12/31 CTMH SOTM Blog Hop

Well it is almost the end of 2010 and another year comes to a close. I had many ups and downs this year - but I was finally able to accomplish one of my 2010 goals - to make a "You Tube" video. So if you have been hoppin' along with us this time, you have arrived from Doreen's blog and have been inspired by her creativity! If you started with my blog, then just follow the links or go to Helen's blog where she has a complete list of all of the CTMH consultants participating in the hop.

Great job on the card and video. THanks for the tips about inking the stamp and heat embossing from the back. I never thought about that before.
