CTMH-- March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for March featuring Sensational Seasons!

All artwork on the hop will feature March's Sensational Seasons, a set of 10 stamps! If you have come here from Wanda's Blog you are on the right path.

This month we have  about 70 CTMH Consultants sharing their SOTM creations, and other great CTMH artwork. Hopping along is fun and simple to do - just click the link at the end of each blogger's post to move to the next one!  Be sure to leave some love (comments) along the way :)

Today I'd like to share with you part of my Event Calendar.  I just love this little calendar that CTMH has for us!  It is perfect to record all those important dates to remember like Birthdays and Anniversaries.  I keep mine in my office, next to my regular calendar.  My intent is to send out birthday cards to everyone whose name is on that little calendar, but I have not been very good at it lately :(

The April page features the Sophia paper pack and the March SOTM- Sensational Seasons.  I stamped the basket image in the Timber Brown Staz-on ink.  I then took the Blending pen and dipped it in the ink colors that I wanted to color in the Easter Eggs and then the basket.  This is actually the first time that I have successfully used my blending pen, so it was quite a thrill!  I can't believe how easy it was, and really don't know what I was doing wrong before.  I like this just as much as using the waterbrush :)  So if you are afraid to color with markers, give the Blending Pen a try :)

I took the Easter Eggs from this set and stamped them along the length of the calendar as well.  I write all names in pencil (you know, just in case....)

Supplies Used:
Sophia Level 2
Sensational Seasons
Timber Brown Staz-on ink
Blending Pen
Lagoon, Pear, Hollyhock, Goldrush, Chocolate inks
Event Calendar

Come back over the weekend to see January through March, as part of an It's All About the Green Blog Hop.  (March 5-6)
