3rd Birthday Celebration & Challenge Winners Announced & MORE!

Good morning! Our challenge ended last night just about midnight and I woke up this morning and thought it would be a great morning to review the entries again and pick our WINNERS!!!!!!!!

But first, I thought I would let you know that if you're already ready for more Lil' Inker goodies you won't have to wait much longer!

September 3rd is the day of our next new release hop and we're getting ready to release 2 new die sets, 1 individual die and a 3x4 stamp set which coordinates with one of the die sets. 

We are also planning to showcase projects featuring our new Snarky Sentiments Stamp Set but I don't think they will be restocked in time for our release hop as they have sold out already during our birthday celebration. 

Due to such high demand, Snarky Sentiments is already on order and I expect they will arrive in 2-3 weeks time from now and will be available at their regular retail price of $15 when they are restocked.

We also have a very exciting Guest Designer who will be joining us for our next release so you won't want to miss it!!

On another note, this weekend we restocked our Stitched Mats: Squares and Cover Up Die: Pieced Chevron Dies in the store and there is still time to take advantage of our SALE which continues through the end of August. 

Through August 31st if you spend:

at least $50 you will receive 10% off your order by using the code LIDIS3A 

spend $100 or more and receive 15% off your order by using code LIDIS3B

**These codes are entered in your shopping cart screen before proceeding to PayPal for payment. These codes MUST be entered at the time of checkout in order to take advantage of the offer.**

Ok, so our Birthday Celebration & Challenge was so so much fun. I can't believe how quickly three years has gone by and we definitely felt the love for our little company. Thank you to everyone who left comments and love and played along. I'm STILL smiling! You can bet that we're looking forward to another successful three years and lots more goodies to come your way!

Let's get to some winners!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please note that we had 27 official entries but I drew winners based on 28. We had a participant with linky trouble and I wasn't available last night before the link closed to assist her so I included her entry as #28 for our number drawing purposes.

I will start with our two Snarky Sentiments Stamp Set winners first - Yes, I kept a couple sets to the side so I could still give these out as prizes :) Aren't you glad I did? was used to choose our winners. It always baffles me how random it is and so weird when it gives me two consecutive numbers as winners! 

Our 2, randomly chosen winners are entry numbers 20 & 21....

Congratulations, Ladies!!! You've each won a copy of our brand new Snarky Sentiments Stamp Set which has proven to be our fastest selling stamp set EVA!!!

Next up are our hand picked (more than) Honorable Mention Winners! I say more than honorable because these projects are stellar!!
