A Friendship Blog Hop

Hello everyone and thanks so much for visiting!
Today the Whimsy Design Team members are hosting a  friendship hop in honor of a special member of the Whimsy Stamps family, Simonne Clay. Simonne has been a fixture  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.

A little note for Simonne.
Thank you so much Simonne for the amazing and gorgeous stamp sets we got to create with, thank your for your friendship over the years and for all you have done for each one of us at whimsy.
 Not to mention your amazing cards always inspire me! Sending lots of  hugs your way my dear friend!

I hope you like the card I created just for you!


The beautiful chalkboard sentiments are from one of the sets designed by Simonne. I've surrounded it with the cute Whimsy Wee stamps kittens which were fussy cut. I simply embellished with some sequins and did some paper piecing.
Product list:
 Playful Kittens, Mini Chalkboards, Everyday Moments
(stamps all by Whimsy)
Papers from stash
butterfly punch, paper piecing tool
copics for coloring

If you are hopping along with us today, you should have arrived from Debbie's blog. If not, and you'd like to, simply click here ( Whimsy Blog ) to start. 

Your next stop after my blog is Amy's blog, and I am sure she will have something wonderful to share too. 
Here is the complete blog list for you in case you get lost along the way.


Thank you so much for stopping by and for hopping with us to celebrate Simonne's friendship with us all! I hope you have fun hopping!!
