m Priscilla, and I'm delighted you decided to view the hop today.   The artwork created by the participating consultants will give you an idea of what can be created with this paper kit & stamp set.  You've arrived here from Darly's blog.  If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop or see the list of participants visit Melinda's blog.

Flowers created from the Happy Times exclusive stamp set by Close to My Heart (CC1064)




Fast & simple single page layout.  This layout is easy to pull together in under an hour.  I weighted the lower right side of the page because the foiled pink paper on the left is so gorgeous that I could not cover it up.  I plan to put this in a frame with a picture of my Mother from this upcoming Mother's Day.

The inside I placed fussy cut roses inside, but left the sentiment blank, since I feel this card can be used for many occasions. 


 I shaped and added pop dots to the banner for dimension. 


For me I usually am very critical of the cards I make as I see all the flaws.  I happen to really like this card which is a surprises me.  I did a lot of fussing cutting and layering to make the card pop.
