Whimsy Friendship Hop for Simonne


Hello Everyone! Today I'm part of a very special blog hop! The Whimsy DT members are hosting a  friendship hop in honor of a special member of the Whimsy Stamps family, Simonne Clay


Simonne has been a fixture here at Whimsy for many years and we all just wanted to show our appreciation for all that she does for each of us and for also for being an  amazingly talented illustrator.

Simonne I just want to say Thank You for always being here for us, taking care of all of us, being patient even if a question is asked the upteenth time. ;-) You always have solutions for our problems, you respond in the kindest way like you always have a smile on your face, always have a helping hand. You are a brilliant designer and you totally rocked it as an illustrator! You are amazingly talented. You are a wonderful and dear friend and I'm proud to call you my friend!! Big Hugs!! 

This sweet Time for Tea Designs image is called 'Cupcake' and I colored her using Copics. Papers are from an older Basic Grey collection. The 'Friend' sentiment is made using the 'Just my Type' set and cut out with the circle die from the Tiny Shapes Set.

Here's a close-up on the image:

You'll also have the chance on winning some prizes along the hop. Just hop with us and leave a comment on each participating hop!

Here is a full hop list in hopping order:




Thank you for hopping with us and sharing our appreciation for Simonne!

Hugs,
