A Bright Day

Hi everyone!! I hope you are enjoying the Lil' Inker Designs blog hop so far!  If you haven't visited all of the blogs yet, be sure to start here and comment on the blogs along the way as there are several prizes up for grabs!!

Today is a VERY SPECIAL day as it is my son's 9th birthday! It is so hard to believe that he can be that old already!  He is such a great kid.  Sweet.  Tender-hearted.  Thoughtful.  He loves to tell stories and is SO CREATIVE!  Happy birthday kiddo!! I love you!!

Here's a picture of him that I recently took.

And just because I can't resist, here is one of both of the kids!

Today I wanted to share another card I made using Lil' Inker's Rainbows & Clouds set.  This is similar in style to the card I shared here.

Hopefully the message of the card speaks for itself!

I wanted to share a closeup of the fabulous clouds!  I just LOVE the detail on these dies!! LOVE!!  You could probably say that I'm a little addicted to clouds! I love to mix and match all kinds of clouds together and I think it is SO fun to mix patterns/colors of clouds too!

The font in this set is super fun!  I love how the sizes are mixed too!  I added a little bit of yellow "sunshine" peeking behind the clouds and also wrapped some Pink Sorbet twine from The Twinery around the card layers.  I love how it adds just a small accent but a nice punch of color!

If you haven't purchased this set yet, I would encourage you to do so!  The rainbows are SO versatile and so are the clouds. PLUS, they are all PERFECT for something us papercrafters are famous for...using up our scraps! 

Also, did you know that Lil' Inker Designs (LID) has a flickr gallery where you can see projects made using these stamps and dies?  We'd LOVE to see your creations too, so please upload them!  You can also see Lil' Inker projects on Splitcoast Stampers too!  If you upload, use keyword/tag "LID" so we can all easily find your projects! 

I hope you are all doing well!! Thank you so much for stopping by!! And, don't forget, if you haven't visited the Lil' Inker Blog Hop, you have a few more days to comment to be eligible for prizes!
