Stampin’ Up! Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today for our hop we had a sketch challenge.  I borrowed this darling stamp set “Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts” I realized this is the PERFECT set to use for our hop.   I wish I had ordered this adorable set when the Occasions Catalog started as I know this would have been a favorite of mine.  It’s retiring in May so if you want this cute stamp set now is the time to get it ordered.
