Cards of Friendship - May SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the May Stamp of the Month blog hop!  If you're just starting out, or if you've arrived here from Debra's blog, you're in the right spot.  When you're done here, you'll hop along to Jill's blog and see what she has cooked  up for us this month.

I absolutely love this month's stamp set, Friendship Bouquet!  To show you just how much, I made two very different cards this month just by changing the colors I used.  First up, a beautiful sympathy card.

With a different sentiment, this would also make an elegant birthday or retirement card.  This is a 6"x6" kraft card, that I'm also entering in the Heart2Heart "April Showers Bring May Flowers" challenge and the Mojo Monday 239 challenge (round or square).  I used the following products:

Next, a completely different style for a thank you card.

This picture does not do this justice!  Some brighter colors, some faux stitching, and a fun adhesive spring make this a bright & cheery card.  I'm thinking this will be perfect for Teacher's Appreciation!

the spring in action!
I used the following items for this card:
 I'm also posting this one at the Heart2Heart "April Showers Bring May Flowers" challenge.

Make sure you read my previous post if you're looking for some fun for National Scrapbook Day - and you can participate even if you have other plans that day!  Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you again soon.  Now don't forget to hop along to Jill's blog!
