January Blog Hop!

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR 2010 EVERYONE!! I hope you all have a WONDERFUL year, and I look forward to sharing it with you! Now, onto what you have all been waiting for, the FIRST Stamp of the Month for 2010!

This month's SOTM is called True Friends (D1406) and it is an amazing set of 11 stamps. I hope you'll hop along with us. I cannot wait to see all of the artwork created by my incredibly talented Close to My Heart "sistahs" as we like to call ourselves!

When you're done here, the next stop is Krista Ritskes' Blog, and don't forget to keep hopping! You won't want to miss all the artwork created. So many different ideas all made with the SAME stamp set!
I have created this card, and a cute little tag for a gift box:

For the card, I used a pattern from our "How-To" cardmaking book, "Wishes". The pattern can be found on page 78 and is titled "Sentiment Secured".
To create these items I used the following products:
D1406- True Friends
X7119B- Veranda Home Level 2 Paper Packet (I'm LOVING ALL the new paper packs)
1244- Garden Gree CS
X5642- Cocoa CS
Z2114- Cocoa Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
Z2120- Garden Green Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
Z2165- Juniper Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
Z1206- Craft Buttons, Basic
3364- DMC Embroidery Floss
Be sure to continue hopping! I know you won't be disappointed! And don't be afraid to leave comments of the work you see! We all LOVE feedback!
