From The Heart Stamps - August Blog Hop!

I'm so pleased to have been asked to be a Guest Designer over at From The Heart Stamps for August and September! I've been joining in with the weekly sketch challenge and also the monthly progressive challenge for some time and I love using Faith's stamps, so you can imagine how pleased I was when I was asked!


At the start of each month their is a blog hop which showcases the fantastic work of the Design Team and this is the first hop I'm joining in with. Our theme this month is “Summer and Sunshine”.

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each entry. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win an image of their choice from the FTHS store. And additionally, one commenter on the From the Heart Stamps blog will be selected to win a $15 gift voucher to the store!

If you have arrived from Joanna (who is the other Guest Designer for August and September!), you are in the right place, if not why start on the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss anything.

Here is my creation:


I've used Tropical Chick digi stamp, coloured with Promarkers and I've used a scalloped Nesties die for the base. The sentiment is part of the digi set as well.

Now head over to Angela and see what they have created. Thanks for hopping with us today! And don't forget to leave a comment! The hop will end on Monday 4 August at 6am, EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday 6 August. Good luck!
