July Hearts of the West Blog Hop

Welcome to the July Hearts of the West Blog Hop!!  This month we are celebrating Canada Day and our theme is red and white!!  Did you know that Canada is 147 years old??  Once again this month we are hopping along with other CTMH consultants from the Hearts of the West Team.  So grab your drink of choice and hop along with us!!

If you came from Sonia St Jean's blog, then you're in the right place!!  If you're starting here, don't worry, it's a circular hop!!

Now, onto my card!!  I haven't ever really celebrated Canada day, so I don't have any pictures to make a layout, so I decided to make a card using red and white.  I took a CTMH card and cut it down to 4x4.  I then took a piece of white textured scrap and cut it to 3x3.  I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch, and a scrap of patterned paper to back it.  I then used CTMH's 3D foam tape to give the card a bit of dimension.  I used a CTMH heart stamp and Ruby ink for the sentiment.  I was inspired by Pinterest for the design of the card itself.  

A card like this would be really easy to make assembly style with or without help!!  Your next stop is Jackie Vandaele.

Thank you for joining us this month and we all look forward to next month's challenge. We all enjoy your comments and questions, so show your love and leave one for us. Contact your local consultant for any of the products shown, or to join us. You're welcome here!
