December SOTM Blog Hop: Mad About You

Pin It
Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! If you are new to the hop, here is how it works: About 60 fellow Close to My Heart consultants all make a piece of art (scrapbook page, card, specialty item, etc) using the Stamp of the Month. They all include links to each other's blogs so that anyone can begin on any blog and hop from blog to blog which eventually becomes a big circle. Easy right?! It is a great way to view many different ideas using one stamp set which is available only that particular month, so don't miss out! Now let's get started. You can start here or if you've come here from Elizabeth Mindemann's Blog then you are on the right track. Here are the stamps that come in the Mad About You Stamp of the Month set:

My card uses the linen technique that is so much fun!  You simply take a Chocolate or Cocoa ink pad the drag it over your cardstock in a cross hatch pattern and it will make the paper look like it's linen.  Try it!
