Lil' Inker Designs October Release Previews - Jolly

I have to tell you there are days when I feel like the luckiest person in the world.   Today is one of them!   I'm the guest designer for the new release this month at Lil' Inker Designs.   Like you - I am a huge fan and I truly appreciate getting a chance to be a part of the previews being shown the next few days.  To have my projects featured along side some of my favorite designers is really exciting too!   If you are hopping along you should have reached me from Amy Kolling's Blog and if you just stopped by for a visit and want to start at the beginning click here.  You are not going to want to miss these.  

There are lots of great dies this release - and all so classic Lil' Inker!  The project I'm showing today features the bitty ginger bread man from the new "Christmas Bits Dies" and look close... YES!  They do have the stitching you've come to love from Lil Inker!  I die cut the little guys in kraft card stock trimmed them down and rounded the corners.  I inserted pattern paper cut outs for their centers and topped them with little heart gems.  Oh yes - and did you see that fabulous script "Jolly Word Die"  smack dab in the center?  That's new too!!  
I know you have lots you want to see - and I promise you are going to fall in love with all the new dies from Lil' Inker Designs!!  Your next stop is Jen Carter's Blog!  And make sure you leave comments along the way - because yes there is hidden candy and you just never know!!  Good luck and happy hopping! See you tomorrow for more new release designs!

I love this design - the lovely scripty die cut sentiment looks so pretty over that gingham ribbon. I love the rustic, country feel this card has. Makes me want to cozy up by a fire with a cup of cocoa.
