Stampin' Addicts 2015 Occasions Catalog Blog Hop - From The Herd

Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts 2015 Occasions Catalog Blog Hop.  I have to say I really love this catalog it was hard to choose me favorite set but I must say that the LLama won me over. If you are following the order (Which you can find here), you have just come from Twila and Hey, Valentine (which is also one of my favorites) didn't she do a great job with that set?  I really loved what she did.

A few reasons why I like From the Herd:
1.  When I was working, I would give everyone birthday cards and we never had a stamp that said from all of us, so everyone had to sign it and sometimes some of the folks were not in so they didn't get to sign it and with the stamp it would have included everyone.  So I love the idea and the stamps.

2.  It has a Llama in it.  I know it is not stand alone, but it is a Llama.  There are a few of us that have been asking for a Llama for awhile and if you are a Stampin' Addicts fan you may know the Llama story if not click here to find out about it. Then there is the Llama, Llama, Duck song (WARNING WARNING do not click on it if you do not want to be singing it all day long).  

So those are the reasons I choose From the Herd for my Stamp Set.

I love the new Birthday Bash Paper as it is so bright and cheerful.  With this card I colored the animals with blendabilities.  I just love the bright colors and these animals really call for bright colors.
