Friends are the flowers of life - Tiddly Inks Blog Hop

Update:  Doh!  I got confused and thought the blog hop was starting at 12am CST!  Turns out it was 12pm...  I was so proud of myself for working out the 3 time zones I have to convert through and scheduling my post! Oh well, better early than late though right?


It's Tiddly Tuesday on Friday!  Welcome to Tiddly Inks' first blog hop of the year!!!  Since it's Friday the 13th today, we thought we would reverse the usual negativity associated with this day and celebrate our friends instead!

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 you 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!  

For my card today I decided to use the adorable new Wryn - Close to my Heart. You can read all about the creation of Wryn and why she is close to Christy's heart here.





































































Isn't she adorable?!  I have coloured Wryn with copics (see details below) and the papers I have paired her with are from Crate Paper.  The crochet flower is one of mine and the buttons are from my stash.  The felt flower is from Sew Sweet and the brads are from My Mind's Eye.

Here is a close-up of Wryn:
























And here are the copics I used:



















I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Paperplay Challenges 2012 week 2: In Stitches
PixieDust Studio Challenge #109: Put your heart into it
My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge #39: Here come the girls

Did you make it down to here?  I hope so, because Christy has very generously offered to give away this cute little guy to one random commenter on my blog post today...

I made a card with this handsome fellow (Come in Cuteness) recently and I fell in love with him!  You can see my card here.   So, leave me a comment if you want to be in with a chance to win him!  And I do hope you enjoy the blog hop!  My Tiddly Inks teamies may also be offering a digital image as a prize to one lucky person for commenting today, so what are you waiting for!  Go hopping!

Happy Friday!

Hi Arabella, another stunning card! Love your papers and the colours you've used are just wonderful, they pop off the screen with vibrancy. Your layout is brilliant and I the flower is just gorgeous.

And what can I say about the image, it's just possible you know that I'll have to stop following your blog if you are going to lead me to temptation like this!!
