04/30 CTMH May SOM Blog Hop

OMG - I give up! Where did the month of April go?....... Can you believe it is time for another SOM blog hop? So if you have arrived from Dawn's blog, I bet you have been busy hopping from blog to blog! Well do not give up - you have another one to hop to (besides mine, that is....) This month's stamp set is perfect for that last minute card or gift tag! SO here is my 'last minute" birthday card for a male friend or relative!



I incorporated two other challenges in this card and I am feeling pretty special at this moment!

The first one is the Mojo Monday ... here is the sketch


I changed it slightly so it is not a perfect representation of the sketch - but I still like it!

The second challenge is from our very own CTMH Heart 2 Heart challenge is which we had to use at least 2 ribbons on our project. So I dug out my container with a bunch of retired ribbon rounds and found that I like the color of New England Ivy better with the colors of the new paper pack - X7126 Passages. So I added 3 ribbon strips instead of 2!

Supplies:
X7126 Passage paper pack
D1421 Cherish the Moment stamp set
New England Ivy ribbon (retired)
Z1047 "C" from the Simple Alphabet - uppercase
Z1146 - Pewter brads
Brown Bag ink



Now hop on over to Helen's blog where you will find a list of everyone who is participating in the blog hop this month!

Enjoy!
