3M: Hey there, crafty friend!

 Hi friends!

Happy Friday to you all

and wishing you the best start to your weekend :)

Today's card is for the 3M card group, or 3 Musketeers,

which is Jeanette, Barb and I.

This card group was started by Jeanette many years ago

where we take turns sending a stamped image to each other

and all 3 of us make a card.

Jeanette sent us this month's dreamy bouquet of flowers

from Taylored Expressions called Field Notes 2.

Oh, how I've drooled over this stamp set!

like .... drooled!

I decided for this card to color with my Karin markers.

I have the regular set and the neons which I LOVE ~

they give way brighter pops of color!

I've added these colorful blooms to a distress ink grid background

that I'd previously done and tucked a circle die cut behind them.

The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions Simple Strips - friendship

and I've used the simple strips die to cut out the strip.

You can see Jeanette's card here

and Barb's card here.

Next month, I'm up to send the image and it's already on it's way!

And that's one of the wonderful things about this card group ...

The super fun part of going to the mailbox and finding a surprise :)

Here's a final look:

Thanks for stopping by

and have a GREAT weekend!
