"This Moment" Blog Hop

Hello there!  Welcome to the Rose Blossom "This Moment" Blog Hop!  You may be coming from the lovely Marg's blog.  You are in the right place.  We are featuring the January Stamp of the Month, This Moment.  With a qualifying purchase, you can get this stamp set for only $5!  Check out my website at for more details.

I decided to focus on the "note" part.  What goes with notes?  A mailbox!  I took the Atriste Cricut Cartridge and made this cute mailbox.  The only papers I used were White Daisy and Cranberry.  I wanted to use as much of the stamp set as possible.  Using a very loosely colored "XOXO" stamp, with the Hollyhock Stamp Pad, I stamped the entire body of the box.  I used that stamp pad on everything except the "My aim is True".  That is done in the Cranberry Stamp Pad.
Everything is staying together with either Liquid glass or 3D Foam Tape.  To give it a little bling, just add a few Sparkles!
For every order, of $25.00, from now until January 15th, will get a ticket and be put into a drawing.  I will be giving away a bundle, of new, retired product. (1- "Free to be me" paper pack;
I put a lot of pictures in, hoping you would see how cute it really is.  It looks much better in person!

Now you are off to Shelly's Pretty Pieces.  You will love it!

Hope you enjoyed it!  Be Blessed!
