*Time to Celebrate* Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our
May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop
featuring this month's SOTM:
Time to Celebrate S2005

If you've just arrived here from
then you are on the correct path.

Today I'm sharing THREE standard-size cards
I created using the SOTM and the NEW for
May/June "Stitched Together" Picture My Life cards!

I decided to keep my cards simple this time
to show off the beauty of these sentiments.
There's a sentiment that could fit just about any
upcoming occasion, so I'm betting this will quickly
 become one of my "most frequently used" sets.
Pretty much everything you see here that is Black
is an image from this set stamped with an Intense 
Black ink pad. I've embellished with Black & White
 Dots, which are some of my favorite frequently
used embellishments also.

 Card #1 - Cut 1/4" off of the top and 
1/2" off of the bottom of 4x6 PML card.
Trim 3x4 PML card with scissors.

Card #2 - Cut 3/4" off of the top of 4x6 PML card.
Fussy cut the butterfly out of the 4x6 PML card
with micro-tipped scissors. The Sapphire blue
elements I added to this card later as an "afterthought"
are scraps (backside of Sweetleaf plaid PML
that I used for card #3 shown below).

Card #3 - Cut 3/4" off of one side of 4x6 PML card.
Cut 1/2" off of the top and bottom of 3x4 PML card 
(use those small strips if you want to have a 2x4 scrap
to use later for something else OR don't cut and use 
the entire 3x4 card as a layer). Stamp sentiment on
small scrap of 1/2" by 3" white daisy cardstock
 and "banner-tail cut" the ends.

Now you can continue on with the blog hop
