Welcome to our February Blog Hop featuring artwork inspired by Love and Friendships. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do....by leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, plus I'm the first stop when hopping across Canada, East to West. If you came from Carol's Blog then you are in the right place!


For my project I choose to focus on Friendship.  I used the Gimme Some Sugar Paper collection, and the Chelsea Gardens cardmaking stamp set to create these 2 simple 4*4 cards.  I added some doodling to the blue plaid card, and decided to leave the images uncolored.  The pink card I added some banners. I was thinking about adding some bling, but decided I liked the simplicity of these cards.


Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Colleen.


If you get lost along the way,you can come back here for the complete list:

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. We hope you will join us again next month when we will be featuring What we love about Spring. So mark March 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.

This month we have approximately 25 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This 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!

I am really loving the Making Waves collection, and so I used 3 patterns from this collection, some purple gems and the Making Waves shimmer trim to complete this fun birthday card.  The card design comes from the New Edition of Make It From Your Heart, Volume 4.  It is card design # 12.  I used Peacock Ink to stamp the sentiment, the images are stamped in Willow and Pansy.  I fussy cut the flower and pieced it ontop.  The Banner is popped using 3D foam tape.






Now "Hop" on over to Wendy's blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the February SOTM is only available until February 28th!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!
