May SOTM Blog Hop "Chairs To You"

Thanks for stopping by from the amazing Lisa Sargent's Blog to check out my artwork using this month's Stamp of the Month "Chairs To You". The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here.

This month we have over 50 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM, as shown below, and other great CTMH products on their blogs.

Now, on to my artwork . . . I loved the messages from this stamp set which went perfectly with some recent shots I took of my daughter Haley, showing off her fun new Spring "Justice" outfit!  I used the versatile Mayberry Papers and coordinating cardstock, Mayberry Stickease border, Cocoa Ribbon Collection, Scallop punch (for flower and border), Just Blooms Paper Flowers, Green Assortment Buttons, Colonial White Waxy Flax, Mocha Opaques, and Cocoa, Creme Brulee, and Cotton Candy inks - all fabulous CTMH products.  I used my fav stamping technique - rock 'n roll stamping - to create some of the images! 

I hope you like it and I'd really appreciate you taking the time to not only comment on my page but to become one of my followers!!

Now, hop on over to Karen Fullam's Blog for her beautiful creation!  Thanks for coming!!!

A Super Classy Thank You

Look at this gorgeous and classy thank you card that was given to me by the FABULOUS Michelle Auten, one my Scrapi Sisters and Let's Get Fancy Teammate! Love the random stamping technique and the color combo is perfect.  The paper piercing really adds the special touch.
