And a freebie.....Christmas is coming soon, so I am adding a freebie little snowman for your happy card making.  Click on the snowman below and save the JPG.
Now to properly share this freebie, please do NOT add it to Pintrest without the watermark. Please, I am begging you. :)

Add the watermarked version and then link it to this blog post. The purpose is to help me advertise the shop and if people like the freebie, they may like something else. If the image is improperly linked, it leads people to believe it is without copyright or that you can just share any image you like. A freebie still belongs to me---I am simply letting lots of  you borrow it. :) So please, link it properly...send your happy peeps back to my site so everyone is happy, including me. :)

New Digital Stamp - Cluckers (cute farm chickens)

I have the distinct privelege of living in the country where we can have cows and chickens and ducks. The chickens are quite hilarious and I get a kick out of watching them wander and do chickeny things---maybe it is just funny to me, but anyway...LOL Meet a few of my chickens
he casts a long shadow....

a clucking party

yes, I am the big bad dad

hey ya chickies...whatcha doing?

I have been wanting to draw them for a while---actually some of my first doodles were of chickens....hehee---so I doodled some new ones yesterday and I like how they turned out. :)

Meet the Cluckers - 
All 4 stamps are in a zip file for $2.00
Listing in the shop is HERE

I didn't add any sentiments, but here some good ones by Melissa and Jeanne if you want to make your own. 

Just chicken in
What the cluck?
I’m feeling clucky
Heard you flew the coop
Just a little chick chat
You're an egg-cellent friend
Hey chicky

Happy 4th and a new Salty Kisses

Happy Fourth of July all my US friends! :)  And Happy Thursday everyone else!! :)

Did you see the DT call we are having?? It is gonna be an interesting month visiting your lovely creations and getting inspired. I hope even if you aren't trying out that you have fun having an informal blog hop as new people add links.

And I have said that I am creating new images and, last week, I submitted 9 new images for manufacturing in clear stamps----so in a few weeks I will have 9 new clear (and digital) sets, I hope. :) I can't wait to show them off as the DT likes them and that is always a good sign in my book. :) 

One of them is already a digital stamp, Salty Kisses. However for the next release, I made her a matching friend/mermaid (she is still a secret), but that one had MUCH better hair, so I had to go back and re-do Salty Kisses---I think she is much improved. Check out the new version below or HERE.  She now has extras....hehe

If you have already purchased her, no need to buy it again. Just log in to your shop account (even guests get a password) and download the image again. I have directions on the blog HERE  (or click on the picture below) if you haven't done that before.   The older version is now considered retired, so switch to this one, pretty please.


And if all fails, just email me and I will send it to you by email. :)

Have a great day!!

Tiddly Inks Design Team Call!!!!

Hi ya everyone!  We are doing something a bit special here at Tiddly Inks. Typically, we hand pick members for our design team as members move on, but to shake things up a bit, we have decided to hold a DESIGN TEAM CALL!!! We know there is talent out there that we might miss and we don't want to miss meeting you all!

How do you apply? 
Simple. Create a special card just for this DT call using your FAVORITE Tiddly Inks image.  Don't have a favorite and love them all? Include any T. Inks image on your card--it can be a digital stamp or a clear stamp (don't forget the digital papers too).

Then link up your creation to the linky below and we will come and visit your blog.  Make sure to write up your post as if you are a Tiddly member, linking your image to the store.

What do we look for in a team member at Tiddly Inks?

Besides being a friendly crafter, we would expect that you:
  • lead with your own sense of style that comes through in your posts and photographs
  • have a blog to showcase your creations, and be able to post one Tiddly Inks creation a week.  Tiddly Inks usually has multiple releases each month, so often you will create more projects, but you can use those for some of your posts.
  • be reliable and on-time with creations and commenting on challenge entries. However, this is a very laid back group and we don't want you too stressed out so we have calendars and split duties to make it easier for everyone to meet these obligations.
  • maintain integrity around digital images. That means NO sharing and NO pinning of unwatermarked images. 
  • maintain a kind approach to commenting and participating with other bloggers---no drama :)  
  • are selective and not on "too many" design teams.

What do you get in return?

We know that creating a card a week is only done as a labor of love, but we want it to be worthwhile too, so we offer:
  • A great group of ladies to socialize with and be inspired by. This may be the best part of being on a team of the sweetest crafters around---hands down!
  • Access to the entire store at Tiddly Inks for your term.  Any digital image, paper or sentiment is yours to use.  Most of Christy's images are drawn digitally even if they aren't in the store that way and she provides them for us.  Sometimes, you will receive clear stamps if quantity and shipping allows it.  
  • An opportunity to be showcased time after time on the Tiddly Inks blog and challenge blog with links to your creative place---you will meet new folks for sure.

If you are interested, link up your fabulous creation below.  We will leave the DT call open for the month of July.  The linky will close August 1st at 12am CST.

Feel free to share this badge so that your best friend can enter too....hmmm, yeah, go ahead and post it love her and aren't worried about a friendly competition.  Maybe we get to pick you both!!! :)

The good news is that we need several new members so there is room for more than a few selections---which is good news for us as we know it will be hard to narrow down the field.

Good luck and we can't wait to meet you when you link up.

EDIT: Some have asked if they can submit more than one card---yes, if you like, but it isn't necessary to post more than one card to be qualified. 

Also if you Facebook, please share your creation in the Tiddly Inks Fan page--
