Blogging Friends Blog Hop - Favourite Stampset!

Hello my hopping friends.

We have another fantastic hop for you this month!  We are hopping around to see everyone's all time favourite stampset - it can be current and from the annual catalogue or occasions catalogue or even retired! So many choices - think you could choose?

For my share today, I decided to show you my favourite from the current annual catalogue.  When this year's annual catalogue first came out, this stampset was the very first stampset that I wanted! The card in the catalogue completely sold me on this set!  SO much so that I totally cased it.  You can see that post here.

Which stampset is it you ask?  It is Garden in Bloom!  

I LOVE the watercolour look that this stamset creates.  I love that you can create two different kinds of flowers, a cute little butterfly and the most precious little bumble bee!  Oh and that sentiment "Friends are kind to each other's hopes & cherrish each other's dreams"  I have three besties that are the exact definition of that statement - how lucky am I?!

Here is my card I made for this hop using the Garden in Bloom stamspet....
I unfortunately needed a sympathy card for a lady at work who recently lost her mother. I immediately thought the large flower was a great focal point.  My greeting is from the stampset Thoughts and Prayers.  It has the most perfect sentiments and greetings for someone who is grieving.  

Thanks for hopping by!  Be sure to hop on through to all the stops.  There are some really great projects to be seen!
