Tiddly Inks - Molly Celebrates.

Well I didn't make the Tiddly Inks DT this time around, but there were lots of fabulous entries that also didn't make the grade so I'm in good company lol, and I did make the top 10 which was nice to know. I'll apply next time providing commitments allow.
You can check out the final picks here.

Anyway, I'm still happy I rediscovered my love of these stamps and I'm sharing another Molly today. This is Molly Celebrates and I decided to go for a softer look with this since I've been using a lot of brighter colours recently. Oh and lilac hair because....well why not?!

I thought I would like to give her dress a pattern too, so I paper pieced it, I think the floral dress looks cute.

I used a Martha Stewart punch to cut my lady edges on the layers, and an MFT Stitched Rectangle die to cut out Molly. Papers are Maja, this collection is now unavailable and it's pretty much the last of my stash *sob*. The sentiment is one from a set I bought ages ago from Lili of the Valley.
Cheesecloth, ribbon, FB pearls, and the pearl & diamante embellishment on the bow are all from
The Ribbon Girl and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The stitching on the card is done by hand with some top stitch thread.

Right that's all from me, have to dash I have visitors coming, but I should have something to share with you tomorrow.

Have fun and I'll see you soon!


  1. Really gorgeous card. Love all embellishments. Great job!

  2. Just beautiful, every meticulous touch from ribbon, die cuts, your fab stitching and design papers! xxx

  3. Such a beautiful card and her hair looks amazing, I love the colours! Sorry that you didn't make the DT this time.

  4. Delightful card, Linda! Love the purple hair!

  5. Absolutely gorgeous card! I know I don't comment ( have sooo many already to comment on !) but I just had to. I can't believe they didn't pick you for the DT (stamping foot and pouting :D), your cards are consistently fabulous. Their loss, we love your cards!! Debra x

    1. Aww thank you Debra. I totally feel you on the commenting. I work full time so I have a very limited window when it comes to commenting, I do visit, but I don't comment on too many just because of time constraints. Thank you so much for your support, of course I was disappointed, but I've learned to be pragmatic when it comes to DTs as you can never tell what they are looking for. Obviously I didn't fit the bill this time, next time it could be different, but thank you for your lovely words, they did make me feel better! :) xx

    2. I'm glad to have helped a little :). Debra x

  6. This is very pretty Linda, lovely shades of lilac and pink and an adorable image too. Sorry your DT tryout wasn't successful this time though.

  7. Aw, that's a shame about the DT call but I know they have an enormous number of entries from many talented crafters so I reckon a top 10 spot is a huge achievement that you can be very proud of :-) Definitely enter again next time; if you don't try it will never have the right attitude there.
    At least you got to play with some fab images and I love the soft pastels you chose for this Molly image, and her paper pieced skirt is adorable! I think I only have scraps of that DP left was so beautiful...*sigh*
    Big hugs, Kat xx

  8. an unclear decision.... about not choosing you to the DT... The runner-ups are better than most of the TOP5. Well, I am sure you are not VERY upset, because like all of us, YOU know that your cards are amazing!


  9. Making top 10 is Awesome there were a lot of entries! Love the paper piecing on her dress works so well with your Beautiful Card!
