Inktegrity New Release Blog Hop

If you are here for the SEW MANY CARDS Release Party and Blog Hop, click here!

Welcome to Inktegrity's Spring Hop!

I hope you have arrived here from Diane's blog. If not, the entire blog hop is listed in order below. Be sure to go to the beginning so you won't miss a thing.

This Blog Hop is a celebration of the 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. It has been my privilege to serve on the Inktegrity Design Team these past four months. I value the experience and the relationships developed! Thank you, Joni!!!

At each blog 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 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!!!

Now, let me introduce you to the image Joni created for me...

Rico the Flamingo

Since I live in northern Illinois where we have a lot of snow and not a single tropical beach, you might wonder why I chose a flamingo for my image. Quite simply, I chose a flamingo because I love my daughter. One of my daughter's beloved possessions is a pink plastic flamingo named Rico. He holds many precious memories for her. Hmmmmmmmmm... I wonder who will be getting Rico the Flamingo cards???

I created two cards for today's Blog Hop since the Rico the Flamingo image comes with two sentiments and I couldn't choose just one of them.

Pink isn't just a color... it's an attitude.

Image and Sentiment: Inktegrity Rico the Flamingo
Coloring: Prisma Watercolor Pencils with Baby Oil
Cardstock: Stampin' UP! Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, and Pink Pirouette
Designer Paper: from my scrap file
Embellishments: buttons and ribbon scraps

Before we can FLY, we must learn to PRANCE.

Image and Sentiment: Inktegrity Rico the Flamingo
Coloring: Copic Markers
Cardstock: Stampin' UP! Ballet Blue and Pretty in Pink
Designer Paper: from my scrap file
Embellishment: American Traditional Designs Ribbon

You probably noticed the varying sizes of the Rico images. I think that is the single most exciting thing about digital images. You can make them any size you want to! You can also flip them. They are so versatile.
For this hop, my letter is :

Now you can continue on to Joni's blog to see another special image. Thank you so much for coming by!

In my town, flamingos are used for fund raising- you "pay"/donate to get them off your lawn and on to someone else's....This would be a great image to make note cards out of thanking everyone.
