tiddly inks challenge #72

Hi! I am still relishing in the fact that I am able to cook meals and do laundry and get out of bed and not be cold. Losing power this time around affected so many of us. Everyone is going out and buying generators and stocking up on batteries. Through this I realize that my survival skills are bad. No power means finding a restaurant and hotel. I need to toughen up and be able to rough it.

So the month of November at Tiddly Inks is anything goes. And as December approaches and  my need to prep for Christmas intensifies, I decided that this week I would use a TI image to make my first day of my advent calender.

I used Peachy Pixie from the rubber TI stamps over at Stamping Bella. I have been avoiding using my digis lately because my printer is not working right. Thank goodness that I have these stamps : ) I colored her in Copics and added some Stickles. Then I punched out 2 little birdies and used Liquid Pearls. The doilly is a Memory Box die that I colored with Inka Gold (the lace). The box is made out of some cardstock that I haven't used in several years. So I gessoed it and painted it. And  I used some Maya Road stamps on it with some Archival Ink. I added some ribbon and the border is a MS punch. The number 1 is done up with Liquid Pearls and Stickles. It measures out to be 3 x 4.5x1 inches. I am so proud that I used something that has been hoarding.

Have a great weekend!! I will be busy trying to get the rest of my boxes made.
