Stamp of the Month Blog Hop -- Candlelight Garden

Welcome to the December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

If you came from visiting Angela White, then you are in the right place.  If you just happened upon my little corner of the blog world, simply start here and continue hopping until you return here -- our fun hop is one big loop for your viewing pleasure. 

The month's featured stamp set is S1512 Candlelight Garden (pictured below).  This set is only available until November 30th and is only $5 with a $50 Close to My Heart purchase.

As soon as I saw this set, I was in LOVE.  That mason jar is simply adorable!!  And those flowers... how fun to color either with ink or watercolors.  And that candle... you can make any color candle you want/need with a little ink or watercolors.  How cool!!  I don't make a ton of friend cards, but can see myself mixing this set up with other sentiments from my collection.

For today's card, I combined Candlelight Garden with the Georgie paper packet -- another LOVE!  While this paper packet is deemed a "baby" collection, don't let that fool you!  Only one pattern of the six on the B&T's is really baby-ish.  The rest are simply soft, beautiful patterns in a semi-neutral pallet.  I absolutely love the combination of the Juniper, Canary, and Slate / Whisper.
