April SOTM Blog Hop


Oh my gosh can you believe it's already April? This month the featured stamp of the month is S1204-You Are..., a set of 15 amazing images!  Below are the images in this stamp set. I just love those background images with lines.

If you have come here from Vicki Price's blog, you are on the right path!  I am the first stop for this month's hop! You can find a list of all the participants (in case you get lost) here: http://bowlofstamps.blogspot.com/p/sotm-blog-hop-list.html  This month we have over 50 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this set. The hop is simple to follow - just click on the link provided in the post to move to the next blog!

My item is a 5.5" x 5.5" card made with the Victory Papers.  This is the card I made for my son who is a taxidermist.  This year at the Montana Taxidermy Association convention he took first place for his entry (which was a porcupine on a rock eating an elk antler.  He wasn't able to attend the banquet but found that after the banquet everyone was rushing to see his exhibit.  At the awards banquet he won Best of Show for Small Animal Class and Master of Division (this is given to the best animal out of all the professional entries of any kind entered under the Professional--over 350 entries).  But what was even more amazing is the judges gave him 100 on his score which just doesn't happen.  WOW!  I'm SO proud of him!  Anyway, here is my humble offering....

And here is a closer look at the dimensional elements of it:


Papers: Victory WOTG papers; Colonial White, New England Ivy, Barn Red, Outdoor Denim Card stocks
Stamps:  S1204 You Are...
Ink:   New England Ivy, Barn Red, Outdoor Denim Exclusive Ink
Embellishments:  Z1464 MilePost Shapes; Durables Round
Other: Bronze Glitz

And of course I have to show you the mount that won the Professional Division of this year's Montana Taxidermy Associations Convention. The judges said that they thought it looked like it would walk right off the rock it looked so real.




Time to hop on over to Helen Onulak's Blog to see her beautiful eye candy! Be sure to visit all the Consultants' Blogs to get some great crafting and other fun ideas! Remember, the SOTM is only available thru April 30th! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set for $5!
