December SOTM Blog Hop ~ Candy Cane Alphabet

Welcome to the December SOTM Blog Hop
Candy Cane Alphabet

We will be featuring the December SOTM, which is "Candy Cane Alphabet", a set of 44 stamps!!  
  It will be fun to see stamping inspiration found on this hop. 
If you came here from Lauren Moore'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 14 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the December 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 love the word JOY - and as I was thinking about what word I could stamp with this image, keeping in mind I need Christmas cards, I realized the word Joy was perfect - and I could add some holiday "JOY" using a wreath for the "O".  I found wreaths in two CTMH Cricut cartridges; several in Flower Market and one in Artistry.  My favorite is the  Pine Berry Wreath in the Cricut Flower Market Collection and used Fern for the Wreath and  Candy Apple for the Candy Canes.  The scalloped squares are from the Cricut Artbooking collection.  The red ribbon is from a strip of white and gold ribbon cut in 1/2 and colored with Candy Apple ink using a sponge dauber. 

Now "Hop" on over to Gina Brandstetter'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 encouragement.  Remember, the December SOTM is only available until December 31!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!
