Garden Of Friends Blog Hop!

Welcome to day one of the sneak peek Blog Hop Challenges! If you made your way here from Jackie's blog then you are on the right track! If not, you may want to head back to the TSG Blog to find out what this is all about and how you can win today's featured stamp set!!
Winter just officially began yesterday but I am so ready for some spring beauty! Today the Trendsetters are giving sneak peeks of the brand new, soon to be released stamp set Garden Of Friends. This stamp set was inspired by a dear friend of mine who has an amazing garden. Whenever I go to her house, she always has gorgeous floral arrangements. During one of our stamping get togethers at her house this summer there was this beautiful arrangement in a vintage looking pitcher. Below is a picture of the actual arrangement and the stamp set was created from it's inspiration-

For my card today, I used one of Julee's great Mojo sketch challenges. I stamped the image in Momento Tuxedo Black and colored it with blender pens and SU ink. The DP used is a from a great stack that I found waiting for me on my front porch from my wonderful friend Kelli :) I love friends like that lol!
Now hop on over to the fabulous Jessie's blog to check out her creation using the Garden Of Friends stamp set :)

It is amazing to me how you can look at something and draw a stamp image.

Using only part of your stamped image shows it's versitility.

Love the way you used part of the stamp vs. the whole stamp. Great layout and like the hint of the stamp makes such a focal point. Really brings your eye to the stamp. Thanks for sharing.

Wow! I love how you made the stamp just about as detailed as the original photo is. It's a great stamp!
