December SOTM Blog Hop- Mad About You

Hello, and welcome to our final blog hop of 2011.
If you have arrived here from
 then you are on the right track.
Keep on hopping, it's a great big loop
of awesome artwork and ideas. 

It's hard to believe that we are so close
to celebrating another new year.

Is your holiday shopping done? 
Are your cards finished and ready to mail?
If you are like me, then the answer to both of those questions is "no".
I am using moving to a new state 
a couple of weeks ago as my excuse, what's yours?

It's a good thing I finished my card for December BEFORE the move, since my craft supplies are still a bit scattered . In fact my entire ink tower was MIA until just a couple of days ago. Luckily a rescue dig mission into my temporary storage unit was successful and the missing ink tower and camera were on with the SOTM post.

This month's set is called Mad About You and it is full of lovely images and sentiments to celebrate love and Valentine's Day. There are even three of the images that coordinate with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge!

As soon as I saw this set I knew what I wanted to do. The "Over The Moon in Love with You" tag just begged to be used with a moonlit scene. So here is the card I created...

I used one of my favorite sets, Childhood Portrait for the sweet couple on the bench as well as the trees and the grass. I just love the silhouette images in the Childhood portrait set and have used them over and over again. The moon was masked out with a circle punched from a post-it-note while I sponged the sunset with large foam texture tools. Remove the circle and viola' a full moon! The window was cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and kraft paper. I love how the scalloped edge of the card front looks kind of like an awning and finishes off the scene perfectly. This would be a sweet card for that special someone in your life, or even for a wedding or anniversary.

Supplies Used:
Elemental Level 2 Paper Pack
Kraft Die Cut Cards
Exclusive Inks in Chocolate, Sorbet and Pacifica
November SOTM - Mad About You
Childhood Portrait
Sorbet Stitched ribbon
Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge

Thanks for looking, no hop on over to 
to see what amazing art she has made. 

Remember that you can only get the awesome set
through the month of December so be sure Santa knows if it is on your list!
