CTMH June SOTM blog hop

It's so hard to believe that it's the first day of June!  Thank you for visiting our  CTMH  SOTM blog hop.  If you have been following the blog hop from the beginning, then you should have come here from  Wanda Riley's blog . If you just came across this hop by chance, then you can continue from here and just click on the person listed at the end of this post.  When you get back to me you know you've seen them all. 


 The June SOTM is perfect for the generally neglected masculine cards.Wonderful Friend D1422 is a great set of 9 stamps. When I started creating this card, I had no plans of using the obvious "Father's day tie".  However, things don't always turn out how you think they will.  I have moved my stamping room (SUCH a huge mess) downstairs and ran across our display boards from the CTMH convention in 2001 that had been tucked away in a corner.  This was my first year of teaching at the CTMH annual convention.  There was this old card pattern that I hadn't used since then...and guess what...PERFECT for the tie.  The more I played, the more I liked the card, pictured both closed and open.


















Here are the measurements in case you want to make one of your own.  Card size is 51/2 by 8 1/4.  Score at 2" and 4 3/4".  I used the new Passages paper packet, which was kind of the obvious choice. I wish you all a wonderful Father's Day and I'll see you in the beginning of July for the next SOTM blog hop!  Now hop on over to   Sarita Schraeder's blog to see what fun things she did with this stamp set!

Remember, the June SOTM is only available until June 30, 2010!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even FREE!
