Monsters, INK ......... :)

It's soooooo good to be crafting again!!  How I have missed the creative outlet but nursing duties have kept me out of my craftin' cabana ~ dh is on the mend, getting stronger and healthier every day, and we are certainly feeling so very blessed :)

And it's a Monstah bash - Inktegrity style!  Hopefully you were able to see the release of the new Monster digis from Inktegrity  during their debut week ~ I know I'm certainly happy to bring you this cutie today :)   It's the birthday monster and he {she! notice the PINK toenails! :)-} is ready to par'te!    In addition to this lil cutie, I paired it with this adorable monster paper, a gift from my wonderful friend, Mary :)

But there's more ~ Inktegrity's Hump Day Inspiration wants you to play along!  You could win some free digis!  Here is a sketch for you to play along with ~   link it over to the Inktegrity blog, labeled IHDI#11 ~ remember you can flip it, rotate it, and mostly have fun with it!

Be sure to check out what the rest of the DT have made for you to see ~ enjoy!
