Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - Furry Friends


Welcome to the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop.  Our theme this month is "Furry Friends".  We were challenged to share a project that celebrates a furry friend.  I decided to celebrate the amazing otter from the Awesome Otter Stamp Set.  Not sure I want to get too close to an otter, but the are very cute!

You can get this Stamp Set for free during Sale-a-Bration! Place an order of $60 before shipping and taxes before February 28th and you can choose the Awesome Otter Stamp Set for FREE!  My card also features the Simply Marbelous Designer Series Paper - also available for free during Sale-a-Bration.  With an order of $120, you can choose both!
