Bloom & Grow - January SOTM Blog Hop...



Welcome this month's SOTM Blog Hop...and the first of 2018!!! We're glad you're here and hope you find some inspiration with BLOOM & GROW!


If you've come from Darlys's Blog, you're on the right track...it's a great big circle so you'll hop on around 'till you get back to where you started. If you get lost along the way, you can always access the full list {{{here}}}.

Now...let me show you the card I made using this "springy" and very inspirational stamp set...

-----------------------------------------------
I took the largest image in the set and masked it to look like vines coming out of the focal strip...I cut one of the sentiments apart so I could use half on the front and the rest on the inside...

----------------------------------------
Here's a peek at the inside sentiment...you can't really tell by this photo, but I used the HOTTEST COLOR of this year, Bashful, to stamp a heart over the "all year"...


Thanks for stopping by...to continue with the FUN, hop on over to Jean's Blog and see what she has to share!

Don't forget that this stamp set is only available during the month of January!
