Happy Valentines- blog Hop


Welcome to another month (AND YEAR... Happy New Year!!!)  which of course means that Close To My Heart has another fantastic Stamp of the Month for you.

If you are coming from Lalia's blog- you are headed in the right direction.  If you are just joining the hop by starting here on my blog- no problem!  the hop circles around and ends back up here so you won't miss a thing!

First up... a reminder.  Our Stamp of the Month sets are only available for one month.  They retail for $17.95 but with a purchase of $50 or more... you can purchase them at a steep discount for only $5!

My artwork today was actually made by a great friend of mine!  We had a lot of illness in my house in December including right up to Christmas Eve... geesh.  So credit for this fantastic project goes to my friend Renea.  I put a few items in a ziploc bag with the stamp set and she did a drive by one day and picked it up from my garage... one day I got home and THIS was returned to my garage... FABULOUS!

front of the card- created with a 6x6 Kraft die-cut card and envelope set, color Ready seam binding and slate satin polka dot ribbon, silver glitz glitter gel, stella paper (the heart cut out and the light colored pattern that is stamped with "All My Heart".  Stamped images are of course from the January Stamp of the Month.
 close up of the flower image and all the glitz!  Yes... silver glitz on the slate polka dot ribbon.


Inside of the card- Oh yeah- Flirty paper also used on the front and inside!

AND last but not least:  The envelope!  A super cool sparkle flourish and stamped image to tie it all together.    I hope you agree that I am truly spoiled to have such a great friend willing to go to these lengths to lend a hand with my artwork this month!  I would LOVE to be able to share some comments with her so let me know what you think!
