 Enjoy all the beautiful designs featuring For the Love of Friendship!   If you came here from Angie's blog you are in the right spot, if not you may want to start back at the beginning for a chance to win and for more inspiration.

For my creation I used the Seeds stamp set and a sneak peek of Earth's Gladdest Day.  I stamped the crocus and embossed it in black on watercolor paper and then colored and painted with watercolor markers.  I then embossed the background with a SU embossing folder to make it look like Aida cloth.  The sentiment from Seeds was stamped in Stazon Purple ink on a Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags Two.
