Friends Make Everything Better

As these little critters will attest, doing something together makes the time go past quickly and happily.  Crafter's Companion Challenge blog has a new challenge this month, and a fantastic giveaway!  The theme for October is Friendship, and the prize to one lucky random winner is Six of their soon-to-be-released Humphrey the Elephant Stamp sets, with a mini-storage binder and a set of the mini panels to put them into!!!

Cute Companions Wishing Line
 When I found this stamp set in my drawer, it hadn't even been placed onto EZ Mount yet, so this card is its maiden voyage, so to speak.  And now that it's ink-ready, I don't think I'll let it sit idle for very long.  I love the way the stamps ink up and print images, clear and sharp.  This set is from the Cute Companions collection called Wishing Line by Jayne Nestorenko.
As soon as I stamped and colored the images, I knew they would work well with a step-fold card, in order to bring out all the dimension from each and every image.  I used CTMH patterned papers for the backgrounds, and colored my images with Copics.  I love the scene that I created with this type of card, and right now I don't plan on giving it out to anyone, but I want to keep it and display it for awhile.  I don't know whether to frame it or to stand it up on a table, it looks great both ways!
Be sure to check out the Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog for your chance to win the October prize.  Happy Crafting!!
