Hearts of the West 4th Blog Hop Challenge

Welcome to the Hearts of the West Team Blog Hop - August Edition! If this is your first time joining us you will love it. It features Close to My Heart Consultants from all over Canada and it is founded by Nancy Klein.

This month's challenge is a colour challenge brought to you by Design Seed and hand picked by Nancy Klein.

A few fun facts about August: It is National Picnic Month. Also, this month's birth flowers are the beautiful Gladiolus and the Poppy.

If you came from Chantal Pearson then you are in the right place. This is a go around blog hop, so you can start anywhere! Just in case, the full list is at the bottom. So, as always, grab your coffee, tea or water...relax and hop around the country with us.

Your next stop is Freya Hall Dunbar. Thanks for joining us this month and we hope you come back on September 1st to join us again!

I used Close to My Heart's Seaside Paper Packet with CTMH's Canary, Pear, Outdoor Denim, Glacier and Whisper cardstocks. CTMH Buttercup & Sky have been discontinued, so I substituted with our New Colours.

To embellish the card, I used CTMH's Artbooking Cricut Cartridge to cut out the butterflies and the inside sunshine stencil, CTMH's Border Scallop Punch, CTMH Outdoor Denim brads (discontinued), CTMH Sponge with Canary ink and the zig zag stitch on my sewing machine with thread from Fabricland.

I used CTMH's Casual Expressions, In the Background and Brushed Scrapbooking Workshop stamp sets with CTMH Pear, Sorbet and Glacier inks.
