For A Friend.....

Keep smilin', keep shinin', Knowin' you can always count on me, for sure. That's what friends are for...

In fact, that's what today's Stamp Simply challenge is all about... FRIENDS! It's simple, make a card for a friend, for any reason what-so-ever! Just make sure the word friend appears somewhere on the card front. You can check out all the official details over at Sharon's place! Just click HERE!

When some of the Stamp Simply gals got together a few weeks ago, Tammy brought a bunch -- and I mean A BUNCH-- of stamps with her and in the pile was this darling little hopper! It's a Penny Black stamp and I just think he's darling!
This card is pretty plain and simple! I colored him up with watercolor pencils and then blended with a blender pen. Add a little glitz to the flower with some Diamond Stickles, cut him out with a circle Nestabilities die, mat it onto a half of a Labels One Nestabilities die. Add some SU ribbon, some paper piercing and a fun punched border (Fiskars Threading Water), add a button and... done! The sentiment is from Flourishes' Sweet Violet set.

Here's a close up of the little froggie! Isn't he just too cute?
I am sooooo excited to refer you to the list of ladies in the Stamp Simply team. BECAUSE.... my mom was asked to be the guest designer for August! How incredibly fun is that? She's Pat Adam, The Rubber Maid. My mom and I both started stamping around the same time (2000) and ever since, it's been a craft that has brought us even close together - if that is possible!

So, be sure to "hop" on over and say hello... and visit all these other talented ladies while you are at it! :-)

Pat Adam, August Guest Designer --YEAH!
