National Stamping Month #30yearsofhappy Blog Hop

Welcome to the #30yearsofhappy Blog Hop!

When you make a qualifying purchase of $30, you can receive this C-sized stamp set for free.

For the #30yearsofhappy Blog Hop I am following [[[ Gina Brandstetter ]]]. There are almost 40 Close To My Heart Independent Consultants participating in the #30yearsofhappy Blog Hop. If you are just starting the hop you can keep visiting the next blogger until you get back here - it is one big circle. If you get lost somewhere along the way, a complete list of all participants can be found on Melinda Everitt's blog.

My first card is inspired by Triple Tag Fun™ on page 53 of the Originals Card Confidence Program™ (9036).

In addition to the National Stamping Month #30yearsofhappy stamp set, other Close To My Heart Products used are: 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" White Cards & Envelopes, Value Pack (X254), Chalk It Up Paper Packet (X7184B), White Daisy Cardstock (1385), Exclusive Inks® Stamp Pads in Lagoon (Z2195), Sorbet (Z2164) and Black (Z2105), Sponge Daubers Value Pack (Z1938), Sequins Gold Assortment (Z2012), Sparkles Clear Assortment (Z1752) and 3L® E-Z Dots® Adhesive (Z3022). The tag is from Art Philosophy (#M472AA). I used the Hide Contour feature in Cricut® Design Space.

I think we will be sending this card to someone who lost their husband a year ago this month to let her know that we are thinking of her on this sad anniversary.

I am sorry about the quality of the photo below. I had to take the photo when it was already dark outside and using the flash did not make it better.

I had been staring at the #30yearsofhappy stamp set for quite awhile and I kept coming back to the "You + Me" and anchor images. I just started stamping and playing and this is the card I ended up with. For this card the Close To My Heart Products used are: 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" Colonial White Cards & Envelopes, Value Pack (X1410), Seaside Paper Packet (X7192B), Colonial White (1388), Champagne (X5931) and Glacier (X5770) cardstocks, Exclusive Inks® Stamp Pads in Champagne (Z2174) and Glacier (Z2641), Sponge Daubers Value Pack (Z1938), 3L® E-Z Dots® Adhesive (Z3022) and 3-D Foam Tape (Z1151).

If you do not a have CTMH Independent Consultant, you may purchase the stamp set and all of the supplies I used to create this layout at my online business address.

Thank you for participating in the hop. Before you move on to the next stop on the hop I would be delighted if you left a comment letting me know what you think of my cards. Our next blogger is [[[ Pam Trostle ]]].

I hope you are enjoying the #30yearsofhappy blog hop.
