September SOTM: Thriller Blog Hop

Pin It Welcome to the September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! The Autumn/Winter Idea Book is now LIVE!!  If you are one of my customers or don't have a consultant then you can view the book on my website here.  Now onto the blog hop...  If you came here from Traci Godbee's blog then you are on the right track. If you are new to the blog hop then just start here and hop from blog to blog following the links to wonderful SOTM artwork done by fellow Close to My Heart consultants. If you get lost along the way then you can see the complete list of blog hop participants here

Here is my card this month and I hope you enjoy it. I got the idea from a magazine, but I'm sorry I can't remember which one.  It's simple, but I love quick cards anyway.  Please feel free to leave a comment if you like it or if you have any questions. Thanks!
