Friendship Hop for Simonne!

Hi Everyone!

Today the Whimsy DT members are hosting a  friendship hop in honor of a special member of the Whimsy Stamps family, Simonne Clay! Simonne has been a fixture here at Whimsy for many years and we all just wanted to show our appreciation for all that she does for each of us and for sharing her amazing talent as an illustrator. :)


 I wanted to use one of Simonne's own stamps, so I used her fabulous 'Chalkboards 2' sentiment set, available at the Whimsy Stamps store. This would be one of my absolute fave go-to birthday and friendship card stamp sets!


The papers are from Kaisercraft 'Storyteller', and I used a Nestabilities Decorative Labels 8 to frame the sentiment.


Thank you so much for all you do for us Simonne! And hope you are loving the love!! {{{HUGS!!}}}

And now it's time to continue with the Friendship Hop in honour of our sweet Simonne...


Hope you have enjoyed all the creations, and please feel free to leave some love and a message for Simonne on the Whimsy Blog!

See you next week!
 
Here's what I used:
