Chairs to You - CTMH May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to my Heart May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. Just when I thought winter would never end, we're into May already.

If you've come here from LeAnne's Blog, you're on the right track. However, if you just happened upon my blog, you can continue in the blog hop from here and when you get back to me again, you know you've seen them all. If you come across any broken links along the way, you can find the entire list here on Helen's Blog.

As soon as I saw this stamp set, I saw paper Piecing. There are so many possibilities.

My card today is 5" x 7" and made using the Sweetheart paper pack. I threw in a little Gypsy CS also since there are tiny flowers and hearts in that color in the background papers.

I paper pieced all three chairs. The pink chair has tiny pearls added.

The Happy Mother's Day is from "A Little Everything" Clear Stamp Set.

The Hand Stitching was done with White Embroidery Floss. I then added white Pearls in all of the corners.

I always like to finish off the insides of my cards. There is a little of the hand stitching there also in a very simple running stitch and matching cardstock and B&T papers.

In case you were at the Leadershare in Pennsylvania this Saturday, you would have seen this card in the Auction for the Operation Smile Charity. I'd love to hear from you if you won any of my cards in the auction.

Now hop on over to Wendy's Blog to see her gorgeous Eye candy.

And, please leave comments for all of us along the way. We love hearing from you and appreciate knowing how we're doing.
