  Life gets busy!!  I seem to be going in many different directions so I decided to consolidate some of the things that I have been doing!   I'm still a very active Close to My Heart Maker!  I mainly post my artwork to my StampinHeaven Facebook Page and also to my StampinHeaven Group Page !  The Group page is for my customers (not other CTMH Makers) and more interactive!  If you would like to join my group page, make sure you answer the questions when asking to join the group!  If you don't answer, I don't 'open the door'!  :)   I also have an Instagram account!  Look for me @gmbscrapper There have been some changes to the Stamp of the Month artwork blog hop that I participated in.  Now we have a special group in Facebook that features the art for each Stamp of the Month and also some of the other active hops we did such as New Catalog artwork and other Specials. Each Stamp of the Month or special is featured in it's own Album.  I invite you to join that group!

I colored some sparkels with Blue Turquiose and Bright Pink Tr

January SOTM - Sweet Little Things Blog Hop

Welcome to our January Stamp of the Month Blog Hop . In this blog hop we are featuring Sweet Little Things.  This set includes 10 images! If you arrived here from  Maureen's Blog you are on the right track. This hop is a big circle. Just look for the next blog link at the bottom of my post. If you are just getting started on the hop, when you get back to me you will know you have completed the circle! If you get lost along the way, you can find the entire list of hoppers  HERE .   The cute little bear image made me think 'slimline' so I stamped him on a piece of White Daisy cardstock with Intense Black ink and then colored him with my Tri-Blend Markers.  I stamped the sentiment along the bottom and added an extra patch of flowers. To add a little interest to the card, I drew dashed lines to give the impression that the little bee has been flying all around the card!  I also added a few bitty sparkles. Products Used: Slimline Cards & Envelopes - X257 Sweet Little Thing
