Thank you… now on to our hop! 

If you have just hopped onto my blog then you are at the beginning of the blog hop when hopping from East to West Coast. If you came from Candra's Blog then you are in the right place! 

I created these 3 cards as part of my Christmas Card Buffet, and I'm sorry I will update in the morning with details.  I'm not myself this past week since I'm working through a pinched sciatic nerve. We were suppose to go live on the 15th, but I was a complete right off, and even though I am better than I was a week ago, I'm still not well.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Arlene.
 If you get lost along the way, you can come right back here as I have posted the lineup:

  1. Michelle YOU ARE HERE
  2. Arlene
  3. Michelle
  4. Alyson
  5. Donna
  6. Corinna
  7. Candra
Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. We hope you will join us again next month when we will be featuring projects created using our Colour of the Year, Seaglass.  So mark November 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.

New Year's Cheer SOTM Blog Hop - November

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  

We will be featuring November's SOTM, which is New Year's Cheer, a set of 13 stamps.  If you have come here from Jen Rubio's Blog, you are on the right path! 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 on Melinda’s Blog

This month we have approximately 26 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

This first card is using paper from the Jeepers Creepers collection, and gold Shimmer Trim.  I heat embossed Cheers directly onto the patterned paper, and the champagne flutes and bow are heat embossed onto White Daisy cardstock before being adhered to the card.  All heat embossing is done in Gold.

For my second card I again used the Jeepers Creepers collection, the sentiment is stamped in Pansy along with the firework bursts.  I matted the sentiment on Silver Glitter paper, and made the flags from the Jeepers Creepers line.

Now "Hop" on over to Cat's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the <month> SOTM is only available until <last day of the month>!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!
