Clean and Simple

Hello and welcome to this month's Just Inklined Blog Hop. Our host this month is Jak and her theme choice is CAS (Clean and Simple). Now for me that was easy because I don't often make "busy" cards so I loved this theme choice.

I used this stunning Rose Bloom image and coloured it in with Promarkers. The rest is self explanatory, some score lines and a few pearls and that's it!! Easy peasy!! lol

Now just to make this hop a little more interesting, there are five hidden spot prizes on five of the design teams blogs. We're not letting you know on whose blogs the prizes can be found, but if you leave a comment on each blog and your name is chosen from one of the winning blogs. then you win the digi image showcased on the card on that particular blog. The winners will be announced on Wednesday.

If you're following the hop in the right order you should have arrived here from Meesh and from here you need to pop over to Cathy and see what little beauty she's got in store for you.

In case you get lost here's the hop in the correct order. Enjoy!!

Jak
Debbie
Toni
Meesh
Karen (me)
Cathy
Heidy
Joyce
Jeni

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoy the hop! xx
