Morning Peeps!!!!
yey!! its that Tiddlying time of week agaon!! wohoooo Tiddly Tuesday!!! 
and  over to the Tiddly Inks challenge blog we have a new challenge for you this week and its an awesome one! the tiddly inkers want to see ...

Fathers Day...

so anything manly really to celebrate those awesome men out there.

I chose Ricky and a good old stair step card. I love this style of card and its perfect for men because you get a yummy effect without flowers!!! he he he he!!! I just added a bit of raffia, a little fishy charm and some loopy punched borders.

I made the sentiment on my pooter. Here's a little bit of a side view of the card.
Ricky is coloured up with promarkers and a touch of stardust sakura pen on his catch of the day!! I think he is just perfect for a fathers day card and he is soooooo cute. Mo was super happy when he these new ones as his Grandad gave him an old fishing rod a few weeks ago...However Mo decided that one big one was a bit silly and promptly took it apart to make 3 fishing rods.....amazing what a ball of string can do!!!!! here. He keeps them lined up on the wall incase "the weather is good for fishing"......which generally means when some leaves...sorry Fish...have plomped into his paddling pool and "need to be caught"....

I am popping Ricky in a couple of challenges too, they are....

Love to Create: Father's Day or a Special Guy in your Life
Here Come the Boys: Anything Goes

Last night Scott and I sat and watched the Royal Jubilee Concert and thoroughly enjoyed it. I found it so emotional and what I love even more is that Mo is already singing happily away to the commonwealth song by Gary Barlow and Army Wives 'Sing'. He knows how to find it on youtube and loves it!! I really rather love it too....nothing to do with Gary Barlow of course.....:)

Today we are off out to Belton House in Grantham so Mo can check out the new indoor play area they have made. He loves it at Belton House but the indoor play area only opened last week and he is rather keen to "give it a go"!!!!

So before I pootle off to make picnic lunch, don't forget to pop over to the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and check out my awesome Tiddly Inking Pals creations and then grab a manly Tiddly image and join in. You must use a Tiddly Inks image to be in with the chance to win!!
