Close to My Heart March SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! 

This month I am following {Michelle Stewart's Blog.}   We have over 60 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this month’s Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.   If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.      

The March Stamp of the Month is entitled Choose Happy (S1503) (Set of 14). Here is a picture of this stamp set:

Here is my card.

This stamp set has the cutest frames and so much fun to color in with our ShinHan markers.  The bear comes from the Nursery Charms My Acrylix Stamp Set.  In my mind, I saw this cute little bear looking out a window so I turned my frame into a window frame.  I grabbed my Scaredy Cat paper pack to use for my card.  That's right.  Halloween paper for a non-Halloween card.  I love how versatile our paper is.

The bear was just begging for a little love so out came the heart embossing folder.  There was room between the hearts  to stamp the sentiment.  The sentiments are so meaningful.  I hope to always choose happy!

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I would love for you to show me a little love by leaving me a comment and then please go to our next artist, {Melissa Robinson's Blog} and see what she has made with this adorable stamp set.
