February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog and the February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  If you have come from Jeanie's Blog,  then you are on the right track.  To see all of the hoppers participating in the hop, check HERE.

A Happy Hello (S1502) is the February Stamp of the Month. This is a set of 15 stamps and can only be ordered during the month of February.

The two cards above were made using the Brushed Paper Pack, found on page 99 of the Annual Inspirations Idea Book.  I love those colors together.  When I make cards, I usually use the smaller patterned papers and save the big bold papers for layouts.  I popped up the top flower on the left card as well as the center of the right card.  Did you notice the piece of Glitter Paper?  It's from the Teal Collection.  And of course I had to use those cute little Junebug Puffies found on page 35 of the Seasonal Expressions.

Now hop on over to Tina's Blog to see the beautiful work she has created.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Enjoy the hop!

CAS Heart 2Heart Challenge

Thought I would give a try to a challenge again this month.  Over at Heart 2 Heart, they have a Clean And Simple Challenge for this week.  I used Ruby Cardstock and Ink for this card.  As well as Black and of course White Daisy. I sponged the edges of the Ruby squares and heart with Whisper Ink.  The heart is also popped out with a Foam Square.  All papers, stampset and inks are Close To My Heart.  The Stamp Set is D1571, Sweet and Lovely from the Cricut Artbooking Collection.

Go on over to Heart 2 Heart and try their challenges.  I plan on doing more!

Thanks for looking
