Time to hatch Brennan!!!!!!

Well the first post of today is dedicated to something very special! We are here today to celebrate the soon to come birth of Brennan, whose mom is our dear fellow Tiddly Inks team member Melissa. Melissa has been on the Tiddly Inks team since close to the beginning and although she has had to take some time off to deliver Brennan, we want her to know she is missed and that we are excited Brennan is going to be here REAL SOON (hear that Brennan). Please join us in celebrating this happy occasion by hopping along...or even better, by linking your own card to say hi to Melissa.

My card is shown below but if you want to see some more delightful cards, all the details for the blog hop can be found on Tiddlyinks Challenge blog and there is a LINKY tool for you to add your card there as well. We kept this blog hop simple....all the links will open in a new window from Christy's blog.

Come on over to the Tiddly Ink Challenge blog to celebrate this happy birth and please join in with your own card. There will be a random winner selected from those who link their own card."

Now as for card details I used Tiddly Inks Treasured Friend printed on Curious Metallics Cryogen White paper. Colored with: Copics for the main image and Derwent Watercolor pencils for the faint background shading.

Copics used: C3,C5, BG10 ,BG34 ,BG09, YR12, YR04, YR07, YG03, YG07, G07

The image and papers were highlighted using Stickles Glitter glue in Orange Peel, Firefly and Frosted Lace,

The papers used were My Minds Eye Twinkle Twinkle Little Boy and Bazzil Basic's "Candy Bar".  The Twinkle paper is special to me because I made the first layout for my youngest son out of it.

I hope Melissa and the rest of you enjoy my card!  And Melissa I hope you get to meet your little man very soon!!!!!  Wishing you a safe, QUICK  and soon delivery!!!!!!  TIME TO HATCH BRENNAN the world is waiting to meet you!
