Mad About the December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

If you have found yourself here from Judy Burger's Blog, then you are in the right place. This month we have about 55 Close to My Heart Consultants for the December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.

The December Stamp of the Month is entitled Mad about You (Set of 14). See some examples below showing what you can do with this stamp set.
And here are the stamps.

Since I became a Close to My Heart Consultant, the December Stamp of the Month has been a Valentine or “Love” stamp set.  Can I tell you how well that works for me because my Wedding Anniversary is on December 1st!  This year my husband, Dave, and I are marking 11 years.  Dave had a complete knee replacement surgery on November 15th, so we will be taking it easy this year.  He loves Cracker Barrell, so that will probably be our big excursion – on the way to his Physical Therapy session.  Here is my anniversary card for this year..
Can you believe that this is the first time that I used the Sonoma Paper Pack?  I am so ashamed.  LOL  Honestly, our paper packs are so gorgeous this catalog that I love all of them.  I “borrowed” this card pattern from here.  I think that I like the card I “copied” better but this card came out pretty well.  I will tell you that I cannot seem to get a good picture of this card and that it is prettier in person.

Here are the details on my card.  The main image, the heart, is embossed with clear embossing powder over Smokey Plum Ink.  The pretty little flower from our Heirloom Assortment was almost Smokey Plum, but not enough, so I painted it with Liquid Glass colored with Smokey Plum Reinker and let it dry overnight.  Then I put a Sparkle in the middle.
