Hearts of the West July Blog Hop

Happy Canada Day!

Welcome back to the Hearts of the West Team Blog Hop July Edition.

If this is your first time joining us...you will love it. It features Close to My Heart Consultants from the Hearts of the West Team who are from all over Canada and is founded by Nancy Klein. This month's challenge is a celebration of our beloved Country's Birthday.

A fun little fact...Canada is turning 147 years old.

This month our challenge is to use Red & White.

This month is a fun challenge for sure, we are able to use the basic colour palette (black, brown & grey) for accent colours.

For this Christmas card I used CTMH Santa Claus Stamp Set (returning in the new 2014-2015 Idea Book), CTMH Ruby Cardstock, CTMH Sparkle and Shine Paper (retired) and CTHM White Daisy Cardstock, CTMH Cranberry Ink, CTmh Red Shimmer Tape, and CTMH Silver Shimmer Tape .
Grab your coffee, sit down and join us on a journey of creative paper crafts from the Heart!

If you came from Justine Hovey , you are in the right place. This is a go around blog hop, so you can start anywhere you would like. In case you need it, the full list is at the bottom of this post.

Your next creative stop is Anna Miller.

Thank you for joining us this month and we look forward to you joining us again on August 1st for our next month's challenge.

We all enjoy your comments and questions, please feel free to leave them on any of our posts. You can also contact your local consultant for any of the products shown or to join our team. You are more than welcome here!
