Today kicks off our new series:
Our Favorite Blog Friends

I am so excited to do this because over the next several weeks you will be introduced to the 3GJ Design Team's Favorite Blog Friends.   Each Designer has asked their favorite friend to be a part of our team for the day- and I'll admit- I'm pretty impressed with their choices!

Today I get to introduce you to my Favorite Blog Friend:

Sarah's was one of the first blogs that I started following when I started my crafty journey almost 2 years ago.  Her blog actually inspired me to start my own!
She is the owner/designer of Pink by Design Stamps-- which I LOVE!  
(No wonder you see them on my projects all the time- right!?!)
After a few months of following her blog and facebook I was shocked to find out that we live only 25 miles away from each other!
Have you ever met someone and just knew that you were supposed to be friends?
I have been on the Pink by Design team during most of 2012 and although my time on the team will soon be ending, I know our friendship will continue for years!

OK- enough mushy girl love.....

Sarah made a fabulous card to share with all of you today!

Here's what Sarah had to say:

Hi everyone, I am so excited to be guest designing for 3 Girl JAM today! They have FAB-U-LOUS ribbon and I always find myself reaching for it!
For my card today, I used DCWV card stock, Pink by Design stamps, and of course 3 Girl JAM ribbon in white. To me, this is probably the BEST combination ever! DCWV, 3GJ & PBD- you can't go wrong!
Thanks for taking a look at my project today, and a special thanks to Julie for asking me to guest design today!!
Thank You Sarah!  We are honored to have with us today!

To kick off our Guest Designer Series I'm going to do a little giveaway!
One lucky follower will win a bundle of 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon and the Pink by Design: Days Like This stamp set!!

Please comment below and let me know who YOUR Favorite Blog Friend is- and then-
use the Inlinkz and link up your own blog as well as your friend.
Let's all spread the love and make new friends today!

(Winner will be announced on Sunday 12/16/12)
