Inky Impression 2nd Design Team Call

Good Evening Everyone!!! I hope everyone has been enjoying their Saturday. I have had quite the lazy day. I do enjoy Saturdays. Well today my cute adorable little boy thought he would give mom a surprise and make me some coffee. So sweet of him...hehe...but however he is 6 let me remind you...well...he dropped the coffee pot and broke it. OH MY I can't live without my coffee pot.
So before all this happened I was on Splitcoast Stampers checking out the DT call positions available. I ran across Inky Impressions. Wow what a fabulous company with the most adorable stamps and an awesome design team. So I thought I would give it a shot, I would love to be a part of their team. I was thinking, I needed to find something pomegrante color some sort of candy or something. I went to the store to purchase another coffee pot, looked in the candy isle..OMG they had raspberry and almond flavored M&Ms....YUMMY. So I knew right then, that I needed to go ahead a make what I was creating in my mind. So my cute little son getting me to the store to purchase a new coffee pot also lead me to some pomegrante color M&Ms. Gotta love that!!! You are probably wondering why I need pomergrante...well the design team call wanted us to use purely pomegrante, kiwi kiss, blue bayou and chocolate chip. I did however subsitute blue bayou for baja breeze, hopefully they do not mind...if they do I will create another using the darker blue...Hope you like what I created and wish me the best of luck!!!
