Spring Cards for March Gatherings Using CTMH's Penelope Paper Packets

Marteena is the hostess for my March Gathering.  She selected two cards for her guests to make.  Spring is the theme and Penelope papers are featured this month.  My hostess likes to send birthday cards and she loved the sentiment, "Hello There".  These are the two cards I created, following two very talented CTMH Consultants, for Marteena's party.

You may decide to be the hostess for my next Gathering!  It's a great chance to spend time with your friends, do some papercrafting, and earn some free product to use for your passion!!  Leave me a comment or email me to get a spot on my Spring calendar to have your own party!  Let's see what we can do!!!

February 2016 Stamp of the Month Bloghop

Hello and welcome to the Stamp of the Month Bloghop featuring, "Balloon Animals".


This Bloghop features 40 participating, Close to My Heart consultants.  Each has created something to inspire you and give you ideas to use this month's SOTM.  You can begin the hop, which is a cycle through all the blogs, at any place.  Look for a link imbedded in each post for where to click.  You will be taken to the next person in the order.  In my case, you may have just been reading Dana Kessler's Blog.  When you have finished reading mine, go see Paige Dolecki's Blog.  Just keep jumping and you'll eventually get back to where you began.

I've created a young boy's birthday card using "Balloon Animals".  I saw the layout pattern on Pinterest by one of our CTMH consultants, Denise Elliot.  Here's what I did:

I used one sheet of B&T from the Charlotte Paper Pack, Whisper Cardstock, Sorbet Cardstock, White Daisy Cardstock, Black Cardstock, Honey Ink Pad, Black Ink pad, Whisper Thick Twine, Gold Sequins, 3L E-Z Dots Adhesive, and 3D Adhesive Tape.  Of course there is a standard card base under it all!

Don't miss the chance to buy this adorable stamp set during February.  Just click here to get yours from my online retail site.  When your purchase reaches $50 you can get it for $5.  Otherwise, it stands alone for $17.95.

Thanks for stopping by!  Nancy
