Lil' Inker Designs Kick Off Hop by ag designs

Today is the first ever,
Lil' Inker
Designs Design Team Blog Hop!

So many firsts to celebrate!
It's MY first Blog Hop, and even better than THAT this was the first time Laura and I got to spend some time together (without kids) and CRAFT things allll day!
One of the best times I have had in a while I MUST say.


So here is my first card creation.
It was the first time I got to see and
use the actual Rainbow & Clouds dies and sentiments. Shocking I know, but most of the work Laura and I do together is virtual. This was just so fun to get my hands on these dies, stamps, paper and inks! 



It has been wayyyy too long. Just hope I get to  rummage through Laura's spectacular craft room again soon!
hint hint :)


Then just because I couldn't pass up the chance to, I did a quick card using some gorgeous paper and the Pinwheel Die!














Now for some
business...

these are some designs for Lil' Inker Designs
Products that I have created.
Browse and Click to go over and get
them for yourselves! :)


 

















I know I'm being redundant but this was just such a fun way to use all the things the Design Team will be using and take my part in the Blog Hop!

Please make sure you leave a comment on my blog because we are giving away some pretty terrific prizes!
The deadline for commenting is 11:59pm EST, Sunday, August 14th.

Lastly Hop your way over to Alicia Thelin's Blog to continue the Design Team Hop....

enjoy :)
