Close to My Heart: March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring March's Stamp of the Month, which is "D1454 Sensational Season," a set of adorable images and sentiments great for both cards and pages too just in time for Easter cards too!

If you have come here from Kami's blog, you are on the right path! When you reach the end of my post you will continue hopping along from the link posted for you.

We have another amazing group of Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's Stamp of the Month and other great Close to My Heart products on their blogs. Hopping along with us is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

Once you finish hopping along, go take a look at the online Idea Book on my Close to My Heart website:  Then, let me know if you need your own copy of this great new Idea Book or you can place an online order for any of the great scrapbooking and stamping supplies featured in our blog hop.

This is my project for our hop, a standard-size top-fold card based on the Lucky Three pattern from the "Originals" cardmaking how-to pattern book from Close to My Heart's own Jeanette Lynton :

Project Supplies:
Stamps: D1454 Sensational Season, March's Stamp of the Month

Happy Presidents' Day!

No artwork here today, just a slice of everyday life. Here's hoping some folks are enjoying a day off in honor of Presidents' Day.

The holiday weekend came in handy for us when we had a dishwasher emergency where dear hubby discovered it was leaking quite a bit. So, off to the local furniture store to pick out a pretty new Maytag for the kitchen during a sale going on for the weekend.

Now I know first-hand that a little dish washing by hand never hurt me as a kid, but you should hear my girls protest during this difficult time! LOL I was more than happy to tell them how I was an only who had the distinct displeasure of being the sole dishwasher in our household for many years.

Here is what the new one looks like:

Hopefully our girls' poor hands will survive the wait for this beauty to be delivered later this week!

Have a Sweetheart of a Party!

I can hardly believe that February is more than half gone!

We had a lovely Valentine's Day in our household.  I hope you did too!

This is just a quick fun birthday party invitation I made at the request of my daughter for her Sweet 16 birthday party that she shared with two of her friends.

It uses the pretty new Sweetheart Level 2 kit paired with the new C1438 Tea Time stamp set and the super cute D1407 Piece of Cake stamp set too.

I hope you find the cute new scrapbooking and stamping supplies in the Spring/Summer 2011 Idea Book just as scrumptious as I do. 

Keep warm and enjoy your own "sweetheart" of a day by browsing the new Idea Book online on my website.  Browse the great deals found in the "While Supplies Last" section too.
