On Cloud 99

Evening all, how goes it?  Things are very exciting at Squirrel Towers today, in fact, I have something to share with you that I have been sitting on since 6.30 this morning and I know pride comes before a fall but if I don't tell someone soon I shall burst so I might just as well share it with all my fabulous bloggie buddies and then you can all laugh as you watch me topple over.

And breathe.

Two weeks ago, I sent an email to Tim Holtz (that's Lord Tim, he of the Distress Inks) principally asking if there were any new ReInker colours in the pipeline but was also cheeky enough to add a link to my Distress Ink Gallery and an invitation for him to see what I'd been up to with the inks. 

Not for one moment did I expect anything other than an automated reply or from someone else at Ranger.  Imagine the increase in my heart rate this morning when I saw sitting in my InBox a response.  Want to know what it says?

And breathe again.  It says:

All I can say is wow, wow, wow!  Your coloring is amazing!  In fact, I myself would love a tutorial from you on how you do it.  If you decide to create one I would happily link your blog post on mine when you do.  Thanks for sharing your creativity....love the coloring, really, I do.
Tim

OMG OMG OMG OMG !!!!!!!!   Is that almost an equivalent to "By Royal Appointment"?  Sadly no plans at present for new ReInkers colours coming though.

It's ok, I will stop squealing soon, I promise.  Hopefully long enough to mail him back with a link to the tutorial that is already there.  And maybe this is the prompt I need to do a Part 3: Advanced !!

Hugs, a very happy Squirrel xxx
