Just Inklined to Blog Hop!

Yaayyy! It's that time of the month, dear Bloglanders, when the DT at Just Inklined are all 'inklined' to blog hop. And I'm delighted to say that I'm now a fully fledged, full-time member of the Just Inklined Design Team - a big thank you to Jak for taking me on!  It's great to be working with such a talented bunch of designers (and illustrators, of course)!

This month, our hop theme is 'stripes' - and, boy, did I take this one literally!

If you've arrived here from Jak's blog, then you're on the right path.  If not, then you might want to hop back to Karen's blog and start from the beginning.

So, without further ado, here's my stripey submission:

Image: Just Inklined, 'Maude Doodlebuns, Flab Fig'hter'

Papers: Pink Petticoat, 'Stripes' collection

Wordart: Freebie from Create with TLC

OMG! Poor Maude!  Despite the fact that she's getting on a bit, she cannot forget that she was once voted 'Miss Blackpool 1945' and feels that she should do everything in her power to maintain her highly desirable appearance.  So she's taken herself off to the gym but, really, it's not a pretty sight, is it?  And horizontal 'go-faster' stripes don't do a girl any justice! 

Mind you, I've been kind enough to give her a nice vertical stripe, straight down the middle - it's supposed to elongate, you know, and, well, Maude needs all the elongation she can get these days!

Isn't this an hilarious image!?  And I just loved this sentiment by Create with TLC - perfect!

Anyway, on with the hop and next stop is our other new DT member, the mega-talented Cathy Edgar, who I know will have something wonderful waiting for you.

Happy hopping.
