The Winner is......

This month we had a club challenge with PinkCloudScrappers and man did we have some great projects. The challenge was to show your American Pride and use Close To My Heart products primarily, other companies could be used a little. I had some wonderful artwork submitted and I'm so proud of my club members for really using what they had and showing inspiring me with their artwork. Great job to everyone.
Unfortunately there can be only one winner and it was a really hard choice, but this month's challenge winner is

I just adored her lay out that she did using the Blue Ribbon Paper and stickease stickers. Wonderful artwork Lorraine, and I'll be emailing you soon. I hope everyone has a very blessed and safe fourth of July.
Again thanks to everyone that joined in the fun and I look forward to the next club challenge.

CTMH " Happy Forever " Blog Hop

Welcome to another great month of artwork featuring Close To My Heart Consultants and July's stamp of the Month "Happy Forever". If you've just arrived from Carol's blog your on the right track and if not welcome and start hopping as it will loop back around.

This month is probably my favorite stamp of the month for this idea book. Happy Forever is adorable and I know this little guy will inspire many a cute projects. I have been wanting to do a Tri-Shutter folded cards and decided this would be an adorable paring.
I used the Splendor paper pack which seems to be a top pick of mine these days. Another stand by for me is the "State of Mind" stamp set I used for the sentiment in the middle. I'm constantly reaching for it. For my little hedgehog I stamped the image and colored him in with a chocolate watercolor pencil and blended with our blender pen...a true must have. For the lighter portions of his belly and face I added a touch of the sunflower water color pencil so when I blended it, it created a lighter shade. I also created the 3-D flowers but spritzed with water to give a more antiqued/crushed look. I really enjoyed making this card and can't wait to do another.
Now a bit of business...remember you can only get the stamp of the month during July. The retail price is $22.95, but if you place an order of $25, you can pick him up for 25% off, $50=50% off, $75=75% off and if you spend $100 you can take this little guy home for FREE!. Feel free to go to my website CLICK HERE .
Lucky you, it's time for the next exciting project from the talented Adeline. You have to check out her patriotic punked darn cute. Enjoy the hop and I look forward to seeing you next month.
