SOTM Bloghop for February 2014

Hello Bloggers and welcome to my page of the SOTM Bloghop!

This month we are featuring "Wild About Love", a set of nine stamps.  It is adorable and very current with indeed, do I dare say it, the Utube sensation, "What Does the Fox Say?"  I love that it lends itself to Valentine's Day.

This Bloghop features 50+ participating Close to My Heart Consultants.  You may have just seen the amazing art that Susan Brooks did on her blog.  No matter where you start, it is one big loop and you will make your way around and back to your starting point.  When you are ready you will hop on over to   Teresa Scrivens'  blog to see her wonderful creation.  If you get lost along the way, Click here to get a complete list of the bloggers so you can find your place.

I made a greeting card that may be used for Valentine's Day or anytime you want to tell someone that you love them.  My Nana used to ask me if I thought she was a "foxy" grandma.  This would have been perfect to send her following that question!  

The products I used are all CTMH from our newest Idea Book, Spring/Summer 2014:

Lollydoodle Paper Pack
Cotton Candy CS
Slate CS
White Daisy CS
Sorbet Ink Pad
Cotton Candy Ink Pad

The February SOTM is only available between February 1 and 28.  You can order it and any of the new product at my retail site or with your consultant.  Click here to order now.
