I'm Tickled Pink

Woo HOO!! How exciting!
Another exciting thing is that it is my 3 yr old son's first Christmas concert today at 10 am
I'm so excited to see him perform!!
It's the last day of school for Christmas Holidayz!!
Whatever will I do with my children at my heels 24/7 !!


Before I get going to that though, I must share a card with you I made with a stamp from The Tickled Pink Stamps Store. I bought 2 digital images about ooooo.....1 month ago or so and have been ACHING to get at them, but wasn't sure how to present them, until I started experimenting with reinker watercoloring (known as distress ink coloring -if I had any!! lol) as stated, my alternative is SU reinkers & my aquapainter.
I must say, I am totally, totally addicted to coloring this way!
Anywho, I am very pleased with the way Lil Christmas Willow turned out & I chose to display her on the Tickled Pink Stamps Monthly Challenge Sketch!

On the left hand side, horizontally, you will see I have 3 layers of ribbon. Raffia on the base, a fabric brown trim (I bought at our local fabric store) & the brown ginghamy looking ribbon from my Really Reasonable Ribbons monthly ribbon club assortment. Gawd I {love} their ribbons!

I added liquid applique & glitter to parts of Willows' outfit!
The bling you see below is from a pack I bought at Hobby Lobby. Very vintage. And the organza ribbon is from CTMH.

The frame you see below is from Dollarama & although I wanted to put a sentiment in it, I thought it better just to be an image, so I stamped a wee snowflake.
Could this be considered a holiday birthday card?
The Paper pack is also a purchase from Hobby Lobby along with my newly aquired Tim Holtz distress/vintage papers; which is where this little sheet of music panel came from.

And the completed inside

While I am at it I am also going to throw my name into the NEW Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge , which is looking for a GDT for 3 months. What a pleasure it would be to work with such talented women. I think I'll put my name in & see how the cookie crumbles.
And Yes I said it was a NEW challenge blog that starts January 7 with BLOG CANDY  to launch. The catch........the challenge is only for the Tickled Pink Stamps ranges. For these ranges, check out the store HERE.

OMG Love it, love the colouring, I have been looking for distress inks too, but they didn't have them at Hobby Lobby and well neither does Michael's. Online I suppose, this card is awesome in a million ways!
