From the Heart Stamps June Blog Hop



Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. Our theme this month is "one for the boys". Our designers are showcasing lots of gorgeous projects. I always struggle with making manly cards, so I can't wait to get lots of inspiration from the DT!

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each entry. One random commenter will be selected from each blog to win the image that the designer used. And additionally, one commenter on the From the Heart Stamps blog will be selected to win a $5 gift voucher to the store!

If you have arrived from the very talented Jo's Blog, you are in the right place, if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss anything.

Here is my project using French Mustache Birdbrain. This will be headed to my son's French teacher at preschool. Who would think, French in preschool?? It's Finn's favorite subject, I always catching him practicing at home, too cute!




Now head over to Kelly's blog and see the beautiful card she made.

Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Monday June 9th at 6am, EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday June 11th.
