Childhood Portraits

Well, I've been dying to play with the set and sometimes with me, it take something to force me to get things done. My daughter and son-in-law celebrated their 7th wedding anniversary yesterday so I decided to use this stamp set for their card. I combined it with the Grace paper pack and I jusy love the two together.
I used our Connections Club Half Pearls in the corners. Everything is CTMH except for the ribbon and the embroidery floss I used for the hand stitching.

Treasures - Sept. Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the CTMH September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. If you hopped along with us last month, you already know what phenomenal artwork you are in store for today.

If you came here from Donni's blog, then you are on the right path. If you just happened to start with mine, then you will want to check out the list of participants in the right column of this blog and start from the beginning. You won't want to miss a single piece of ART!

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!

This month's Stamp Set, Treasures, is just such a fantastic set. You can get this stamp set for 25%, 50%, 75% off or FREE, with a qualifying purchase. You will find this set a "Must Have" by the times you check out the fantastic artwork of all 71 Consultants in this blog hop.

For my card, I used the new paper pack called Twitterpatted. The colors in this paper are, Crystal Blue, Sweetleaf, Sorbet, and Chocolate. This is a great paper pack for your fall scrapbook pages, cards, or any other type of paper craft you might want to do.

The inks I used are Chocolate and Sorbet. The small pearls in the center of the flowers are from the half pearls that you can earn FREE with your filled Connections Club Card. See ME or your CTMH consultant for details on how you can get yours. I colored them with my Copic Marker to match.

The stitching around the card is all done by hand in my unique design with embroidery floss. I thought it sort of resembles the little seeds flying around from the dandelion flower. I have a passion for hand sewing.

Thanks for checking out my artwork. Stop back again soon.
Now it's time to hop on over to
Traci's Blog and see what great Eye Candy she has in store for you.
