August CTMH Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

All artwork on the hop will feature August's SOTM, "It's Your Day" a set of 26 stamps! If you have come here from Antoinette's Blog you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Jena's Blog and start from the beginning.

This month we have 64 CTMH Consultants sharing their SOTM creations, and other great CTMH artwork. Joining the hop is fun and simple to do - just click the link at the end of each blogger's post to move to the next one! If you get lost or a link doesn't work just click on the links in the list below... Here we go!

I designed this card from the Mojo Monday template this week. This was the first time for me joining in the Mojo Monday fun and for participating in the Blog Hop. Lots of first for me. I also have been wanting to use black in a card lately. I even accomplished that, too! I love that this card is more masculine and could be used as a party invitation, not just a birthday card. It makes this stamp of the month really versatile. Oh, and circles are the in thing these days, too.

Enchanted Paper Packet (featured colors are Garden Green and Smokey Plum)
Black cardstock
Black buttons
Black hemp fiber
Edge distresser
Sponge distresser

This is another card I made with the stamp of the month. The cake is a lot of fun.

Remember, the August SOTM is only available until August 31st, contact me to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!

Thanks for stopping by! Now "hop" on over to Jen's Blog to see her work! Or... click on the links below for ALL the bloggers participating in the hop:
