CTMH SOTM Blog Hop

Hello summer!!  and for me 90+ degrees!  Yuk!  But it is June and my flowers are doing wonderfully in the warm sunshine.  By August, though , they will look dreadful!  I hope you are enjoying the hop so far.  We have 55 Close to My Heart consultants participating this month, so be sure and check out everyone's art work.  

If you have been hopping along, then you have arrived from LeAnne's blog and have checked out her "bird-i-ful" cards!  Isn't this stamp set cute?!!

This month's set is S1206 Life is Tweet and is full of birdie ideas.  This set has 15 images and if you purchase it this month (along with the Stampaganza special!!) it is possible to buy it for $5.00!!

 Here is the artwork from Close to My Heart and a few images to inspire you.
So I set up my photo shoot in my butterfly garden and I laid on my belly to take the pictures!......  I am sure my neighbors thought I was nuts! :)

The inside of the card holds a gift card and all I did was add adhesive to the 3 sides of the cardstock.

I used my scraps from the Lucy paper pack and a few odds and ends so I guess this would qualify for a "Scrap Your Stash" project.  I wanted a basic design but I still had to add some "stuff" for me to like it. :)  I did NOT distress the card which is a huge challenge for me. :)

Here are the list of supplies:

X7149 Lucy paper pack - bits and pieces...
Colors of ink and cardstock...White Daisy, Lilac Mist, Blush, Sweet Leaf and Creme Brulee
Cricut cuts...Rectangle 5 with holes - 1.75" ....without holes - 1.25", Fringe flowers...2" and 3"
Z1725 - adhesive springs
Z1148 Pretty Pins (retired)

Now it is off to Annette Green's blog  where I can guarantee you will find more "bird-i-ful" artwork!

Be sure to check back for more ideas using this stamp set as well as the FREE stamps.... Don't forget you have to buy 2 first to get one free!

Enjoy!
