Inktegrity's Spring Hop!

I have two posts for you today!  For the Sugar Creek Hollow post, please see the previous post & and enjoy!

Welcome to Inktegrity's Spring Hop!

You probably just visited Sheri's amazingly wonderful blog!  Sheri is also the beginning of this fabulous Spring Hop for Inktegrity, but you can find the entire hop list below if you are just joining or get lost along the way :) Today's hop is a celebration of the awesome Design Team and all of you who create with Inktegrity!

All of these images that you see on our blogs were created by request of each member.

Here's the really fun part!  Along the hop, there is a letter for you to collect - no need to unscramble as it is spelled out for you.  Simply email the phrase to jonjinko@hotmail.com with the phrase in the subject line and she will email the freebie image to you. In addition, be sure to leave a comment on the Inktegrity blog (the last on this hop) so that you are eligible to win your choice of 5 of these images!!!

And since I live in Sunny South Florida, sooo close to the ocean & thought about my makin' sandcastles in the sand blog ......  I'm excited to share with you Miami, the seahorse!  How glorious is he! 

Miami is the new Seahorse image and  I paired him with some underwater colored papers I had left over from my Donna Downey class - da bomb fun!!  That's actually where I learned to make these incredible flower stems :)  They are strips of cardstock, dampened and then twisted into shape & dried with the embossing tool.   Supah fun!  Of course, mine look absolutely nothing like hers, rofl, but the fun was in the tryin'!  I added some printed prima flowers (my fave, the bottom one has the word "angel" on it!), green grass embroidery floss and oceanic colored buttons - some small pearls for water bubbles so Miami would feel right at home in this under the sea floral creation ;)

It's truly been an inspiring and uplifting experience to design for Joni at Inktegrity - one very, very sweet & truly talented artists!  It has been a priviledge to work with these digi images and this one made just for me truly means the world to me ~ I hope he swims right into your heart as well!  He is available today in the Inktegrity shop!   And did I mention Miami comes with his own sentiments?  Swim on over and take a peek!

For this hop, my letter for you is .........

From here, make sure to hop on over to the uber talented Tracy and you will be truly awed by the beauty of her work!  Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to email Joni with your answer and leave a comment at the Inktegrity blog!
