For my project I did a card style that I was taught this past weekend a team meeting of the "Light Hearted Lovelies" by Mel. I turned my 11 stamp set intom 14. I had to make this style card so what was a girl to do. Yep you guessed it. I cut my stamp. shhh. I do that all the time with "My Acrlyic" from "Close to my Heart" it is soo easy.

There are 10 participants this month. If you get lost along the way you can see the entire list of hoppers on Rachel's Blog. Let's get started.

I've been having so much fun using the new products from the NEW "Close To My Heart" Fall/Winter 2012 Idea Book that I thought I would use some of the bits & pieces I have left over from some of my new project. There were so many beautiful shades greens, so my inspiration was born.

Today I am showcasing a card from "Make It From Your Heart" and have used many of the new paper packs that have shades of green along with cardstock in Topiary, Olive & New England Ivy. I also used Dard Chocolate Grograin RibbonMini-Melody Accents Antiqued Gold Collection, Words of Comfort Stamp set which I embossed with Gold
Now hop on over to Wendy's Blog for more ideas of using up your stash. Thank you have hopping by and come back often and visit my website.
