Welcome to the Tickled Pink Stamps Birthday Blog Hop,

What a month of previews, releases and giveaways Tickled Pink Stamps has had and now to top it all off a blog hop to go out with a BANG. To join the Pink Party of the year you can start HERE.... "please link to my blog" And WHY is this hop not to be missed? There is a major prize at the wind down of the party, by hopping along you have a chance to win EVERY stamp releases during the month of October, that is over 15 stamps, including all the images and sentiments from the first release. If they come in rubber and you want rubber over digi, then you can have rubber. If they only came out in digi then digi it is, it's all up to you and your liking. AND want to know something else? There are hidden candies hiding in within the hop.

If you have come from Debbie then your on the right party line.

Ok, so here is my creation, a trick or treat bag!!

I have used Frankie and Lylah from the Lil' Haunts collection and the sentiment on the tag and the pumpkin image from the Going Batty stamp set. I have used some ribbons I found in the stash and glittered all the edges of my papers. Not much else to say, I have not added too many embellishments as I wanted the images to be the focus, don't these two just look fabulous together :)

And here is a shot of my little helper modeling the bag. As I was trying to get some pics I noticed a little hand sneaking into the frame and trying to grab the bag, hehehe, too cute. Sigh, I can't believe my little bugs will be 2 and a half at the end of next month, where does the time go!!

Now your next party stop is Jane!!

Thank you for joining the Tickled Pink Stamps hop and have FUN.

Going batty at MDUC

Welcome to another week or wonderful challenges at Magnolia Down Under and this week we have a shooktacular one for you, it's Halloween inspired!! Now, don't panic if you don't have a Halloween stamp, your card could use any stamp and use Halloween colours (purple, black, orange, green, etc), or maybe include some candy on your card, like Tilda with her lolly pop, or those cute Magnolia candy papers... if you have any left, can you still buy that one?!
I was lucky enough to pick up this adorable bat Tilda AGES ago (but not in time for last Halloween!), and she is finally coming in handy. The background stamp is a c.c. designs stamp, I think, that I got from TPS. I really need more background stamps, they are such a great way to make your image pop! The sentiment and bat on the tag are from the going batty sentiment set also from TPS. The bats are buttons I had still from an earlier project, they are so cute, and the ribbon I sicked up at a craft show a while ago.
Everything has been coloured with my copics. Here is a close shot of the tag, the digital sentiment had been printed on acetate and I inked the edges a little to give it definition and popped it onto the card with a brad so it can move around a little.

Hope your Halloween is a spooktacular one, my kids are a bit too young this year but i hope next year we might be able to do something. A local park is having a twilight event (twilight as in early evening, not the movie, lol!) where kids can dress up and trick or treat and they are having a bbq (how aussie) and other fun Halloween stuff in a country that does not celebrate Halloween, hahaha!! So hopefully this years event is a huge success so we can take the boys next year! It sounds like so much fun.

Meet Birthday Cherrie

Yep, we have yet another preview for you over at TPS, her name is Cherrie and she is super cute... don't believe me, take a look for yourself... See, I told you so!
Not much to say about my card, I kept it pretty plain and simple as the image took up a lot of room and I did not want to end up overcrowding things, lol. So, these are some papers I dug out of a pile on my desk, I have glittered all my edges and added some crystal effects to the balloons and dug out a sweet little flower and button because I could not leave it totally bare.
So why not head on over to HERE... and see what all the fuss is about, and be sure and check back tomorrow for another sweet and delicious Cherrie preview!!

A Debalicious sketch to share

Welcome to another week at MDUC, and this challenge is a brilliant one, we have a sketch created by out very own Debbie P!! I loved this sketch and used it to finish a project I had been planning for quite a while, a box to keep my wedding tiara and jewellery in. Ta-Da! I was thrilled with how it came out. The box was one of those cardboard kraft ones I picked up in spotlight, I did think about painting it but I am going through such a kraft phase I thought it would be the perfect background. This Tilda and Edwin were actually stamped for me aaaaaages ago but the fabulous Kellie, I even coloured them up to go with these papers months and months ago and then thought I would save them and the paper until I have a brilliant idea for a card, then I decided they would look fabulous on the box, and then when I saw Deb's sketch I knew I had finally found my inspiration for my box top!! Don't you love it when a plan comes together!!
So... the paper, doilies and doohickey are all from Tickled Pink Stamps, where you can also choose from a huge selection of Magnolia stamps too! The flowers are from my stash and the crystals, ribbon and ric rak I picked up in spotlight... oh, and the rub on in the corner is from kaiser.
Anyways, bit of a waffle there about the box, sorry guys, I am off now to get my hair ready (I am typing this Saturday evening so I can schedule it) it's my hen's night tonight so I should go and attempt to pretty myself up, hahaha! I had my make up trial this morning to see how the make up would go over the day/night, then we were invited last minute to a 4th birthday party this morning, so I showed up looking particularly glamorous, lol, maybe I should have whacked the tiara in as well, just to complete the look!
Hmmm... 3 weeks until the big day, not really overly excited or nervous yet, I think I am more focused on getting everything organised, then I can really let myself go and totally freak out, bahahaha!! We are stuck on what song to play as we enter the reception, if anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it. I want to walk in to the new Pink song because it makes me laugh, but it really isn't a 'wedding' kind of song, I guess I just love the idea of a song celebrating all of us who are "wrong in all the right ways", it's so me :)

So... I thought I might also enter this little boxy into a couple of challenges...

Molly Mittens the adorable kitten

Welcome to day 2 of Tickled Pink's Molly Mittens previews. I absolutely LOVE this little kitty, she is just gorgeous!! I have coloured her up with my copics and used some old unloved fiskars papers I had in my stash (I love this dreamy shade of blue, I really don't know why I don't use these papers ore often) my MS doily and butterfly punches have also seen some love. I have also used lace and tassel ribbon from TPS and flowers from the stash. Oh yeah, it's an easel card. This actually ended up being my mothers birthday card, she loved it :) even I was pretty pleased with the way it came out.

For more gorgeous Molly Mittens creations check out the DT's cards HERE... you will be blown away!!

I am also entering this lovely little lady into a few challenges:
Creative inspirations - Birthday theme
Mad for markers - Colour in a digital image

Happy Birthday Brownie!!

Today is the birthday of our fabulous Pink Lady Kylie Brown, Happy Birthday baby, wish I could be there for a few drinks to help you celebrate.
Soooo... for your birthday viewing pleasure....

Lil Haunts - Vampire Lilith

Welcome to the first of out Lil Haunts previews!! Tonight we willo be introducing Vampire Lilith, she is so fabulous and after you have seen the amazing creations the Pink Ladies have created for your viewing pleasure HERE.. you will just have to have her!

So... Mr Camera was not being my friend today (or, and this is much more likely, my photography skills are just rubbish, LOL!) so I took 2 photos, with and without flash, so you can see some of my glimmer misting and details. I have made a small flower using the DP and black paper but as it is so dark it did not photograph well at all. I not really happy with this card, the mojo is AWOL again and I have a bit of a cold so I don't feel i have done this gorgeous image justice, oh well. I might pull it all apart and try again when I get a chance :)

Happy Birthday TPS, let's get the party started!!

We are so excited to show you all of the amazing new ranges this month. We have a bit of everything for everyone! The Pink Ladies have been working very hard behind the scenes to create some masterpieces for you to be inspired.
Lets get this party started with our first release - "Tickled Pink Birthday" by the very talented Heather Rolin. The Tickled Pink Birthday set is a very versatile set of sentiments and accessory stamps which can be used by themselves as you can see below, but also with Tickled Pink Stamps fantastic Lil Lolita range. So, I have been struggling a bit recently with a lack of mojo (and time) and really was not sure what I was going to do when inspiration struck, I decided to uses these little babies and make little gift tags, you can write all your usual 'to' & 'from' stuff on the back, and then just as I was finishing them off I thought to myself 'hey, these would make fabby little tags for a gift bag too!' So I ended up with one of each, don't you just love that tassel, it just adds that little something extra on the bag, it is also from TPS.

For some more fabulous works using this set make sure you head on over to HERE... and there might even be some prizes up for grabs :)

The set will be released 2 October at midnight (Australian Eastern Standard Time) as digi stamps. To snag yours, visit Tickled Pink Stamps store!
