet little hammer charm, but my favourite detail on this card is the corrugated card because I really like the texture and interest it adds.

This particular bit of card was recycled from some packaging and has a lovely soft colour and texture, so I am sad that I only have a very little of it.

If anyone knows where I can get some corrugated card that looks anything like this (I definitely don't want very rigid corrugation) then do let me know!

Blue and brown is one of my favourite colour combos and this card is gorgeous. So many new things to tempt me, but I had some money for my birthday so I can definitely indulge myself next week at the NEC for my yearly crafty fix :) and who knows these little sweeties might just end up coming home with me.

Oh, you already said it is from packaging..but if you have stiff stuff..put it between your cuttlebug plates and squash it down..works for me.
