What A Hoot Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  This month's stamp is called "What A Hoot". This adorable stamp set is only available through the end of August. If you have come here from April Nourse's blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants at Melinda Everitt's blog.

This month we have over sixty Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great Close To My Heart products on their blogs. A blog hop is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!
I am using our new Scaredy Cat paper. Every consultant I know breathed a happy sigh when they saw this paper. I used the flower stamp (included in the set) as treat bags for my owls. I even braided the bag handles with 3 different colors of embroidery floss. P.S. My husband thinks I'm nuts. LOL If you are looking close enough, you may have already noticed the skinny pumpkins. Those came from the party hat stamp. The leaves are also part of the flower stamp. I love to paper-piece and this stamp is perfect for both coloring and paper-piecing. One more note before you continue on your journey, and it's probably not the first time you've heard it tonight, but I really love our new ShinHan alcohol markers. They provide rich, even color with no paper pilling. So awesome!
