Tiddly Inks Love

Helloooo!!!
Seems like it's been forever since I've been on here!  That's not a normal thing, but the last 2 weeks have been full of...stuff :)
June 29th was the day of Matthew's Tough Mudder race, which was amazing!  What a great event, for such a great cause too!  We loved watching everyone there come together as one large team and cheer everyone on.  It was so awesome, even with the massive downpour that swept through half way through the race.  We all ended up being "mudders" that day since the whole entire field became ankle deep mud...but hey, it was fun :)

So upon my return home I discovered that Tiddly Inks is having a design team call.  How could I pass that up!!??  There isn't a TI image that I don't seem to love, and though my collection is a bit small, they seem to be the images I turn to most often when I need to make a card.
And the image I used today is the one that seems to get used the most.  I love it.  It always seems to fit my needs and is so versatile.  Plus, I just love coloring her up :)
See!!  I told you she's a cutie :)  This is Wryn-Close to My Heart and she's just so perfect!  I've colored her up with a combination of Copic, Spectrum Noir, and ShinHan markers.  I'm having a battle between the 3 brands right now to see which one I like best...so far, ShinHan is winning :)

Back to my card!  While home this past week, I was able to pick up a package full of goodies that I had purchased and mailed home to my mother-in-laws place.  Shipping to the states is much cheaper and since we would be stopping in there, it worked out best that way.  So the papers I used are from the Summer Sorbet line from Little Darlings!  They are so fresh and fun!  I love the sweet colors and adorable patterns on these papers, and they worked perfect for this card.
I threw in a cute little doily behind the image and cut out a small little heart as well.  That was supposed to go behind the flower, but it just didn't work...so I tucked it behind the image.  The daisy is just a set of punches layered together and placed on top of a triple strand twine bow.
I completed the card by decorating the inside to match and adding my sentiment stamp.  I realized after I stamped it that I could have easily put it on the front...but I had forgotten I had this little stamp until the front was done...so it went on the inside.  And is so perfect for the card!

After having such a long break from making cards...and honestly being really disappointed with what I had been making, this was a fantastic way to jump back into it!  I love everything about this card, from the cute papers, to the soft pink, to the absolutely adorable Wryn with her heart.  I can feel the inspiration starting to surge back through me and it feels so good :)

Thanks for stopping by today!!  I truly love that you take the time out of your day to read my posts!  And I know I've finally hit the 100 follower mark!!  Woo Hoo!!!  That means I should probably get some sort of giveaway put together...hmm...let me think on that and I'll get back to you :)
