Happy Forever (July SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop which features the Happy Forever stamp set from Close To My Heart.  There are four absolutely adorable hedgehogs - one flying a kite, one with balloons, another with butterflies, and one just standing - along with three great sentiments.   

This 5"x7" card has a Chocolate cardstock base and uses a nice swirl patterned paper from the Topstitch paper packet along with some Heavenly Blue cardstock.  The image was stamped using Chocolate ink and color was added with colored pencils, with just a touch of pink in the hedgehog ears and on his belly, and a Bitty Sparkle on his nose.

If you have come here from Teri's 'The Midnight Artist' blog, you are on the right path! With almost 70 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs, you should be able to find lots of great creative ideas to use for your own projects.  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! 

Now "Hop" on over to Melissa's 'Stamp*Crop*Create' 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 Happy Forever stamp set is only available until the end of July.  Let me know if you would like to find out how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free.

If you get lost on the Blog Hop or find links that aren't working, there is a complete list of all participating blogs on Kathleen's 'Life's Like a Bowl of Stamps' blog.
