August Hearts of the West Blog Hop

Welcome to the August Heart of the West Blog Hop!!  I hope you have been enjoying this hop!!  We have some very talented people, and a great color palette to work with this month!!

If you have come from Donna Thomson-Digby's blog, then you're in the right place!!  Don't worry if you get "lost", this is a circular hop, so you can join in anywhere!

For this month, I made 2 cards.  My first card uses the masking tape technique, that a fellow CTMH sister shared, and I really wanted to try it!!

I used whisper, sky and sorbet for the background, and stamped my image with outdoor denim and pear.  The stamp is from SU, and I used grey wool twine from CTMH.

My second card I really wanted to try the "smack down" technique, but I just wasn't satisfied with the way it was turning out so I went a whole other way.

The stamp I used was a hostess stamp, and is no longer available.  So cute though!!  :)  So there you have it, those are my projects for this month.

Your next stop is: Holly Young-Bowers's blog.  I hope you are enjoying this hop, and I hope you are able to join us next month as well!!  Below is a list of everyone participating this month.
