Hi everyone...and welcome to the SOTM Blog Hop!  I just arrived back today from Convention 2013 for CTMH and do I have some exciting news to share with you....check back real soon for some sneak peeks, new product previews and much more.  Before we start I want to Thank You for all the well wishes, text messages, emails, and phone calls at passion for paper crafting grows more and more each day and your wonderful complements, comments and concerns for my health truly touched my heart.  
During the next few days I will be posting photos of my artwork presented during Friday's General Session, along with some new kits and classes.   Now lets get to the hop....
If you are coming here from Pamela Ellison's Blog you're on the right path.....and if you get lost along the way, its easy to get back on track, just go to Helen Onulak's Blog for a full list of hoppers.  This month's featured stamp set is "Sweet Life".  We have 54Consultants participating....make sure you hop through to see them all.

 Using the Cricut Artiste Cartridge I cut the card on page 58 at 5.25 inches using Ruby cardstock for the insert and Colonial White cardstock for the card sleeve.

The bow was added using Black Tulle Ribbon, Black Neutral Assortment, Ruby Metallic Baker's Twine, and a piece of red poke-a-dot ribbon (this item is not CTMH).
The Thanks sentiment is from the Casual Expressions stamp set D1525 and the poke-a-dot paper is from the Dream Pop Paper Packet.
