Welcome to the July SOTM Blog Hop 
featuring "Bear Hugs":  An amazing set of 17 stamps which could be yours for only $5 when you make a purchase of $50.

 It will be fun to see stamping inspiration found on this hop. 
If you came here from Miss. Carrie's Creations
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 found hereThis month we have approximately 16 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the July 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 tried to include as many of the stamps as I could in this card and found I was able to use 10 stamps from the set of 17.
Materials used:
The bears were stamped with Charcoal ink
Charcoal was also used for the banner, sentiment, hearts and butterfly.  New England Ivy was used to color the white burlap ribbon, and to stamp the 2 sets of flowers,
the flowers were colored with Sapphire ink.
Everything was fussy cut - good therapy!
Papers used were from "Into the Wild paper pack", the chevron stickers were "stolen" from my July "Craft with Heart" subscription layout.

 Now "Hop" on over Kathy Burrows' Blog to to see her inspiring work!   Be sure to visit all the consultants at their blog to get some great crafting ideas!  Please leave a comment, we love your encouragement.  Remember, the July  SOTM is only available until July 31!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!
