Happy Saturday Everyone!! I hope you have all had a great start to the weekend!! The Inky Impressions design team is kickin' up their heels with some real Hoppin' Fun!! Today is our blog hop for Inky Impressions!!! Nicole has not just one but EIGHT NEW RELEASES!! Even I have not seen them all. What I have seen, I LOVE!

If you have come here from Nicole's blog then you have come from the right place, if not, you may just want to click in to her blog to start at the beginning so you don't miss anything along the way. I am second in line for today's hop and I am so excited to be sharing this darling stamp that shares my oldest daughter's name and even reminds me of her in looks as well. The stamp is called "Shy Little Nicki".



Isn't she just the sweetest? I colored her with prisma color pencils and gamsol. She is cut out and popped up on dimensionals as well. The sentiment was typed up on my PC.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Shy Little Nickie from Inky Impressions
Paper: BG Lilykate, Periwinkle Blue? Bazzill, Bitter Chocolate Bazill, White CS
Accessories: Pearls, MS leaf punch, MS fence border punch, prima dandies

As a thank you to all my blogging friends for stopping by today, I am offering some blog candy! It is just a small little something since I will be doing blog candy on my birthday for all my followers in a couple of weeks as well. To win, all you have to do is leave a comment here. I will randomly choose a winner at the end of the hop (blog hop ends September 19) on September 20! You have one week to visit all the dt's blogs on the hop for a chance to win blog candy (many are offering mystery blog candy) at each and every blog along the way and for a chance at the Inky Prize!!


Now I don't want to keep you any longer since there is so much more fun to be had on this hop!!!! Your next stop along the way is Jacqui.
