Tiddly Inks Blog Hop Treasure Hunt!

Arrrrr!  Happy Treasure Huntin' Day!  hee hee  Did that sound like a pirate?  Well, it was supposed to!

Tiddly Inks is celebrating its very first birthday and I was thrilled to be asked to be a guest designer for the celebration!  You should have arrived here from Lynn's blog - if not, you may want to take your scurvy self back to where it all began - TIDDLY INKS.
You don't want to miss the fun as there will be a ton of inspiration, some hidden booty, and lots of new images we'll be showcasing!

My creation today features Tiddly Inks’s new image Party Time. Christy created about 20 new images for her birthday celebration and you can find the rest of the images HERE.

You sHould be collecting letters for tHe "secret pHrase"...pay close attention, you wouldn't want to miss anytHing Here...Hee Hee
(In case you didn't catch that - my letter is the letter H)
Close ups:
I am entering this cute pirate card into the:
Digi Design House Challenge- Paper Piecing


I decided to turn my pixies into pirates to go along with the theme of the hop - to make this card, I distressed the heck out of some Very Vanilla cardstock by SU!  I also used the following Tiddly images:  Treasure Map, Pirate Banner, and Treasure Chest.  I colored with Prismacolors & mineral spirits, paper-pieced the pirate pixies dresses, and added some "bling" in the form of clear gemstone brads.  I even printed out little mini eye patches and adhered them on, then drew the "strings"... LOL  I then tied some krafty-looking twine around the card.  I hand-wrote "Pixie" on the pennant and "Pirates" on the banner.

As a special thank you, I am offering one random commenter on today's post a prize - so make sure you leave a comment  to be entered to win one image of your choice from the Tiddly Inks shop!  Winner will be announced on my blog next week.


I loved the Party Time  image so much, I also decided to use it for my daughter's birthday card:

Sweet 16 - that's my girl.  I used Only Orange cardstock from Stampin' Up! and the DP is from Scrapbook Wizard.  Ribbon tags were made from snippets of SU! ribbon in my stash.  I printed out the "16" and used SU! punches - I hand wrote the "SWEET" inside the pennant.  Button is from my stash.

Just a little reminder that Tiddly Inks will be having a sale May 1-3 to celebrate it’s first birthday. If you are interested, visit the SHOP and then plan to create a fun project for the challenge or the next blog hop on May 10 that is open to everyone. You can check out the details on Christy’s blog HERE. It will be part of TI’s fun birthday party celebration and the special prize for the that blog hop will be a chance to win a digital stamp customized and designed for you.
Thanks so much for hopping in our Treasure Hunt. I hope you enjoyed seeing all the new images, some beautiful cards and visiting with our special guests and regular designers!  Now......

You're getting close to the end, mateys - don't stop now or you'll have to walk the plank!  Peace.
