CTMH December SOTM Blog Hop

December?? Already!

Life must be so full for me because I think this every time we reach the time for another blog hop! Another month gone by so soon. The good thing about it being December is that it means we are so close to my BIRTHDAY!

Welcome and thanks for "hopping" on by....stay for a minute to scroll through what I have for you this month... if you have hopped on over from Krista's blog then you are on the right path.
December's Stamp of the Month set is called AMORE.

If features 13 images relating to love and romance - words, hearts and borders, perfect for Valentine's projects or to just let your loved ones know how you feel.

I however am just not ready to jump out of the Christmas Spirit and when I saw that big word LOVE in the set I thought of God's love for us and decided to couple it with Everlasting Life stamp set (D1440) and added in Evergreen (D1315) to give it a Christmas twist.

For my card layout, I used ON THE EDGE from our Wishes "how to" book.

Used a little paper from the Passages paper packet.

Stamped with Cocoa, Chocolate, Olive, Barn Red and Honey.

Embellishments are Chocolate Ribbon and Opaques.

Images used from the Stamp of the Month set are "Love", heart, and the squirrely border - which is hearts on a curly line - I curved on my block to stamp around my corner circle for a round border rather than straight.

Now be sure to keep hopping along on over to Lori's blog for your next stop on the hop!

It's gorgeous! I love what you did with this set and am wondering why didn't I think of God's love?! I'm also amazed how well the heart and tree match. So neat!
