Lil' Inkers Designers Mini Release Blog Hop



Hi there!  Hopefully you have just arrived from Nichol's blog!  What amazing inspiration on this blog hop!   When we were away at our crafty weekend last month, we were so lucky to have several stamp companies donate goodies for all of us!  Laura of Lil' Inkers was so generous and gave us all a new stamp and now we all get to play along with a mini release blog hop!  The stamps are absolutely stunning so I decided to play along with the stamp twice.

First up...a bright and cheering card using a variety of Zig markers.  Certainly there to brighter your day!
And a second one that is softer and subtle.  Love the combination of pink and gold together.

Be sure to leave a comment here and hop on over the Lil' Inkers blog for a full list of participants.  Comment on any of the blog  hop participants and you're eligible to win a price (two winners for one sentiment stamp and one winner to receive the cover plate and angel pets goodies!).  Thank you so much for your generosity Laura!

And up next is the talented Lisa Henke!  Be sure to hop along to her blog to continue to be inspired!
