Tip Off Tuesday! SWEET!!! Giveaway

Hi everyone! I want to say thank you for being here with me today! Well tomorrow we leave North West Florida and head to Louisiana!
I have a few design projects to finish up before tomorrow so it's going to be a busy day. We also have a few last minute things to do before we head out. I'm really going to miss my oldest son Jasper, who is remaining here with my parents to finish out the school year. It's only 2 mths, but to me it will feel like forever. Jasper has Aspergers though and it's best for him to finish the school year and his testing. This will also give me time to locate the best school for him in San Diego
Dont' forget Robyn's Blog Hop is on Friday. I'm a Guest Designer for her Pinkalicious Blog Hop this month. Her DT coordinator, Maria has worked so hard to make this a fabulous hop. I"m thrilled that Robyn invited me this month. It's going to be GREAT!! So don't forget to come back friday for that!
I just received my Imagine from Memory Miser along with all a few cartridges. I'm just missing Buccanner, All Season, and Wrap it Up. I am waiting for those to hit the store at Memory Miser so I can grab them! I really am digging that Buccanner one for my two swashbuckling boys! heehee
Okay so today I thought we would do a Tip off Tuesday, since today is just a CRAZY day for me!
I'd love to share one of my favorite tips with you...

S-W-E-E-T!!! My favorite tip is to ink, ink, ink! Since I do alot of paper piecing, inking my paper piecings with the chalkbox inks or copics is my first step. I then finish up my paper piecings with a black writer and white gel pen, adding small highlights. I just think for me, it gives a more finished look.
The card shown above I used a light orange to ink the edges of the giraffe and then my pen to add small details.
So I'd love to hear your favorite crafty tip today!
***GIVEAWAY***For sharing your "sweet" tips with me, I have this sweet cartridge for one "sweet as pie" follower!
