CTMH - Hearts of the West Blog Hop

I am a part of the Hearts of the West Close to My Heart Team. This team of CTMH Consultants have decided to do a fun blog hop to help inspire you.

Our fearless leader Nancy Klein chose our first colour challenge, CTMH Buttercup, Sorbet, New England Ivy, Gypsy and Lagoon as well as the basic colour pallet (browns, black & white).  

This is a circular blog hop, so no matter where you start if you keep going you will end back where you started and you can find a full list at the end of this post, just in case.

If you came from Janet McCormick then you're in the right order. 

Thanks for stopping buy and please feel free to comment. We just love reading them! 

Your next stop is Nancy Klein.

See you next month for our next Hearts of the West Team Challenge.
 Remember your welcome to join our amazing Close to My Heart team, just contact one of these consultants to get you started! if you need help just message any of us and we will direct you to the closest consultant to you!

All the products used on this card are from Close to My Heart.

I used Buttercup, Sorbet, Gypsy, Lagoon & White Daisy cardstock.

To embellish the card, I used Paradise Assortment Baker's Twine, Base & Bling Teal Jewels and the Damask Embossing Folder.

I used Big Hug, Hello Blooms, Just a Number and Ariana Scrapbooking Workshop stamp sets with Gypsy and New England Ivy inks.

Due to my concussion, I know that my memory isn't all that great, but I think this is the first card that I have made that I didn't use patterned papers.

My next Close to My Heart order is going in on Sunday, May 4, 2014.
