Hello Gorgeous CTMH Little Stinkers Stamp Of The Month S2305

Hello friends!  I hope you are taking time to do something fun.  It is already hot here in Southern CA.  I hate to see what the weather is like this summer.  

I have been having issues with my Crafting Mojo; but I finally got it to work during the middle of the night when I couldn't sleep.  LOL! I managed to get 2 cards created during two different nights.  We have a visitor to our yard, that loves to leave her smell regularly.  I have seen her a few times and she is really gorgeous!  I thought of her beauty when I saw this cute CTMH Little Stinkers SOTM; so I had to make a card using my new CTMH  "Hello Gorgeous" stamp set as well.  

I have never seen a Skunk as gorgeous as the one we have as a regular visitor.  I have seen her playing with another skunk that I assume is male; but she has also been here with little ones that are smaller than her.  We live in the city; so I am really surprised at the animals I see in our yard.  I grew up in the country and saw animals all the time; but I didn't expect them in the city.

CTMH has a video to demonstrate this CTMH Irresistibles Cardstock and the Alphabet also.

Thank you visiting my blog.  I hope you enjoy my creations.  I appreciate all of you.  Be sure to check out my tabs at the top of the page for my videos, tutorials, clubs, specials and  more. Call, text, Facebook message or email me with any questions you might have.

Click here for my new CTMH Videos. I added CTMH Workspace Wonder products to my desk a few years ago; and I was not able to use my video recorder on my desk after I did that.  It took me a long time to finally come up with a way to do videos with that same recorder; but on a different arm/holder.  Thanks for your patience. 

Remember - Keep On Creating!!
It's Good For Your Health!!

  3. That little stinker is adorable! I see raccoons and possums all the time but I haven't seen a skunk around here in ages. Their natural habitat is slowly getting smaller so they have to venture off into urban areas. Thanks for joining us at the Jan's Digi Stamps Challenge.
