Friendship Hop for Simonne :)

Welcome to a very special blog hop!  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 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've only recently become acquainted with Simonne and she is just the sweetest person!  I have enjoyed getting to know her a little better over the months.  She is so just as talented as she is sweet too.  She does so much for our team so I am so happy to be able to help honor her and thank her for all of her contributions!

I chose the sentiment "a million wishes" because that is what I wish for Simonne...that her hopes & wishes will come true!

To create the card I used stamp sets all created by Simonne.  I started by stamping the chevron background from Basic Backgrounds & Borders in Fresh Ink Slate ink.  I used two stamp sets to create the sentiment.  "A million" is from the Thanks a Million stamp set & "wishes" is from the Happy Everything stamp set.  The circle bursts are also from Happy Everything (that set has so many components that I have a hard time NOT using it on every card, it is just that versatile).  The little gold dots are from the Scandi Christmas set.

Be sure to visit everyone on the hop!
