Isn't life better when it is shared with someone?  Friends and family make the good times better, but when things get tough it sure helps to have someone to count on to get through those times together, doesn't it?

It's Monday, and time for a new featured stamp set of the week.  This week, I'm going to be sharing cards made with the sweet Count on Me stamp set.

If you have been looking for a stamp set that has several sentiments filled with support and encouragement, this is the one!  And you get the added bonus of several cute little furry friends to help you share your messages of love and support.  They are sure to put a smile on anyone's face.

The darker "black" bear on the left, is called Graph because he was colored with the Dark Graphite Gray and Light Basic Black Stampin' Blends.  He is going to give his friend, Poppy, his Poppy Parade heart to let her know that he will be always there for her.

Poppy was made with the same stamp as Graph, but just mirrored.  If you would like to know how to do the Mirror Technique, I provide directions in the FREE TUTORIAL that you can download.

These two friends have some other friends that are waiting their turn to also provide love and support for Graph and Poppy.

Cajun the Fox, and Smoke and Slate the Kuala friends are waiting on the inside of the card to share their encouragement.

Cajun the Fox is waiting patiently in the bushes watching the butterflies.  His bushes were made using a portion of the small tree from the Tulip Fields Stamp Set.  He said he needed to be a Cajun Craze Fox, but since I didn't have Cajun Craze Stampin' Blends, I "mixed" my own colors using Pumpkin Pie and SU600 from the new Neutrals Medium Combo.  Cajun thinks I need to go buy the Cajun Craze Blends so it matches his name, but I think he just needs to be quiet and be happy he's included in the card so he can pass along his message to Graph and Poppy.  He wants to tell them "Through thick and thin, COUNT ME IN."

Smoke and Slate were colored with, you guessed it, Smokey Slate Stampin' Blends.  They want to make sure Graph and Poppy know that no matter what, they are here for them, too.  

This fun fold was shared with us by my Stampin' Up Leader, Jackie Bolhuis, at the Creativate Retreat in January.  It is super easy but gives a great WOW doesn't it!  It provides lots of opportunities for cute images and meaningful messages.  All directions and cutting dimensions are in the tutorial if you would like to try it.
