Lil' Inker Designs March Release Blog Hop {Day 2}

This is my second post of the day. If you are looking for my Take Two Week {Day 2} post, please CLICK HERE or scroll down.

Welcome to {Day 2} of the Lil' Inker Designs March Release Blog Hop! If you've arrived from Laura's blog, you are on the right track. I hope you hopped along with the design team yesterday when the new sets were revealed with loads of amazing inspiration. If you missed it, you can go back and hop. The more you hop this week, the better your chances of winning a $10 gift certificate to the Lil' Inker Store or Funny Bunnies which will be showcased on Wednesday and Thursday!

I love coffee (and tea) as well as cityscapes and I thought it would so cool to create a building out of the coffee cup to symbolize how many of us need that cup of coffee in the morning as we head off to work (whether it's at home or elsewhere). Indeed, life begins after coffee! A couple of clouds die cut from the same patterned paper collection completes the scene.

Clicking on the following graphics will take you to the Lil' Inker Store where you can purchase these stamps and dies today! :)

Thanks for stopping by today! I will see you again tomorrow with a project using Funny Bunnies. Now head on over to Teresa Kline's blog for more inspiration!

Since I'm currently clutching my coffee mug with a death grip, I think that sentiment fits me pretty well. ;)

Love the patterned paper mix here -- and the huge coffee cup is so fun.
