Tiddly Inks Fab Friday!

Good morning all!

Today is a very special day for me as it's my first Design Team post for Tiddly Inks!
I created a super sweet card using Wryn - Cloud 9 (She's my fave Tiddly Inker!)
Tiddly Inks have an inspirational post once a month, on a Friday, called - Fab Friday!
This Friday, 21st July, is the next one and I'm really chuffed to be featured in it!

I kept this card quite simple and even though the rainbow is brightly coloured, I made Wryn the main focal point by setting Wryn, and her cloud, just over the rainbow and breaking the colours up.



Products used - Basic 6 x 6" white card base
                          Distress Ink in Mermaid Lagoon (blue sky)
                          Unbranded pierced edge cloud die.
                          Smooth white cardstock.
                          Free rainbow stamp from Creative Stamping magazine
                          Spectrum Noir and tonic Nuvo marker pens
                          Blue sequins (from a selection at The Range)


Hope you like her and, if you'd like to have this image in your stash, pop over to the Tiddly Inks store where you can purchase it and download to your pooter straightaway!

Have fun colouring and creating :)

Graduate at last!!!

Hi all!
Just a quick update to let you know why I've been MIA for a while!
I've been really busy creating but, at the same time, preparing for my sons' graduation yesterday (Wednesday 12/07/17).
He is now a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Screen writing, Film, TV and Radio.....Phew!
Here's a little snapshot of his day.


The shenanigans didn't stop there though!
The three of us (my daughter included) went out for dinner followed by several seriously tasty cocktails and after a long day I was tucked up in bed by 10pm :)
Thought I might have a teensy hangover this morning but I must be used to the alcohol after all these years! It's unusual to have drinky-poos on a school night though!

Anyhoo, as you know I'm now a proud member of the Tiddly Inks design team and I'm just about itching to get started!
My first post will appear very soon and I'll certainly be showcasing the lovely images which Christy Croll (owner/designer) creates for us all to purchase.

Hope you have a fab day.
I'm away to pack for a weekend in Bonnie Scotland (my, it's a hard life!) and I'll be back here on monday with my first tiddly project!
