July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!!!

Seriously!?! How can it be July already!!! How time flies when you are having fun…

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!


This month we are featuring the July SOTM from the 2011 Spring/Summer Idea Book, which is D1458 American Celebration, a set of 12 My Acrylix Stamps. If you have come here from Adeline's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.

Well, I thought this would be as good as time as any to officially announce that I am now a new Heart 2 Heart Design Team Member! I am so excited to be joining this wonderfully talented & creative group of women who will be sharing weekly inspiration over at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog. My first official post will go up Monday, July 4th, so be sure to check back here then. I hope you will join me in our weekly challenges and I can’t wait to see what you create!
