Welcome Fall with a Tiddly Inks Fairy...

Hi all... I don't know about you, but I am just so excited about Fall!  Not only because it's Halloween Season, but I love the cool crisp air.  It's the perfect time to snuggle on the couch with your loved ones... for me the little monster that runs around the house yelling "mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy!"  He says it so much I ignore him that he finally gets frustrated and says "Mommy!  Mommmmmy... CHICA!"  It's his second fall and that also means his birthday is approaching!  Woot woot!

The Fall colors around here are beautiful!  I can't wait to share pictures with you all... in the meantime I have created a card that remind me of my home and surroundings... how I picture my neighborhood if it were in Fantasy mode.  This cute little Fairy was just perfect to help me bring out the Fall in my card.  She actually has stars in her hair, and is reaching for stars instead of the leaves, but I gave it the Fall twist!

You can find this Fairy and many more wonderful images at!  But you can win an awesome Gift Certificate by participating in our challenge over at Tiddly Inks Challenge blog!  What more can ya ask for right?  I hope you enjoy my card and don't forget to give the DT some lovin' they have done a marvelous job as usual!

Gearing up for School....

Tiddly Inks style!  Woot woot... check out this adorable new image from Tiddly Inks!  I loved making her up as I would see my kid... just different, with her own style!  I made this into a book mark for my little Bookworm!  Rio always has her nose in books, so this image was perfect for her.  She would love to have her hair blue like that too!
