Remind Me...(take 2)


*Yikes, I did it again and pre-scheduled this post too early. My apologies, and thank you for coming back twice.*
Remind Me...How old are you going to be? My oldest son says that to me a lot. It is almost like he is baiting me sometimes and others it is out of honest curiosity. I do remember thinking nine years ago that I was old enough and grown up enough to have a baby before he was born and then thinking that I was too young and didn't know what I was doing when we did bring him home!


Today is the last day of the Lil' Inker Designs January Release. Have you hopped along the past two days? So many amazing projects featuring this month's release! If you are following along with today's hop, you should have arrived from Judith's Blog. I once again have two projects today, the first one being a card featuring Snarky Lady I, a set featuring the Sugar Kissed Cottage Vintage images.


Lots of fun sayings in this set to go along with the gorgeous gal. I used the one that says: Remind me...How old are you pretending to be? I stamped the gal and colored her with markers, and then just added some patterned paper, May Arts Burlap String and a tiny paperclip.


This next card features Bunny Star, an adorable and petite set from the 2 Cute Ink line. I colored him with markers, fussy cut and added it to the card with a stamped sentiment on the Stitched Rectangles. I finished by adding some glossy accents to the star, ears and his cute little tail. Super easy, but I think super cute too!



I hope you liked this month's release and projects! As a reminder: There is a prize up for grabs too-one winner will be selected from comments lefts on one of the participant's blogs, so please be sure to let us know what you think! Please be sure to stop by the Lil' Inker Blog for additional details. Up next is the delightful Laura.

  10. Karen, thanks for sharing your story about your son. My son told me for years that I wasn't old until I hit 50...I guess I'm now considered old!!! Your cards are fabulous. I really like the layout on the first card. I like how you have the panels slightly off centered. It is really eye catching. Happy Wednesday!
