To complete the hop, follow along the order of the hop and leave a comment on each blog's post.  Once you have done this, come back here and leave a comment that you have completed the hop.  You should only leave one comment per blog.
Prizes will be given out on March 8th.  The hop is open from March 5th to March  7th.  So don't miss out!!!

Now that you know the rules, let's get this party started!!! 


Here is my card! I absolute adore this stamp  set called Surprise. I love the vintage little girls and the matching expressions. One of my favorite sentiments is Belated Birthday Wishes because I'm forever forgetting birthdays! LOL I kept it clean and simple (I think I was channeling Lisa McKinney while I was creating!) and I love how it turned out. These would actually be really fast and easy to make a set of for a gift or if you were getting ready for a craft fair! I stepped out of my normal Copic zone and pulled out my Derwent Inktense pencils. I only have the 12 set so you can see you don't need all of them to create something cute! (Although, I am sure I will be adding to my collection as I really LOVE the look of them on kraft paper!) For their skin, I don't have a good skin tone in the 12 set so I used the peach color from Faber-Castell Gelatos. 

Supplies:
Lil' Inker Designs - Surprise stamp set
Derwent Inktense Pencils
Faber-Castel Gelatos
Water Brush
Archival Ink - Jet Black
PaperTrey Ink Kraft Cardstock

I hope you like it and thanks so much for joining us today!

Here is the order of the hop! Your next stop is Laura

cute, cute, cute! This is precious. Love that you used kraft card stock - it really is a great look (especially with the pencils), and yet I haven't been able to make myself try it yet. Like the box around it too - it is simple but really finishes it off!

Love your blog and that baby card is adorable. I am linking up from the hop. I was reading the about you section on the side - I am married to my high school sweetheart too. It will be 12 years in July. Isn't it amazing to grow up together.
Glad to have found you.

Very pretty card and love it done on Kraft, just makes it look that more vintage. I love the images. Reminds me growing up in the 50-60's and this kind of images in books and magazines. I love this set. Coloring is awesome, great touch with the washi.

Carisa, I love the 'antique-y' feel of this design. The paper and coloring match the era of the stamp. Glad you got your camera working! :)
