"Thoughtful Tidings" For February Blog Hop

Thanks for stopping by from Adeline Brill's Blog for February's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring "Thoughtful Tidings".  This sentiment stamp set has 11 "thoughtful" images.  Best of all, six of the eleven images coordinate with CTMH's Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.  Even better, the stamp set is part of the all-new Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book!!
This month I'm so excited to feature the stunning work of one of my Scrapi sisters and friends, Maureen Sherrill.  I'm trying to convince Maureen to set up her blog so everyone can see the fabulous cards and projects she creates.  I think once she sees all the great comments for this gorgeous and innovative "Easel Card" using the new Lucy Paper Packet, I might be able to persuade her!

I just love this and I know you will too!!

Here are Maureen's instructions:
Basic card: cut 2
- 4 1/4 x 11 inches, scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2 inches and fold
- 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches, attach this to the bigger

From CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy:
Hearts, page 26, cut at 3 3/4, 3 1/2 and 3 1/4 with the smallest at 2 inches
Flowers, page 68, cut at 2 3/4 and 3 inches.
Heart, page 69, cut at 2 inches

The card also features the NEW Bitty Buds Assortment and the versatile Sweet Leaf Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon.

Following is a picture of the complete stamp set (S1292), yours for only $5 with a $50 order.  Or, it's available at it's regular price of $17.95.  If you simply cannot wait another minute to get a copy for yourself, click here.
