Simon Says Stamp May 2013 Card Kit Blog Hop (& GIVEAWAY)


 
Hi everyone!

Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp May 2013 Card Kit Blog Hop!

It's finally starting to feel like Spring around here! Yay! What better way to officially welcome the start of the season than with a blog hop featuring the amazing May card kit: May Flowers.

The Simon Says Stamp monthly card kits are always such an incredible value! They sell for $24.95 if you buy them individually. With a subscription they are only $19.95 plus S&H/ month! This is a great saving on an already great price and ensures that you won't miss out! (The last 2 months have sold out).

Here's a look at this month's kit with it's fabulous Best Mom Ever stamp set, gorgeous embossed/die cut card front, yummy papers, fun chipboard hearts, and so much more! I love the muted pinks, greens, and browns in this month's kit. This kit is an obvious one for Mother's Day but also works perfectly for dads, weddings, anniversaries, etc.

Here are two cards I made for the hop using the same sketch. One is for Mother's Day...
