Inky Antics Blog Hop!

Welcome to the first ever Inky Antics blog hop!

It starts today and ends on Sunday, February 27th at midnight Central time. We invite you to stop and comment on each Design Team members’ blog, as there will be prizes given away. Three lucky winners (who visit and post at every stop in the hop) will be drawn at random to receive a new release Easter bunny clear stamp set.

If you came here from the talented Debbie Fisher's blog, The Paper Garden, you are in the right spot. If not, you will need to start at Inky Antics blog and work your way through the group!

Here is my card... I had the little bunny holding everything from flower shaped suckers, a packet of carrot seeds and various miniature foam Easter decorations. I finally settled on the lilies, which can be found in the bridal area at Hobby Lobby. The image, Givin' a Squeeze , was colored using Prismacolor Pencils blended with Gamsol. All the cardstock and designer paper is from Close to My Heart's paper pack Mayberry. I also discovered that the zigzag stitch is very forgiving of those of us who can't sew a straight line.

Your next stop will be to visit the ever so talented Crystal Irwin's blog, Crystal's Crafty Creations.
