May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

Welcome to the May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring May's Stamp of the Month, Pinwheel, a set of 10 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.

The May Stamp of the Month is the perfect stamp set to use with your Dream Pop papers!  I love the fun bright colors!  I inked my pinwheels in VersaMark Ink and then embossed in white on the plain cardstock side of the Dream Pop papers.  My handle is a clear straw that I colored with my Copics!  My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at Mojo Monday, here is the original sketch if you would like to join in on the fun-

 I kept the inside blank, I can always add a sentiment later or I have plenty of room for a handwritten sentiment.
