Hi all

Welcome to our second Inky Impressions blog hop, showing Nicole's new Valentine Release, more cute animals, now if you hopped here from the gorgeous Inkette Giovanna you are in the right place or if you are just visiting you may like to go to the beginning of the hop at The Inky Impressions Blog.

Today I have used this adorable new image 'Joseph and Lynette's First Date', available here, aren't they such a cute couple.

I have created a heart box, which required some patience lol!  As I made it using my CM heart template, took a bit of sticking together!  MS heart and butterfly punches.  Just a few of DH's fav treats for inside. 

A closer look at Joseph and Lynette, couldn't resist using my glimmermist again and added a few flowers and cute heart charm which can be found at Inky Impressions Store.  Distressed the edge and sponged with SU Lavender Lace.

Now hop on over to the gorgeous Inkette Sonja to see what beautiful eye candy she has for you.  Don't forget to comment on all the Inky DT blogs for the chance to win two of the new release images, 1 sentiment and some embellishments from Nicole (Inky Mama).   For you chances of winning you must complete the Blog Hop by Friday 9.00am EST.

In case you get lost along the way here is the list of the DT member’s blogs.

Nicole has a Valentines Special this month and the gorgeous 'Angelica Heart Socks' is available to buy for USD$10.50.
