I had a blast and I got the chance to create 2 projects for today, both fabulously Inky! Not only did I create a project using Teary Eyed Lili for today's hop, but I also created a card for this weeks Inky Impressions Challenge! featuring a brand new digital image called Monsters Blowing Bubbles, isn't he just the cutest?!I unfortunately have a friend who lost her son recently and she is a big stamper who I plan on sending this card to, she needs a pick me up, and this sentiment is perfect because I have been thinking about her. I used this fun designer paper from Echo Park called Country Drive, it's sweet and girlie and I think works well with this sad and sweet Teary Eyed Lili.My next card featuring a brand new digital image called Monster Bubbles, isn't he just the cutest?! I think that not only is he perfect for Valentine's Day but he would be great for everyday fun too, I mean he is blowing bubbles! I used my Love Me designer paper from My Mind's Eye and paired it with Red, Pink and White which is this weeks Inky Impressions Challenge!I used a lot of dimension in this card with plenty of pearl accents plus a touch of lace heart trim, I think it all worked well together. Plus, if all that wasn't enough I added some Crystal Effects to his bubbles to give them some more dimension, and you can actually see it in this photo!Now on to the rest of today's hop.
