Tuesday Challenge Time with Tiddly Inks


Good morning everyone!  It’s Tuesday, and that means it challenge time at Tiddly Inks (well, actually, it’s every second Tuesday ;))!  The theme for this challenge is “Celebrate”, so there are lots of ways you can go with this one – birthdays, new babies, new jobs, graduation… there are so many things to celebrate!

Flower-Girl-1-closeupI decided to work with a stamp called Danni and Danny.  I love this little pair of cuties. I coloured up the image with Copics, and actually decided to keep her dress white (which is always a bit of a risk for me because I tend to overdo the grey colours).  It’s hard to tell from the photos, but I also topped up the edges with Stickles for a bit of sparkle.  I think this would make a super cute wedding card or thank-you card for a little flower girl, but I think this would make a darling baptism, communion or confirmation card too!

So, I hope you will consider joining us!  You have two weeks to do some colouring and then link up over on the challenge blog!  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!


Thanks for stopping by!

It’s almost Easter


It’s almost Easter, and although I know this is supposed to be a time of waiting, I have all sort of Easter inspiration for you this week!

I love crafting for Easter, because the images, papers, embellishments and projects always remind me of all the new things that are just around the corner (or if the weather continues in a similar fashion as it has this year – perhaps around two or three corners).

Bunny-girl-closeupToday, I have a little card to share with you featuring a new digi from Chi Chi Memories called Bunny Girl.  I decided to work with some pastel colours for this card which is always a bit of a challenge for me.  But I loved the warm orange tone in this paper and I thought it would work well with the carrot in the image.  The one thing I did realize is that, if I am going to colour things with more of a pastel tone, I think I need some more Copics! ;)

Have a wonderful Sunday, and I hope you’ll pop by again this week for some more Easter inspiration, including a couple of projects I have planned with the girls! ;)



Animal House


It’s challenge time at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps, and I get to share a bit of inspiration with you today!


This week our hostess is Krafty Guest, Marilyn and her challenge is ANIMAL HOUSE! So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp that features an animal of some sort! Have some krafty fun and join us this week!

I decided to use one of my favourite newer stamps out this spring from the Feline Great set.  If you haven’t seen this set yet, it’s worth a trip over to the store!  There are also a bunch of other totally fun new stamps that would work great for this challenge including Cheryl cuties in the Down on the Farm 2 set and my favourite – the sloths in Wanna Hang set.  Of, and if you don’t have any KKS stamps with animals, what about colouring one with animal print clothing, or even using paper or embellishments with an animal theme?!  Get “kreative” – we know you can!

Oh, and the best news of the day is that there is a a great SPRING HAS SPRUNG SALE on this weekend with 25-50 percent off almost 200 of our fave stamp sets! AND every order will receive a mini stamp of our choice!! So go do some shopping!

Thanks for stopping by!



Imagine the Possibilities

I am really excited to share this little card with you today!  Even if you don’t have little girls at home, I have a feeling this one will make you smile!


This little cutie is names Danni – Dress Up, and she is one of the newer releases at Tiddly Inks stamps.  I coloured her up using Copic markers to match some cute leftover pieces I had of Doodlebug paper pads.  I love this image because I think it would work for so many things – a birthday for a little gal, a graduation card or even on a layout!  In fact, I think I need to print her out again this weekend for another project or two!Dress-up-closeup

Oh, and in case you missed it, we are currently in our “Celebrate Spring” challenge over at Tiddly Inks and we would love to see what you create.  Christy also released 3 new amazing flower-themed digis – perfect for the challenge and upcoming Mother’s day! Pop on over to the blog and see what is going on at TI!

Have an awesome weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!
