Please see image above post---- As a "Special Thanks" to all of of my Design Team applicants, followers and bloggers in general.....I have added a special treat for you all! We were planning to use this image that we had purchased exclusive rights to (for stamp making) back in October for our line, however......for many reasons, we have decided against adding her. (Our direction has changed for the most part & we would like to stick to a certain style.) Please feel free to download her into your files as a special Thank You gift from me. Just right click on the image, hit copy, then paste her into your pics, print her out and go to town. Thank You all so very much for your support. I hope you enjoy the FREE image. HUGS! Nicole :)

Hi Ladies, First of all I wanted to take the time to Thank "ALL OF YOU" for entering the Inky Impressions 1st Ever DT Call. The Call was supposed to be added a few days earlier, so due to the late posting of the Call......I am extending the call for a few extra days. I deeply apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause for any of you. The new cut off date for all of the entries will be March 22 at 11:59 p.m. The ladies that are selected will then be announced on March 23rd. For the inconvenience...... I will be picking 2 extra people to go onto the second round.

On a good note, I just wanted to let you all know that the process of making the stamps has started. I have worked "EXTREMELY" hard on making sure that the stamps will be nothing but the highest of quality. Of course cute is important, but the quality is far more important to me. With this being said, I assure you that you will be extremely happy with the final product. My stamps will all be EXTRA DEEP ETCHED and made with the finest of rubber.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at InkyimpressionsDT@yahoo.com or you can also email me at Inkyimpressions@hotmail.com Thank You all so very much for your support & for entering our 1st Ever DT Call. HUGS! Nicole :)
