February's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop..."A Happy Hello"

Welcome to the CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!
February 2015's Stamp of the Month is called.....
****A Happy Hello****

With over 60 participants in this blog hop, you are sure to find lots of great inspiration to start the new year!.  It makes a circle, so if you are starting here just continue until you make your way back and you will have made it through them all. If you have already started and are coming from Justine Hovey's blog, then you are on the right track.

This month, Close To My Heart's Stamp of the Month set is full of flowers and how can you go wrong with flowers?  Even though flowers should be a no-brainer, I checked out several challenge blogs for inspiration. Even though I didn't end up using any of the sketches and color palettes, I was inspired by so many of the clean and simple cards that I saw.  When I saw that Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog was having a CAS challenge, I decided to go with it.  

I love CAS cards, but I don't do many. When I have created them...even with the two I made for this hop, I often feel like the card just isn't finished. What can I say? I'm always in awe that people are able to control themselves when it comes to bling, ribbon, layers, etc. :)
