Just Inklined to Hop - Check It Out


Well here we are again with our monthly Just Inklined Blog Hop.
It's my turn to host this month so you're in the right place to start the hop and my chosen theme is "Check It Out" (checks as in squares!! lol)

I chose this gorgeous Pansy image and coloured it with Promarkers. The gingham check is from the Wild Rose Studio Gorgeous Ginghams paper pack, and the embossed frame is from Craftwork Cards.

To make the hop more fun, there are two hidden spot prizes on two 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.

So on to the hop. From here you need to pop over to the fabulous Cathy and see what little beauty she's created and just in case you get lost here's a list of all the girls in the correct order.

Karen (me)
Cathy
Heidy
Joyce
Jak
Tammy
Toni

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoy the hop xx
