I'm a Tiddly Inker!

Woohoo!  Guess what?!  I made it on to the Tiddly Inks Design Team! {...happy dance...} I'm sooo super excited!  I have been in love with Christy's gorgeous images for ever so long and I'm very excited to be working with such a talented and lovely group of designers!

Here are the team links in case you haven't visited any of these super talented ladies before... You might even be able to spot a few new names on the list!  There's me, Joey, Kindra and Tracy... all newbies.

So today is my first official post for the Tiddly Inkers and it happens to be the start of a two week challenge (#74) with the theme Anything Goes.

I made a card using the sweet Christmas Pixie who I have had sitting around waiting to pop onto a card for ages now.

I followed this sketch from my new teamie Jen and boy was it a hard one!  

The papers are from Crate Paper as is the sticker.  I cut the tag with my Slice machine and crocheted the flower.  The charm and button are from my stash.  I added lots of Stickles around the place and did a bit of stitching.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Deconstructing Jen #27: Sketch (a friendly challenge yourself challenge)
The Crafty Pad #148: Festive Cheer (Red, Green, Gold etc...)
2 Sisters Challenge blog #66: Let it Sparkle
Floweret #8: Christmas

Here's a close up:

Unfortunately I forgot to record my copic numbers... sorry.

Have a lovely day all!  I had better get a move on with my food prep for tonight's dinner party!
