Day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs new release hop!



It's day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs hop showcasing the new stamp sets by Sugar Kissed Cottage designer Lindsey Amschler and dies over a three day blog hop!  Here is my project today using the very cute Eat Dessert First...

These girls were such a pleasure to colour in!  I matched them up with My Minds Eye Follow Your Heart papers, finished off with some Stampin' Up ribbon.





For my second project I created this birthday card using the very cute Mini Party die set and matching stamps...





I kept the design simple and used papers from the Piggy Tale Ba Ba Black Sheep collection.  I am going to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge for "what are you famous for?" (CAS cards!)

Okay, so back to the hop!  You should have come here from Lindsey and you now need to hop off to the store here to see the new goodies!  I hope you can join along with the hop - there are prizes to be won!  The more you comment, the better your chance of winning!  We'll be giving away prizes for two $10 store credits!

See you tomorrow with day 3 of our hop!
