Come on over and look at the August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring the August Stamp of the Month, Something Splendid, a set of 13 stamps, that is only available during the month of August.

If you have arrived from Melissa Burch's Blog you are on the right path.  This month we have over 70 Close to My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the August Stamp of the Month and other great Close to My Heart products on their blogs.  Following the Blog Hop is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one.  So, here we go!

This is a fantastic stamp set.  I love it because you don't have to color the image in!  You stamp the outline stamp in and then you can stamp the inside the color you want it to be.  I could not decide whether to stamp the flowers purple or rusty red so I made two cards.  I did use some new product so you will also get a look at product that will be available for purchase on September 1st.
