CardMaker Magazine and The Stamps of Life Blog Hop

Hello everybody!
Today, CardMaker Magazine (blog) and The Stamps of Life are having a Blog Hop.
 
If you came from Jeanne Streiff's blog, you are in the right place. If you are lost, or just happened to pop in, you can start the blog hop at CardMaker Magazine Blog.

The design teams (CardMaker Blog and The Stamps of LIfe) has come together to bring you lots of inspiration and beautiful cards.  Stephanie Bernard, owner of The Stamps of Life have tons of beautiful stamps and it was hard for me to choose which of the stamp sets to feature for this blog hop.
So I finally decided to make 2 cards.

For my first card, I used the stamps from the  Tress2Build Stamp set
This set comes 2 tree trunk designs and several leaf patterns, a couple little birds and some sentiments that you can use all year round.


For my second card,  I used stamps from the Branches4flowers Stamp set.  
This set comes with flower images in variety of sizes, 4 different leaf designs and sentiments that you can also use all year round.



The Stamps of Life will be hosting a giveaway of three stamp sets ($12.95 value or less) to one winner on their blog. So be sure to visit all the blogs for a chance to win!

Your next stop  -------> Kim Pargeter

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful week ahead.
