December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring December's SOTM, which is Amore, a set of 13 stamps.
If you have come here from Wendy'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 a complete list of participating consultants on Helen's Blog.

This month we have over 60 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs.  This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of each post on each blog to move to the next one.  Here we go!

My card for this stamp set was inspired by the Heart 2 Heart Challenge for this week.  The challenge for this week is this sketch:
If you haven't checked out the H2H Challenges, you should do so!  They offer a different challenge each week and sometimes offer goodies for a lucky participant!

Here is my card:

I used Sky ink and did some random stamping with the Love stamp.  The large heart was stamped in Pacifica ink and then cut out.  I also inked the edges of all the Colonial White pieces with Cocoa ink.

Products used:
Paper - Cocoa CS, Colonial White CS, Magnifique
Stamp Set - Amore
Ink - Cocoa, Pacifica, Sky
Embellishment - Mocha Opaques

Now "Hop" on over to Kathleen's Blog to see her work!  Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas!  Remember, the December SOTM is only available until December 31.  Visit my website to see how you can get this stamp set for FREE!

Happy Hopping!

Heart 2 Heart Challenge - Pretty Pretty Princess

Last week Heart 2 Heart Challenges had a Pretty Pretty Princess challenge - this challenge was all about being girly!  Well, believe me, I can do girly! 

These photos were taken of my daughter last year.  She loves to put on my shoes and walk around the house.  I was shocked that she was able to stay upright in these boots! 

The bling makes it a little difficult to get a good photo - I'll keep trying and repost them if I get a better shot.

 The top photo says "Kickin It Mommy Style" and the bottom has her nickname "Teagie Sue".

Supply List:
B&T: Hooligans, Daydream
Cardstock: Black Gypsy
Embellishments: Clear Sparkles, Pink & Purple Sparkles, Paper Studio Flowers, Crystal Letters

Have a great day!
