INKspired Blog Hop & Sentimental Sunday - An Open Heart

14 June 2015

Welcome to our 18th INKspired Team Blog Hop. You may have just hopped here from super talented friend Lissa.

Sentimental Sunday is something I created for my blog last week and it's the day of the week I recognise someone special in my life. Early this week when I was making the card for today's post, I opened up my new English Garden Designer Series Paper and it reminded me of my sweet friend Michelle and her beautiful rose garden. The stamp set I used also reminds me of Michelle, not only because of the cute little birdy, but also the name of the stamp set, An Open Heart, because Michelle not only has an open heart, but the warmest, most generous soul and I am so blessed to be able to call her my friend.

Every week Teneale designs a sketch to get our inspiration from. Here is this weeks sketch:

Thank you for letting me share a little piece of me with you today and thank you Michelle for our friendship. Be sure to drop in next Sunday for another Sentimental Sunday. 

Next on the hop is Maree with her beautiful creation this week.
