Tiddly Inks "Anything Goes" & Blog Hop

Hop on over to the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog for the "Anything Goes" Challenge #49.

As well don't forget the Birthday Celebration Blog Hop, details found here.

Isn't this Lilli image gorgeous. She reminds me of my two daughters when they were toddlers, red hair and all.

I made my Twisted Easel card using Laura Lipe's instructions found here.


















I used SU-Chocolate Chip and coordinating Dutch Mustard Soup DP by Jillibean-soup The DP was part of my Mother's Day gift from my hubby and kids as was the Inkessentials white gel pen - hurray!

The Sentiment is by Studio G Clear Stamps fit into a Cuddle-Bug Tag die cuts. I used a Scallop Circle SVG by LA-Cricut, and a Scallop Border SVG by Images by Heather M to complete the inside of the card.

Put on your sunglasses for this next piece - sorry, I went ULTRA bright. I Copic coloured Lilli Claire - another adorable image that looks like my girls *sigh*.
















The DP is Echo Park - Summer Days. The are borders is Lace/Doily by Martha Stewart and the Zig Zag border is from Images by Heather M. The Bell-bottom font reads "Forever in Blue Jeans" - it didn't show up well in the photo.


Tiddly Inks is also hosting a little puzzle adventure today. If you came from Marlena's blog, then you are on the right track to solving the puzzle. My puzzle piece is shown below.
