Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Celebrate With Cake

Welcome to the May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

If you came from visiting Marie Flayer, 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 S1605 Celebrate With Cake (pictured below).  This set is available until May 31st and is only $5 with a $50 Close to My Heart purchase.

For today's project, I decided to scraplift myself.  Strange, I know... but I loved this card I made and shared last week using the now-retired Regatta collection so I just had to make another one.

This time, I used the May Spotlight Collection -- Georgie.  While this collection presents itself as a "baby" collection, I've found it it truly anything but.  Yes, the elephant B&T as well as the coordinating complements make Georgie a great baby collection, but the rest of the B&T designs as well as the color combination are simply fabulous for almost any theme.

Because I loved playing with Celebrate with Cake so much, I have a special bonus project for you today!
