And did I mention a prize...check out these adorable stamps you can win just by playing along:



Now for some Friendly Inspiration. I made this card for a "Buddy" and just love it:



I used the Antique Floral Clear Stamp Set available at Paper Garden Projects. Oh this stamp set is a must have, beautiful flowery flourishes that are perfect for Spring. I also used Kaisercraft Devonshire Patterend Paper and I adore this paper set! It is beautiful with a vintage touch! I also used Prism Cardstock. All of these supplies are available at the PGP Store. I simply stamped my flourishes in white and let them blend into my paper for a background.

Next up I made a special notebook for a "Buddy" who needs a little pick-me-up:



I used the same supplies and stamped my flourishes in pink and look how they stand out! Love it!

Here's a close-up:



Hope you've enjoyed a little inspiration from me. Have you guessed my secret friendly word yet??? It's BUDDY!

Now it's time for another stop on the Garden Tour, Tangii! Have fun!!!
