Friendship Hop

Hello welcome to our friendship hop in honor of Simonne!

Simonne has been a part of the Whimsy family for many years and today we wanted to share our love with her and show her how special she is to us. Thank you for everything you do for all of us at Whimsy, Simonne!

For those of you who don't know Simonne allow me to share a bit about her. Not only is she a super talented card maker, skilled Copic colorer, and brilliant Whimsy illustrator, she is also an amazing person. I have had the pleasure of working with Simonne over the years and have developed a true friendship with her. It always amazes me how attached we become to our crafty friends, some of whom we have never actually met in person. I could not imagine my days without having her to chat with and laugh with and just share day to day stuff with. She always makes me smile!

Our DT have come together today to share creations made especially for Simonne. We hope you will hop along with us and check out the fun cards and personal messages to Simonne. And we might even have a little treat to give away for one or two participants also! So be sure to leave comments on all the DT blogs along the way and we will draw 2 random winners who will be given one of our Clearly Whimsy Stamps sets designed by Simonne herself!

For my card today, I have used the stamp sets Happy Hello and Happy Everything along with the Stitched Border Trio Dies and Sweet Large Word Die.

I created the background using Memento inks in a rainbow of colors and the 2 circle burst stamps from Happy Everything. Then I used more rainbow colors of ink and smeared those on a scrap paper and then cut the sweet with the Sweet Large Word Die. I've embellished with some red twine and used foam tape to add dimension to the top layer. The friend word is from Happy Hello.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Simonne, we love ya!
