CTMH--- February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for February 2012, featuring Thoughtful Tidings!

All artwork on the hop will feature Thoughtful Tidings!  This is a set of 11 stamps, perfect for creating cards, recording dates on layouts and more!   If you have come here from Gina's Blog you are on the right path.

This month we have  over 50 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 have created a Valentine Card for the kids to give to Daddy.  
I used the new paper pack VICTORY and of course Art Philosophy to cut my circles. 
I used my cuttlebug to create a houndstooth pattern on the Chocolate Cardstock, then sanded it a little.  I also sanded the rest of the Chocolate cardstock edges to distress.  I used a couple of our new DURABLES square stud embellishments in pewter- which are so cool because they are self adhesive :) 
"We Love You" is from the February SOTM and "DAD" is from the Bingo Alphabet set. 

This Stamp Of The Month set:  Thoughtful Tidings, can be yours two ways:
Purchase it for $17.95 OR
Spend $50 and get it for only $5

Make sure you get this fabulous set before 2/29/12!

I just know you are going to see some amazing, and very versatile projects along this hop!!!! Now hop on over to TRACI'S Blog  to see what she has created for you!
