Happy Birthday Christy!!! Welcome to Tiddly Trivia Post #1

***HINTS on our FACEBOOK Page right HERE***
(special thanks to DT member Wendy for coloring Wryn in the badge above)

Welcome everyone to our BIG Birthday Celebration!  Melissa here and as you have heard Christy Croll (owner and designer of Tiddly Inks) is having a birthday today and the Design Team wanted to celebrate with some gorgeous inspiration and prizes!

Since today is all about Christy we'll be having a special Tiddly Ink Trivia centered around Christy!!!  What's up for grabs?? Glad you asked FIVE $5 gift certificates to Tiddly Inks!  You answer a question correctly and your name will be entered into a random drawing for one of the $5 gift certificates!

This is how today will work:  I have three posts all set to go live throughout the day - this is the first.  In each post you will see some fabulous Design Team creations and see one or two Tiddly Trivia questions that Christy has answered for us!  In the comments section wish Christy a Happy Birthday, leave some love for the Tiddly Inkers and also answer the question/questions.  Your answer has to be submitted before 12am CST on Saturday, March 30th.  From the correct answers, I will draw a random winner and announce that winner on Sunday, March 31st.  This way those that can't get to the computer right away will still have a chance of joining in the celebration!

Now before I get to the first question let's check out some SPECIAL birthday cards that were created from the heart by our FABULOUS Tiddly Design Team to wish Christy a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!



Beautiful right?  Make sure to check out the next post that will arrive in a few hours to see the GORGEOUS inspiration.

Now, don't forget to answer this first question:
  • What was the first Tiddly Ink image Christy created?  (I know that's a tough one but take a guess and make sure it's the first TIDDLY INK image!!)

Happy Birthday Christy, I hope you have a fabulous day. Thanks for your ongoing wonderful work creating such fabulous Tiddly Images for us to enjoy. I think the first tiddly image was Super Stamper.

Happy Birthday Christy!
I love your Tiddly images! They are so cute! I found your company about a year ago and now I am addicted to your designs! :)
i really don't know the answer to the first question but after reading your blog and searching on-line I found for myself that you first started at PCP forum, and let me guess maybe Kiki the dog was your first image?
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful art with us! :)

Christy/Tiddly Inks said...

Ahhhh, thanks guys....I am totally touched by all the love. :)

The cards are absolutely beautiful. :)

I will give you a hint on the first images...they were sold in my Etsy shop......I don't know if you can still search sold items on Etsy, but the shop is still there, if empty...LOL

I hope everyone has a wonderful day...mine is off to a great start with all this love. Thank you and what a nice surprise to wake up to.

Thanks Melissa for a very thoughtful way to help me celebrate. :)
XOXO

Karen said...

Sorry think my fingers got over excited there... rofl ... I meant to put "plumping for" in the message above... hope I gave you a chuckle.xx

Brandy said...

Happy Birthday Christy!!! I hope you have a fabulous day !

I am also going to go with Heartfelt Cat as your first image.

Deirdre said...

I am guessing "Meow" - New Kitty was one of the first images that Christy drew.

Christy - wishing you a wonderful birthday my Aries bud! Hugs, Deirdre

Ellie said...

I think it's "You're Purrffeecctt".

Happy Birthday Christy!!

Heidi Brawley said...

grandmabonnie said...

Sure don't know the answer to this one, but i can say how i found Tiddly Inks..it wasn't a rubber stamp which i figure came before digital? I saw someone's beautiful card with Donna and her wagon...and searched the internet until i found the image...

grandmabonnie said...

Shoot, i also wanted to say. Happy, Happy Birthday Christy..hope you are having a super great day!!!

vee m. said...

♪~♫~Happy Birthday to Christy!~♫~♪

Great Job DT! I love, love, love the cards!

First image? Hmmm...that's a tough one. I'm probably wrong, but I'll guess anyways. Birds of a Feather. Yup, that's my guess, and I'm sticking to it, LOL.

LauraW said...

Happy Birthday Christy (and many more to come!) :) Your DT is fab-u-lous! Seriously talented bunch of ladies!
According to your feedback the first tiddly ink image was Texas Proud? That seemed to be the first on that was offered without a card....

Happy Celebrating Christy!

Dana said...

Happy birthday Christy. I am a HUGE fan of your images. Love them all and wish I had the time to color them all day long. Wouldn't that be awesome?! LOL Many wishes for a great day and many more to come.

Hugs

This time my guess is Peek-A-Boo.

Becki said...

Becki said...

OK, I give up at You're Purrrfect.

Karen said...

Okay I just peeked at the FB hint and I'm changing my guess to a more educated one... lol..

I revisited Etsy too (it was no hardship I love looking at all of those images!! Hehehe.. and I needed a break from packing all of our boxes. Phew!)

Carly said...

Happy Birthday to youuuuuuuu!

Wow what sensational creations by the DT .... they must be super excited about your Birthday too.

I remember when you had the old store site and you had a little creature called Kitty .... I think this was one of your fist ones ... but I'm not sure which particular one.

Have a wonderful Birthday celebration ... we love you:)

Mandi said...

Happy Birthday Christy! I hope your day is wonderful. Nice job DT on such great creations! Fabulous!

As for the first image I have no idea, but I've been a fan since you started with Stamping Bella and I have several rubber stamps of yours I purchased through there. I was definitely over the moon though when I found out quite a while ago you also started doing digi stamps. :) Love the things you come up with.

Mary M. said...

Is it Cookie Bugg? Happy Birthday.

~ Barb said...

I going with Cookie Bugg thanks to FB too. Happy Birthday, I am loving all the new realeases! And Wryn makes the perfect birthday cards, thanks to the DT for their inspiration!

Leanne said...

Happy Birthday Christy!! Hope you're soaking up some sun and enjoying a cold drink or two or three... hehehe...
Thanks for creating such wonderful characters for us to play with. Cheeers to many more!! (Birthdays and characters, lol)

As to the trivia question, I'm gonna say You are a doll.

Thanks ladies for the wonderful inspirations!!

Kim Swenson said...

Cookie Bugg. I still need to color her. She is so cute.

grandmabonnie said...

Been racking my brain all day trying to remember where i saw the first Tiddly Ink image (now i know it's not the first image Christy created) but i did a google search and it showed up in the images...this is why i started buying Tiddy Ink images...up until i stumbled on this card, i had no idea Tiddly existed..here is her link, maybe you all know her?

Paula Gale said...

Hiya

great Birthday treat for Christy -
At first, I thought it must be one of the Lilly Bean images, but then read your clue - I now think it's Cokkie Bugg and know that this one has been around for sometime now - but doesn't look dated or old - and to a fresh pair of eyes is adorable!!!

"happy Birthday again Christy!!!"

Off to see the next question now.

Crafting Vicky said...

I would guess that it's Cookie bugg and extras. It was really cute ;)

Denise C said...

Happy Birthday Christy! Your DT made some fantastic cards. Love them! My guess for the first question is Cookie Bugg.
