Whimisical Wishes

Hope you are enjoying your week! I honestly don't know where it has gone. It seems our impending move is consuming a little more time than I would like and we haven't even looked for a house yet *lol*. It's been 4 years since we moved--I am both sad and excited. A new adventure awaits the Miles family.

So by now I am sure many of you know that Kim Hughes has moved onto new pastures and is no longer working with CHF. While I am going to really miss her beautiful, fun, fresh illustrations I wish her all the best in her new endeavours. Of course, you may have also heard that she still has a few more releases in store. I certainly, in my TOTAL fan like behaviour, plan to purchase her future sets just so that I can squeeze some more Kim lovin' out of them.

I just received my Forest Friendzy set (yes...I know, last month's release!) and had such a fun time playing with this set. Who doesn't love this Gnomy!? I must admit I am not a gnome kind of girl but Kim has persuaded me otherwise. I couldn't resist making him a festive gnome after I saw Jennifer Roach's example HERE.





Supplies

Cardstock: Stamper's Select White by PTI
Patterned Paper: Jenni Bowlin, October Afternoon

Enjoy a fun filled Thursday! I hope to be back again soon.
