It's time for a technique challenge with some brackets, and no, we're not talking March Madness! (If you're already hopping, then you've probably arrived from Wendy's blog, and from here you'll click on her name to continue on to Alyson's blog.) For my cards, I used the Stitched Scalloped Thin Cuts with the Serenity collection.

Close To My Heart is proud to support Operation Smile, a charitable organization that provides cleft palate surgeries for children in need. (You can learn more HERE.) Did you know that you could round up your order and give your change to Operation Smile? It only takes $240 to change a child's life! This year, the Operation Smile stamp set is Every Bit of Wonderful, and $7 from its sales go to Operation Smile. Join me on this blog hop to show off this pretty set. (If you're already hopping, then you've probably arrived from Michelle's blog. From here, you'll visit Becca's blog next.
On a 3.75"x5" White Daisy cardstock panel, I random stamped floral images in Sapphire to cover the cardstock. I cut the sentiment brackets with my new Simple Brackets Thin Cuts and both the Blue Belle glitter paper and Sapphire cardstock layers with the Fancy Borders die cuts. The sentiment is stamped in Sapphire.
Thanks for letting me share these two card ideas with you. Every CTMH fan needs this stamp set in their collection! Please leave a comment before you hop to the next blog. You won't want to miss the beautiful project that BECCA has on her blog for you!

Welcome to the December stamp of the month featuring Happiness Never Grows Old! You will love the beautiful floral designs and sentiments in this set, so hop along to get lots of great ideas. (If you're already hopping then you've probably arrived from Michelle's blog. From here, you'll visit Becca's blog next.
If you're a regular visitor, then you'll know that I don't love to color, so I wanted to show off this beautiful set without coloring it (although I will be challenging myself with some coloring techniques later this month). Toile was my inspiration. All three of my cards feature our color of the year, Blue Belle.
Thank you for letting me share these cards with you. I know you're going to see some fabulously creative ideas with this set, and hopefully I've shown you that simple can also be pretty (if I do say so myself). I'd love a comment before you visit the incredibly talented Becca next!
