Welcome to Tiddly Inks' first blog hop of the year. :) We are celebrating the many friends that make our world a more lovely place and are so glad you are here as one of them. :) We are trying to keep this simple, so the blog hop is based on the Challenge blog home page. Instead of directing you to the next page, we suggest you keep the challenge blog open and create a new window for the hopping around (click Control when you click on each link and it will open a new window). After your visit with me today, just click HERE to return you to the main list (and that is where the prizes are listed...hint!) Have fun playing along with everyone!
I made a card for todays hop. :) On my card I have used the very sweet image Wryn - Grow a little love from Tiddly Inks. Isn't she a sweetie?? I have printed Wryn on cardstock with a linen structure and then I coloured her with my pencils. I used a black glaze pen to colour her eyes. I have cut the image out. I have used blue cardstock for my card and added a layer of design paper from Maja design. The paper is sowing seeds from the Life in the country collection. I have cut an oval from the blue cardstock and adhered the image on top of it. I have cut a strip from the blue card stock and wrapped a white ribbon around it and adhered them both on my card. I have punched 3 large and 3 smaller flowers with the floral punches 1 from Nellie Snellen. In the centre fo the flowers I added a little red dot with a perlen pen.
I also decorated the inside of my card. I changed the colour of the image into blue and printed a smaller size that I used on the front on some white paper.
I want to enter my card in the following challenges:

I also wanted to make another project with this cute Wryn image. So I decided to make a bookamrk. I saw this one on Dawns blog and I really wanted to try to make one myself. I have cut an oval with the dienamics oval open scallop doily from My favorite things. I have printed another Wryn - Grow a little love image and coloured her again with my pencils. This time I gave her a paperpieced dress with the Maja design paper. I have punched 3 little retro flowers and added a blue circle to their centres. On top of the blue circles I added a little dot of red perlen pen.
I have used white organza ribbon and a red button from my stash to create a band for the bookmark.
If you like this Wryn image, as much as I do, I have some good news for you! Christy was very sweet and told me I could give this image away as a little bloghop price.
