Mix 'N Match with Tiddly Inks & Make it Crafty!

Hello Tiddly Inks & Make it Crafty fans!!!

What a fun project it was to merge two digi stamp companies, combining one's backgrounds with another's characters! As you can see, I went with a chaise lounge from Make it Crafty and a mermaid from Tiddly Inks! I am sure there must be some furniture at the bottom of the ocean! This card reminds me of the scene from Disney's The Little Mermaid, when she is singing about her thingamajigs!

As for Supplies: Copics, Diamond Stickles, flower sequins, little brads, netting

Thank You for checking in!!!

May your day go swimmingly! (pun intended) :)

Just a Hunk by Stampotique

Hi There!

How about "ahunka ahunka burning love"? For a long while now I have been yearning to bust out "Hunk" by Stampotique, and finally the occasion has presented itself. One of my very special friends is going through somewhat of a life funk. I made this little card for him to remind him to put his crown on and PLAY!!! Even though he has yet to receive this card, he somehow got the message and is presently enjoying a trip to London with his boyrfriend! How fun does that sound?

Here he is! As for Supplies: "Hunk" and "2 sticks" by Daniel Torrente for Stampotique/colored in copics/ticket by hotlz/diamond stickles/scraps of paper

Thank You for stopping by!

Practicing Simplicity

Ever feel like a mermaid at the bottom of the sea? thinking, "someone told me there were plenty of fish, where are they?" Not that I'm looking, or a bottom-of-the-sea-mermaid or anything. Not that I wouldn't mind a hunky merman flipping his glowy bronze self my way; or anything. Not that. Not that. Not that. Or anything.

But if I was mermaid, I would have hot, red electric hair, I would wear a turquoise bikini top and have a purple tail. And my name would be...super you would find on the bottom of an OPI nail polish bottle. Not like Carmen Electra or Spartacus, Not like "Tutti Frutti Tonga" or "Lincoln Park After Dark" but...something so super amazing, I just can't even think of right now.
And with that super amazing name, I would swim aroun
d and save drunken sailors. I might even rescue a couple of bees and maybe even some turtles that get lost from the pack. I would definitely eat seaweed. And I would never have to worry about what shoes to wear. But knowing me, I would probably fall in love with a dolphin...and then I would spend my nights daydreaming, poached on some picturesque black rock, ima
gining how my life would be if I was a dolphin. After practicing my dolphin noises, I would realize I was never going to be a dolphin, and then blog about it. In bubbles. Like telepathically. And then the bubble would float to the shore, and it would pop at the tail of my merman to be. And he would sense my scaly presence and open merheart and you know...the rest is happily ever history.

But until then, here's a glimpse of a Super Exotically Named Mermaid at The Bottom of the Sea.

(if you actually read the aboveness, you can sense I have had a few ounces of caffeine too many!)
