I had an awesome day pootling out there today and when I came out of my little craft room my awesome new neighbours even more awesome mum was cutting down the tree's that have been blocking the light out of our garden for the last 7 years, I cannot tell you how much brighter it looks already.It really made my day. It was freeeeezing out there so I made her a lovely brew and had a little chat over the fence ( ...lou tottering on tippy toes on little mo's stool!!) but it was so nice to have a quick cuppa and chat outside.

Right off to bed for me! I've had 2 co-codamol and I am kinda floating on air a bit!!! romfl!!

Tiddly Inks challenge 102- Wings!!!

Morning peeps!!

Its that Tiddly Time of week again where the Tiddly Inkers get their inky thang on over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog and roll out another super fun challenge for you all!! and this week our theme is so much fun! this week its....


Your creation can use any Tiddly Inks image you'd like but just make sure there are wings on your creation.  You can use a Tiddly image with wings, embellishments with wings, or even ribbons with wings!  There are so many adorable images at Tiddly Inks that fit the bill too!  We have fairies and buggsbutterflies and birds galore!  Remember to link up before midnight on February 5th with your NEW creation using a Tiddly Inks image.  

ooooooh I cannot tell you how much fun I had making my card for this one!!! so first some linkies of which tiddly items I used...piccies are linked to the shoppe!!!! :)

I hadn't made a shaker card in soooo long I just had to get out one of my plastic domes and have a bit of fun.

I cut an aperture out to pop my dome through. I used a scalloped circle nestie to do that so it kinda looked like a flower around the edge of the dome. Then I popped a few flowers and beads in the dome and got to work on my stamp.

Ooooooooh I know I keep saying oooooooooh but christy's Tiddly Inks clear stamps are just the bomb! first they come in such a cute little pack with a sentiment and some coordinating bits that are super cute ( I so love the little bees and their flight path in this one!!!)

I coloured her up with my promarkers...
browns- burnt sienna, cocoa and sandstone
yellows- gold,mustard and canary
skin-coral, sunkissed pink and blush
and inked the edges with some tee dye distress ink ( my fav colour at the min and everything is edged with it!! lol!!)

Then I nestied her up and adhered her to the circle I cut to back my dome and then adhered that to the dome.

I cut a little tag using my cuttlebug tags die set and then stamped the 'Happy Bee-day' sentiment onto it and threaded a bit of string through.

I love this card,its sooooo cute!! and totally warming on a freezy day too!!! so thats it from little ole me today!! I am hoping to get out in my craft room today, yesterday was just too cold and I was a bit stressed with the weather and thoughts of driving but today  am ready for action again! fire up those promarkers!!!! (....and the heater for a good hour before I go in there!!! romfl!!!)

Don't forget to pop in on the challenge blog and see what my gorgeous teamies have made and don't forget to join in the fun you will need to use a Tiddly Inks digi or stamp!!

Huge hugs Lou xxxx
