La La Land Crafts Handyman Luka

When I got ill I lost alot of my energy levels and they have never returned to where they were. I still do alot of jobs around the house but have to write days off afterwards. Before I got ill I would lay flooring, paint, lay patios I would try anything and learnt most things off of YouTube. I laid a shed base last week and then was totally wiped out of energy for 3 days (I will never learn)

Anyway I digress, my brother goes mad at me now and offers to do things for me but he has a young family and if my illness taught me one thing it is that time is precious. He should not be spending it doing my home improvements.

I had a new banister to fit in the garage and when we went on holiday in the summer when we came home he had been and done it all for me. I love my hubbie greatly but DIY brings him out in a cold sweat!

So this is the image the kids picked for Uncle Mart's birthday card

There is a video on my YouTube Channel which shows the colour blends in detail Mrs H's Crafty Corner

La La Land Crafts Marci Comfy Sweater

I just had to have this digital stamp, by La La Land Crafts. I love comfy sweaters and think Marci looks great in hers.
I have paired this with a tree and pumpkin from the Polkadoodles Autumn/Fall Bundle.


I actually put the sentiment banner on to cover up a blunder. So this has not turned out exactly how I hoped.

I had tried to put a bush where the banner is but it just did not look right at all, it looked more like where our daft mutt cocks his leg on my lamppost 

So I attempted to colour it back in as grass and just ended up with too much shadow so did the best I could with the sentiment banner.

I printed my scene and coloured it using alcohol markers, pencilling in a background first.

The sentiment was heat embossed onto Kraft card and cut with a torn rectangle die.

The picture was cut with a stitched rectangle nesting die

And dotted with Nuvo drops. It was the adhered onto a pre cut card base
