February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring February's Stamp of the Month, Home Sweet Home, a set of 4 stamps.  If you have came here from Tamra's Blog, you are on the right path.  The blog hop is a great big circle, you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find a complete list of participating consultants here.

 My card was created with the new Buzz & Bumble paper line.  This paper line has quickly became one of my favorites.  You will be able to order the great new products from the Spring/Summer catalog starting on February 1, 2013!  

 The faux wax seals are a new embellishment that coordinates with the kit.  The assortment comes with seals, wooden bees and flowers.  Super cute and super easy to embellish your projects with the self adhesive designs.  

My card is based on the sketch this week at Mojo Monday-

 It is round or square week.  I went with the square card at 5x5 in size.  I often get asked the sizes of my cards.  The vast majority of my regular cards are made 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, with the majority of my square cards being 5x5 in size.
