Tiddly Inks DT Call

Hello friends!  Sorry for my infrequent posts.  The last few months of 2014 were a bit hectic.  My youngest son had a collapsed lung in October which required a chest tube.  After 6 weeks, it collapsed again on December 3rd.  This time he had surgery and spent 13 days in the hospital.  Our Christmas tree was up and decorated just in the "Nick" of time, on Christmas Eve.  We had a lovely Christmas spent with my husband's family and I had all three of my son's home for Christmas, just the way I like it.  Now with the New Year and no health crisis' at hand I am ready to start crafting again.

Tiddly Inks is having a Design Team call and so I have decided to give it a try.  I wanted to join the previous call, but it was a good thing I did not, with my son's collapsed lung and all.  Today is the last day to enter.

Here is my card for the call.

I chose a digital stamp called Ducky Dance - Wryn.  I love the image and am already in the mood for Spring.  I used bright cheerful copic markers, gave her some striped leggings and layered her onto a card with some brads, and the perfect orange and yellow striped ribbon to finish the card.  The Thinking of You sentiment is from Ellie Says Be Happy clear stamp set.

Here are the Copics I used and a few prismacolor pencils to enhance some of the shadows.

Thank you Christy Croll for a chance to join a fun Design Team.  Good luck to everyone!  Some really fantastic entries!

Hugs and smiles,
