Welcome to the April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

Happy Spring!  Welcome to April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  If you have been hopping along with us, then you have arrived from Sheila's blog here.

Don't worry if you get lost you can always find the list of participants on Melinda's blog here.

This month's stamp set is so 'retro' - I love it!  It is S1504 Typed Note  and is perfect for your card sentiments.

Since I am not typically a card maker, I always try to think outside the box for a scrapbook layout.  The first step I take is to look for ideas from others.  These are the two creations from Close to My Heart.  The first one is a card

The second one is a pack of playing cards.

But I was unable to be inspired by anything else besides a card!  So I dug into my Basics collection of paper and created this 'manly' look Father's Day card. My husband collects vintage audio items and this old radio was a perfect backdrop for my picture.  Two strips of shimmer trim for an added accent and it is done!

Now it is off to Michelle's blog here to check out her awesome artwork.
