A Little Everything SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the March Stamp of the Month (SOTM) Blog Hop.

This is a Round Robin blog hop, so no matter who's blog you start with, when you return to that same blog, you know you've been through them all. Just click on the person's name at the end of this post to take you to the next one.

Today we are featuring the set "A Little Everything". And as the name implies, it does have a little for every occasion. It has a variety of words that can be combined for various sentiments.

Although this set can be used alone, for my card today, I've teamed it up with the Stamp Set "Enjoy Every Moment".
Since I love flowers, this has been one of my favorite sets from the Spring Catalog. and thought the two worked perfect together.

The paper pack is from the Veranda Collection.
The Hand Stitching around the card was done with matching Embroidery Floss.
Now, hop on over to Dawn's Blog to see her fantastic Artwork and please leave each of us a little love along the way.

Piece of Cake - Truly Scrumptious Sketch Challenge

Even thought I'm a CTMH consultant, I'm not always thrilled over some of the Stamp of the Month's (SOTM) that I'm more or less forced to use. The February SOTM, however, is quite an exception. I didn't realize how much fun this set could be until I started playing with it.


Here I used a sketch from the Truly Scrumptious Sketch Challenge blog. What a cool sketch. Anyway, The card was fun to make and now, here I am ready to post it here as well as link it to the Truly Scrumptios blog and realized that I did not write down the extra challenge with the sketch of using buttons and bows, How could I have forgotten this? Well, it's too late to change it because it's been sold and out the door already.

The paper I used is from CTMH called Daydreaem and is  actually retired, but it went so perfectly with the birthday theme.
The stamp set, from CTMH, is called Piece of Cake and is the February Stamp of the Month.  If you scroll down or click here, you'll see the gift tags I made with this set.

The paper flower and leaves was made with punches and the Hand Stitching around the card was done with matching embroidery floss. 
Stickles was used on the cakes for sparkle.

Enjoy Every Moment - Mojo Monday 124

I normally post my sketch challenges on my other blog, but I'm the New DT Coordinator of the Sugar Babies over at The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge Blog, and needed to post that card over there this morning. Since this is a CTMH image, thought it best to post this here.


This card is using the Mojo Monday Sketch 124. Another GREAT sketch this week. And, as you know, I am addicted to sketches.

I think I'm also addicted to this stamp set from CTMH called Enjoy Every Moment. However, I really need to start creating with the other two images in the set. Maybe tomorrow!!!

The paper is from the Caboodle Paper Pack.
The embellishment below the pearls is one of the Tiny Tabs. They are metal, but I managed to cut off the bottom part so it looks like a flower on top of an image from the NEW stamp set called Cherished Flourishes.
It's probably hard to see, but there two of the larger flowers were stamped, colored and cut out then pop dotted for a 3D affect.

The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss
