Love is Friendship

     I've got another sweet Whimsy and Stars Studio card for you today.  Mabelle's images just make me smile.  Hope they make you smile too.  :-)  If you're not a follower of the W&SS blog, make sure you pop over there today and check out the great Tuesday showcase Mabelle will have up today.  Projects from all the DT members will be on the blog.
     This image is called "Spring Boy and Girl".  Cute couple huh!  :-)  I've colored them with Copics and Prismas and cut them out for a little different look.  I've used some of the bits and pieces of 12 x 12 sheets of MME's Mabel collection I have left.  The sentiment is one I've had a long time from Raindrop Echo Designs when they used to offer them as freebies on the Sentimental Sunday challenge blog.
     Also, you can mark your calendars that tomorrow Mabelle will be giving away a freebie on her Facebook and Facebook fan pages.  You can find links for both of those on the W&SS blog.  Just look at her.  Isn't she a doll! (Note:  You do not have to be a Facebook subscriber to get the freebie.  Just click on the blog link I gave you and you'll find all the info on how to get Rosie)

     Back tomorrow with a VERY special DT card that was sent to a VERY special person.
