December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the CTMH Rose Blossom team's stamp of the month blog hop!  Thanks so much for joining us!  I know you've seen some gorgeous work from my talented team-mates! If you've come from  Cathy's blog, you are headed in the right direction!

Well can you believe that it is December already? Right now my world is full of Christmas crafts, trees and ornaments, Secret Santa surprises and, of course, shopping, wrapping and sweet secret keeping! I even have a cute little elf named Sparkle creating mischief in my kindergarten classroom. :) BUT, honestly, it is 60 degrees here in Georgia this week and it is feeling a tad Spring-ish!  The December stamp of the month is also a breath of spring-- and, oh, so hard to resist!  The set features a candle, a mason jar, a string of twinkle lights and equally as sweet sentiments. I really, really, love it!

Instead of stamping the images on plain card stock, I decided to try stamping on a beautiful Close to My Heart PML card that was sprinkled with shiny gold dots!  I painted the mason jar and flowers with a combination of watercolors and alcohol markers. I mounted this on a card created with black card stock and La Vie En Rose paper embellished with pink polka dot "zip strip" and shiny gold adhesive trim.  I added a bow made with vintage CTMH gingham ribbon and-- voila!  All done!  :)

Now keep hopping to your next stop-- Kim Spark's blog, where I know you will find something wonderful to inspire you!
