Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop. This week we have a theme challenge. If this is your first time here, welcome! If not, welcome back!! Either way, you're in for a treat!!! I used the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set to create my card for today.

We have a sketch challenge today and here's what it looks like.
Easy peasy, right? I'm glad because I totally forgot that I hadn't made my card until 11:30 AM yesterday! Thank you, Amy, for making this a quick one!


My card base is Thick Basic White with a panel of DSP from Beauty of the Earth. This paper series is gorgeous with different variations (redundant?) of trees, so why not enter this forest in the Make My Monday #153 Trees Challenge!

The sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set is stamped in Mossy Meadow and cut out with a die from Stitched So Sweetly. I added a Bumblebee Trinket and my card was done! Too bad I couldn't have found a speed challenge! BUT I'm thankful I still have time to enter it in the Paper Players PP550 CAS Challenge

Because I am so proud of myself for making a CAS card, I'm entering it in the CAS Colours & Sketches: Challenge #429 Colour. Old Olive is close to Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow is close to Garden Green. Bumblebee is Bumblebee!

Dave and I are fine, I'm working too much between my "regular job", my grandcherubs, my Stampin' Up! business and events, and on and on it goes...lol! I sure hope there will be an in person event for SU soon so we can meet in person. I feel like we are already friends! 😍
