August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the August Stamp of the
Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring August’s Stamp of the Month, A Chocolate Affair, a set of 16 stamps.  If you have came here from Laurie’s Blog,
you are on the right path.  The blog hop is a great big circle, you can
start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way,
you can find a complete list of participating consultants here.

I created my card with the ProPlayer papers.  A little out of the box for this paper line, but I really loved the Ruby red print!  I added a little texture to the slate print with second generation Ruby ink.  My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at Mojo Monday!

I went with the inspiration photo at Just Us Girls to make my “white chocolate” covered strawberries!  I love all chocolate, but white chocolate is my favorite!

 Check out these fabulous projects by the Close To My Heart!
