July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

Welcome once a again to this month's CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring one of my favorite stamp sets of all time "Happy Forever" This cute stamp set features images of the most darling little hedge hog I have ever seen!

If you have come to my blog by way of Adeline's Blog, you are on the right track and if you just happened by my blog, you can start here and continue on as this is a "circle" hop and you will eventually see all of the creative ideas of over 70 CTMH consultants using this set.

I created two cards this month to showcase this stamp set

The first is a "onsie" card made from a tutorial found here that I have fallen in love with...I have made a whole slew of onsies as of late and decided to make one more featuring a little girl hedgie. (Notice I added a ribbon to her hair and some eyelashes) So fun. I used my nesties for the edging on the collar and the leg openings and brads for the snaps. Colors are garden green and chocolate. Sentiments for this one are computer generated.

The second card I made way back in April for my daughters Birthday and I couldn't help but ink this stamp set up! I used CTMH's "Cherry-O" paper and some tulip embelishments included in the WOTG. I paper pieced the balloons and colored the hedgie with colored pencil. Used some liquid glass and embroidry floss for the finishing touches.

That's it for me this month, but make sure to hop on over to Michelle's Blog to continue on this creative journey.

I'm heading to Washington DC in one week for my first ever CTMH Convention, so make sure you check back next week (starting Wednesday) for daily updates and to share in my excitement. I plan to post each day, so join me! If you need anything while I'm gone, you can go to my CTMH website here to order and have your product sent directly to you!

Talk to you all soon and have fun on the hop!!
