Tiddly Inks Challenge - Anything Goes

It's time for a new challenge over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog and this week our theme is 

Anything Goes!

My card features Cocoa Wishes. I made a box, which is perfect for gifting cookies, marshmallows, hot chocolate, etc. My kiddos love when I make this type of project, they wait patiently in the wings until I am finished taking the photos and then they nab the goodies out of the box.

I didn't write down the instructions to make the box as I did it, but the bottom section is 4.5" wide and 4" tall. The whole thing is 7" tall and it's 2" in depth. I used a corner punch to round the corners.


Coloured with Copic Markers:
Skin - E000, E00, E11, E04, R20, R22
Hair - E13, E15, E17, E18
Blue - B91, B93, B95, B97
Red - R22, R24, E07
Chick - Y11, Y13 Y15, Y19
Mallows - R20, R22
Cocoa - E35, E25
Ground - E40, E42, E43, 0


Other products used:
Card - Papermilldirect
Papers - Prima "North County"
Lace, Ribbon & Twine

You can see the rest of the Design Team samples over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog
Remember - you must use a Tiddly Inks stamp or digital image

Stitched Heart, Pennant & Tag Dies

Crafty Round-Up :)

Good morning, and HAPPY Friday!! The sun is shining here today but the cooler temperatures of Autumn have arrived and I am loving it! What's not to love about Autumn? The colours, the cool air, the chilly nights, a teasing of what winter will bring - open fires, comfy duvets and fluffy slipper socks. My favourite time of year  ♥ ♥ ♥

Today I have a little bit of a round up from the week. Work began on installing new, high speed, internet cables in my area, and for the past couple weeks my internet connection hasn't been much use. It could be just coincidence that my connection speeds have dipped dismally while works went on, but thankfully they are finished now and I finally have the option to go high speed - should I want to ;) 

Anyway, this week my blog should have been kinda busy so, in this post, I will cover what I need to catch up with to this point. I will still have one, or maybe two, more posts later today. :/ 

First up - 
This was the last week to showcase the August 2016 kit

Every Thursday I will have a project, with full instructions on how to make it by hand, and, where possible, I will make a Studio file for those who like to use their Silhouette machine. I will also have some technique tutorials to share. 

This week I made a card with a treat box attached. 




To colour the house I used Elaineabella's Colour Map. To get the details on what Color Maps are, and how to get them, CLICK HERE
