Childhood Toys

Now that evokes wonderful childhood memories of my adorable Li'l Snoopy dog and here he is...

I received the CJ 'Childhood Toys' a while ago and knew once the theme had been chosen who I would be using.
I loved this dog, much to the despair and delight of my poor Mom especially when he accompanied us on a supermarket trip! What makes Snoopy special, well its his feet because when you pull him they go round and make the best (or bestest which I would often say as a little girl) clickety clack sound you've ever heard.
If that wasn't enough, if I walked extremely fast I could make his springy tail wobble and smack his bottom which just added to my total enjoyment of taking Snoopy for a walk.

Now they don't make toys like him anymore, such a shame we've become a horrid plastic nation :( Bring back Snoopy I say.
I've scrapped him using Basic Grey patterned papers which are cute in their own right and added some retro flowers as the owner did not want any journalling in her CJ.

Snoopy Rocked!

A Couple of Cards

Firstly my own Mother's Day card for my Mom and I hope she had a lovely day and saves me some chocolates for the weekend!

Supplies: BG Lemonade patterned paper, Bazzill card base, Prima flowers, Alota sentiment stamps, AC ribbon and a small Stamps Away butterfly stamp.
That was going to be the end of my crafting until two buttons escaped and rolled along the floor when I was rooting in the cupboard so I created this...

Supplies: BG Lemonade patterned paper and stamps, AC ribbon, Rymans white cardstock, AL buttons and the leaves were cut badly *rolleyes again* on the Slice.

I might be selling that waste of space die cutting machine, pfft.

Still No Scrapping!

I just can't get motivated to sit down and do a 12x12 layout. I blame the Playstation 3 and Uncharted 2 online play!
I have managed some crafting though.
This card was made for a very special friend who would still be on a skateboard I think if he didn't have a dodgy knee!

Supplies: Basic Grey Oscure patterned paper, Hambly transparency brick wall in black, The Greeting Farm Skater Ian rubber stamp, BoBunny stamps, MM brads and Star Nestabilities.

I've also finished a CJ I've been playing around with for a few weeks now. The theme was 'Past Times' and after much thought and because of my love of English Literature it could only be the main man himself, William Shakespeare who was extremely talented but bloody hell he was ugly! I can't imagine it would have been much fun being in a woman in the 15th century with the lack of sexy men, hehe.
