A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

You and Me Baby!

Hey all! I’m back with another post ……. I’m kinda getting the hang of it now in a smallish kinda way! 

Guess what though! There’s not a single, solitary candle in sight on this one (silently crying here) …… it was tough, but I held back!  That’s discipline for ya! ;o)

Anyhows, I had a wedding card to make and, previous to designing it, I noticed the newest challenge going on at Tiddly Inks so, I put my brain into gear and came up with this little design using the gorgeous ‘You and Me Baby’ couple from Tiddly Inks.


Aren’t they just an adorable little couple?  I can feel the love from here :)

I coloured the happy couple in promarkers and also the ivory background.  The beautiful background papers I got from my local craft store – I bought two sheets of 12” x 12” and actually wish I’d bought more!  The colour was a perfect salmon pink and, although you can’t really see it, the background has the word ‘LOVE’ written along it.  They were on her ‘bargain shelf’ so I reckon they’ll have been snatched up by now!!!  I tell you, that ‘local craft shop’ is probably a bit TOO local for my own good but, hey! Needs must!!!  :)


The flowers were again from Wild Orchid Crafts – I seriously can’t get enough of flowers ….. a bit like my candles ;) I used my Nellie heart die, glittered the edges and added three pearl pins from The Hobby House

I loved making this card! It’s such a clean, simple design but yet so elegant and, with the gorgeous little couple, you really can’t go wrong!

I shall be proudly entering this card into the following:

Tiddly Inks Challenge #94 - Make it like Asa

Happy Weekend Everyone!! Lots of hugs

    1. Thank you so much Cissy! I've tried to add 3 creations but, alas, after adding one it says the links is already there and I can't figure out how to link the other 2 :( I'd be so grateful if you could advise the best way to do this as I'd love to have them on view :)
      Big hugs, Tracey x

    2. Oh Tracey! I
      m so sorry I'm just now seeing this post! I did see 2 that you were able to get in 2. In order to have all 3 you must have 3 separate posts and link back the address of each individual post, not your blog. Like, http://candicraftcards/09/23/2012/you-and-me-baby/ (the address of the post). When you place your cursor over the post it shows up. Hope this helps and good luck!

    3. Hi Cissy, no worries and thank you for getting back to me :) I did work it out in the end and managed to get all 3 through. The 1st one, however, links back to my actual blog (my Redonkulous wedding couple/candle) Oops! I do like a challenge though - and working this out certainly gave me that hehe! Thanks again for your help, hugs, Tracey x

  3. Gorgeous card Tracey! Love the colours and how you coloured the image. the heart with the sentiment is really pretty! Thanks for joining us at the Tiddly Inks challenge and hope to see you again next challenge.
