Tiddly Inks challenge 22- Sketch challenge!!

Hello peeps!!
Its that Tiddly time of the week again and this week We have a fabulous sketch for you from the lovely Betty Boo.
Isn't it cool?!!!
I would also like to send some cyber hugs and cyber chicken soup to Betty as she is a little under the weather at the moment. Huge hugs Betty xxxxx

Please use her great sketch to create a card using one of Christy's fabulous Tiddly Inks images. As always the DT have made an amazing bunch of cards to inspire you so make sure you go and check them out before you start!!

I really hope you get a chance to join in. Christy is in the middle of creating a pool of potential DT members for the Tiddly Inkers. You can read more about that here. So if you fancy getting Tiddly a little more often now would be a great time to start!!!!! lol !!!
You have until next Monday at 10 PM CST to link your card on the challenge blog.
So, here's me for this week!!!!!!! I am so excited about this card because ........

I made it for Mo!!! (using the new stamp especially made for him by Christy!!!)
So, Mo was doing his Tiddly Tuesday shopping a couple of weeks ago and said
""I need a school boy tiddly, has Christy got one in her pencil?"
Awwww, too cute!!! I told Christy what Mo had said, ( he is just too cute not to share with people!!) and last week an email arrived for Mo. Well, let me tell you, he was soooo excited. I let him open the piccy ( he is rather computer savvy like Daddy!) and he actually squeals!!! lol!!!
He said " oh mummy, look its me!!!!
Awwww some more!!!
So I set to work pretty much right away using Betty's fab sketch. I decided to be a little different and cut out the little squares in the sketch for windows, resizing the blackboards to fit in the windows, cute!! and added a couple of little schooly dingbats to the boards. I coloured my Mo up in Mo colours!!!!

This creation used.....

Schoolboy Mo digi from Tiddly Inks

Blackboard paper from Tiddly Inks.

Promarkers- Hair-sandstone, buttercup. Skin- vanilla, pastel pink. Jeans- denim blue, pastel blue. Bag- berry red. Shirt-pastel beige. T-shirt-pastel green. Smiley face on the T-shirt- Gold. Books- a bit of all the above!!!

Tombats 1 dingbats font from Dafont.

Computer made sentiment using Kirsten ITC font.

Antique linen distress ink.

Bit of doodling around the edges of Mo and the card base.

Mo is absolutely loving school so far which is fantastic as he wasn't at all sure last year! He is missing his best little buddy but they have discovered skype and had a couple of chats on there so that eases things a little for him. He has already told me he is taking this card for his teacher when it gets to half term break.

I would love to see some peeps using the gorgeous little Mo on their Tiddly challenge cards this week!!! How exciting!!

Ok time for me to get ready for work!! thank you for popping in on me!!!

Hugs Lou xxxx
