Joyful Stars May Blog Hop

 photo JoyfulStarsBlogHopBadge3_zpsa824a544.jpg
Welcome to the Joyful Stars May blog hop, where a group of talented Close to My Heart consultants, and me, gather to share ideas with you in a fun blog hop.  
CTMH just released their newest Seasonal Expressions catalog, full of new products.  For my card, I've used one sheet of new double sided paper from the Magical paper pack to make this locking gate fold card.

Card #1

* Challenges to which I am submitting this card can be found at the bottom of the post.
We made a card similar to this in Joyce's card class and I really like the fold.  The card below uses stamps from the May Stamp of the Month.  Scroll down or use the link to see the inside and the other cards we made with this set.
The die cuts on my Father's Day card are from the CTMH Artistry Cricut Cartridge.
The sentiment and frame stamps are from the 
CTMH Framed stamp set. 

Now, since this is a blog hop you might have arrived here from Marie's blog.
Your next stop is Andrea Sherman'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.

Don't go yet!
Here's a second Father's Day card I made following this week's Mojo Monday Sketch # 447 and using the same Magical paper packet and a CTMH Happy Father's Day Stamp (M1134).
Card #2
