Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge

Inside sentiment reads: "is having a friend by your side"


I'm a bit tardy for the hop but I didn't want to miss this fun event sponsored each month by Papertrey Ink.  Our challenge this month is based on this photo:



There were three wonderful sketch options but I selected this one:



I created a second card using the same sketch but added a few more details : ) I simply LOVE the "Movers & Shakers Sentiments" stamp set by PTI especially when used with the zipper die.  I guess the kid in me still loves surprises and it makes me smile knowing the recipient will have fun pulling back the zipper to reveal the rest of the sentiment.

Under the zipper it reads: "sending you a little something special!"


That is it for me for today but before I go I would like to introduce my newest follower, Lynne, from Ruby-Dooby-Doo Crafts blog.  Lynne has a FUN and playful style that I really love!! She follows all the way from northern Ireland and has THE cutest dog!! Please do pop over and see her wonderful cards and when you do be sure to leave some love!

There is still time to join the hop at Papertrey Ink. I will be spending the remainder of the afternoon hopping from blog to blog seeing the wonderful talents and soaking up all the sweetness this challenge inspires in blogland.

Have a wonderful day!!

Patti

Supplies:

Patterned paper "Dotty For You" by CTMH
