Introducing : International Inkers

*click on any picture if you wish to enlarge*

Hello everyone and welcome to Crafters without borders
 ~ otherwise know as the International Inkers
A few of us thought it would be fun to share kits internationally and a group was born.
 (Thanks Michelle for such great idea! *muwahhh*)
 Representing Germany we have the talented Tanja and Imke, the United States is provided props by our own spunky Catherine and wonderful Michelle, and Canada is ably supported by crafty Karen and myself (Paola) - woohooo...Today is our debut! (Imke will join us next round)

Each month one of us will send identical kits across the borders to our fellow Inkers and once they are received at all the destinations, a posting date will be chosen and our creations will be up for all to see. 
I had so much fun creating this 'totally BOY' card...
the designer paper is amazing, so I wanted to use most of it to display throughout my card.
I also cut up and added the fabby sentiments from one d/p in a popped up mode. :o)

We also have a special International Inkers incentive for each posting.   When you stop at each blog and leave a comment, you will be entered into a drawing to receive the same kit that that the Inkers created with.  This month's kit is pictured here ----->
and will also include the same images in an ink of the winner's choice 

Here is the list of all 'International Inkers' :
Paola (me)

Paola - OH MY! I LOVE IT!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Totally out of the box and I never ever would have thought to do something like this but oh my, be sure I will be snitching the idea. I love that you cut out the words and used them on your card and that the robot is holding one like a sign ~ to die for!

I love the die you used to cut the circles for the "pets" ~ totally robo-riffic! You rocked it to the max my friend!
