Friendship Hop!


12.19.14#2 

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. 

Not only have I had the pleasure of designing with this talented illustrator's designs, I have been chatting with Simonne over the past few months and I'm so glad to call her a friend!  Simonne, I am so glad we've "chatted" and truly wish you the best in what you do after Whimsy.  I hope that I will get to work with you again in the future!  xoxo

So, this card is for YOU!  I used the FIRST sets I was sent as a guest for Whimsy almost a year ago.  They are still my favorites:  Sweet as Candy and Sweet as Candy Sentiments!  

I masked off the top portion of my card and stamped the candy repeatedly on the bottom to create my own pattern paper.  Using the 'Sweet' word die, I layered several together and centered them across my candy panel.

Love the "pieces of candy". Leaving part of the card blank is a great idea. The sentiment really pops.

I'm so glad to call you my friend too! :) And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your card. The Sweet As Candy sets have a special place in my heart as they were the first sets I designed for CWS, and I will always remember gasping in awe when I saw what you made with them! This card is just as stunning! Thank you for all your encouragement and support, and thank you for showcasing my designs so perfectly! You are awesome!! xxx
