Paper Sundaes & Tiddly Inks

Happy Friday!  Well, Trev had surgery on his elbow yesterday - he had some kind of "growth" called a lipoma (which is basically fatty tissue) growing on his elbow, and it was starting to bother him because it was so big!  It didn't hurt him, though.  Anyway, he had it removed yesterday and had to have 3 stitches to close it up.  In the meantime, the poor kid also got sick this week - feverish, white bumps on his throat... so he was tested for strep while we were at the doctor's, and he has only been to school one day this week for a couple of hours.  He didn't have strep, but he did have ear infections in both ears!  So he's home again today. I sure hope the sicknesses are done with us for this season!!!

I made this card for the:

TiddlyInks is sponsoring this challenge, so I decided to use a TiddlyInks image "Petite Q".
 She is colored with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits.  Cardstock and ribbon by SU!  DP from Pressed Petals. Crown and wand brads from my stash.  

And.... while I was playing with my Tiddly images, I decided to make a Father's Day card for the:

Tiddly Inks Challenge #41 - Kraft With Me

 I used these manly toolbox and hammer images, printed them on SU! Kraft cardstock and colored with Prismacolors and mineral spirits.  I also used Kraft as my base.  DP in Kraft and Ruby Red, brads in gold and Ruby Bed - all by SU! I had a hard time coming up with the layout and stuff, but overall I really like the rustic look of it.  Peace.
