CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for February - Friendship

Welcome to the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for February - featuring the gorgeous stamp set "Friendship".

Along this month's Stamp of the Month hop you'll find dozens of fabulous creations using this stamp set - all brought to you by a very talented group of CTMH Consultants! If you've come here from Helen's Blog, you are on the right path. If this is your first stop on the hop, that will work too (just keep hopping till you get back here again)!

To continue along the hop, just follow the link at the end of each post to go to the next site. We hope that following the hop will give you lots of inspiration and ideas for using your "Friendship" stamp set, as well as the many other great CTMH products you'll see in each post.

I have two creations for you today!
My first offering is a 12" x 12" layout.  I used the stamp of the month set to stamp my background on the Heavenly Blue cardstock.  The rosettes were created by simply twisting grosgrain ribbon in circles onto a cardstock circle covered in adhesive.  And I added a fun border using our pearls adhesive gems - - I think the border draws attention to the pearls I am wearing in the photo!   The letters for my title were cut with my Cricut.   The layout design is from the Scrappiest Blog (Sketch #103).
Materials Used (all Close to My Heart):
Friendship acrylic stamp set (February 2011 Stamp of the Month)

My second creation today is a quick card I created using the leftover stamped cardstock I had after creating the layout above.  (Love to use up those scraps!!).  The card design is from the Cardabilities Blog Sketch #23.
