SOTM Bloghop For October 2013

Hello and welcome to our SOTM Bloghop!
 This month we are featuring the October SOTM called "Scandanavian Wishes", a set of 12 images.

The Bloghop has over 50 participating, CTMH consultants this month.  You may have arrived here from Michelle Stewart's blog.  It is one big circle so you will be directed to the next hopper later in this post.  If for some reason you get lost, there is a complete list of the participating consultants at
I have been so excited to use this stamp because I am Scandinavian.  I grew up seeing these images because of my 100% Swedish aunts.  Aunt Lilly still lived there and often sent us gifts, especially the orange horses.  I didn't make the horses that color in my art so don't try to find them!  Just know that they are traditionally orange.

I have designed a Christmas card this month.  It will be fun to send to my Swedish cousins here in the US.


Products I used for my super, easy card:

Red Shimmer Trim
Ruby Chevron Ribbon
Bitty Sparkles
Sparkles - Clear Assortment
Base & Bling Floral Accents
Juniper Stamp Pad
Ruby Stamp Pad
Ruby Cardstock 
Cricut Cartridge - Art Philosophy
Tombow Adhesive

Scandanavian Wishes is available only in the month of October.  Click here to find out how you can get yours for just $5.  Now it's time to send you to Connie Walsh' Blog to see how she used the SOTM.
Thanks for hopping by my blog!  Nancy

Card Kits for September 2013

I have been watching the trees these past few days and wondering when they will start turning colors.  I love summer and really don't want to see the green go away, but it must to have all the seasons.  But I feel relieved when I don't notice any orange yet!!  (Hey,I am just being honest.  Trying to keep it "real".)

But even though I am not excited to end summer, I am getting ready for our first, autumn holiday - Halloween.  I created one "Spooky" card just for that occasion.  When you see it you will see the comedy in the word, "spooky" because it is everything except spooky!  And for folks that don't celebrate Halloween, I have some really cute cards about the fall season.

As you can see, I've been busy getting ready to bless my friends and family with Autumn cards.  I hope you will enjoy making these cards for loved ones, too.

Thanks for stopping by!  Nancy
