SURPRISE!!!!!! Celebrating Laura's Birthday & 6 years of LID!!

We are doing a SURPRISE blog hop and sharing our favorite LID cards to celebrate Laura's birthday and the 6th anniversary of LID!!!!


So it has been SIX years since Laura contacted me on Facebook. She wanted to make some notched tag dies that she couldn't find in the market all those years ago. She remembered from HIGH SCHOOL, yes high school, that I was an artist at heart. Laura asked me if with my graphic designer skills I thought I could make what she was looking for. I said YES! 

This was Laura's first mention of our new venture all the way back in 2010.

"So, some exciting news to share....I have partnered up with a friend from high school, Ariana Grant, who is a full-time professional graphics designer. Together, we are getting ready to release our first die and coordinating stamp set that I think you are going to FLIP over!! As I write this post (Tuesday night), I have just finished experimenting with the stamp set as the sample JUST arrived via UPS a few hours ago and I have to say I am not only proud but tickled pink to be able to share this with you VERY soon!!! I encourage you to follow my blog. Not only would it make my day, but I guarantee you are not going to want to miss this first release!! 

Here are some of the first images of our ORIGINAL Sentiment Flags - Stamps & die in action!!!

From 2010...

LID has come a long way baby! To 2016...

Now as for my girl's BIRTHDAY!
