Friendship Card Using CTMH Huntington Paper and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

DT Project For Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #78- End of Summer
Hello all you wonderful crafters!  It is another beautiful, hot and humid day in Southern CA.  LOL!!  It is rarely humid here; but has been for a couple days now.  I will be happy when the cooler weather arrives.  I love the summer with everything green and beautiful; but I can't get out and enjoy it when it is 90-100 degrees every day.  I hope some of you have cooler weather and can get outdoors for some fresh air.
We have divided into two teams and this is the first week for Team Tammy.  Next week will be Team Marc.   It is time for another fabulous challenge at Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #78- End of Summer.  This one should be a really easy one for all of you.  I was so happy to see so many fabulous entries into last weeks challenge and hope many of you will do it again this week!  We love to see your creations and give away fabulous prizes.  This week's sponsors are Delicious Doodles and QKR Stampede.  If you would like to win a spot as a Guest Designer; please add GDT behind your name when you enter the challenge.  You will have a lot of fun; so take a chance and go for it.
CTMH is celebrating National Stamping Month with a fabulous set of 3 - "D size" stamp sets for only $10 with every $50 purchased.  One page is sentiments, one page is images with some die cuts from Cricut Art Philosophy and one page of  the alphabet and numbers.  Retail value is $47.90.  You can't go wrong with this fabulous special. 
I have created a YouTube video demonstrating 4 different cards I created with this adorable stamp set.  Please check out my YouTube Channel for more videos I have created.
I chose a gorgeous frame from Delicious Doodles Pansy & Butterfly; which I absolutely love.   I used the new CTMH Huntington Paper Packet; which is so beautiful and full of fabulous colors for fall.  I love it!!  The sentiments inside and outside are from CTMH You Are My Happy - the September National Stamping Special as are the two birds and the heart images.
