Heyyy Birdie

Morning guys! :) Boyyyy oh BOY have I had a mammoth colouring sesh these past two days. It has been fab, being able to just sit. Me, my pens and my music. I've been at my boyfriends all week and haven't been able to make any cards yet - but I've got the images lined up for when the time comes. ;)

Todayyyy is FABULOUS FRIDAY over at Tiddly Inks!! Have you guys been keeping up with the new releases?! Wowwwwwwzers is it FUN! Check them out over at Christy's Blog NOW!!


Soo.. today I decided to use Wryn and Wren.. only because I LOVE them. This is Too Tweet - an oldie but goodie! ;) The Wryn family has grown so much these past couple months.. and I just love it :)

I've coloured this cutie up using ProMarkers and FlexMarkers to match my papers from My Minds Eye - Howdy Doody collection. I've added some grass and flowers around her feet and a blue glow around her instead of the usual sky background.

I've kept the layout pretty simple, added some delicious orange twill stripe ribbon across the join in the two patterned papers, a big double bow, a little WOC 10mm rose, some mini pom pom trim aaaaaaand a little banner with my sentiment on. :) Simples.

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
- Fab 'n' Funky - Summer Holiday
- Twisted Tuesday Challenges - A Holiday Pick Two
Stickles and Yellow 
- Lexi's Creations - For a Friend

  1. I really believe that all Tiddly Ink stamps are timeless! I love this Wrent, super super cute. Btw, how do you get your bows so perfect?!? Love the ribbon as well, even for orange (my 2nd to least fav color) I really like the effect. :D
