Exciting news!

I've been dying to let this out of the bag for aaaaages and now I can tell you!  A few months ago I found Lil' Inker Designs and straight away fell in love with their cute stamps and dies - well they had a design team call as they have lots of plans in the pipeline for their 2 Cute Ink Line and was lucky enough to get on their Lil' Inker Designs Color Team!  So this week we are revealing the five new team members each day - and today is my day!

You can check out my reveal on the shop blog here!  But thought I'd show you my very first card using 2 Cute Ink Hamster Cupid...



Adorable image, huh?  I know he's a hamster but he could easily be a bear too, right?  I love him!  This is my wedding anniversary card to Steve but I couldn't show it to you on Monday until today!  As my regular visitors know, Steve doesn't appreciate my cardmaking, but he did love this!  Not too soppy, he said!  But still very sweet!  This cutie would be fab for any lovey dovey card, like Valentines, anniversary, engagement, wedding... And did I mention that the sentiment comes with it?  There are five matching sentiments in the set so there's something to match any lovey dovey occasion, lol!

And don't you love those stitched hearts?  These are from the Of The Heart dies set (which also comes with a matching die and sentiment stamp set here).  The papers are from the My Minds Eye Lime Twist Fly A Kite paper pad and I coloured him in with my Copic markers...

Hamster fur: E31, E33, E35, E37
Ears and cheeks: R20, E22
Hearts: R22, R27

You can check out the rest of the new Lil' Inker Designs Color Team here!  You will want to check out each new DT blog during the week as there's a prize along the hop this week. That's right! One of the 5 new team member's blogs is the secret prize blog...so leave a comment for each of the ladies this week to be sure you're in the running for the secret prize.... more on the actual prize as our week progresses!!

Thanks for visiting and I will be around to visit you all later today!




I am entering my card into the following challenges:
