CTMH May SOTM Blog Hop

Well, here we are, another month into the year and it's time for another Close to my Heart Blog Hop.
Not only does this kick off a new month, but also a NEW CATALOG!!! 

If you have been following the blog hop from the beginning, then you should have come here from  Kathleen's Blog . If you just came across this hop by chance, then you can continue from here and just click on the person listed at the end of this post.  When you get back to me you know you've seen them all.
If you'd like to start from the beginning, please go to Helen's Blog and start there.


My card today uses the May Stamp of the Month, Cherish the Moment. This set comes with a total of 8 stamps.

I used the one that say Happy Birthday. I stamped it in Chocolate ink and then used clear detail embossing powder on top to make it stand out more. I also colored a small half pearl with my brown Copic Marker and placed it on the image to mark the box that says "Young at heart".

The papers used are form the NEW Cherry-O, Creative basics pack. It even comes with a roll of this yummy velvet ribbon.

The hand stitching around the card was done with Blush Embroidery Floss.

The flowers and ferns were punched from various punches and the border punch is MS.
The sketch Challenge #16 is from The Pixie Cottage.

Now, hop on over to Katy Donaldson's Blog for more fabulous eye candy!

Nancy, Your card is so inspiring!! When I grow up, I want my artwork to look just like yours! When I was a kid, Loretta Young was my favorite actress. I thought she was so beautiful and I wanted to look just like her when I grew up! So, you know that this is a supreme compliment! :-)
