Inky Impressions Announcement

Hi Friends!! Hey another card for the day! LOL! Stop it, Maria! I can't catch up with all your postings! I know. . .I'm trying to limit myself to two postings a day but I do have a back log of cards to post. I'm afraid if I don't post the cards, I'll get lazy and not want to create because I can pre-schedule my cards a week in advance. You know how that goes.

Well, I want to make an announcement . . .I made it to the preliminary rounds for Inky Impressions and I'll be a DT for 2 months. After the two months, Inky Impressions will decide on who will have an extended spot for their company. I, initially, asked for a guest DT position but I think I'll go for the extended position if they decide to pick me.

Inky Impressions is a new company that is starting up and the images are really cute like the one on this card. Isn't she adorable? There's several bloggers that I know are on the team so it's awesome to be working alongside such talented ladies.

I had this piece of scrap designer paper in my scrap pile and I realized that the butterflies were situated in a way that I was able to cut parts of the butterflies and slide the Inky Impressions image under the butterflies' wings. I couldn't cut the antenna nicely so I added wire works to create the antenna.

I know this is an Easter image because of the eggs but shhhh, don't say anything, okay? If you look pass the eggs, the image can be for any occasion.

Anyway, stop by the Inky Impression challenge blog. . .I believe they'll be starting up challenges there and they also have a Yahoo site that you can join and be part of the fun!!
Hope you all have a fantastic day!
