Welcome to the Stampin With Friends Blog Hop.

Screen Shot 2023-01-16 at 5.58.05 AM

We are a group of Demonstrators from around the world that love to Create and share what we do. Twice a month, we blog together with a given theme.  The theme for this Blog Hop  is Retiring Annual Catalog.  Wow what do you show?  I actually never blogged about this card,  It uses the Elephant Parade Bundle.  At the time of writing this Blog, the product was available.  This is so adorable and it was one of the first bundles that I played with.  You can use it for a welcome Baby Card or even a Baby Birthday card.  Here is my card.  The supplies will be listed below.   There are so many things in this card that are retiring.

Here are the measurements.
