Letters to a Friend

Hello.  Welcome.  Lots of exciting happenings in blogland.  Still 12 hours to enter the coffee lovers blog hop.  I will be visiting whoever wins the prize for visiting every link!!  Have you seen?  It's heading for 600 links!!  That's a lot of hopping.  So here's my contribution.  Actually this is my second link, and if you missed the first one it's HERE with a little giveaway, so maybe worth a visit as well LOL.


I based my design on the new Stamplorations sketch.  I kept it purple cos the lovely Becca has got The Hop to Stop happening now and the colour is purple.   So I did all my stamping with Dusty Concord distress ink



The girl holding the coffee cup is Unity's Dream of Being.  The postmark is from Stamplorations Mixed Media Grunge and the script is Stamplorations Mixed Media Elements.  Got it up the right way this time LOL.

  6. SIX HUNDRED? That is crazy good! Go you doing two for it!! And even though I am not a purple fan, I really like that - probably cos it's as much white! And the stamps combo looks fabulous:):)
