Tiddly Inks DT Call Time!!

It's that time again.....Tiddly Inks DT Call time!!  I'm throwing my hat in the ring!!  I love Tiddly Inks images!  They are fun and whimsical and so awesome to color!


The image I used I found through a Pinterest search.  I think it was a freebie way back in the day (2013).  She's called Wryn-Blooms.  Hope it's still an eligible image to use because I absolutely *love* this sweet girl!  I also found this awesome sketch on Pinterest!


Pinterest is a crafter's best friend!  If you get stuck or in a rut, just do a quick search to get those creative juices flowing again! 

Without further delay, here she is!!  I love how it turned out and the colors just pop!  I used a watercolor technique with my Tombow Art Markers to color her.  The stripped paper is from My Minds Eye Happy Day.  All else is from scraps!  I will also be entering this little lovely into the current challenge.....make it rectangle!




Thanks Tiddly Inks for the opportunity to be apart of an amazing company!  Fingers crossed!

Christmas Card making time!

I've found myself without a design team and see that I haven't posted in a while.  I've been busy making cards here and there......birthday, baby, wedding, teacher cards, thank you cards......and yesterday I made some Christmas cards!

They are Pinterest inspired, and I absolutely love them!



If you are in need of any custom made creations, please do not hesitate to contact me!

Tiddly Inks DT Call!

Tiddly Inks is having a DT call and I am throwing my hat in the ring!!  (Wish me good luck!!)



I had chosen 2 images to work on and see which I liked better in the end.......well it's a good thing I did!  The first one finished wasn't my favorite, but the second one I absolutely LOVE!

For the first card I used a freebie image, Awww Thanks.  I'm getting ready to send a batch of cards in a care package to a group of Coast Guard Servicemen and women who are stationed abroad.  One of them is the father to my daughter's best friend!  This one will go in with some others!


I colored in the image with my Tombow Art markers and used an old sketch from OWH (Operation Write Home), thought it was appropriate!  The paper is from Authentique Genuine collection, the brads are from my stash and the "hi" die is from Little Yellow Bicycle.

But the second "card" is by far my favorite!  My daughter is a dancer! There I've said it, and anyone with a daughter in dance will understand!  Everything has to be sparkly and usually pink!  LOL  As I am also a scrapbooker, this will ultimately go on a layout page!  

This image is also a freebie called, Tiny Dancer


I colored her in with my Tombow Art Markers, then fussy cut her out.  I started with a kraft base, cut it to the correct shape and size and covered it with the pink and white stripe paper which was in the scrap pile.  I popped her up with some pop dots.  The lace punch is Stampin Up as is the "dream" stamp.  The bling (both pink and clear), smaller craft tag, ballet slipper charm and pink seam binding are all from my stash.  Flowers are Prima, polka dot ribbon is AC, stickles in stardust and Distress ink is TH Tea Dye.  I added a little doodling around the edge and tied on the pink seam binding and MM Wedding ribbon.  I love it and so does the tiny dancer in my life!  This one is my entry for the DT Call!  

Here's to nothing!

Leave me some love if you like what you see!

Spring has Sprung!

Happy Spring!!  The next two week challenge at Clear It Out Challenge Blog is Springtime!  The Stash item is to add a flower!

Our sponsors this time are Bugaboo Stamps and Oddball Art.  My image today comes from Bugaboo.  With Mother's Day quickly approaching, I thought these tulips looked like a perfect image for a lovely Mother's Day Card!


Used my Tombow Art Markers to color the image, the paper is from a pad found on the clearance table at Joann's!!  The flowers and brads are from my stash and the stamp is from Frisker's.

Join in on the fun at Clear It Out!!
