And we’re back!


Good morning everyone!  I an so excited to share this post with you today!  Many of you know that I have been working with Tiddly Inks for a number of years now!  So you might have been wondering where all my happy Tiddly posts have gone to.  Well, the team was given a bit of a vacation – a break from challenges and posts so we could rejuvenate.  Well, we’ve done just that and we are back today with our first challenge post of 2017 – LOVE!  

Now, I know there are some of you who are not fans of the “holiday” coming up next week.  No worries, I totally get it!  However, remember that this themes isn;t about said holiday…it’s just about love!  So maybe you are going to use something you love as inspiration (chocolate comes to mind) or maybe a favourite Tiddly Inks digi that you love, of maybe a colour scheme that you love.  Whatever the case might be, this challenge is all about love so let it inspire your creation!

hearts-closeupI decided to use Wryn – Happy Heart for my card today!  Why?  Well, because I love her of course!  I coloured her up with my Copics to match some of my favourite Doodlebug paper (have I ever told you that I have my Copics organized to match my Doodlebug paper?) and then just used my trusty scissors for a bit of fussy cutting.  I topped the card of with a bit of doodling and a pretty bow and I was all set.

Now, I have to admit that this does happen to be a Valentine for one of my little monkeys, but remember that your entry into the challenge does not have to be!  So get out your colouring tools and join us this month (oh, did I mention that we are going to give you longer to participate in the challenges now…visit the blog for more details)!

Thanks for stopping by – I sure LOVE it when you do! 🙂

A Doodlebugging we will go!

If you have ever been here to ScrappyCanuck Studios, you will know that I am a huge fan of Doodlebug Designs Inc. I use their paper and products A LOT!  In fact when I am colouring up images, it is almost exclusively to match Doodlebug product.  The truth is that, while I almost always wear black, I almost always craft in colour – bright colours, happy colours!  And let’s face it – no one does bright, happy colours like Doodlebug!

So this year, I decided to bite the bullet and apply for their design team. It’s always a hard thing for me to do because I have to admit that I am not a huge risk taker.  But I figured that, if nothing else, it would help me share with them how much I appreciate their products and how much fun it adds to my crafty life.  So, I took the risk…


…and it paid off!  So this year, look for even more fun projects with Doodlebug products!  I can’t wait to get started and to work with these talented crafters!

Thanks for stopping by, and feel free to come on over to the Doodlebug blog today!



Wishing you all the best this Christmas…

…and into the New Year!  Merry Christmas and happy holidays, no matter what you are celebrating this season! I am off to celebrate with family (Christmas Eve is the big day for us) and I hope this season finds you healthy, happy and joyful!

Holly Jolly Molly



Good morning crafty friends!  If you are feeling a little under the weather right ow like we all are in my house, I have a little card today that will hopefully bring some smiles!

molly-closeupIt’s challenge time at Tiddly Inks (our last on of the year), and I decided to use one of Christy’s newest images – Holly Molly!  Isn’t she sweet with those little fairy wings? I coloured her up with Copics to match some Doodlebug paper, but besides her hair and the bow there actually want’t too much colouring on this one!  She’s a great one if you still have to make some last minute cards – like me!!

Oh, one last thing!  While there is sad news over on the challenge blog, there are also some details about a cute freebie!  So, while you head over to see all the inspiration and to enter the challenge, don’t forget to check for that too!

Well, I am off to make lunches!  Thanks for stopping by!
