Tiddly Inks Tuesday

Welcome to another Tiddly Inks Tuesday.

Boy oh boy the weeks are just flying past aren't they!! Before we know it the year will be gone, and it will be Christmas time.
Maybe I shouldn't get too far ahead of myself and just worry about this week :)

What is this weeks Tiddly Inks challenge you may ask?  
Well your challenge if you choose to accept it, is to create a jumbo tag or use a ticket somewhere on your creation. Too easy!!!

Here is my jumbo tag using You Are On My Mind.
The pink hair was inspired by one of my daughter's La La Loopsy dolls, which we played with a lot while they were on school holidays.  They are funny little dolls, but my girls just adore them.  

I can't wait to see what wonderful creations you come up with this week.  I know all of us Tiddly Inkers love looking at you cards!!  
So be sure to head over to the challenge site for all the details and to see some amazingly inspirational projects from the rest of the team.

Sweet Pea Sunday

Time to share another Sweet Pea Stamps creation.
This card uses the stunning  Rachel Anderson's Amanita Muscaria.
I adore the frame around the image.  It gives it such an elegance.  
The background has been done with distress ink- tattered rose and walnut stain from memory.

The papers are scraps from my Lime Tart November Kit.  It was such a beautiful kit (they always are), that I just had to pull the last of the papers out again.
I hope you have had a wonderful weekend.

I will be back again soon.

Tiddly Hello

Tiddly hello everyone.

Did you enjoy looking at all the samples from the Tiddly Inks and Make It Crafty release?
I was in awe of all the amazing creations from everyone, not to mention the outstanding new digi images.  
Remember there a couple of days left to get 15% off all images in the stores to celebrate this mammoth release. 
So be sure to check them out.

I was feeling a bit angelic last night and decided to colour up this gorgeous Tiddly Inks image called Angel Q.
If you are feeling a bit inky, be sure to head over to the Tiddly Inks challenge blog.
This weeks challenge is to be inspired by nature in a movie. Think about movies with animals and birds, flowers and trees.  

Good luck!!  I can't wait to see what nature movies inspire you.
Until next time.

Reel me in!!

That is this weeks challenge over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.

You have to create a card based on a scary or summer movie!!
Now I am a bit of a sook, and I really don't like scary movies.  But that didn't stop me from being inspired by the scary movie What Lies Beneath for this weeks challenge.

The whole bath scene freaked me out (lol I did say I was a sook).
The card didn't turn out scary at all though :) The image used in this card is Take me Away.

So be sure to pop over to the challenge blog for some inspiration from the Design team and to enter this weeks challenge.

I can't wait to see what scary or summer movies will inspire you!

Don't forget it is only a couple of days until the joint release of new Digi stamps from Tiddly Inks and Make it Crafty.
Be sure to check out all the action here and to see a sneaky peek.

I will be back very soon.

Lime Tart July Kits!!!

Oh la la is all I can say about this months kits over at Lime Tart.

They are all just delicious.
The Full Tart (which is what I am playing with as we speak), is just stunning.  All those bright and vibrant colours have been brightening up these gloomy winter days.
The Half Tart is simply scrumptious with those October Afternoon Five and Dime papers.
Finally the delectable A la Tarte.  Which is just so sassy brimming with Sassafras Lass papers.
There is something there for every appetite.
Pop over to the shop and grab your favourite before they all sell out!!!

I will be back very soon.

Tiddly Hello

Welcome to another Tiddly Tuesday.
For those of  you on the South-east coast of Australia, I hope you have managed to stay warm and out of the wind.
We have some big bay windows at the back of our house, and listening to them rattle last night with the wind made me very uneasy.  Then again everything sounds worse and scarier at night.  I am such a sook lol.

While it is still freezing and windy today, it is a good opportunity to catch up on crafty projects.  
This is a little Tiddly Inks creation I have made.
This sweet little image is called Catch my Heart.
Those cute flowers in the background are also a Tiddly Inks digi that I have printed directly onto cardstock.  It is the Flower Garden digital stamp and it also comes with some digital papers as well.  

There are so many exciting things going on over at Tiddly Inks at the moment.
Challenges resumed this week.  This weeks challenge is ATTITUDE.  Think skulls and bad to the bone.  If you want to participate head over to the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog to find out more.

Also some very exciting news!
  Later this month (July 14 to be exact) Tiddly Inks and Make it Crafty team up for a mammoth Victorian and Steampunk release.

Both teams have been working behind the scenes playing with these gorgeous new images, and all I can say is you won't want to miss it!!!
Head over to this site to find out more and get excited!!!

Thank you so much for joining me today.
I will be back again very soon.
