February SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for February!

All artwork on the hop will feature February's SOTM,"Piece of Cake", a set of 10 stamps! If you have come here from {Judy's blog}you are on the right track!  Click the link at the end of this post to continue on the hop and see more great artwork!  As an added bonus this month, I'll be randomly selecting one person to win BOTH of my blog hop cards! To be entered, just post a comment below. Receive a second entry if you sign up to be a follower of my blog! I'll draw a winner and post their name at 8 am, Feb 2.


Here is a photo of the stamp set, and some great artwork that can be seen here in the current Close To My Heart Idea Book!



Card 1: 4.25" x 5.5".  I used the *new* Topstitch paper, Togetherness stamps (for the faux stitching), Create a Shade Pearl Paint, and Spring Buttons.


Card 2: Size 4.25" x 5.5". This card is more simple than I usually do, but is part of my Valentine Workshop Fundraiser which you can read about here.  I used the That's Amore paper, and red stickles for the cherries.

I hope you enjoyed my cards! Don't forget to post a comment. One lucky poster will win both cards!!!

Now hop on over to {Kim's blog}! She is sure to inspire you with her incredible artwork!
