Hey all! Today is a super fun day! Yes… it is not Friday but still super fun and you won’t want to miss out on any of it!  If you are coming from the incredible Nancy's blog then you have already had a taste for what is in store for you! Welcome to my blog! This is so much fun that I am excited to be a part of this super fun blog hop! It is so much fun every time we do this to see all the creativeness within the team. 

Today for the blog hop I am continuing you on your journey with the adorable new release stamp set Love Grows Here Clear Stamp Set. I absolutely love these style stamp sets with these cute little kids doing different things. 

This one makes me think of my son and daughter working together outside and caring for one another... before they started into this teenage mutation haha! Now, I am always making cards to help encourage them through these new steps in their journey of life. This one I made for Meadow.

I actually have a photo that makes me think of my kids like this only Stephen is standing next to a new baby tree and kissing his baby sister on her head. It is just such a very sweet scene.

The first fun fold is the image moving out to the right side...

Then you open the next flap to the left side and you get your space for your written message and a place for another sentiment.

I also put a sentiment on the band as well that holds the image.

Here are the colors and my supply list... but down at the bottom you will also find the list of what other blogs you can hop to. The next blog for you to hop to from my blog is to the lovely Leigh!

Skin: E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, R20, 30
Hair: E40, 41, 42, 43
