It’s my birthday! And am I going to tell you how old I am? Um – no! But I am going to share a fun little card I made using the super cute set from Tiddly Inks called Fun Animals!
If you haven’t seen this little digi set, it is filled with a bunch of cute little animals together with some great accessories. You can layer the accessories on top of the animals like I did for this one (a party hat on top of the rabbit) or just leave each as a stand alone (like I did with the presents)! They really are cute as can be (and a really easy colour as well if you are need of a quick card).
I teamed up this little bunny with some of my favourite Doodelbug paper…and yes, I do have my Copics sorted to match Doodlebug’s colour palette (it makes colouring and matching to paper and accessories a breeze).
So, I am going to go and enjoy some cake – you should too (just in case you need a reason to have cake)!

It’s Friday!! I have been having one of those weeks that seems to drag on and on and on, so I have to admit that I am happy to see the weekend on the horizon! Oh, and it’s the first weekend of the Christmas craft fair season here in Calgary, so I am EXCITED!!! Time to go and be inspired!
Speaking of inspiration, I have a bit of birthday inspiration for you today for Tiddly Inks. This was a really clean and simple card that I created for my little niece who turned one recently. I used the digi called For the Birds because I loved the fact that I could add more little birds onto the end of the image so I would have just the right number of spaces to include her full name! This digi comes with some birds that are joined together, but also little single images as well, so you can customize the grouping of birds to suit your message (this reminds me of those personalized Christmas ornaments…in fact, I think I need to make a version for Christmas). I simply coloured them up with Copics after I printed them, hand lettered the name, and added some Ribbon Resource ribbon. Easy peesie!
Well, besides my first craft fair this weekend, I plan to get a some crafting a new tutorial video done this weekend. If you are in need of some inspiration as well, make sure you pop on over to the Tiddly Inks challenge blog – Fab Fridays are always so fun because the variety of creations is huge! There is something for everyone!

It’s challenge time at the Tiddly Inks blog, and it’s a great one – Anything Goes! I always love these challenges because it is a great excuse to get some cards done for upcoming events, together with participating in a challenge! Two birds with one stone is always good for me!
For this card, I decided to team up the darling Cute as a Cupcake stamp with some paper from Doodlebug. I tend to shy away from using yellow to colour larger areas on a stamp mostly because it scares me (like colouring red)! 😉 But I almost always love how it turns any card into something bright and cheerful, so I gave it a go! It probably helps that I just got some refills too (streaky yellow is not pretty).
Once the image was coloured, I topped off the card with some Chevron ribbon from My Arts (you know it is my favourite), and did a bit of doodling – some stitching and a sentiment. I am not sure if I have mentioned it before, but my Sakura pens are my favourite for doodling (Micron 01).
Okay, there is a ton of inspiration over at the Tiddly Inks challenge blog, as well as all the details on how and where to post. We always love seeing what you come up with, so make sure you join in and let us see your beautiful work!

Good morning crafty friends! It’s Fabulous Friday time over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog, so I thought I would share a bit of inspiration here at SCS as well!
This cute stamp (available in clear as well) is called Let Us Eat Cake, and she is darling. Perfect for young adults and grown ups alike, I think this stamp is pretty and cute without being “cutsie” (not that I think there is anything wrong with cutise as you may have already noticed). I coloured her up with Copics, focusing on matching them to some Doodlebug paper. I love the contrast of her black hair with all the bright colours – I am always a bit nervous to try curly black hair, but I think it was worth it for this one!The ribbons are from May Arts – a grosgrain/satin that is really fun, and my favourite eyelet.
Make sure you stop by the Tiddly Inks blog for more inspiration by the design team, and to check out all the new stamps (digi and clear) if you haven’t had a chance to do so yet!
Well, that’s it for me today! I hope you can find some time this weekend to do something you enjoy – crafting or otherwise! Thanks for stopping by!
