Friends-N-Family Blog Hop - November 3

Dear friends and family, some more dear ...

The ones I love most, I wish were living more near.  

And the ones who live near who I just don't see as often as I'd like (you know who you are!), know I think of you often and wish you smiles!



Today's Friends-N-Family Blog Hop celebrates family and friendships, by looking at cards and projects we would make for them.
 

The hop is hosted by one of my most special bloggy friends, Jessi at My Life In Arts and Crafts.  Jessi has more energy than I can even imagine, working several jobs, going to college full-time (and is consistently on the dean's list), and is caring for her Mom.  She also runs an online scrappy store, HERE




For my project, I made a friendship card.  This one is from a card kit from a bloggy-friend, Shanna Vineyard, at Art Made With Heart.  

While this card came with all of its pieces cut and all I had to do was follow the instructions, it would also be one that is easy to replicate with my own papers and sentiments.  

I hope you've been inspired. 
Before you hop along, let me  tell you about some blog candy.

We have our favorite monthly sponsor:
Scrapbook Stamp Society




The ScrapBook Stamp Society will reward one special blog visitor with a prize from their store. To be qualified for the drawing, please comment on all participating blogs.  Please provide your contact information in your comment so they know how to reach you when you win!

You'll qualify for extra entries if you follow the ScrapBook Stamp Society on Facebook and/or commenting on their blog.

OK, now hop-a-long....


Here is your next stop: ZENITA

Thank you for visiting ... see you next month!
