Friends are the Flowers of Life - Tiddly Inks Blog Hop

Hey, everyone!! :)
Today is Friday the 13th!! Not long left before it's the 14th though. Thank goodness I'm not the superstitious type, else I'd have to lock myself in the house and not go anywhere for 24 hours. Even if I did want to do that I had too many things to be getting on with. :) But that aside.. THIS Friday the 13th is a special kinda day.. know why?!

 

Because Tiddly Inks is having a Blog Hop to celebrate Wryn and Friends, a new set of gorgeous little girls by Christy Croll.

This post is going up so late as I've been tryna tidy my craft room while getting up to date and organising some DT work for the rest of the month. Neither of those things has gone well. So I have given up and here I am writing this post instead. It appears I have 'misplaced' an oval nestie and TWO punches. I can understand the die.. but border punches are pretty big things to lose. I think the fairies have been at my stash again. Watch them turn up out of the blue when I'm least expecting it.

Enough of the waffle. I wanna make the deadline! LOL. So a few of you know I have only just recently discovered the whole world of Tiddly Inks.. well I am HOOKED!! Especially on little Wryn and Friends. She is so adorable. This is the second time I have coloured up Wryn - Grow a Little Love. How versatile is she?! Awesome. :)


I have used some papers from My Minds Eye and paper pieced Wryns dress, again, to tie in with the rest of the card. The papers have a little hint of orange, so I've picked up on that using a slice of HUGE orange ric rac ribbon and coloured a few of the potted hearts orange. :) I have doodled and distressed the edges of my card, as usual and added a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps which I have die cut. 


Here is a quick shot of the inside of the card. A sentiment from PTI finishes it off nicely and a few left over scraps add some colour. That's it for me. Off to find some challenges to enter.

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
× Digi Doodle Shop's Best - Embossing
I have embossed the bottom layer of patterned paper
× Pixie Dust Studio - Put Your Heart Into It
× Moving Along with the Times - Spots and/ or Stripes

Thanks for stopping by. I have some DAMN exciting news to share with you all at the end of this month. Posting that in this blog entry should be a big clue! ;) Heehee.

    I love these images too...but I bloody hate digi's! Hey..someone make them in rubber please..just for me:)

    Fab papers and I adore paper piecing, yes it does all tie the card together perfectly.

  2. Oh my, I love all of Wryn's Auburn deliciousness. I have to try her in dark hair next time. Her paper pieced dress is my fave so far, love that DP on her. All the bits and elements are fab, especially adore the rick rack extending outside the card frame.

    Thanks for hopping with us today at Tiddly Inks.
