Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring May's SOTM, which is Friendship Bouquet, a set of 8 stamps. I love this favorite flowers are sunflowers so when I saw this set I squealed with delight!!!

This month we have close to 60 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This 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.....
Here's the card I made:

More Dotty

I took just one piece of Dotty paper and made these cards. 

The last one is the back side of the yellow and grey paper.  I used the stamp of the Month "You Are" on most of the cards.

Here are a couple more cards I did at the same time.
This is using the Superhero Paper and Stamp set...great for a boy's card!

On this card I used Fashionista Stamp set, Florentine Paper and the Sparkles
