March Challenge - Molly Month - Tiddly Inks

Hello :)

I'm back today with a card I put together using Molly My Sweet from Tiddly Inks which I coloured some time ago but only just got her on a card. 

It's Challenge time and this months theme is 'Molly' so all you need to do is choose your fav Molly and get creative! 

She really is so very sweet!

Unfortunately I didn't take note of the colours I used for Molly My Sweet, sorry.

I am giving this card to a good friend who always makes me laugh and is a true Sweetheart.

Thanks for stopping by

Celebrating Friendships with a hot cuppa! - Blog Hop


CONGRATULATIONS Elizabeth Elton and Paula Yeates!

Hi friends
One of my favourite past times with friends is sitting around having a cuppa and chatting. It’s hard to beat face to face interaction with a friend. You can read each other’s body language, laugh out loud and easily get stuck for hours drinking way too much coffee.
Sadly, many of my bestest friends live so far away from me that I don’t get the opportunity to sit across the table and laugh over a cuppa so instead I do what I do best and make them cards that will brighten their day.
So with that in mind, this month we are inspiring you with some gorgeous images illustrated by Krista Smith and a whole range of new chipboard designs relating to Friends, Coffee & Tea!

Please join us on the hop and be inspired for a chance to win one of two prizes.

Leave comments along the way as I will be picking a winner from two random posts. Winners will be announced and contacted Sunday 25th so get your hopping boots on!
