It's a magical day with Tiddly Inks!

I'mmm back!
If you missed the SOG release, scroll down one post to see it! :) :)
I couldn't stay away with the reveal from Tiddly Inks today!!
Christy has really 'brought it' with this release.

She explains it so well on her blog.
Oh, where to start??!! I know, I will start in the order in which I colored them :)

Meet Mystria!

Mystria comes with exta's like a Tree, Fog, Moon, and digital paper!
Now when I was arranging the digital elements before printing, I totally forgot about the fog file *facepalm* - really kicking myself because I colored in Mystria first, then thought about a nighttime setting with the tree. So, I tried creating my own night sky. It was not easy.. I'm ok with the results, but I would love a tutorial for a night sky!! I really think adding in the fog file would have made a world of difference.. so I may try again in the future. :)

Now, on to another lovely, meet Magda!
When I saw her I envisioned her cascading hair in blue... and do you see her little fae friend? So sweet!!

On to our Dragon friend with Magda, in this file you get three images!!
The dragon and Magda by themselves, and the two together. When I tried the out of the box technique on this one, I cut a little too much into the image near the flower... I sat there looking at it a minute, and it didn't take long for me to see this bigger than life moon behind them.. so I colored that circle to represent a huge moon. :)

 Magda and sparkles are ready for the close up!
I loved coloring this image SO much.. there are so many possibilities in coloring the mane and tail!
Go check out Christy's blog to see all the DT work and the other files I have not shown you here *wink* There is also a big 30 hour sale.. 

"And since I have had several requests lately for a sale, I am going to have a 30-hour sale on all digis....sorry, clear stamps are not included. :)

30-hour sale to end July 25 at 8 AM CST

ENTER CODE: FANTASY to receive 15% off all digital images, excludes acrylic stamps"

Enjoy my friends!!

New digital release for July from SOG!

Happy Monday my friends!
To say adding a new member to the household has been, how do I put this.. crazy, would hardly cover it. But it has been crazy here, trying to get Amanda into a normal, responsible routine, job searching, etc. 
 Here's Samantha and Amanda

Today she has an interview at 9am, cross your fingers she gets this!!

Oh yeah.. and my sweet Katelyn... passed her learners test on the first go...
Hubs said she had to fill everything out herself there, that he was basically there as a chauffeur! ;)
 Thank goodness I asked for pics.. look how nervous Katelyn looks here. :)

I took her out on Saturday and Sunday for a couple of hours of training. Seeing her behind the wheel for REAL in this pic.. makes me feel.. old... if I look close enough, I can still see the little girl who ran around with her stuffed bunny and talked to her foot friend, "Henny." Treasure your littles, they grow up way too quickly!

Marching Band stuff starts up today. Pre-Band camp all week, a week away at Band camp next week, then practices til School starts. It officially feels like summer is over... before I know it, Katelyn will be driving us to drop her off at the HS! :)

Now.. you still with me?? hehe
I have a little more fun to share in digital form..
Some Odd Girl is releasing another new set of digital stamps this month.. just in time for back to school! :)

Say howdy to Teachers Pet Tia!

She is sooo cute!!! Don't mind her hair... that's me experimenting with coloring with black. Not horrible, not brilliant either.. I'll keep working on it. :)
Copic Markers Used:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13, R21
Eyes: Y23, YG41, YG45
Hair: N2, N4, N6, N8, BV34
Apple: R24, R27, R29, YG05, YG09
Clothes: Y15, Y18, Y19, B01, B02, B04, T5, T6, T8, R81, R83

They're here, new clear stamps!

So, if you clicked on the link I gave you the other day.. you already know the surprise!
If not, I am excited to tell you that Tiddly Inks is now creating clear stamps!!

I have lots to show you, so hold on for the ride. :)
This new release has 5 stamp sets to choose from.. they rock!

 With this set I created a swing card... it was my first, and such a cool thing! I could never cut this out on my own, but using my trusty Cameo Silhouette, I was able to create this in no time.

 I love that seashell border!

I had the pleasure of creating with this set too.. with it I created a sweet treat pocket to put in your loved ones lunch as a surprise, or just a quick gift for a friend.


 Don't get me wrong, Wryn is a favorite... but these sweet birds have me smiling hugely!!

(This card is also for the NEW Sketch Challenge up at Tiddly Inks Challenge blog!)
Notice how I used the digital sentiment? I colored it in photoshop to match the card. :)

Hope your day is fabulous!!
Go Tell Christy how much you LOVE this new release, and see more samples with these delightful stamps!

Ooh.. and she gives you a preview (kinda like mine in my sidebar *coming soon*)
of the new digital releases coming next week!

Have a great day!!

You know it.. Fab Friday!

Happy Friday!!

You know HedgieHugg I colored a couple weeks ago?
well included in that file is another sweet hedgie and some butterflies, I couldn't resist using them on a quick n easy card.
The cardstock I used for the background is shimmery, so it didn't photograph too well for me. I used a print n cut from the Silhouette Store, I think this one is a House of 3 - it's simple, Enjoy the Summer day!
i adore the butterflies just as much as the hedgie!

Join us over at Tiddly Inks, say Hi... let us know how you're spending your weekend, and visit my other amazingly talented team mates.

Have a fab weekend!!

and I want some bunny slippers too!

There is even some paper that comes with this file.. totally adorable.. check out all the fabulous DT work with the new Wryn here on Christy's blog.

I have some exciting news to share on a personal note, my 19yo step-daughter Amanda is coming to live with us awhile. We've been trying to get her here since Sunday using a bus line.. it has been very stressful, and we could use any prayers you can muster. Between missing buses for coming early and layovers and broken down buses, she still is not here yet. *sigh* All our nerves are pretty frayed, so please pray for her safety and for the rest of the buses to be on time as scheduled. I'm not sure how much more any of us can take.

warm hugs,
