Joyful Stars Blog Hop – Sugar Rush

joyful-stars-blog-hop-badgeWelcome to January’s Joyful Stars blog hop.  If you’ve arrived here from Nickie’s blog you are on the right path.  If you started here, that’s fine too – we’re a circular hop so if you follow the links at the end of each post you’ll end up right back where you started.

I am in love, love, love with the new Sugar Rush paper packet.  It has the perfect blends of brights and pastels.

I also love finding a card for inspiration and then giving it some twists and turns and making it my own.  This card was inspired by one from consultant Karen Pedersen (you can see her card here).  The January stamp of the month, Adore You, has the perfect blend of hearts, flowers and the absolute best choices of sentiments all for just $5 US with a qualifying purchase.

If you’d like to purchase any of the Close to My Heart items I’ve featured I’d be happy to help (you can click here to go to my business page) or you can contact your own Close to My Heart Consultant.

I’d love it if you’d take a minute to leave me a comment and then hop on over to Michelle’s blog where I’m sure you’ll find delightful artwork.

Thanks again for stopping by.
