April SOTM Blog Hop!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our
April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop
featuring this month's SOTM: 
Balloon Talk S1404 

If you've just arrived here from SHIRLEY's BLOG,
then you are on the correct path.
 This month I created this standard-size Card
featuring the Lollydoodle papers X7183B
(Cotton Candy, Juniper, Pear, Slate, and White Daisy).
Easter is coming on April 20th, so I thought it would be fun
to also include these cute Easter Chicks also from the
Easter Wishes stamp set B1422 (Spring/Summer 2013 Idea Book, p. 65).
 Even though this stamp set isn't featured in our current Idea Book,
it is Cricut compatible (Art Philosophy) and is still available for purchase.
Notice that the April SOTM, Balloon Talk, is also Cricut compatible (Artiste)
and I also used the Artiste Cartridge to cut the grass for the Card above as well
(p. 73, cut Pear cardstock at 3/4").
Here are all of the images (below) included in the "Balloon Talk" stamp set
that is available during April 2014 only:
Now you can continue with the hop and be inspired
