Lil' Inker Designs Birthday


Happy Birthday, friend!
May today's coffee be strong
and the day inspired.
~A random birthday haiku found on the good ol' internet


It's Lil' Inker Designs Third Birthday and we are celebrating with a hop and challenge! You should have arrived from Jen Carter's Blog!


I've got two cards in celebration of their birthday. The first card features the newest stamp set Snarky Sentiment (being released now!) as well as the Pieced Chevron Cover Plate Die, Notebook Die and Flags and Tags Dies. The second card is inspired by the inspiration photo, and features the Balloon Dies and Balloon Builders Stamp Set.


Lil' Inkers is letting you join in on the fun too! Participate in the challenge-details are found on the Lil' Inker Blog. There will be a $50 grand prize (chosen randomly) and one free Snarky Sentiment stamp set will be given out as a prize for every 10 participants (also chosen randomly). Snarky Sentiments will be available for sale at a reduced price of $10 beginning today and lasting until the September Release when they will be available at regular $15 price. There will also be two $10 store credit honorable mention winners chosen by Laura from all the entries! Laura is also having a sale! Gotta check out the store blog for more details!

 
So your next stop on the celebration hop is Sarah!
