New Year Freebies and Store Update

So what with the year ending and all, I thought I would go back through my entries and re-post some of my freebies for about 24 hours. EDIT: The deadline has passed so I have removed some of the images. You are free to search the blog to find the original posts however---use the search bar on the side. I also have permanent freebies in the shop. Click the little artist in the top bar to visit the shop.


If you are grabbing a freebie, please do consider also posting my badge on your blog (see the side bar) or voting for Tiddly Inks (see the side bar---big pink button :D), or Liking us on Facebook (see the robot up top), or just leaving me a note. :)


Tiddly Inks challenges will be starting back up again on Jan 11, so check back then for some new images. The shop is still open, but I won't be adding many new images until Jan 11...

It goes without screaming that these images:
  1. are for your personal use ONLY (no commercial use allowed)
  2. are not allowed to be sold, traded or given away anywhere else
  3. the copyright remains with Tiddly Inks
  4. please give credit to Tiddly Inks with a clickable link (http://tiddlyinks.com) whenever possible 

And just a reminder that under no circumstances should you allow any of my images to be posted online in any form that allows others to download or copy them (by right-clicking or otherwise)..please help me protect me art. These freebies are a gift but not ALL my images are gifts---they are my only means of paying my bills. Please treat them as such. 
Off my soap box now...carry on saving your treat. :) 
Happy New Year!!

See you on January 11. :)

My Top 10 Cards from 2010 Blog Hop

My good blogging friend Mrs Weyremaster (cool name, huh? LOL) has asked us to join in a blog hop that showcases our Top 10 cards from 2010.  You can find her blog post here and you have until Wednesday at 7 PM to join in. :) 


I have posted my favorite cards from the year  (some are mine and some aren't LOL), and I have added my favorite freebie from 2010 too at the bottom of the post...you can have it if you don't already have it. 

Here are some my favorite cards from the year. :)
Annie (my very first card from 2010)
Double Trouble---made for my sweet sister, the mother of twins
 Whatcha Doing --made by Lysa to demonstrate her amazing shiny hair technique (I still can't do it that well LOL)
 What is there not to love about cookies? Made by Jess using Cookie Bugg.
 One of my favorite characters ---Pinky
  Another one of my favorite characters --Gossmere
Everyday princess made by Caz...this is the first card I saw of hers and I loved it. :)

 A set  of cards made by Larissa as seen in the magazine layout where she was published many times....she is amazing.
 Alice - made by me...:)
Another Annie made by the amazing Donna of 3 Umbrellas...
 My first spinner card using Star Bugg
Made for my daughter to celebrate her love of the sugar plum fairies.
 And two cards using images by my lovely friend Betty of SBS. :)
You can't go wrong with a single card by Dawn B. :)
 Another card made for my Little Bit. :)
 All three of these cards were made by members of the joint blog hop Tiddly Inks shared with Simply Betty Stamps...gorgeous.  They were made by Debbie, Portia and Eulanda. :)


Okay, so that is a few more than 10...LOL 

Here is my favorite freebie from 2010. If you like it and don't have it, then just click on the picture and save the larger file. :)

New Year's Card Event

Hi everybody!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We did...and are pretty much back to normal now. LOL Now, if only someone would show up and put away the decorations--hhmmmm. :)


I like to post other people's card on the front of the shop (see here for the latest) and I would like to see some New Year's Cards. If you are making a New Year's card using a Tiddly Inks image (pick any of these for starters or the baby from last week---scroll down), then please share it in the inlinkz collection below and I will see if I can post it on the shop front. :)


One lucky winner may be chosen to have their card on the shop front for a few weeks and receive $10 worth of stamps of their choice. 


I hope to see your cards and that you have a wonderful new year. :)
XOXO
Christy

Holiday Wishes and Gift

Merry Christmas all! 
I wanted to thank each of you for supporting Tiddly Inks this year. It was such a pleasure to get to know some of you on a personal level and in general to feel the joy and support from so many new followers. Tiddly Inks opened in May 2010 and I feel very blessed to have this much support in that amount of time. It has been a simply remarkable year for me---mostly due to the kindness and love of many people who were once strangers, but are now friends. :) Even if I have never had a chance to chat with you, it means a lot to me to know that my images are being used to create projects and cards for your families and loved ones. It is wonderful to be a part of other people's creative processes...amazing really. :) So thank you for allowing me into that special time and place on your crafting table. It makes me grin and then grin some more. LOL

All I can say is thank you...and offer you a Christmas present. :) 
Just click on this link to save Baby New Year in his top hat or click on the picture for a larger version. :)

The shop is still open, but I plan to take a few days off to be with family and just relax...I will be back directly after Christmas. See you then. :)
Many blessings to you and yours, 
Christy

New Year's Images

Hi all! If your past few weeks have been like mine, you have been busy trying to get ready for holidays and dealing with family illnesses. Now, I rate those about the same in pleasure (so much funnnnn!!! LOL), so it was with real pleasure that I made these new images over the weekend. They are on sale too.

One is a Lilly Bean toasting with her huge flute...bottoms up! :) 

The other is a tongue-in-cheek salute to the same idea (but she definitely doesn't have anything tasty in her bottle...LOL). I would avoid the skull-marked bottles on New Years. :D. 

Some dramatic toasts are this week's freebie, grab them below by clicking on the image: 
I will probably have a little blog candy on Christmas Day (Saturday of this week....:). See you then. :)
