June SOTM blog hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring June's SOTM, which is Wonderful Friend.

If you have come here from Shannon Pelletier's blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Kathleen's Blog and start from the beginning.

This month we have (number of participants) Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one. Here we go!

This is a very simple card that I made. I used the "It's A Guy Thing" paper pack from CTMH, Wonderful Friend (June's SOTM), and a couple embellishments. All product, ink etc is from CTMH. This is an envelope style card and here are the instructions on how to re-create it.
