Tiddly Inks 2 Year Anniversary - Frame The Moment

Good morning all you lovelies how are you all? Well I've still had no time to craft yet but last month the uber talented Melissa & Christy asked if I would be a special guest for their special 2 year Tiddly Inks Anniversary......well smack me down with a wet fish.............I was sooooooo shocked & immediately said YESSSSSS!!!
My goodness I've seriously become addicted to those gorgeous Tiddly Inker images & try my darnest to join in every challenge...........& cry on the ones I miss boo hoo :0(
So the uber talented Christy is celebrating 2 years of Tiddly Inks & her uber talented design team have been creating lots of inspiration for us all why not pop on over to the challenge blog here to find out all the details & see all the fabulous creations from the special guests.
The theme we were given was 'Frame The Moment' now we all have LOTS of those dont we. 
Here's my card I made especially for this theme.........WARNING PHOTO HEAVY.
I used the image 'You & Me'..............you dont want to know how long it took me to choose an image, they are all so darn yummy!!!

Paper & pearls are from My Crafty Heart. The paper is the new Prima 'En Francais' love this paper!!
The twill sentiment is from Crafts & Me.

Butterfly is from my stash & I cant remember where I would have initially got it from but they really are so gorgeous IRL.

Added some muslin fabric from my fabric stash.

The love sentiment is a Tim Holtz ticket & the film strip I found an image on google & printed it off onto acetate & inked it with vintage photo to darken it a little.

The gorgeous image I coloured with Copics & I found another film image on google enlarged it & again printed that onto acetate & then attached it on top of the image. This image I think is perfect for weddings, anniversaries or any kind of love themed creation. What better moment to frame than a wedding day, so its based on that but for maybe an anniversary.

I have to say I really enjoyed making this card last month it all just fell together & the image was a sheer joy to colour & one I will use many times..........I love how they look sooooooo in love.....
You can of course get this image & many many more fabulous images from Tiddly Inks......there are also new images being added every day this week including freebies.........now we all love freebies. Christy also releases new images every Tuesday which are always gorgeous.

So why not head over to here to check out all the details & there are prizes up for grabs.
May I say a MAHOOSIVE thank you to Christy & Melissa for inviting me to be part of this fabulous moment it was such an honour mmwah xoxoxox

An update on Natalie for my lovely friends she is a little bit better & fingers crossed has managed to escape being admitted to hospital. She is still really poorly but any improvement is good & she has still been able to give us her gorgeous smiles.........I loves my angel so much that lassy is a fighter I tell ya, my little hero.
Thank you so much for your lovely messages & get well wishes for her it really did mean sooooooooo much, I loves ya all mmwah xoxox

Thank you for stopping by & I will try to get around to seeing you all today at some point
xoxoxoxoxo
