A bit about my card: I followed Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #47. Those ultra cute stamps are from Sewing Box - Hugs and Vintage Labels #1 by Waltzingmouse Stamps. I'm in love with Claire's stamps and was overjoyed when my order from her latest release arrived in my mailbox just in time for my card today. The cardstock and DP are from the Taylored Expressions Spa Key Ingredients Kit. Taylor has the BEST eye for putting these coordinating papers together with ribbon and other goodies, I just LOVE her kits!

Thanks for "hopping" by! I hope to see you again tomorrow (Sunday) for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge.

The next stop on this blog hop is: Tenia Nelson.

P.S. While nothing more warms the heart than an old friend, the same holds true for new friends. Love and hugs to my "new" friends!!!
