Tiddly Tuesday - design team changes and free sentiment

Hi and welcome to Tuesday! :) I have some new character images pending, but I am not ready to share them yet, so I decided to celebrate with a FREE sentiment--dedicated to you, me and all our friends. :) I wish we remembered this every time we looked in the mirror and saw the grey hair, or imaginary imperfection that only our eyes see....bloom my lovely ladies, as we are all enough today and always. :)  So that is is my handwritten, self-affirming thought for this week. :) Just click it and save the JPG image to print it or resize it for your cards.
We also have a few changes to our design team....we are losing several very lovely members and gaining some equally lovely members.

I wasn't expecting to change anyone out, but life changes and within the past few weeks, three of our lovely ladies have decided to step down for positive reasons like needing more family time or taking a new class---all great reasons that I fully support. :) They will be greatly missed however and the whole team and I wish them many lovely things for the future. Good luck Pops (actually moving to being a  part-time "coloring friend"), Asa, Leah, and Lou Mac!!! You provided amazing inspiration for many viewers and lovely company for our team. We love you all and send you off with big hugs!  They all promised to be around, so we hope they do stop in from time to time. :)

We have some lovely members joining us, and you probably will recognize them right away. Please meet 4 amazing and talented ladies:




 

I am blessed to have and to have had so many amazing ladies on the design team---and I am sure you can see why. :) 

Please do stop by the challenge this week and add your creation!

And check out the amazing tutorial by Melissa on coloring stone HERE!!

Have a great week! :) 

PS: If you make something with the freebie sentiment ( I am thinking art journal page), please stop by the Facebook fan page and share.

Joint Blog Hop with Make It Crafty March 14-15

Welcome! I wanted to direct you to the blog hop that is happening  HERE March 14-15. The Tiddly Inks team joined up with the Make It Crafty team to showcase the brand new digital images and you can join the blog hop HERE. It will sooooo be worth your time to stop in...the samples are AMAZING!!

Pyramids and vases from Make It Crafty
The team has simply stunned me with the SPECTACULAR designs and I can't even express how inspirational they are....I hope you join in and hop along. :)

My daughter is an absolute Egypt freak and has been a fan of all things Egyptian for several years, for some reason especially Anubis, the jackal headed deity. When Tutankhamen's sarcophagus was on display in a museum about 2 hours from here, we HAD to go for a visit and she loved all the displays.

So needless to say all these images are for her, but the below project was a special request for her birthday. She wanted a beautiful Cleopatra with a jackal....

Coptic jar-from Make It Crafty. :) 
Sentiment- in the  extras pack


And since we are in a celebrating mood, let's have a sale. :) All these images are only available in digital form (unless you can convince to make some in rubber...hehe), so our sale will be for digital orders only (excludes clear stamps).

From March 14-18, enter this code to receive 25% off your digital orders. 

CODE: EGYPTN


Have fun and I hope you are inspired. :) 

XOXO

Christy

A Rainy Throwback here at Tiddly with Donna!

Hi ya everyone and welcome to Tiddly Thursday Throwback!  Thursday Throwback is a good way for us to showcase Tiddly Ink images that haven't been in the spotlight for awhile.  We all always get so excited about using the new products at Tiddly Inks that we forget to use the previous released cuties.  Having a throwback allows us to share some of our favorites and allows new Tiddly followers to see some of the amazing images that are hidden in the shop!

Today, the wonderful Donna is sharing with us and she has worked up one of the cutest tags I have ever seen using the amazingly cute Donna image.  Not only do they share the same name, they look alike :)

 I have to admit that Donna is one of my favorite characters ever!  Look at that adorable little frog!  The options for using this cute image is endless; a pick me up for a friend or a child's birthday.

Let's see how Donna of Donna's Diary used Donna :)
SOOOOO adorable, am I right???  I love this creation, not only is Donna's coloring lovely, the patterns and colors of this tag are breathtaking.  Make sure to check out more of Donna's work on her blog.

Let's talk winner!  The winner of Danny's Duck is:
