Lil’ Inker February Hop, Day two –
Lot’s of fun going on here, especially if you are
joining the entire hop.
If so, you’ve made your way here from Laura’s blog,
& next you’ll head on over to Alyssa’s little creative haven.

Honestly, I had a ball working with this new product.
Between the stamps and the die images, I can’t seem to go wrong!

Today I made a tag, super simple again:

Here’s the new product I used on this gift tag:

FebruAry Hop: Some Lil’ Inker Lovin’.

Here we are hoppin’ again… you’ve made you way from Laura’s blog,
Next you’ll head to Alyssa’s blog for some stunning inspiration.

Valentine’s Day always sneaks up on me.
It’s like I’m still recovering from Christmas, my birthday & New Years.
Then there was a family vacation to Disneyland & L.A. last week.
Wednesday is my son’s 14th birthday, Saturday is my 23rd wedding Anniversary.
Let’s just say that blessings come one right after another as of late. 🙂

Because of my lack of time…. I’m SOOOO glad for Lil’ Inker’s mad skilz….
& our frequent hops involving darling new product.
February Blog Hop Graphic Laura has come up with some supa’-darling dies and stamps
that make card making so easy. I mean really easy.

This card involves three card stocks, two dies, one stamp and two inks.
The ease of creation and balance lies in the fact that I repeated the colors:

Our home is filled with Christmas spirit,
and here I am with a chipper V-Day card.
Go figure.

You’ve made your way here from Laura’s Blog if you are following hop order.

My cute card:

LIDHopDec2013LoveCard (1 of 3)

It’s a simple card, I let Lil’ Inker stamps and dies do the work for me.
Oh, and a little glitter. 🙂

LIDHopDec2013LoveCard (2 of 3)

I used the little hearts that popped out from the die.
They are shaped just like the little hearts in the stamps.
Excellent coordination factor.
