Here I Come! -Tiddly Inks School Day Fun Challenge!


Hello crafty friends! 
Happy Tuesday...we made it through Monday yay! LOL

School starts for my boys here in about 2 more weeks!! They are excited and so are me and daddy! We've been trying to get them back on a routine sleep schedule, they of course are not liking it one bit. They act like it's complete torture that they have to go to bed at 8pm, lol. 

~~~~~~~~~~♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥~~~~~~~~~~

Speaking of back to school...we have a brand new challenge for you at Tiddly Inks!! Our new challenge is "School Day Fun"! Should be easy right and very fun too?!!


This is my favorite type of card to create....LOVE when I get to add loads of flowers and lots of layers, oh and huge bows too! LOL

And it's been sooo long since I've done a purple card....I LOVE purple!


For my card today, I used a "Belinda". She is such a super cutie! Doesn't it look like she is off to boarding school?


Some more closeups. I made the little glass pebble with paper scraps from the DP used on the card.


And the inside...

  11. Hi Tracey !! Thanks so much for the sweet comment on my tiddly card this morning!! I colored up this sweetheart, too --- in blues, yellows, & reds to look like Madeline. When I was teaching school, I read her books to my students... I'm sad to say that I'll have to post her when I get home from vacation -- as I didn't finish the card before I left...


    Your card w/ Belinda is super gorgeous!!
    Love the colors your chose & the fabby bow !!
    :)) :))
    Have a great day!!

  12. Simply stunning! This is such a well balanced design! Your embellishments are grouped perfectly and the eye does not have to wander to get the full impact of this intricate design! I love the color..lavender/purple is one of my favorites and this is just fabulous presentation. You must tell me where you found those corner flourishes, they are gorgeous! Okay, I am done babbling. Thanks for dropping this off by our house at 613 Avenue Create!
