Balloon Animals (February SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  For the month of February, the Balloon Animals stamp-of-the-month is one of the most adorable stamp sets ever.  It includes six different animals created using balloons, along with some fun sentiments and a frame.       

If you have come here from Living, Loving, Laughing for Life, you are on the right path!  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!  

Using the elephant from the Balloon Animals stamp set, this is a fun birthday card for a young person.  The patterned papers are from the Penelope kit, and some Shimmer Trim and Glitter Paper add a bit of pizzazz.  You may recognize the card design as Pattern #24 in Make It From Your Heart Volume 2.         

Place a $50 minimum order this month (February 2016) and you are eligible to purchase the Balloon Animals stamp set for only $5. It is also available for $17.95 without a qualifying purchase.  

Now "Hop" on over to Show and Tell, with Michelle to see her work.  Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting inspiration and other fun ideas. 

If you get lost along the way, the complete list of participants is available on Melinda's 'If You Bling It' blog.   

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
