Inky Blog Hop!

Last month, when I was creating samples for our store board program, some of the images I used were from 11037MC Bunny #2 Clear Set:


In particular, I had a lot of fun making a card using the bunny on the bottom (which is the same as 0728H Sm. Givin' A Squeeze in the wood mounted version).

I punched a 1/8" hole above and below his arms so I could insert a lollipop, and then I mounted the image onto my card using a double layer of foam tape:


This got me thinking: What else could our little bunny hold in his arms? So I asked our design team members to take on this challenge, which they kindly agreed to do...and today I'm excited to present our first ever Inky Antics blog hop, where you can see the results!

We invite you to view each designer's project and leave comments along the way. (I think our designers will really appreciate hearing how you like their cards.) THREE lucky winners who visit and post at every stop in the blog will be drawn at random to receive the clear stamp set used for this hop! You've got until Sunday, February 27th, at midnight Central time to participate.

So let's get hopping and look at more bunnies, shall we? If you lose your way, just return here to get back on the trail. Here we go:

Debbie
Jovi
Crystal
Tex
Michelle
Trudy

After you're done with the hop, please come back and let us know what you thought. And don't forget to check on Monday the 28th for a list of prize winners.

Thanks very much for joining us, and happy hopping!

Hmmm..cleaning or blog-hopping? Blog-hopping it is! And what a great way to begin. This cute fella is looking so spring-y, he really lifted my spirits this morning.
