By The Tips Of My Whiskers

Hello again!  I don't know how you do it, but when I am blog browsing during the week, I keep a little notebook beside me and jot down the challenges that I think I might like to enter - and it is always the theme that interests me, rarely the prize.  So when I was going back through my notes this morning I had a little panic when I realised that the current challenge at Tiddly Inks Challenge is about to end.  I do hate leaving things until the last minute, but I was determined to enter.


And I guess it was because I was all flustered, but it took three attempts to make this one small and simple card!


I have used the Tiddly Inks Hello Sunshine clear stamp set
Tiddly image coloured with Polychromos pencils and fussy cut - so glad her ankles aren't any thinner!
Clouds done by making Post-It Note masks with Joy Crafts cloud dies
Sky done with Shaded Lilac and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks and an ink duster brush
Beach simply water coloured in various shades of Distress Ink oranges and browns
Matting layers are from leftovers box
5x5 card base

This is my second post today - if you fancy a peek at my earlier Lucky Pants
then you can find that one right here

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Hope the weather is sunny like your lovely card tomorrow after today's deluge - we live in hope. Such a fab scene you have created with such a darling image. I buy a page a day diary around Feb/March time when they are cheap as chips, and have it next to me when browsing so I can note the theme on the start date. xx

It doesn't look like you were all flustered making this gorgeous card, it brightens up this very dull, grey Sunday morning :o)

I really like this card. I think the soft background is lovely and it's a perfect scene for Wryn. Xx

So, let me get this right. You wanna live in my shed so you can garden at my house? Just so I know! Wouldn't wanna get the wrong supplies in... X
