Our first new monthly blog hop at inky impressions

Hi blog friends

Welcome to the Inky Impressions Design Team Blog Hop! Each month on the 
15th we will be bringing you an Inky Blog Hop featuring our fabulous Inkettes! This month our Blog Hop theme is Inky Charms! This means that we are all 
sharing some Inky Impressions creations and using some of our Inky Charms! Please join us this month and hop along! Also, be sure to comment along the 
way, you never know where a prize may be hiding!  This month the prize is 
your choice of an Inky Impressions Character or Animal Stamp and a selection of our gorgeous Inky charms.

I chose to use Nickies Birdie from Inky Impressions for my card - she is so 
pretty I love her face and the way she is looking down at the little bird.  
I decided to carry on with the birdie theme and teamed it up with Prima
meadow lark paper for full effect - my Mam would hate this card cos "Ooo you can't have anything with birds on - its unlucky" ! Also to complete the challenge I used the cute inky key charm that I hung from the ribbon with a jump ring, 
there's a mahoosive collection of charms over at the Inky Impressions shop - 
absolutely gorgeous, I couldn't believe the variety - a charm for every 
occassion! -and theres more arriving all the time so go and check it out here.
