Red, white and blue at Tiddly Inks!

Good morning!  Yay!  It's Tiddly Tuesday!  Today I get to reveal my card using the adorable new Patriotic Wryn that I sneak peaked last week!  Yep, it's challenge time again!

Well as many of you know, Independence Day is coming up this week for the US and I'm sure there will be plenty of celebrations, so our challenge for you this fortnight is to use mainly red, white and blue on your creation.

Here's my card:

The papers are from Authentique and I based this card on The Deconstructed Sketch #57.  They really are the best sketches!  The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and the charm is from The Secret Garden on Da Wanda.  The swirly bling is by Prima and the sentiment is a sticker by SRM.

Here's a close-up of Patriotic Wryn:

And here are the copics I used:

Do please take a moment to check out my teamies' fabulous creations!  They totally rocked this challenge and you will be thoroughly inspired by their creations!  

I hope you have time to enter our challenge!  We really love seeing your Tiddly Inks creations!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Incy Wincy Designs: Patriotism (Use only the colours from your country)
Paper Playtime: Red, White and Blue plus a diecut
Gingerloft Challenge: Red, White and Blue
2 Sisters Challenges: Red, White and Blue plus optional bling

Before I go, there's a new Wryn being released at Tiddly Inks today!  Check her out, she's so cute:

This is Wryn - Thank You Beary Much and she comes with a sentiment AND she's available now for a beary special price of $1!!!  Whoohoo!  

Also, have you heard about our Facebook Group Page?  It's a fun spot for people to share their Tiddly Inks projects and ask questions and just generally hang out.  I hear there may even be a freebie there at the moment!  If you are not already a member, you can ask to join (look in the top right corner) and we would love to have you!

Have a lovely day!

Hi Arabella, wow hunni what a lovely card! Also love that new stamp, what a sweetie! So how's Athens? Hot I presume LOL?? Do you notice anything on the crisis in Greece? We sometimes see people protesting on the telli so I was just wondering. Hugs, Frea

Hi Sweetie, just tried to answer your email but for some reason Outlook keeps returning it saying it can't be delivered. No idea what's going on....
Anyhow, here's what I mailed you:
Hi Arabella,
It is a totally different mentality than ours. We were brought up with the idea that you only spend what you have and you don’t borrow money to buy stuff. Here in the Netherlands we also have to cut down on loads of things. Sure, people don’t like it, but we realize it is necessary in order to prevent worse. It seems to me the Greek have no clue what will happen to them if the country were to go bankrupt.
Anyhow, you’re a lucky girl, summer doesn’t want to seem to come our way. I’m off to France in 1,5 weeks time, hopefully it will get a little warmer by then.
Hugs, Frea
