Happy 6 monthaversary to Inktegrity!



WOW! How lucky am I?! First I win a top secret (well until today) image from Inktegrity, and then Joni asks me if I'll join the blog hop! Well, I'm just tickled pink!

If you've arrived from Joni's blog, you're on the right track. If you want to start at the beginning, head on over to Dani's blog where it all begins!

Thank you so much for coming to the celebration!
Inktegrity turned 6 months young this month, and they are celebrating with this month's new releases and some exciting news!

Here it is! The image for this hop is the image I won during Inktegrity's Mikey contest!



I decided on an easel fold using kraft cardstock. Mikey is colored with Copics. I was surprised at how easily I got the banana's colored. I was a tad nervous I wouldn't have the right shades on hand! I had a blast coloring this up and it was easy to come up with a layout with this adorable image!

Cardstocks and papers are SU & My mind's eye. Texture is from Cuttlebug's Distressed Stripes embossing folder. Accessories include some buttons and ribbon from my stash and 3 little Bella's baubles in a matching green hue. Lastly, I used SU's scalloped edge punch for the inside accent.

There's MORE!

Here's the exciting news: Comment on my blog and the blogs listed below, and you will be entered to win Wally the Whale from each of us! Yes, that means you have 13 chances to win: 11 DT blogs and 2 special friends who won the Mikey contest join us in the blog hop (one of those friends would be little ol' me!). Wally can be seen on some of these blogs so you'll have the opportunity to meet him along the way.

Now head on over to Kelly's blog to see her beautiful card, then end at the Inktegrity blog for one lucky winner to receive ALL 3 new images on this release, which will be available tomorrow in the store.
Happy hopping and thank you for joining us in this little birthday party!

GOOD LUCK!!
