Joyful Stars Close To My Heart January 2017 Blog Hop

Welcome to the first 
Close to My Heart Joyful Stars Blog Hop of 2017.  
Have some fun hopping between the blogs of this group of talented Close to My Heart consultants, and me, where we share creative projects using CTMH products.

Using some quilt pattern cards, I thought I'd give you a glimpse of two new paper packs from the Seasonal Expressions Catalog. 
My first card features the Hello Lovely paper and the new Some Kind of Wonderful stamp set , which is bundled with matching thinlit dies.

I love the new Blush Shimmer Ribbon 
and the new Sugar Rush Dots.
If you'd like to see a few more cards using the Hello Lovely paper, scroll down a few posts on my blog.  
Quilt cards are great for using up scraps!

My second card features the Sugar Rush paper. 
 The flowers (from the Dec. 2016 SOTM set) were stamped on patterned paper from the pack.  And although all of the products I used are from CTMH, the puffy butterflies, heart embossing folder and sentiment stamp are retired.

Now, since this is a blog hop, 
you might have arrived here from Andrea Sherman's blog.
Your next stop is my friend, Betty Locco's blog.   
 The hop is circular. So if you are just starting here, simply continue hopping until you find your way back, making the full circle.  If you get lost, the complete list of participants is on Joyce's blog.
Hope you enjoy the hop!  
Thanks for stopping, or should I say "hopping" by.
