Tiddly Inks - Throwback Thursday

Good morning everyone, Happy August!  That's right, today is August 1!  Hard to believe, isn't it!  I keep asking Father Time to slow down the days a little bit but he just keeps on rushing them along!  Before we know it September will roll around, and then fall, and geesh, it will be snowing.  My plans for August, as much family time as I can get, my crafts, of course, and last, but certainly not least, getting my classroom ready for a new class this fall.  There is so much to do before a new class comes in each year and I like to take my time in August getting everything ready so I will be fully prepared when they arrive.  The more prepared I am the less nervous I am.  Yup, that's tight, teachers get nervous about meeting a new group of kids as well!

Today is Throwback Thursday at Tiddly Inks and I am sharing with you a project using the Tiddly Inks image, Gossmere.  An older of the Tiddly Inks images but just as fabulous!  On my card also are paper flowers that I made from my patterned papers.  I am trying to get better at making these beautiful style flowers as I am always so jealous of how gorgeous they look on the cards of others.  Much more practice needed, but I am getting there.

Materials Used:
Copic Markers
MS Circle Creator Punch
Cherry Lynn Gardenia Strip
Cheery Lynn Small Flourish die
Spellbinder's Rose Creations
Spellbinder's Circle and Scalloped Circle dies
SU Handsome Hunter Stamp pad

Enjoy the rest of your Thursday and this first day of August!
