September Celebrations

**Please scroll down for my Lil' Inker Designs
Blog Hop post!**


September is a good month to have a birthday. There's a group of gals gathering together today to wish Laurel a happy birthday! (For a complete listing, see Lynnette's blog.) I hope you have a very happy birthday Laurel, and many, many more. You are talented and so sweet!

Tomorrow we celebrate my baby's sixth birthday, I can't believe how fast the time has just slipped away!


Artful Delight's September Kit was just perfect for birthdays, and I took advantage of that and created two cards that feature the stamps from the kit. (There's still a few available here if you want to pick one up!) I hope you have a great weekend, we will be celebrating with carrot cake (the birthday boy's choice) and bike riding (he's getting a new bike!)

I wish your boy a very happy birthday tomorrow!

Gorgeous cards, love the big pinwheel. Your stamped sentiments are so crisp and clear. My images are a little funky. I use Versafine black. Do you prep your stamp with an eraser or file first??

Your pinwheel card is fabulous. It is so perky and happy with it's combination of striped and polka patterns.
