Peachy Keen Alumni Blog Hop

 Good morning!  Welcome to The Peachy Keen Alumni That's What Friends Are For Blog Hop!  If you arrived here from the super talented Janice Wilson's Blog, then you are on the right track, but if you just happened along, you will want to go back and start from the beginning at The Peachy Keen Stamps Blog so that you won't miss one awesome creation or any of the details about how to win one of the fabulous prizes of $20, $30, and $50 gift certificates to The Peachy Keen Stamps Store!  There will be three of our designer (we don't know which ones) that will give away one of the above gift certificates.  Just leave a comment on each blog on this hop and end with a comment on the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog to be eligible to win.

For my card today, I went with our That's What Friends Are For theme.  This sweet little salt and pepper shaker stamp is part of the newly released  We Go  Together stamp set at Peachy Keen Stamps.   It's also pretty perfect for today, because my sweet hubby and I are celebrating our 29th year of wedded bliss!  Gee!  How did that happen and where did almost 30 years go?  I guess it's true that time flies when you're having fun!  Anyway, this card works great for both our blog hop, and my anniversary.  I hope you like it.
 The stamp set, as I mentioned is new from Peachy Keen Stamps, as is the beautiful patterned paper, card stock, and button embellishment.  Those are all part of the May Peachy Picks Kit, which I dearly LOVE!!
 Here's a closer look at the sparkle I added to the salt and pepper shakers using Martha Stewart glitter glue and glitter.  The picture doesn't nearly do it justice.  The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo black, and London Fog ink, and colored with Copic Markers.  The doily is a new die from Stampin' Up!.

Your next stop will end this hop and take you back to The Peachy Keen Stamps Blog.  Be sure to leave a comment there letting us know you completed the hop.  Thanks so much for joining us!!  Hope you had fun and enjoyed all the wonderful creations from our Peachy Keen Alumni Designers!  Below is a list of all the stops along this hop, should you happen to get lost along the way.   Wishing you a joyous day and happy stamping!
