To Celebrate Mothers Day at TInks

Hey guys. Sorry this post is going up so late.. geez.. I've been really out of it this last week or so. Don't know what is going on.. think I've just got a lot going on right now - barely got five minutes to myself what with work and home. I've been tryna get my room/ desk area more organised so it works better for me from a practical point of view.. but it's one of those things you wish you'd never started. You know the ones.. LOL!

Anyway. Enough of that. I've been a bad DT member on all points, sucked at replying to messages and emails and even worse at keeping my blog up to date and scheduling posts!! On the bright side though.. I have treated myself to a new camera and some SU! goodies. So that should get me going.. once I actually get the time to sit down at my newly organised (ish) desk. I still gotta get that finished. Gahh.. the list is never ending!!

So the new challenge over at Tiddly Inks this fortnight is..

MOTHER'S DAY

Now that has been and gone here in the UK.. so I decided to create a tag I can use on a SMASH* book page about my her. More of that later on in the month I'm hoping.

So I decided to use Wryn - Close to my Heart for this card, and I've coloured her with PM's and FM's to match my new papers from First Edition. I seen the brown and blue combo with the splashes of grey and blue and knew I had to have these. Had to. :)


Blush, Soft Peach, Rose Peach, Baby Pink
Pastel Yellow, Ginger, Terracotta, Cocoa, Walnut, Black
Lipstick Red, Red, Berry Red
Ivory, Buttercup, Mustard, Sunflower, Gold
Pale Blossom, Sorbet, Tea Gree, Pebble Blue, Grey Green
Warm Grey 2-4

I fussy cut Wryn and adhered her to the card using 2mm dimensionals - tried to keep it pretty flat. Don't want a fat SMASH* book that won't close now, do I? :) I used my craft knife to cut the area out between those amazing shoes of hers - I need a lot more practice at that! 

I created a 'Mam' sentiment using some Studio G alpha stamps and some Sage Shadow ink from SU! I tied some ivory jute twine.. I think that's what it's called? through the eyelet at the top and voila. Job done.

Head over to the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog now and see what my other awesome teamies have got for ya to drool over!!

I'll try and check in more often guys. I promise.
