June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

Welcome to our first monthly Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! On the 15th of each month we will be showcasing the current SOTM set with various projects created by talented Close to my Heart consultants. If you are visiting from Judith, then you are on the right track.  If not, please start at the beginning with our hostess Pam!

Life is tweet with the set for June! So many options with this set! You can do birthdays, anniversaries, or just general thinking of you projects. The possibilities are endless!  I knew I had to have this set when I saw the play on words they use with "tweet."  I am a total sucker for that, and with my cricut cartridges, I have lots of birds to choose from.  ;)  Also, just a side note, THIS IS MY FIRST BLOG HOP!!!!  Woot!  I am a bit excited!

Here is my creation:
 This is a standard size A2 card (4.25 x 5.5)
 Inside sentiment:
 The balloon stamp inspired me to use color on this particular card.  The White Daisy cardstock really makes them POP!  I also used to be one of those people who thought they would NEVER take the time to cut out and use stamped images other than the easy-peasy cricut cuts, lol--never say never!
 Tied the balloons up with a piece of baker's twine so they wouldn't get away.
 Here is a little tip too.  I wanted to draw the string lines on the card behind some of the balloons, so I just placed a little dot at the place where each should start.  This allowed me to remove all of the balloons at the same time and left plenty of room for drawing the lines.  :)

Here is a complete list of CTMH supplies for this card:
