Inktegrity Birthday Blog Hop!

** Please scroll down for Thursday's with Lindsay **

Good Morning! Thanks for stopping by for Inktegrity's Birthday Blog Hop! We are so happy that you're here.

If you came from Laura Jean's blog, then you're on the right track. On this stop, my first card I'm featuring Mikey. He's got the sweetest face, so sincere and so loving.



I decided that I loved Mojo Monday's sketch so much that I had to use it again. Isn't Mikey sweet? I love this little monkey. Mikey and his sentiments are so versatile, he can be used for a Valentine's Day card, but I wanted to get away from that and create a friendship card. His sentiment "I love hanging out with you" is perfect for this! I colored Mikey with Copic Markers and the dp came from DCWV The Glitter Mat Stack. The paper is so much fun with soft hues. I used So Saffron and Bashful for the mats and border. I used a Martha Stewart punch on the border.



Next up is Wally. Wally is the latest 'surprise' friend to join the Inktegrity family. He is available as a freebie with any $5 purchase from the store from January 15th-February 14th. After that he will be available for purchase individually. Oh my goodness, this little really stole my heart! He is such sooo adorable. The base is Brocade Blue. I used this great background stamp that my friend Tami Mayberry sent me with Brocade Blue for tone on tone so that the base had something to do. I embossed a piece of white card stock with the Swirls Cuttlebug folder and then inked with Bashful Blue and Broken China to highlight the "waves." Then completed it with a border (MS punch) and one of his sentiments, You're a "whale-y" good friend and just a bit of shimmery blue organdy ribbon.

Now 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.
