It's Tiddly Tuesday!

Good morning!  It's that time of the week again... Tiddly Tuesday!  Yay!  There's lots going on this week at Tiddly Inks!  Firstly, we are super lucky to have three super talented new designers joining the team!  Please hop over to the challenge blog to give a warm welcome to Alyce, Vicky and Emmy!  

Christy has an adorable new digi image for us this week too... Head over to Christy's blog to check her out in colour!  Isn't she sweet?

And finally, it's time for a new challenge!   With Monther's Day coming up in the US we thought we would celebrate with a Mum challenge.  Of course if Mother's Day cards are not your thing, you can still join in with a gorgeous feminine card... just make sure you use a Tiddly Inks image!

Here's my card using Little Bugg:

I love these little Buggs!  This card is a bit busier than my usual style I think.  You know how sometimes you really want to put certain things on the card?  Well I pulled out all these bits and pieces and decided I WOULD fit them on the card come hell or high water!  Talk about making things difficult for myself! LOL!

Anyway, the paper is from Crate Paper, and a little bit of October Afternoon.   The sentiment came with Little Bugg.  The Mum tiles are from The Girls Paperie and the frame is from Crate Paper.  The lovely ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and the charm is from The Secret Garden on Da Wanda.

Here's a close-up:

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Catered Crop: The Letter B (I have used a Bugg, brads, buttons and bling)
Dream Valley Challenges: For a Special Lady
One Stitch at a Time: Use a Digi/Mother's Day
Paper Sundaes: Mother's Day

We hope you can join us this fortnight!
