Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!  For this hop we will be featuring the letter C. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “C” element will be featured in their post.


If you came from Lauren Moore – CTMH Craftings then you’re on the right track!

Be Happy Card by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Charlotte Paper Packet, Charlotte Complements, Live, Laugh, Love Stamp Set, Treasured Puffies, Ink Pads (Black, Sorbet), and White Daisy Cards & Envelopes Value Pack.

I chose the CHARLOTTE collection to make a CARD for the letter C.  This paper is so pretty and I have used up the entire packet.
