April SOTM Blog Hop - Color Your Life

We will be featuring April's SOTM, 
which is "Color Your Life", a set of 12 stamps.  
If you came here from Alyson Mayo'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.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog: HERE.  This month we have approximately 22 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the April 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!

I used the Make It From Your Heart Vol. 4  (9044)
pg 6 and 7 pattern # 1.
Gimme Some Sugar paper (X7228B)
Juniper CS (X5979) and ribbon (retired)
Nutmeg Card Stock (Z2830)
Blush Shimmer Ribbon (Z3313)
(photo looks more like gold??) 
White embossing power (Z2068)
In the Background stamp (D1750)
for 2 of the banners
The leaf pattern is a perfect match for the letter E

I thought this card is perfect for EASTER!  
Celebrating Life in Christ through His death and resurrection. 

A favorite song by Bill Gather has these words;  
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow
Because He lives, all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living, just because He lives.
My husband sang this song at my mother's funeral and our 
first born grandaughter's baptism.  It's a family favorite. 

Now "Hop" on over to Brenda Lapp's blog  to see her inspiring work!  Be sure to visit all the consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting ideas!  Please leave a comment, we love your feedback. Remember, the April SOTM is only available until April 30!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!


  1. Beautiful card and thought behind it.

  2. What a great card. I wouldn't have thought of those colors but it's great!

    1. Michelle, I agree, I saw the nutmeg on the table and it hit me that I really like it and haven't used it. Thennnnnnnn was stuck, wanted to use this month's paper, - a bit of a challenge.

  3. Nice use of the pattern book. I like your nature colors.

  4. I have to admit I have struggle to use nutmeg, but your card looks great!
