Tiddly Inks - New Challenge and Release

 Hi ya everyone!
  Tiddly Inks has a fabulous and fun release right now called Sugar n' Spice!  Above are two examples and I loved them so much I did four cards with each new image!  First let's talk challenge!  This week at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog we are asking you to use Acrylic on your card - this could include shrinky dinks or even acrylic paint! Use your imagination!  I sort of cheated and used Acetate...I know it's not acrylic but honestly I did have a dark think - except shrinky dink material and I couldn't get anything I liked!  I also had a Birthday card to make for my 2 year old and Minnie's Gift is just perfect!
Isn't she just the cutest?  I love her and put her behind a little window!  I love the paper and chose it before I colored my image!
I used my nestables for the whole card!  My two year old could have cared less - she wanted presents!!!
But I do have to show you what hubby made for her!
He did this with cake mix and white frosting and ziplock bags!!!!  He's amazingly wonderful!
Ok, on to the new release. I'm going to be showing you cards all week featuring these sweet new Tiddly images!  But first I chose to use Sugar Angel and some fun Tim Holtz Paper I picked up for Halloween!
To check out all the new images please check out Tiddly Inks and Christy's blog (for a sale code) and a number of gorgeous samples!!
