Christy's Special Day at Tiddly Inks

Morning guys, this post is being partially typed on my boyfriends new iPad and partially on my broken laptop. Ha. I can't wait to see how this turns out! Luckily I have already scheduled the post and added my labels, because I can only see a slither of that on the screen right now! LOL!

Onwards and upwards. Some of you may, some of you may not. It's our very own Christy Croll's birthday in two days time. Just don't tell anyone I told ya. So in celebration of this special event, we're having a whole challenge dedicated to her! :)  


I don't know about where you are, but the weather around north east England has been a bit lovely these past few days. I just wish it would stay like this, instead it's gonna keep heating up and I'm gonna wanna hibernate!! Aside from that, SPRING is definitely in the air, and I wanted to reflect that in my card, see. Bright, zingy, fresh colours. You like?!

I've used the super cute Wryn Birthday Girl - only fitting for the occasion I think you'll agree?! I've added some Cotton Candy Distress Stickles to the pink areas of the image to add a little more interest. I've coloured her up using ProMarkers and cut her out onto a panel which I've doodled around using a Regal Rose marker from SU!

The yummy (but hard to use) papers are from Cosmo Cricket UPcycle collection, and I've teamed them up with some felt from The Button Shack and some delicious aqua lace from The Ribbon Girl, which I've attached to the card using some ickle brads from Doodlebug. Obvs. :)

Head over to the Challenge Blog now and keep your eyes peeled for the awesome creations my other teamies have whipped up for our Boss Lady!! You won't be disappointed!!

Oh, and while I have your attention, don't forget to stop by the Tiddly Inks Blog between 3-7th April for our Frame The Moment 2nd Year Anniversary!! New designs, special guests, freebies and more!! You'd be stoopy not too!!
