GRAND OPENING & BLOG HOP!

NOTE: This post will stay at the top until the end of our Blog Hop, Friday 12th. Please scroll down for newer posts. Thanks! :)
Woohoo...the day has finally come!! Inky Impressions is opening it's doors today!! What better way to celebrate than with a BLOG HOP!!

If you didn't start the blog hop at the beginning, then you will want to head back to Nicole's Blog so you do not miss anything. Be sure to follow the blog hop all the way to the end, leaving a comment on each blog for a chance to win some yummy blog candy! (picture of candy at the end of my post) And now for my first reveal:

Happy July Birthday!!

This is "LiLi" designed after Nicole's youngest daughter, and this stamp is called "Happy Spring LiLi" -- You should have come here from Kristen's blog in which she showcases this same stamp in it's entirety (the way it's "suppose" to look *wink*) - so I thought I'd show you what else you can do with it!! I've cropped out the spring banner with scotch tape and added a pinwheel and balloons! She reminds me so much of my youngest daughter Maddy below: ...of course she's squinting from the sun, but she normally has big blue eyes too! :)
And my next card is made with "LiLi's Chicks"

Hoping for... Fun Surprises!

I computer generated the sentiment: "Hoping your special day is full of fun surprises!...Happy Birthday" -- there's lots of sayings you could add to this cutie! Stay tuned...I've got some really fun inky projects to show you next Wednesday! ;)

Here's a little peek at what's waiting for one lucky blog hopper!! HAVE FUN!!! :)
Wait until you see these fabulous stamps up close and personal, the CUTE factor is off the charts on design alone! But it's even better because the quality & detail is exceptional as each stamp is "EXTRA deep etched" on quality red rubber for a crisp, clean impression every time!

***Next head over to Inspirational Inkette Maria to see what fabulous inspiration she has for you! xXx
