Cosmic Birthday and Tiddly Inks New Releases!

Good morning!  Well we had our New Years guest trip on the boat and it all went well.  The crew were all exhausted when we got home though!  We had very little sleep due to the weather.  We took yesterday off work to recuperate and relax a bit and I finally got to spend some time catching up on some crafting that I got very behind in.

Today is the first challenge of the year at Tiddly Inks and we have a couple of changes to our challenges this year.  You can check out the details here.  We also have two new super talented members joining the Tiddly Inkers... Hannah and Wendy, so if you get a chance it would be lovely if you could check out their blogs and say hello! 

And now, for more exciting news... Christy has been been busy creating again and today is the new release day for the adorable Wryn 'n Friends as well as Silver the dog.  You don't want to miss these cuties!  Head on over to Christy's blog and have a peek!  Christy is also having a 36 hour 30% off sale so you'll want to find out how you can take advantage of that too!

I have to say I think Wryn is just the cutest wee girl ever and I can't wait to get back to my craft desk and make some more cards with her!    I'll show you my first Wryn card tomorrow, but for today, here's my card for this fortnight's challenge... the theme is CELEBRATE!

This little guy is called Come in Cuteness... isn't he gorgeous?!  I have coloured him with copics (see details bellow) and added some Stickles to his antennae.  The papers are from October Afternoon, American Crafts and My Mind's Eye.  The sentiment is from Pollycraft.  The wee planet in the top right corner is a rubber charm from October Afternoon.  

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp and Show: Something Old, Something New (old paper in my stash, new rubber charm and stamp)
Heartsong Inspirations #29: Anything Goes
Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #100: Let's Celebrate

Here's a close up:

And here are the copics I used:

I hope you get a chance to join us in the challenge this round!  And do let us know what you think of the new releases!  We hope you love them as much as we do!

Have a lovely day!

Hi Arabella, as always a glorious card. Love your colouring, the layout and the image is just the most adorable lil' monster going!

Already my resolution is being tested - Wryn is the sort of image I normally go for! Maybe she will be my next month treat.
