 Welcome to the Rose Blossom Blog Hop.  We have our Hops on the 1st and 15th of each month and we feature promotions from the current month. A great way to show you ideas, tips and different ways to create and preserve memories using Close to My Heart's beautiful products. 

If you hopped over from Cathy's Blog These Eager Hands, you are on the right path....Cathy is so creative and I'm sure you enjoyed the beautiful artwork she shared. 
The Stamp of The Month for March is Sunshine Birdies and it is adorable.  Two sentiments and lots of Happy Springtime Goodness.
Each month you can purchase a new D-size stamp set, available for one month only, for just $5. When you place an order of $50 or more in Close To My Heart products, you qualify for this special Stamp of the Month pricing.

I paired our beautiful paper Charlotte with this darling stamp set.  An unlikely pair..but I must say it tells our story perfectly. 
The birdie, twig, butterflies and sentiment are painted with our watercolor paints.

A little strip of our Slate Ribbon on top and bottom pulled this simple layout together.
These are the supplies I used for this layout:
Stamp of the Month Sunshine Birdies
Charlotte Paper Pack and complements
Watercolor Paints & Brushes
Slate Ribbon (on clearance for $1.40)
Inks : Archival Black, Whisper and Slate
You can find them all HERE on my website. 
The next "Stop on the Hop" is Kim's Blog Memories In Thyme where I'm sure you'll see something amazing.
Thanks for stopping by.  See you soon!
